  1. Shawnigan Lake Heritage Days

    Sorry Bill, I looked though my photos for that day and it looks like I didn't take any of my 40. You'll have to settle for this picture take last weekend at the Ladysmith car show. My oldest decided to keep her ole dad company on Saturday. We had one heck of a good time checking out the cars, having lunch and doing the poker walk at the local shops but our Ace/King/Queen high flush wasn't enough to win.
  2. Shawnigan Lake Heritage Days

    You're welcome. Little more info on the cars. The Dodge towing the Boler is a right-hand drive from new Zealand. I think I was told that the 1927 Essex was all original and unrestored. The black '35 Plymouth is one of dpollo's as is the two-toned '40.
  3. Shawnigan Lake Heritage Days

    Hit the limit so here's a few more.
  4. Shawnigan Lake Heritage Days

    Thought everyone might enjoy a few pictures from the weekend. Every year residents of shawingan lake celebrate the area's heritage and as part of the goings-on there is a car show organised by Dpollo on this forum. The weather was perfect and it was a nice group of cars, a very enjoyable day. I'm sure it wasn't intentional but flathead engines seemed to be the order of the day.
  5. Easiest Way To Cut Welding Cable

    On the farm we always used a block of wood and a sharp axe. Nice clean cut and even the right lenghts if your hand/eye coordination was any good.
  6. I normally don't like 39-47 Dodge pu's,but.........

    Yup, I don't mind that at all!
  7. 1940 Mopar Month

    Thanks for checking into that Andyd. I was hoping for a cool werid production story but I guess but as usual the simplest solution wins. Lol
  8. 1940 Mopar Month

    Being the owner of a 1940 Plymouth 2 door sedan and having block sanded that body multiple times I consider myself quite familiar with the details of the body. Can someone tell me where the stamped lines on the fenders went on this fairly stock looking black 40 for sale on eBay?
  9. Drop a 41 Dodge with uprigths

    I've been wondering about dropped uprights. Can you use 15" wheels with Fatman dropped uprights and still maintain your scrub line?
  10. Creative dash boards

    We have in our Boneyard a 61 Buick that has a backwards printed speedometer. You look at it's reflection in a mirrior that is adjustable to suit different height drivers.
  11. Creative dash boards

    Yeah, it's on the wrong side of the car! Seriously though I always loved the marble/mother of pearl look on a steering wheel.
  12. Creative dash boards

    This is I think where my love of old vehicles started. My dad had one very similar to this and my earliest memories are riding/sleeping on the seat while he worked.
  13. Creative dash boards

    Here's the dash out of my 40 Plymouth. The original gauges were in really bad shape and I was missing the center section so I decided to customize. I used the gauges out of a 48 ford and made the glove box door to match the shape, Speaking of which, anybody know what year glove box push button latch will interchange with the 1940, as you can see I'm needing one.
  14. Back Again!

    I like your plans. Definitely going to be a shock to some when you open the hood! I'll keep watching.
  15. Jakub, your english is good. That is a very interesting story. Thank you for posting.
