Post a Picture of your Car

Recommended Posts

Had a 1928 "General Motors Truck" 1 Ton Model with the Pontiac "Split Head" Six Cylinder engine in it! Great combination; back about 1967!

still plenty of bits to refit, but she looks superb in the pale yellow, with a White Pearl in the top coats.

WOW! That looks great! Did you paint it yourself?

No, thats one thing I have never tried. The paint shop had the car for about 3 weeks, it required a few smal rust repairs, and they were very small.

Certainly not a Concours paint job at mega expense, but a very good job, at an even better price, and one where I am happy to drive the car as often as possible without worry of damage.

This moves the car from the 20 foot category back to a close inspection one.

Only a couple of people have seen the car at present and they are all impressed with the job.

It is back to me though to refit all the trim. Nearly completed now, just the Continental Kit to refit now. :)

Well, from the photos you have posted, it looks great! Someday, I hope to be able to have my car repainted back to it's original color black. Until then, I can only dream. Right now, I'd say my car is a 40 footer.:D

My latest find, that's not me in the pics by the way.

The rust is surface only, it does run and drive and all parts are with the car. Will keep me busy for a while.

Technically, the car won't be mine until Friday, but here is a shot of 'Mildred', my 1937 Pontiac 6 Touring Sedan. The car is in excellent condition, and drives great. The interior has been done in period-correct style and fabric, and the paint is one of the available 1937 colors. She has been an AACA Driver Participation car with the current owners, but I think she can do well in class juding with a bit more work. However, the important thing is she will be a wonderful tour car - I don't own a trailer. It will be great to have a Pre-War car again!

Here's my new project, 1951 Chieftain 2-door. I plan to make this my daily driver, mechanically sound and safe for my family. Cosmetically I'm planning to rehab the interior and leave the outside as-is. Brakes, motor, body are generally OK. Hydramatic shifts through the first three gears OK, though it makes a lot more interesting noises than I think it probably should. I haven't driven it fast. Carb needs a rebuild. I'm working on some vapor lock or fuel supply issue(s) at the moment. Interior is pretty thrashed.
