    Indian Plodge

    To be so rough to start with that car turned out really nice. I wonder where they sourced the chrome?

    1952 Dodge Coupe hot rod

    Sounds like an interesting project. I am a big fan of the Jeep straight 6 in all forms especially the 4.0 (242). I had one in an 88 Cherokee that had 365K on the clock and still felt really strong when I sold it. Sounds like a good plan keep us updated on the progress.

    every wonder where all the good old cars are?

    Their was a junkyard just a few miles from where I live now. An old man had owned it for as long as I remember. He always had the old stuff 30's to 60's a few early 70's. He always had the hard to find stuff, unusual and odd models. Back in about '71 the Chevy dealer sold out, changed hands, whatever. I remember people telling me he bought out the complete parts dept. I don't think this was the only time he did this or brand. At that time I didn't understand the value of NOS parts or genuine OEM. I loved to walk through his yard and just look at all the possible projects and possibilities. I never bought much from him because he was considerably higher than the other yards. He was a one stop shop though, he usually had what you might be looking for. He passed away about 10yrs ago. I remember hearing through the grapevine that his family was selling everything cheap and had brought a mobile crusher in. I hurried up there, I knew he had a 47 Plymouth 5 man coupe there and wanted to see about it. I got there and was really heart broken to see all the crushed cars stacked up. So many good parts mashed and ruined. I saw the 47 and was in time to save it. It was much rougher than I had remembered ( it's always this way, right?). I bought the car for $200 bucks, had $50 in a tow bill to get it home. This car had the rare factory turn signal indicator on the dash. I used some parts to help my 46 coupe project, sold and saved all I could. I hate seeing good parts and cars go to waste. I also hate seeing all the good parts sources disappear. I guess that's life though. I remember seeing a 59 Lincoln there, it appeared as if it was driven in. Me and a friend talked about what an expensive car it was when new and the miles of chrome on it. Only one I guess I've ever seen.

    Really cool clip, thanks for posting.
  7. Thanks for sharing. My dad was in the 7th infantry and my uncle was involved In the D-day landing at Omaha beech. I wished more people understood the meaning and importance of these memorials.

    New 1936 Chrysler

    I love the airflow, never seen a done car in person, just parts cars and projects. This would be a great car for Chrysler to bring back IF they would get it right. I will say they do a far better job than the others. The exception, I know Jeep is connected to Chrysler. The "Renegade", I'm into old Jeep CJ's and for them to take a name that really meant something and apply it to a minivan really got me.

    Work bench height

    My favorite is a 4000 lb hydraulic table that doubles as a motorcycle lift. It was an industrial lift table of some kind from my former employer. I added a hinged 6" wide piece channel that can be removed if I wanted. I love how I can adjust the height from something I can work with using an old chair or hit the foot pedal and raise it if I want to stand and work.

    Free Paint Booth`s

    I would have thought it would be ok to buy a used paint booth with no environmental consequences as long as it didn't come with a bunch of paint left over in cans and a drum of questionable stuff. As far as paint left overs our local landfill accepts leftover paints from your residence. It may be different coming from a business or large amounts. I think it's pretty smart to accept it and dispose of it properly otherwise it would prob be poured on the ground somewhere. Wouldn't all the paint in the booth, vents and ducts be dry and ok as long as you didn't try to remove the paint from it? There is a big up coming road project in my area. They are going to widen the road from Morristown to Bulls Gap from 2 lane to 4 lane. This will cause the relocation of several small business'. One of which is a body shop owned by a friend. We were talking about the situation and I said I would like to have his booth if it was just going to be destroyed. He said he wanted to relocate the booth to his home shop but the State considered it part of the building and it had to stay. What do you think will happen to the booth? Will it just be dozed over? Disassembled and sold at a Gov auction? Carefully disposed of per hazards mentioned above?

    Cell phones and driving

    Glad she's ok. I've always felt you learn more from mistakes than not making one at all . Sometimes mistakes like this you don't get a second chance on. I worry about this scenario often. My kids are 25, 21 and 13, You preach and preach and hope they hear it.

    I went to my son's house today, didn't have any luck finding that carboard tube. I'm sure it will turn up just really puzzling.
