Dennis, PNW roadster ..

My pal dropped me a note and attached a picture.

Carol,my wife of 52 years, wanted to be the first passenger in the roadster.  She got her wish.  Lots of power for that light car.  The Riley frame really helped with the build.  The engine is a 55 Hemi 331.  My wife wanted to know if she would be able to drive it to the store.  After I stepped on the gas and the car went sideways  in the road she changed her mind.

Down Under

Well another one of our chassis' has found a new home in Australia.
I don't know their rules. I wish him the best. But those skinny wood tires might not pass inspection. Omar started to build a killer truck. Hopefully Jason can finish it off nicely.

here is the mount we were talking about.
Nice and clean, simple.
And it does two things at once.
Holds the headlights and mounts the shocks.

And to think- that in 1929
Congress voted to abolish the Patent Office
They had determined and decided;
"everything that can be invented has been invented"
