Default Hi, my name is brian

So I have been at alot of these meetings lately and they dont seem to be helping me at all. If anything that are making it worse!

We are in the midst of moving and the last thing I need is a stray project following me home. But like a stray puppy, they do.

I had a guy offer me a 1 owner car this weekend that his uncle bought new in 1948. When his uncle passed a few years ago this guy ended up with it, never did any of the paper work. So it is still in his uncle's name. That really doesnt bother me, we have ways to get it transferred .

It's a 1948 Chrysler imperial crown limo!!!!
Ran sand drove not to long before his uncle passed. Body is solid, all the light lenses are in tack and 90% of the glass is there. The interior is in sad shape but nothing we can't fix.

I'm thinking get it running and driving and flip it.

What do you other carcaine addiction

Wow!
The last thing anyone offered me was to punch me in the nose.
1948 Is my favorite year for post war Chryslers. Beautiful grill on these with a mile long hood.
And a limo to boot.
Some guys have all the luck.
Keep us posted.

I like that stray LB and see that WA plate. Nice score. Got one of my treasures out of BC awhile back.

Default new project

l am calling the autoholics meeting to order

l am skull, (hi skull), today was a bad day, l found a perfect project, a 1948 chevy flat nose plumber van with the wrap around windsheild and they would not sell it to me

l guess l am going to have to suffer thru with the ones l have. thank you, next speaker, you have the floor.

*good score*

my friend who passed away recently was a hoarder, sitting rotting away is a whole field of things like caddy limos, caddy convetables, regular caddy's and many different makes of ambulances, odd ball stuff and airport haulers, at last count the auditor's were up to 148 vehicles, so l think maybe we are just amatures and our addiction is not so bad.

the grand kids are going to get almost all the of them and sell them off to people who hopefully can save a few. lots of variety, early 194O's to 198O's. that is not counting the good stuff in the 3 barns, the auditors have not got to them yet, l was not allowed in there when he was alive, not even the man's family went in the barns, l really want to know what he had stashed, l am a good friend of the grand kids so l was invited to poke around soon, BUT N0 PICS they said.



Later
