Looks like a solid truck now. Can’t go wrong hauling to KCW if you have the $’s
Worst case scenario do what your skill set allows and spray bomb it and enjoy. If you are going to actually use it and put it to work you’re sure to scrape the paint and add more dents. So do what you can and paint it.

Well crap. It’s been a long, hectic 5 months since I last posted on here. Shortly after I blew up my football up I got super busy at work for several months working crazy overtime. I did manage to sell off some toys ( model T roadster, Cushman scooters, the metropolitan, my enclosed trailer and the short bus from the build off). It freed up some money for cheaper toys and to pay off a few things.
So initially I wanted a fiberglass buggy to lower and mess with for fun. Sled offered me his very unusual fiberglass buggy body so I jumped on it. A friend of mine went with me to NE Washington state to pick up it up.
It is odd having a hinged hood and funky windshield. While I was out in the sticks I was scrolling thru Craigslist in the area and spotted a 1936 Chevy 2 ton dump truck for sale at a very reasonable price. So it couldn’t hurt to look right? It was love at first sight. 2 owner truck with just over 36000 original miles, original paint, runs and drives (original straight 6), 2 speed rear end and the PTO and dump bed work. Problem was we tried to load it on my trailer and it crushed it. So I had to pay the farmers friend to haul it 7.5 hours one way home for me. I paid nearly as much for the transport as I did the truck.
Only thing I have done was replace the fuel filter and lines, tune up, valve adjustment and changed the oil. The original exhaust had rusted off so I threw a Flowmaster on it for fun. It’s a blast. Top cruising speed is 50. I drive it all over the place.
Recently I can’t seem to shake the pre war car addiction. I sold my model T roadster as the doors were so small it was hard as hell for my fat ass to get into. So I bought a ’26 coupe for a good price as it has much larger doors.On the way home with it I stopped by a vintage car junkyard to see if they had a few things for my new toy. Unfortunately they didn’t but I made a deal on two car bodies I have been lusting after for 2 years. The owner finally sold them to me for a package deal so I brought home a 1920 Cadillac Phaeton Type 57 Body and a 1916 (one year only) Inter-State Roadster body. I have no idea what I will do with them but the Cadillac might make an unusual hot rod since all I have is the body. It did come with the doors but not much else.
The guy thought it was a 1919 so he painted that on it so he wouldn’t forget what it was. It’s actually a 1920.
That’s the latest with me. I am finally starting to work on my Empi Sportster and will hopeful keep this thread more active with updates on it’s build.VwfoolParticipantMay 25, 2018 at 2:53 pmPost count: 878VwfoolParticipantMay 5, 2018 at 9:56 amPost count: 878VwfoolParticipantApril 16, 2018 at 7:42 amPost count: 878VwfoolParticipantApril 16, 2018 at 7:39 amPost count: 878VwfoolParticipantMarch 31, 2018 at 7:37 amPost count: 878
