    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.

    I looked through my contacts, I was sure I had his email address there but cant find it. I know I have that tube somewhere. Its pretty important to me as it has a nice pair of stainless rocker trim for my car. It kinda bothers me that its not where I thought it was but I have been working on other projects and I'm sure its just misplaced.

    Having trouble finding the info you need. I had a long cardboard tube Mr. McConnell had sent me some trim in. I can't seem to find it. My car has been moved to my sons garage, it may be over there. I 'll see if I can get over there today and look.

    1949 Plymouth Super Deluxe 4dr Sedan Parts

    You would be surprised what people might want or need. I have a parts car in the field behind my house that has been a very valuable source of information for me and others when it come to reassembly and reference. If you sell the bumpers you should make sure they wind up back on a Plymouth. That's just me.
  15. I'm not really into gassers, someone might like this. I see the steering column is poking through the old master cyl access hole and the gas and brake pedal are about a foot ahead of the column. Be kinda weird to me but different strokes for different folks.

    Put My Dog Down Today...Been A Rough Day

    Keith that's a great pic of Abby on the bench. I laughed when I saw her in the Gap shirt. The reason I laughed we also have a boxer, ours was a rescue dog from the pound. When we first got her she had a very skittish nature, easily startled and has some weird ways about her. We've had her about a year and a half, it's gotten better but it's still noticeable. Anyway this past winter we kept her and our heeler in the laundry room when it was cold out. The heeler has a thick coat but the boxer not so much. My wife bought the boxer a sweater. When she put that sweater on that dog and set it outside I darn near peed my pants laughing. Ginger ( the dogs name, not my wife ) walked like she was really afraid to move, she stepped with her legs stiff and very far apart. She saw me laughing and looked so humiliated and disgusted. My wife feels bad goes and takes the sweater off Ginger. I got it on video but lost it when my last phone died. This was an Americas Funniest videos winner hands down!
  20. I don't think anyone can argue this. Saw this today. On vacation in Savannah this week. Kinda cropped the pics a bit much but had to reduce file size to post.

    The roomiest DeSoto ever built.

    It was relaxing to walk barefoot through the ebbing tide. My wife could easily live beech front, after a few days I've had enough. This week I have been able to catch up on some rest. I'll need it when I get back because I will again be behind on my yard work.

    The roomiest DeSoto ever built.

    We were on Tybee and my friend that's feeding our dogs while were gone has a 57 DeSoto, so dropped in and picked him up a shirt. We kinda looked about while in there. I didn't think it looked too bad but didn't see much. Were you not happy, if not ill make a note for the future. You see the ads and often the pic in the ad was taken when new. Lol Yea hate I missed ya. Coulda had a meal or beverage. Did pass what I thought was a 37 Chrysler while ago, not sure, didn't get a pic.
