In Topic: What was your 1st 1 to car

22 April 2015 - 06:09 PM

My first car was after highschool. Had a motorcycle earlier. Hard to take girls on dates in the rain and winter months. Back to the car. It was a 61 austin healy "bugeye" sprite. Had plexiglass slide open removable side windows. Wasn't much better that cycle in the winter(at least the cycle would start). Got to know all the city bus drivers by there first names during the winter. But when it ran my dates did stay dry (and somewhat warm). After two winters I traded for a Simca 1000. It had real rollup windows and a heater that worked all the time. Met my wife with it. Richard

In Topic: What is the longest you have taken on a build?

Lets see ... there's a '49 Ford that's chopped, channeled and sectioned and has extensive custom bodywork .. I started it in 1963 and it's still on the bench, but I don't know where ...

That is truly amazing. I have a 49 merc I started on in 1963 (duel headlights, painted whitewall slicks, etc.) that will probably NEVER be finished. I did things on it back then that to this day I have no idea how I did. I look at at it every now and then and  put the parts back in the well worn box. It is now almost a shrine . Richard

All of those rereleases and not one of them had " the first kit " fenderskirts in them as far as I know. Bummer! Richard

I own a 1988 plymouth horizon with the 2.2 and my engine is oil with a little black paint. Hope this helps. Richard
