General BS and Laughs / This weather SUX!

That's OK, one of these years Phoenix is going to dry up and blow away... we can always put on warmer clothes, but ya can't live w/o h2O  ;-)

There's a great book called "Cadillac Desert" ... read it and weep!

There's electric baseboards and propane heat -  it's the cost of running them! And the propane one is unvented so makes a lot of condensation - bad for cars and tools. I just  don't go there if it's under freezing (32 Fahrenheit) and it hasn't been above freezing for weeks!  If it's above 32 I can run the propane for just an hour and then just run electric and it'll stay decently warm to work in.

 Hasn't been much moisture here either Scott... but what snow we have lingers forever it's so cold! Quite a few days when the HIGH was around 8 to 15.

 I think it may get up to 33-34 tomorrow though, so a small break.

Wow that Fury will be worth a few dinero when she's done... always loved that 60 dash... meet George Jetson! 

And it's got that way cool square wheel too!  There's a guy who restores these... for $1000!!

Do they have that rear 1/4 lower trim? That kind of stuff is unobtanium !

Very nice Chris... ya that guys panels are crap, I bought stuff from him for my '58 but they would have needed so much work decided not to use them. Then, not having your body skills I got frustrated and sold the car to Sweden. The inner rockers and floors were rotted, the shorty hardtop B pillar was rotted where it attached to the floor, trunk was like yours, bad quarters, lower f fenders, on and on, so I gave up, sold it,  and after looking for over a year got a good solid car from New Mexico. There is a guy who makes good Forward Look repro panels, "R-car" in CT or RI, I forget which and forget his name, if he's still doing it he uses heavier gauge and puts in the correct swaging and makes them fuller size. More expensive but worth it.  Enjoying this DeSoto resto! Hope they pick some cool '50s colors and not some boring cliche color like red or black or something!

Believe it or not Isettas bring pretty good money these days, so do the original (50s) Fiat 500s.

At less than 1/2 the price I would... and if I won the lottery I'd get a Ford GT.
Never been a huge Viper fan...
Heresy, I know, but there it is.
