My Father-in-Law found this all busted up in a shoe box at the condo's he maintains.

I painted it in the bathroom while the wife was out. Almost got away with it!!! :rolleyes:

Nice save on that, Johnny. I like brass-era cars and I enjoy runabouts in particular.

It being winter the rush of hot air out the window should have covered you .. :(

Looks great. Nice save. I take it that last photo being blurry is when she smacked you upside the head?

Later-

Thanks guys!

I love redoing old models I think more than building new ones!

Sorry about the blur, especially the last picture.

But I have bouts of slight tremors in my left had now.

Going to invest in a tripod. :)
