Scanned Some More Photos This Morning.

This time, It’s not an Austin Healey with a mystery engine, but a restoration thread of a 1930 Model A Ford in 1972.

No V8 swap, no hot rod, just a amateur restoration.

Was it interesting? Sure.

Is it exciting? Probably not at the time.

So, a question: What would be the equivalent restoration today? Dad was 30, and was restoring a 42 year old car. What 42* year old car today would a 30 year old restore and not modify it?

*which oddly enough would be a 1972 model car, which would have been in showrooms when these photos were taken.

And for those of you thinking I was lazy, just standing around like a 3-year old, I actually pulled my finger out of my nose long enough to do a little wet sanding. (although I’m not sure how long I actually stuck around after this photo was taken)
