Herb is the master, his work inspires me to carry on with my insignificant BS. Thanks to Mr Kephart, my 2 beloved Shays have pinion gears which will never wear out.

Thanks Si!

I intend giving the car a little more color, enough that it stands out a little bit better in the gloom of the shed, yet still looks rusty and neglected.

As for never getting it running---well here is a little off topic--which we don't worry about much here----

This followed me home some years back



Just over a year later



so never say never!

Thanks Rod

It's a '28 AB Capitol Chevrolet--last year for the 4 cylinder engine, first year for 4 wheel brakes.

Looks stock from outside, but has Isuzu 2.2 diesel engine with Eaton supercharger, Volvo 4 speed with overdrive transmission, and Nissan pickup rear. Aside from upholstery, all my work. Worst part was peeling all the sheet metal off the body to replace all the wood framing (most rotten) and then tacking all the body panels back on. Could have done 2 1/2 Fords in the same amount of time.

I've actually seen this little jewel and, believe me, it looks as good close up as it does in the pictures!  Great job, Herb.  :bow:
