Willys Coupe

Hey gang,

I've been away for quite some time. I poke my head in once in a while, but but don't normally post. I've been a little busy the past few months with the new business and all. Thought I'd post some pics of the '40 Willys Coupe we've just finished so y'all wouldn't think I just ran away! If you check through the archives, ya might find some posts featuring this car in a bit rustier condition. For now, it's clear coated bare metal.

My 13 year old did the bulk of the work on those rear fenders. They're scratch built.

Absolutly mind blowing Randy, beautiful. But honestly, I "feel" good about your boy (I assume it is your son) working along with his dad. That is just too cool, that time is more important than all the cars in the world. Good for you and your son, I know he couldn't possibly understand what a lucky kid he is, but one day he will.

Randy,
What a masterpiece!

Your 12 year old son will have one hell of a resume when he is 18!

Randy, Your work is unreal!!!! Even your Son's skill level looks to be miles ahead of my own. Thanks for sharing your project examples here, it shows what can be accomplished and I think pushes most of us to increase our own quality level. Nice work Bob

Hi Guys,

Thanks!!

Yep, it's a lot of fun watching Ryan learn the craft. He's more interested in baseball right now than he is cars, (or anything else for that matter) but so was I at his age. He's doing a great job though and it allows us to spend more time together. Too many young men don't have the opportunity to bond with their father.

Randy

Great work as alway's Randy.

Would you consider "adopting" a 48 year old?

Man, I wish we were neighbors. Everybody around me know's engines but metalsmith's are far and few between.

Hi Randy,

The willy's looks great. A fantastic change from what it looked like a year ago.
