Another great video on Pinstriping.

I have always been fascinated with the talent these guys have.

Amazing!

Check it out!

Pinstriping w/ Dave

I found this on Youtube.com.

Dave...not sure who he is, but his technique and "eye" is pretty good.

I have alot of respect for those who can make a cool piece of "art" with a bunch of squiggly lines.

Looks easy eh?

Now go try it!

Another Great Build







Another great build. It cant get any better than this.

The current owner, in London, UK, has perfectly captured the 'Old Past' Traditional flavor that started the hobby we love so much. The stance, wheels, color and headlight position give the car a "self starting, lets meet the rubber to the road" attitude.

Under the name '4ever4' on the Jalopy Journal, He shows that early Fords dont have to be ground scraping, body channeled rides to look better than the rest.

A brief of what I can see: Stock suspension, uncut bones, Juice brakes, built 4-banger motor with dual 97's on top of a 'Burns' intake, Windfield head, Mag Distributor and stock tranny.

Buddy, you did it. Congratulations!

Perfect!

Model T Build


Its really great to see people are jumping on the bandwagon of the early vintage iron.

Believe me, It doesnt take much to build a chopped, channeled, modified coupe, roadster or RPU. Taking an almost 100 year old body, patching it up back to stock, takes alot of patience, searching and determination.

The vision is clear, Early 40's style Hot Rod, utilizing early 4 banger technology, down draft carburator (97), Magneto, V8 Water pump conversion and the ever so loved Winfield head.

Im in love.


Im hoping to get more info on this ride to make a full feature of its build. Keep an eye out on VM for more updates.

Post a comment here to push the builder along...

Enjoy

28-29 Sports Coupe Project

I finally got rid of my "roach" 56 Mercury (a deal gone bad), and made room for my 28-29 Sports coupe that will be turned into a Cabriolet. I have been waiting on getting my chassis over from a buddies house and friday, at my suprise, it rolled up on a trailer and got dropped off.I felt like a kid in a candy store. I have had the body for some time but had been gathering parts to start this build on the right foot. With the Shoebox welded up solid, running good, nothing much is left but body work and glass. I thought I would break up the minotny of the same routine in the garage with something new, so here she is.

Not much to tell, she will be as traditional as I can keep it (except the magnum or superbell dropped axle ). It will have a small kick up on the frame in the rear (Tardell Style) powered by a Banger motor, dual 97's, 39 trans, Stock rear and 16" wires, 7.00 rear tires, 5.00 motorcyle fronts. The windshield is basically like you see it (maybe an inch higher).I have a buddy helping me out, got the subframe and cowl sand blasted.So much is in the planning stages that I want to do, but Illl keep them details to myself, until I can develp pictures after the work is completed.

Ill post picts of the progress as I go along.
