Here are a few cars that caught my eye.. Will try to post most of them on Photo Gallery. The first two are of a Hand-made aluminum body on a handmade frame from Richmond Va, and the last one is of a 4 wheel drive model A or something. Love those huge wire wheels.

Looks like the body might have been a sedan once..

Jason is having a party and moved the junk pile... i mean my projects... The Frankenwagen is re-timed, the 35 is in its new home, and the Falcon is still slumbering.. Supposed to have a new motor for it, re-bored and machined, but disassembled...

Next week for that..

Closer look at the 35 shows that it is a little more rusted than i thought, still way better than the 47 Ford, but that some kind soul got the door hinge pins out, so i can remove the doors to work on them. The frame is bogus, but i counted on that.. I guess i will get a credit card frame, next year when i am ready for this mess.

Finished the frame grinding today, and started on the right side lower hinge. Body has to be 1 3/4 " wider at the bottom where i channeled it..

So i welded a piece of 1" square tubing in back of the hinge and welded the stump of the hinge to the tubing.. I was going to lift the body more, and weld the back when i ran out of MIG wire.

I know this is bull gravy, but i would rather have a weak door hinge than a weak frame.. I might have to notch the back of the frame to let the cab go back as far as i want it, but i don't want to mess with it.. Even if it is fully boxed and gusseted, i donwanna.

Good thing this truck was ruin't when they parked is in 1967, i kinda hate doing this to this old POS.

Supposed to get the 35 tomorrow, so i better make all my mistakes on this one.

Got it all done but one stub, the body has to be moved.. Finally figured out that if i used the edge of the wheel to cut away everything but the weld, it would go faster... Now it's time to get the body down on the frame.
