Your own project/driver/show car.

I would be surprised, if there wouldn't been any topic like this before. I haven't seen one yet, so I hope to see interesting cars!

Here are mine:

1939 Hudson (92 Pacemaker maybe?)

My 1964 Imperial LeBaron.. seller said it has only 24k miles on it.. ? Still in LA waiting to get home to Finland...

Here is my next project. It is a 64 Plymouth Sport Fury. Had one like it in my mis-spent youth. This one has a 361, auto, bucket seat interior, and needs a hell of a lot of metal work. Guess I'll be learning how to weld on this one. wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Looks nice. Do you have a photo of your '64 Imperial?

This is my previous Crown:

I would like to include photos in the body of my posts, just as Mika has done.

Some stories read much better if there is more than one photo, and if the author can comment on said photos while they are on screen.

How can I do this?

You have to post your photo to some web server like I did:

http://www.dc.turkuamk.fi/users/mjaakkol/images/1964/uudet_kuvat/400_vasenkylki.jpg

You just have to know the url of the pic (like that one above)

Then when you write a message, you can choose "image" from "Instant UBB Code" under the message-writing-box. Just write the URL(link) of the image there. abd OK.

1950_chrysler_royal_woodie_wagon_07.jpg

This is the image from the main page of www.aaca.org . You can see the URL when you press right button over the image and choose "Properties"

Hope this helps-

Here are my two. The 70 Electra was my 2nd car that I've owned since high school. The Cadillac is just finished with an engine overhaul/rebuild, transmission rebuild, new power steering pump, new fuel pump, overhauled oil pump, overhauled carburetor, and replaced starter.

Hi! Mika some nice projects you got there, I see you are in the good old Suomi Finland. I'm from Norway, but I now live in the US.

Here is my 1957 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday w. a 371 V8 and a 4-barrel carb. 62k org. miles......just traded it for a Glock 22 and $600.00 cool.gif very solid car with hardly any rust at all......just got her running too....didn't smoke which stunned me.

Nice Olds, Ronny! Yep, Suomi, Finland! I guess you made it to the better side of the Earth (what comes to old car hobby!!). I guess that was a good deal!

Nice cars you all have, but I guess there's more members also in AACA. It would be nice to see M O R E cars! Where's all those guys who own '10's ,'20's and 30's cars?

Thanks!

We have a 1939 Dodge four door project car also. Not many of them around. After pricing just the woodgraining, we decided to modify it a little and just enjoy it. Our 1963 1/2 Falcon Sprint convertible is going to be the AACA showcar someday. Hopefully soon.

Know anyone that wants a chassis for a 39 Dodge? We have a spare one in very good shape. smile.gif

That worked real good, I was able to post the pictures here so you don't need to dowload them to see them.
