Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

As stated in post #10 it's very interesting and entertaining to view this up close and from a distance. The composition was well thought out and I hold it in high regard. It's also admirable that a...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

One more from slightly further back. Perhaps V8Coopman can enlarge it. Anyway, you get the idea. It's very interesting and entertaining to view. I recall the art world got publicity when this...

Thank you Marcus.
It would be interesting if any members whose cars are on the flag would post that information. Might be fun to start a list of participants if there is any interest. Just a...

Re: Fordbarn Shirt, Poster

Holy Cow! I have 2 of those posters in mint condition. My Dad must have bought them as both our '32's are in/on it. They've been rolled up safely in the closet all these years. Dad passed in 2016...

Re: dull paint

Hilarious! Off topic but my brother is a '32 Ford guy. Period. Whenever he comes in close contact with my '49 Nash he puts a paper bag over his head. For those with long memories recall the Unknown...

Re: dull paint

I don't drink hard liquor either. Dave Mckenna jazz piano on Youtube might help. Seriously, I'd like to know what has developed over the years in paint chemistry. Surely there are some crackerjack...

Re: dull paint

Interesting juxtapostion going on. GB Sisson recently posted a thread titled "Whose gonna fill Their shoes". So an '85 Crown Victoria is now 35 years old. In 1970 a '35 Ford would have been 35 years...

Re: Back to the barn with a '38

Got to agree with you Tinker. Unsurprisingly when I went to get grease for the travel trailer the "Disc brake" grease was more expensive. That's when I wondered why and did my research. There's an...

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

I'll take one on the chin for the team of the ignorant. I don't know the difference between a skirtless fender and a skirted one. Can someone explain or post a pic?
