10-20-2011 08:58 PM 1940 toy wagon
Restored this 1940 grayhound wagon, made by Hamilton toy company. My wife has a photo of her when she was 3 years old sitting in this wagon. So i made a coffee table out of the wagon, but it can still be used as a wagon. I hand painted all the letters, and the dog. I cant see very good but she likes what i did with it.

05-11-2011 10:34 AM grill damage
My hood release cable came loose, and i had to pry open my hood. Did some bad damage to the grill and the hood. I found a top grill section i needed on ebay, but it cost me $400.00, but i could not find one so i had to buy it. I cut a hole in the plate that holds the cable end, so if it ever comes loose again i can get my hood open without any damage. Costly mistake on my part.

Well i am very happy now. We took the 48 out for a test drive now that i have my speedometer working again, and i got 30 miles to the gallon. Its a good thing i put in the five speed transmission, not bad for such a big old car running a 250 six cyl. drove a bit over 150 miles and used 5 gals of gas. Ran great at 70 on the interstate.

12-30-2010 01:24 PM test drive
Well my brother and i rook the 48 out for a test drive to see how the new 5 speed was going to work. It worked great, we must of had it up to 80mph and the engine was not even working hard. Got my console all built and the stereo put back in, installed new indicator lights for the turn signals on the console, and all works great. Now i have to buy the adapter to hook up my speedometer to my trans, but will have to wait till spring for that. All in all im very happy now.
