    I wish I could get it done that quick. Probably more like summer 2010, realistically. But that's OK. I'll just keep pluggin away at it.

    That's the fun part, taking your time and building it yourself and with your friends. Even if it takes a while, that's alright. I'm not knocking the guys who do it, but I don't think I could be one to hand it over to a professional shop and pay them build it. One, I could never afford it and two, I dont think you could get the same pride as when you do it yourself; even if it's not as perfect.

    Most of the speed builds i think end up sold off right away . When we do it our self's we have a drive to keep it awhile when its done . I know this next one is my last one i am going down to 2 cars but i really would like to have a 33 or 34 someday . The wheeling and dealing is coming to a end hhmmm .

    Who are you kidding, Bobby? You'll be doing it until you're dead; same as the rest of us. I hope you get your 33, though. I'm already planning my next project, too.

    I gotta tell you, building that truck was a blast. I'm thinking along those lines but more refined. Something with a "T" or "A" based chassis with a slightly dropped front axle, some type of open roadster body. Real utilitarian with no chrome or new speed parts. I just happen to have another flathead six sitting here along with some kingpin spindles, a good steering box, an S-10 five speed...............Don't get me sidetracked, I gotta finish this one f1rst.

    Falcon hhmm looks like you will have a big big shop soon . I see these are easy to get a start and move on maybe something i look into also . Once my life is back together if it ever is retirement and building could be in the future too .

    But first stay on the coupe ideas are always of interest to me when someone is doing a car . Also gives me more get up and watch .

    Oh Sunday should be a new pic up there on the left >

    All I have to say is that Falconvan has motivated me by this build thread to get off my butt and get started on my 46 Chrysler. I have no money to put into it right now at all but I am going to work with what I have now and get moving on it.

    If you wan't something done right, then you have to do it yourself!

    I wish I had the bux and the time to do more but this darn full time job keeps getting in the way. I always wished I could run my own shop for a regular job but I think there's just too much capital investment needed to make a solid living. More than I've got, anyway. I'm not sure I'd enjoy it as much if I was building for other people, trying to keep deadlines, etc. Only 24 years till retirement, though. I'm pretty determined to keep on this one till the finish line. Speaking of your avatar pic, how's that one coming along?

    That's a sweet looking Chrysler, Shawn. It'll be a great cruizer when you get it done. Just make a list of all the low money/no money things you have to do to it and concentrate on those first. It'll keep you interested if you feel like you're making progress. I'm going to try and spend the winter on bodywork and get a little cash built up for some of the big ticket items.

    Came home needed to bled the brakes out pedal was a little low and spongy , felt it more with the trailer on . Packed up the necessary tools and jack for the trip along with extra straps . Maps and directions in the tote bag should be ready for 6 am .
