  • Show Us Your Other Antique Cars

    I know many of us have other antique cars to go along with the Model A's. I only have 2 Studebakers on the road, but have been driving Studebakers since 1968 when they were just another cheap used car.

    Sunday I drove my car 100 miles to show it to an expert painter, looking for some advice. I used polishing compound to clean up the paint from the cowl back, but the paint on the hood and front fender tops don't have enough paint to polish. Brad suggested I keep the original paint and just paint the front clip. It did polish out better than I expected, and I now agree with Brad to keep the original paint. It's far from perfect, but sure isn't bad for original paint. This will also save me a lot of work and money. I took these pictures today so I'd have some good pictures with the old wide whitewalls. I'm going to have to install my new radials pretty soon, but unfortunately they only have a narrow whitewall.

    Four years ago I bought a restored 1950 Champion, and 6 weeks ago I drove my 1950 Land Cruiser home and started fixing things on it. I took these pictures at the Anoka State Hospital, which was my first job out of high school. This is a large complex of 10 cottages and other buildings, but some have been torn down, and the other have been vacant for many years. Some are now being rehabbed into living quarters for homeless vets.

      Jeff, I like your toys, I have a soft spot for Model A roadsters.

      But what are those cars in the last pic?

      Looks like you have 4 of 'em.

      The cars in the last picture are Nissan Figaro's.
      I only own one of them.
      Very rare car, right hand drive, made for the Japanese market only.
      Have owned this car for 10 years.

        SeaSlugs, it is a 1959 Morris Minor (series2) Model 1000, the rebuild of this one took me almost 2 years as the condition I got it in was like it was in a Demolition Derby and then parked under water for awhile, also most parts had to be ordered from England. I had to teach myself to weld and do body work for this one. There are about 100,000 of these still on the road in G.B. and some videos on utube if you are interested.

      I was wondering the same thing, but the picture lists it as 1959 Morris Minor 1000.

          Wasn't this subject on a thread not so long ago? I could have sworn I added a photo of my two 31 Ford panel trucks. I've since sold them. I might have a photo in the files.

            I thought there was a thread like this, but I searched and couldn't find it, so I figured it might be on some other site. If it shows up maybe the two can be combined to one thread.

            I searched my files, I must have deleted them when I deleted my garage photos. I sold them also when I sold my garage collection.

            I bought my first collector car years ago. The seller delivered it and as he rolled it off the roll-back, I noticed his forearms were the size of my quads! His name was Mitch, yup, the same. Since then I have bought a number of cars, mostly Model A's, and have sold only a couple, usually to get enough "jack" to buy another, higher quality antique car. Here is what I now have: a 1929 Blindback Fordor, a 1930 Tudor, a 1930 Canadian Roadster, a 1931 Coupe, a 1957 T-Bird, and a 1991 Vet. I think of my cars as men's jewlery (with no disrespect to the to the female owners of collector cars on this forum, some of whom have shown themselves to be great mechanics and appreciative collectors).
