So it's got a coupla bullet holes, big deal...
Here's the body. We bought it for a song after it'd been sitting out in a field for forever and a day. At one point, a tree fell on it, hence the bent-up roof. We'll replace all the wood and put in a new top, no worries. It's got at least 5 bullet holes, and those'll stay. You're looking at the paint, minus some touch-ups we'll undoubtedly apply post-minor body work, and the number that'll ride on the door. The chassis and motor will be painted to offset things, and you'll see the motor, as we'll be running it without fenders, running boards, or hood sides.
The other car is our 1937 Ford Coupe, which we've had since I was about 8. It's running now, but needs tires. We've got a restored 1934 Sedan and a 1951 Ford F1, too, which is a semi-daily driver for me. I'm sure you'll see some pics on this site as we go.
