            Pat, I am so jealous of that score.
            Do it up right. Care to leak the plans for it?

              Thanks Guys,

              I do not have firm plans for it. I plan to retire in late 2011 so I may not do a lot until then, other than plan. It will get a V-8 and Automatic/OD. I am not fully decided now whether it will be Studebaker or late model EFI. It will have AC and will be one I will be comfortable driving anywhere. I will also upgrade the suspension and brakes. I plan to do the body and paint work myself. Our local community college has a good program, I have already taken the basic course on body work, they offer a "proficiency course" that you can take up to 4 times. That gives you full use of their facilities with instructor oversight and is basically self paced to work on projects of your choosing. I will not be in a hurry to finish so that will give me time to get it just the way I want it.

              Tim, I will keep you in mind for a co-pilot. It will probably be in February or March depending on weather and trailer availability.

              Pat

                      It has arrived! Resting comfortably in it's new home.







                      Thanks to John Stroud for posting the link to the ad. Thanks to Roy Valdez for hooking me up with Lynn Elder who brought it from Idaho to California for me, Thanks Lynn! And thanks to Brian Calkins for a smooth sale transaction. Now I can start collecting parts until I am ready to start work on it once retirement comes in early 2012.

                        That's one lucky car. I can't wait to see Pat do his magic. (but I guess I'll have to)
