    what a great thread
    thanks for bringing us along to the FABULOUS FIFTIES WEEKEND

    well done
     
  4. Nice series Ted ...... what's up with that Ford?

    Best,
     
  5. Hey Bob

    The Ford with the extra bling bling is right hand drive and I heard it was imported from down under. Not my cup of tea but the builder has some wicked fabrication skills...........

  9. 1932 Ford Phaethon Aussie models are all wood except for the sheet metal. Intelligent car collectors stay away from these at all costs.

    Great series. The cars are beautiful, except that one Ford is a bit overdone. ;-)
     
  11. Hey guys........Glad you like the pics. I have a few more to throw on. I submitted around 60 images to the Winnipeg Free Press photo editor so I find out Friday if one or more get past him. I didn't submit the pics of the mature lady in the western outfit. She was a one woman rodeo but when I talked to her I smelled the booze and she was pretty jacked up so I dumped her images to avoid her any embarassement....

    Cheers

  12. Hey Sam

    I didn't realize the Auzzie models were that different. I have built one wood bodied car a 31 Chevy 3 window coupe. There must have been at least two hundred pieces of wood to that skeleton. I was starry eyed and 15 years old at the time. Waaay too much work, now when I find a wood bodied car in the bush it stays there.......

    Cheers

    Nice shots. Looks like you had a cloudy day, sure keeps the light levels even! That Ford is way over the top. Looks like one of those Philipino taxis.
