Rough stuff.

The late 40's / early 50's panel delivery wasn't too bad. Except for the Pontiac Eight driver's door. It almost fit. A good bodyman (not me) could massage it to fit correctly. $6500

I assume the next one was a 30's Ford. It was originally a 4 door. The back doors had been welded shut, I assume when the top was chopped. I struck up a conversation with another observer. We agreed the proportions of the back side glass to door glass was way off. But if the back openings were filled, it might make a decent looking sedan delivery. But the amount of work required to clean up the bad welding would be unbelievable. $850

The Ranchero is my best of the worst. The quarters are shot. It has the straight 6 in it. $4500 OBO.

Time for my annual photos of the Chickasha Fall Swap Meet.

The first photo here is what I bought. And probably why my wife dreads my going to swap meets. The seat bottom will be a frame and spring donor for my back seat. The yard cart is for the lawn tractor to make those landscaping chores easier on my wife.

I broke out laughing when I saw the second photo. Had to add it to this year's photos.

My brother-in-law is into bikes. I called him about this one. He said $35 - $50. Bike was marked $275. I didn't even try.

I always find a hard to find intake system when I go to Chickasha. How about a Chrysler long ram intake? $1400. I have the phone number if you want it.

Started working out some of the dents last night. I am getting better at it, but it will still require filler. Have to work some of the high spots down before I am done with the driver's side. Then on to the passenger's side.

The car will be in the garage all winter. The house will not. If one gets painted before winter, it has to be the house. Been working on the siding.

I did start on the hood. Whatever the paint is, it is tough as nails to get off. On the flip side, it allows rust. What a combo. If it wasn't for dents and high spots, there wouldn't be much of a hood.

I spent most of the day aligning the front fenders and grill header. Once I was satisfied it was close enough, I drilled the holes for the bracket bolts. Both sides have the bracket work completed.
