Barn Find Chevy

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

I’ll paint with the body on. There’s still more body work to, then lots of surface prep.

Will no doubt run well, but my guess is, it will also run fast. I would buy stock in a good tire company, you have the potential for going through a little rubber. Nothing sweeter than the smell of burning rubber in the morning.

I love building B.B. chevys.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

It’s a fully functioning car now. This is from a couple of months ago. I’ve since stripped all paint off the body panels and have done some limited body work. The plan is for paint this spring/early summer, and I’m going to farm that out. I’m just not set up to paint an automobile. It runs good. Very, very good. 8)

I was talking with fellow cub owner Bob McCarty today, and it was brought to my attention that I never posted finished pictures of this project. I finished it towards the end of last summer, and have enjoyed many miles on it so far.

Looks great Harold.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
