    Tomorrow is supposed to be an unseasonably nice day in the NW and wouldn't you know the bike is in for recalls and some service. I guess it will be a good day for the "Redneck Sports Car" as my commuter

    It is a 42 Ford GPW I of course ruined it in the eyes of the purists by boxing the frame and putting in a small block Chevy but to each his own.

    Looks outstanding to this ol boy. Nothing wrong with having a few extra ponies either.

    Thank you. It was my Grandpas hunting rig for years and then he sold it to a friend of my Dads and years later Dad bought it but had too many projects so I bought it as a basket case and was able to finish it so Dad could see it before he passed. I also have my Uncles 68 mustang that he had for years, it needs work still but is a nice car. Gpa and my Uncle lived net door to each other their entire lives so these two cars were in garages next door to each other until the Jeep was sold and now they are back next to each other to stay. I do enjoy them.
