Dave, I assumed Raised due to the fact he called it a street machine, but it can go either way.

Nick: Great build! It looks exactly like something Sammy Hagar would have.

Dave: Thanks for posting that link. Things like that add spice to CBPs like this. I'd never heard of that contest either, being on the wrong coast and all, but seeing the connection that Sammy Hagar felt (and clearly still feels) to the car hobby is cool indeed. The local Classic Rock station here in the Philly area, 102.9 WMGK, had a giveaway promotion about a decade back, with the grand prize being a fully restored 1977-ish Trans Am.

Now I'm getting started with the '32 Ford. I must strip the paint off from the body, but I haven't got time to get new bottle of it. On Saturday I'm going to pick new one, and start stripping the paint. But I hope I can start working with the engine already, so there might be an update coming soon.

Is it too late for jumping in ?

I'm a big Boss fan, so what about the 32 Ford from RamRod ?

'She's a hot stepping Hemi with a for on the floor
She's a RoadRunner engine in a 32 Ford'

I've got a 32 High Boy, just gotta find a Hemi.

A classic from Bruce! This should definitely be a good one! (I'm listening to "I'm On Fire" on Pandora as I type this... B) )

I'll be starting it on Dec 1st, for a model comp here in the UK Jim

Also thinking about the 64 Galaxie cop car & 55 (?) Buick from Highway Patrolman. :)
Always thought they were late 60's cars listening to the track, then saw the video.

What appears in the video doesn't matter. This CBP is about the way YOU see the car in your mind's eye when you hear the song. For instance, check out Jantrix's fine "Flatbed Ford" ("Take It Easy", by The Eagles). He built a chopped '34 parts store delivery truck while I had always envisioned it as a faded white late-60's F-200 with minor body damage and maybe a hay bale on the flatbed. Two entirely different concepts, and they're both right. It all comes down to the builder's imagination.

The '65 Corvair I was (re)building for the "Glue Bomb" CBP is now finished and so the "Little Old Lady's" '64 Dodge 330 is back on the table. I shot the paint a couple of weeks ago and polished it out this evening. The interior has been done for a while now, so it's time to get cracking on the chassis and drivetrain. It's been about 5 years since I've done a Mopar, so I hope I remember the details...

I've been really busy now, but this weekend I might have time for that '32 Ford, maybe Mercury too. I will post pics from the starting point of that Hot Rod today, stay tuned.

Finally I have some pictures of my '32 Ford Project. I have glue bomb with all of the parts, they just need to be stripped off from the paint. Body is painted white, and I've been thinking about flake blue paintjob. I've painted the engine once, it needs still at least one more coat of paint. I have also assembled the wheels and tires from Revell '29 Ford Pickup. I'll use those hubcaps too.

So many CBP's, so little time to build for them! My "Little Old Lady" Dodge is only halfway there, but I've managed to get myself involved in several other builds along the way too! Don't forget about this one, folks! ;)
