I must have 49-54 Chevy fever real bad because tonight I share a 4 door. This car looks to be in great shape .
The 49 4 door has great styling shave the back door handles and you have to look twice to see it is a 4 door.
Got to go low with this style, wide whites, maybe split manifold 6 or mild small block.
Budget would Mexican blanket interior or if money permits an updated mohair would be nice
from the pictures the paint looks presentable .
I'm not bragging but ...
So I am on ebay the other day and I recognize a car from days gone by and have to click on it . 1939 Ford Sedan
thanks for looking in
Somewhere around New Years I decided that if I ever wanted to get my 49 Buick finished I should stop distracting myself with all the other cars I wish I could build and focus on the ones I already have.
Well maybe it is the extreme cold outside and the fact that I can't work on the 49 where it is but I am dreaming again and I think I have some residual dream cars to share with you.
So instead of almost daily let's go to a couple a week and we will start right now.
49-54 chevs have been an obsession lately and this ragtop would fill the bill nicely
I hope you are not getting tired of looking at 49-52 Chevrolet cars because we found another one. At family activities over the Holidays we reminisce and learn new things. I have a relative who drives truck. He now has a regular run to Winnipeg. That makes it seem a lot closer. Now he always has a return load so that means looking for something I could drive back. So I don't often look at previously messed with cars but if it would make it home from Manitoba it should be considered. 1950 Chevrolet Fastback
Chevy 11 project
We have a 1968 Chevrolet Chevy 11 Nova project in the stable. Plans are to build a nice street car that can make a few passes at the track as well. Progress is slow. I am always looking for one that is closer to being done to speed up the process. Today I came across this one : 1968 Nova. It is hard to tell if it is any better than ours and it is a good road trip away but I would like to go see it.
When I was in High school my girlfriend, now wife, bought me a slot car track for Christmas. We had hour and hours of fun with it over the years . My friends would come over and we would race and visit and have a good time. Well times change and I no longer had a place to keep it set up so away in a box it went. When the kids were little we played with it a little. So when I saw this custom speedway set up today it brought back a lot of memories.
Old cars often have great stories that go with them. When the ad says "Vegas car" you know there is at least one story in its background.
A 1969 Buick Skylark 2 door hardtop makes for one nice ride. Even with the 350 small block Buick engine is was no slouch. But add a big block and hold on.
drag car foundation
My understanding is that pro street style has passed but true drag car kept barely street legal is still cool - extra point with times still on the window. We are into 64 Impalas right now and a low rider patina rag and a full on hardtop drag car would make a killer combination.

It is Christmas Party time and what better way to travel to them than a 1952 Chevrolet 2 door Hardtop. This one looks like a solid place to start and these cars are beautiful when all fixed up.
surface rust or patina?
Don't you hate it when the wind picks up and you can hear the tarp blowing. You know the damage the rain can do in minutes .
If it happens to someone else and the damage isn't too serious it can make for a great deal. I might try to take a look at this one over the holidays. A 49-52 Chevy coupe has been on my list. Actually I drove over 3 hours to look at one several years ago, made an offer, got turned down and bought a 51 Buick instead - in hindsight it was a good deal for me - the Buick was a better car than the chevy and the road trip was great. 1949 Chevrolet coupe
