    the original "hot caramel corn popper"!
    a couple other perspectives - before wiring replacement.

      Have you ever tried to keep an engine that clean?

        It would be easy to keep that clean if there were no internals, and it were simply a "shell". If internals are there, and if ever fired up, even for a few minutes, it would begin to deteriorate.

        Actually, I was kinda wondering whether there are any internals in this engine. Certainly none are needed, since it is strictly for show.

            Joe, you saw this car driving around in Nashville last fall, the same time that Carl and myself saw it. It was the two tone grey '31 sedan.

              Matt, I believe y'all. Just saying, its so purty it almost looks like a mock up, never ran nor intended to be ran. That requires a level of attention I cannot identify with, but does not mean it ain't so

                Joe, I love an over-restored car. But there's a lot to be said for a greasy driver that still sees thousands of miles a year.. Like yours. And those are usually a lot more fun!
