Speaking of bells - I must be a real ding-a-ling for forgetting - somewhere I have one of those old service station bell things that does the "ding-ding" when you drive over the hose. I just have to find it and then get a length of the hose needed to make it all work.

That would be cool in the driveway. I didn't mention why I wanted to put it in the Rambler. The thing is so quiet when I am driving near people they don't hear it, I hate to honk the horn so this will be perfect.

Back in '69, a friend of a friend had a '67 Chev pickup with a 6 cyl. and bad front shocks. About the third pump of the gas, would bring the front wheels at least 6 inches off of the ground. I know, because I witnessed it first hand

. A set of 90/10 front shocks in that Falcon should bring those front wheels right up.

And then a fuel primer bulb, like you would use for a boat motor ought to make it work.

That would be pretty cool Brian! Haven't had a car that could hook and pull the front wheels since my '55 Chevy gasser back in 1970!

I have never had a car that would even come close, not even anywhere near a dream of it even.

By the way I was thinking about my Bermuda bell and it hit me that it doesn't go "ding-dong" it goes "ding-ding". Every time you hit the button an electro magnet slides a rod into the bell. So each time you hit the button you get a "ding-ding" because the rod hits and coming back it returns because it has a spring that the magnet overcomes and goes back thru the electro magnet hitting the bell with the other end of the rod.
In the great world of wheelie pulling cars and such I thought this needed to be cleared up.

Lately I've been working on sheetmetal for a couple long running upscale builds... a '34 Chevy Delivery... and a '40 Ford pickup.

At this point it is bodywork and primer. There are lots of repairs and modifications... so most parts are getting 90% skim coated and blocked.

Once the cars are assembled and everything is satisfactory, they will be torn down for paint and graphics.
