  2. So Sorry about this. I posted on Facebook also. Hope you get it back.
  3. i am a carpenter with my own business and work on a lot of old houses in our town. An older fellow called me for some work and we went over and did it. I asked him if he liked old cars and he said yes very much. i showed him a picture of my 31 Franklin but he didn't believe it was my car. I said the next nice Saturday or Sunday I will be over. A week and a half ago my son and myself went to his house. He almost s@#t himself. He was so happy. We went for a long ride and he could not thank me enough. He was almost crying he was so happy. Really made my day and showed my teenage son what life is all about . This is one of the best parts of our hobby . By the way turns out he was a retired forklift mechanic and he GAVE me his complete set of Snap on tools . You never know .
  4. I collect dash plaques and have been doing so for a while. If you want to get rid of them let me know. i will pay all postage. If you were a little closer I would drive to your house.
