Baby, it's cold outside!

Basically since the body made it back from Texas, there's been a slow in the whole process of moving forward. I could blame it on a few things: Jobs, Lack of money, Holidays, baby, the autorama display, personal promotional projects, and the list goes on. I think the major contributor is the lack of space to work on it. The speed barn is very small when it's all said and done and if I had a place to store the '49 Ford in the meanwhile, I probably could at least start mocking up part of it.

What I really need to get further along is are tires and much of the front end. I have an axle and a wishbone to split, but no spindles or brakes or backing plates. Those would help me much MUCH more. So, if you have a lead on anyone ditching a '37-'41 Ford front end, give me a holla!

In the meanwhile, bask in the joy of a '51 GMC chopped truck by fellow Detroit Road Devil Dave. It's in primer now, but I'm kinda fond of the banana cream color that it is! But don't get too attached to it, it will be flat black again soon.
