A New Ride

Hey, everybody, Froggys got a new ride. And, best of all, one that RUNS!! Now, he can keep up with Uncle Norm's MooseMoBile. And, he managed to sell his F Roadster to make room for the new wheels coming from Iowa. All in all, he came out smelling like a rose in the dealing.
Right now he's sitting at home smiling like the cat in Alice's story.

Re: A New Ride

Re: A New Ride

OK.....

I'm guessing that "Froggy" refers to our own Gary K ?

Now a Durant product that runs is sure a step up for him!

Now we need the rest of the story......

Re: A New Ride

Blame it on Mr. Shilling...he alerted me to it. It is slightly modified but believe it or not, it is done exactly like the plans I had for the roadster.
Same 4 CYLINDER engine, trans and hydraulic brakes that I planned on using.
Solid body and fenders, in black of course...with wooden spoke wheels and all. I have arranged delivery hopefully in the next 30 days as the transporter can schedule.....My roadster is going to Hullco restorations in Layton, n.j. He is my lifelong friend (since we were 7 yrs old) and was with me when i bought it from Don Welsh's estate, an old Durant Star Club member from the late 1960's. More later as I learn about the touring.

Re: A New Ride

Oh OK Gary, I'm sorry I'm getting older too and my hearing is not what it used to be. Didn't want you to make an **** out of yourself. It's great that you found that car, what were the chances, to find one just the way you were going to fix one up. Send me some pictures.

Re: A New Ride

Mike .. make sure you get the ones that show the extra wheels, front and back, to hold the poor car up with once Unc Gary gets inside.

Could be Ken, I sure lucked out as handsome. Just keeping up family appearance on the male side. Its inner beauty that counts.
