 Terminix is your go to guy when you own one of these beauties.  Imagine getting a termite inspection as part of the CarFax report!

Actually with the post hole beetles I see in some of the woodies I have seen,  might not be a bad idea on those.

   It looks to me it may part of good memories for 2 or 3 generations people, who, as kids remember summers and 4th of July parades, family reunions at the park, rides to the lake for swimming and picnics.  Just guessing, but I think this car was made for the enjoyment of others as well as the builder. It looks fairly well made too.  Jim 43

Wooden cars and Kentucky remind me of that documentary about that North Carolina moonshiner made several years ago. I believe the old moonshiner's name was Popeye something, and he was a real character. He had a couple of Model A's, and I'm pretty sure one of them had a wood body. Fascinating (though somewhat depressing) film, if you haven't seen it. On youtube. I believe the guy passed away several years ago.
