    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!

    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

    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.

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

    that color looks pretty darn close to the "correct" color that i used on the '40. of course my paint job is not nearly close to the awesome job in the O.P. pic!

    Building a car like that is kinda like putting together a plastic model car, then you sit it on the shelf and look at it; only take it off the shelf once in awhile, very carefully, then carefully put it back on the shelf.
    Its beautiful though.

    The whole car is overwhelming. The bottom of the running boards are exposed wood, that has been finished and stained. Craig's attention to detail is pretty amazing.
