Not much has happened since the first of the year but we're
rolling again. Took the A back to Boling Bros. now that Derrek has
a little room. Floor, steering column and a few other final things
before it's ready to paint. Hope to have it a driver by summer

Thanks for all the encouragement guys! I'm very happy with
the way the car is turning out. It's taking a bit longer than I
had hoped but they always seem to do that. Nothing good is easy.
There will be video when it's fired, trust me! You may notice
that it has a single four on top of the Y right now, that is only
temporary. I stocked up on a bunch of 97s and Derrek is going to "fab"
up a custom 4 x 2 intake for the motor. I'll have him get some pix
as that comes along.
If you think there are a few more carbs than what I need
it's because I have another engine that needed a couple.
I don't want to overlap projects but after the A is done
there is another car lined up to add to my sickness. A man just
can't get enough "T" and "A".

OK! Here's the idea. I want to run 4x2s but I don't like
"Logs", the 4x2 intakes I've seen for other engines aren't the
best either. (carbs dirrectly over the intake ports) So I was
thinking "Box style cross ram". I was looking at pix on the web
and this Mopar one kinda looks like what I was thinking. Kinda!
So this is what I came up with in poster board.
No doubt the first try will look a bit different and all ports
will be divided but I think you can get the idea. Then think of
four of those new Strombergs on top

Here's a little bit of progress. Head lights and tail
If you want any info on the Fab work here contact Derrek at
Boling Bros. Early Iron. They do great work!

Now for the updates. We were s'posed to get some body work
going today but other projects got in the way. But there is some
more work on the floor to share. Park brake lever is mounted,
battery box is in and the rear seat still fits in the original
position. Car is coming together nicely!
Body comes off this week and then prep for paint.
Or so we plan.

The floor is in and now the body is off to start getting it
ready for paint.
It's getting close! Only a million little things left to do.
Gas tank all cleaned up!
