Default YEAH!!!!

I've been waiting for this since you teased it in the last build. ( I saw the Caddy for sale on a site out of TX for 150k ) I tell you that hoping it makes you proud, not angry... Ready for class to begin.

Heh, heh, I looked up the Caddy - when you mentioned Texas and 150K, I thought maybe gA$$ Monkey was selling it Oh well, at least it gets around, apparently increasing in value as it ages...

Made the 5 hr. trip to get some more pics of the 37 coupe body - in the past couple years since I last saw it, its developed some surface rust from living in a damp climate in an old greenhouse. In the background, you can see body #2 - guess I'm going to be knee deep in Packards for some time....
Got some measurements so I can get my dolly ready to mount the body on when it gets here next month.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Yeah, I've noticed too that seems to be that 1937 had some designers that knew fine lines well....in any given year, you don't see as many really nicely shaped cars as 1937 and from many different makers! Maybe just my opinion, but it is what it is...

Oh, I totally agree, the combination of art deco style and streamlining plus aircraft design had a real influence on auto design . Some my fav cars are mid to late 30s.

Default If your taking a poll

I see the conversation turning to the great styling of these cars, so I thought I would chime in here. I saw earlier that you were talking of going the gasser route. While I do think these are cool. I vote that you "do your thing" on it and make it a chopped sectioned pavement scraper. Not only does this let you exercise your creative vision (which rocks!!), it also inspires us less talented. If really need to build a gasser, I'll still watch the magic. I just hate to see it done to a car with that much class. P.S. ( I have a 36 chevy coupe for a gasser if you really need to scratch that itch)
