Very Cool photo there Hurst1...I saved and posted this over on the Christine Car Club. There's a lady over there named Christine (ironic huh?) that has just finished restoring a 58 Plymouth (Christine) pedal car....She will get a real kick out of this! Thanks...

Hi Guys, As I mentioned earlier, Christine from Michigan who is a member of the CCC  (Christine Car Club) restored this little 58 Plymouth pedal car below. I posted all the photos of them over there at the CCC. She said she'd love it if I shared her pride and joy with you guys. She has a whole case full of Christine items in addition to the pedal car. This is what she wrote: Notice how she refers to the pedal car as "He". Opposite of what we refer to our cars as "She".
 
Bob, those little cars are beautiful, and I'd love it if you posted my car over there. Be sure and tell them He does stuff by remote. Motor sound, lights, music and talks....... all at high volume. I'm stile a little over whelmed by all the attention Jrs been getting. Thanks for adding to my fun. Christine

mmmmmm, lookey here!  The 5th jacket I have seen!  Wonder where she got it?
 
2 were on ebay, a # of years ago, one sold for $700 and something , the other jacket bidded up to $600 and something, but, didn't meet reserve.
 
'Bout the time Fearless Leader switched over to his new site, the 3rd jacket popped up on ebay, and I was able to get the winning bid.
Which Billy Gibson bought out my huge "Christine" collection, and he now has the jacket.
 
Martin has the 4th jacket,,,,,,,.
 
Hey Billy!  Lookey here at this display!  Something for you to get an idea.

Here's a few new photos guys. Edwin told me that the welding is only a few weeks away from being complete...then off she goes to the body shop. The frame is to be painted this week as well.
 

 
Looks like 10 tons of work! These photos bring back memories of when I worked in the body shop...when I was in my teens and early twenties. Those sparks flying also bring back memories of when I got metal in my eyes and had to go to the eye doctor to get them removed...every blink was another scratch on my eyeball...because the metal rusted/attached itself to my eyelid...Man that was painful! Nope...Don't miss this work at all. Makes me grateful to be able to afford to pay someone else to build me the car of my dreams...Thanks Edwin...Thanks MLC

Now me, I like the body work part, even better than mechanical--- it's
like bringing a car back from the dead... seems like most cars go to
the graveyard because of terminal rust.

Looks like they're doing a "bang up" job on her (Christine no doubt) Bob!



My DeSi is going to get dogleg and quarter metal patches fabricated in
the next few weeks by a guy who worked in the body shop at Miller Dodge
here for 35 yrs... when I get it back I'll do all of the fairing-in and
finishing work in lead, just like back in the old days.  The best
body work book I've seen is "The Key to Metal Bumping", a trade book
published by Fairmont Tool and Forging in 1953.

You're going to find the lead is not what it was today.  Lead content is way down. . .You know EPA rules
 
USC All Metal is a gread substitute for that and finishes to a finer finish.
 
I found out the hard way on Polaraco about the leading.

My source of lead is my Great Uncle Clyde in Vermont's big box of lead
ingot bars from the olden days... I have a plaque from Texaco that they
gave him after 25 years as a Texaco dealer... in 1948!  He had a
garage in S. Woodstock that specialized in Model A Fords. We got lots
of old Ford tools and signs and other good stuff when he retired around
1981. That lead is probably 70 yrs old!... almost as old as you Steve!

"TRIPLE DAMAGES"
