Sedan/delivery off to Dan TwoLakes for magic.

We loaded up the sedan/delivery this morning and took it down to Dan's shop for him to work his special magic on the interior. The first shot is just the car on the trailer getting ready to go. The second shot is in Dan's shop with Dan hisself checking out the removable tonneau cover and going over the rest of the car for last minute decisions on what we want to do.

On the right is my wife, Dorothy, giving Dan the old stink eye every time he gets within 20 feet of the paint.

Man o Man, Dewey, sharp! There sure aren't any around like it. I've sent emails to a few of the magazines directing them to your journal, two have said they won't do something in the mag that has been on the net already. I'm still working at it.

Wow. Thanks for making that effort Dan. Strange response from the mags (to not cover cars that have been seen on the web). But thanks for the effort nonetheless.

The pictures don't do it justice, the workmanship and paint are gorgeous. I was just looking to see if we had enough room to install that refrigerator over on the left. ( BTW, c-boy must have come with with one hell of a dowry for Dorothy to have been interested in him.)

One step closer. Think you should be real proud of yourself dewey.
Man, as much as I hate to complain about WI taxes and winter, dang some of the state is beautiful. What a backdrop. Got to love the northwoods, at least till the skeeters take over.

The magazines should be fighting to cover that car, that was handbuilt by the owner, not built with a checkbook, and to visit that area. Sunny california has nothing on Wisconsins northwoods in the summer.

Looking very "tasty" Dewey! Of course, it seems like just yesterday that you were trying your best to look like me. Back in the days when your hair was getting thin (remember what I told you about ripping it out.....) and the sedan looked like this......







In a while, Chet.



BTW, Troy, who needs those "Californy magazine guys" drinkin' our beverages when they can't seem to appreciate fine art like that?

It ain't over yet with the magazine guys, I have a plan I'll have to get my wife to help me with. Street Rodder answered me, I believe Street Rod builder was the other, I think he was under the impression that i wanted them to use Deweys journal for the write-up. I am going to compile an email address list of the mags, send them all an email, attach a few pics, maybe I can get them into a hurry up mode to be the first. it may take Dewey entering a big car show to get attention, I just don't know what it takes to get their attention. I had also tried to get Deweys homebuild budget rod a write up, failed miserably.

Unfortunately Wisconsin just lost its two big shows, an NSRA show that used to be at the Milwaukee Mile (state fair grounds & race track) and the Goodguys show. Both of these have folded their tents and gone home. So now the closest NSRA and Goodguys shows are in Illinois, Iowa and Michigan. Certainly doable...just a lot more travel cost. There's also "Back to the 50's in Minneapolis/St.Paul" which I attend every year, but there are sooooooooo many great and unique cars there (normal attendance is over 11,000 hot rods now) that my efforts pale in a sea of unbelievably great cars. But I do think you are correct that larger car shows are one way the magazines "discover" the hot rods they feature.

While it would be an honor to get some recognition for the car (and for Hotrodders.Com) by one of the national mags, that was never the purpose for building it and my fun level is just the same whether there are glossy photos or not. And while I'm considering trailering this one for the first year to save the paint on the chassis and underside, it was built to be a driver and built to be a fun ride and built so show once again that you don't need a fortune to build yourself a decent hot rod.

And in terms of "getting seen", I just checked and between my two journals, the roadster and the sedan/delivery builds are now closing in on 400,000 views (388,000 to be more exact). That's a lot of looks for a couple of low-budget shadetree specials coming out of some remote spot in northern Wisconsin and built by an old duffer using trailer hitches and PVC pipe to shape his metal. When I started the roadster a little over four years ago I would have never in a million years dreamed of having a thousand people interested enough to look at my work, much less hundreds of thousands. So for my money, I'm already having my 15 minutes of fame...right here on HR.Com...the best hot rod site on the internet.

But thanks again to Hot Rod Kid and Dinger for their stealth campaign to widen that audience even further. I'm honored just to know you think the car is worthy of that sort of coverage.

Or rewind a bit further to when it looked like THIS. Just a couple of bent tubes clamped to the frame rails with a donated seat from 454 Rattler. Ah, there were a lot of "vroooom, vroooom" days back then.
