1939 in a Nebraska winter!!

Recommended Posts

We don't get much snow here in Central Texas. However, we picked up our 1941 Continental in Newton, Iowa in March, 2007 and trailered it to Minnesota to visit the grandkids. Definitly NOT my kind of weather, but we DID get the car out of the trailer for a BRIEF photo opportunity at about 20 degrees!

No snow here in Indiana and making great headway on my 38 L/Z coupe. Where can I find exploded pictures of the engine compartment so I know how, where the wiring harnesses should be. Planning on bringing it out to the April meet in April. First time this has been out since my father purchased it in 1976. Still trying to figure out paperwork since he never completed it. Hope you are staying warm and healthy.

OK, OK If you insist. I just took her out of the field and here she is, all spiffied up for her debut in the cold of Jan under the Texas sun. Not that she hasn't spent most of her life under the sun. Many January's under the Texas sun, I'd say about 50 give or take a few. Now she can rest. Or its that rust?

Here in oHIo, winters are long with few bright spots, and to add insult, they

dump enough corosive Halite, that any potmetal grows fuzz ..nasty stuff..but after a good rain, away we go.... hot water heater blower needs a higher speed..but i can crack the cowl vent and the ram air effect into the heater helps a little

love the pics guys, sadly living in so-cal the only way you'd be able to tell the difference between the winter and summer pictures of my lincoln would be if I photographed the temperature gauge.. (and now after having skip rebuild my water pumps I doubt I'd even be able to tell the difference then)

No snow here (but lots of green rolling hills from all the rain) in my part of Northern California (Marin County about 25 minutes North of San Francisco). I took my '39 LZ Sedan for a test drive. It was sunny and a balmy 72 degrees and the LZ ran perfect.

I must say a 1939 LZ black sedan driving on a road with snow in the background is a gorgeous sight. Quite an amazing contract against the white background. Wednesday is supposed to be the warmest and sunniest day of the week. I'll post some photos if I get the chance.
