   Hi Ron
   It's been quite some time since I've been active on yblocksforever.  Got caught up in a flathead build.  As I said several years ago I still like your "37 and it looks like it will be a beauty.  I had to sell my "37 convertible last year as I also have one of those 5 year projects. Mine is a chopped '35 coupe which will also receive a blown Y.   I am particularly interested in your ram horn  exhaust manifolds as I even now have a question about headers/exhaust on the tech forum.  It won't look as nice as yours as I'm going for an old drag car look that has been updated to make it street legal  Really like your '37 and it makes me miss mine  Based on what you've done I'm leaning towards the rams horn manifold  Hope you don't mind a copycat.  Your multiyear project is a little ahead of mine although I did paint mine in satin black (equipment paint) over the bumps and lumps to make it look a little more authentic. Since I'm building something so similar to your '36 do you have any words of wisdom or warnings for me????
    Still think your '56 is the coolest hardtop with that side chrome. 
   Thanks

Mike;

Good to hear from you! The 35 Project sounds cool. Why don't you send me a PM and tell  me what you're thinking regarding the old drag car look. Front suspension type, tranny, chassis, rear end, stuff like that. I had to do over a lot of the work the guy in Maine did, so that set me back in time and money. Also, the T-5 probably would have been stout enough if I kept the VS-57 supercharger. The stock WC T-5 is rated at handling around 300HP. With the new 471 blower on my 331 cu. in motor, I think I may send the tranny off to "G Force Transmissions" for a makeover. They basically gut the tranny and rebuild it to handle 550 HP. I guess the biggest mistake I made was buying the rusted out shell in the first place. Although I do feel good about saving it from a grave in an Iowa farm field.

Hi Rono 
Sent you an email last night but being the illiterate techie that I am you better let me know here if you received it.
  Here's hoping

Hi Ron 

   Ok, I give up.  The analog dinosaur can't send a message.  If you will explain how, I would be soooo appreciative.

Mike;
Go in to "Your Profile" and you will see a tab that says "SEND PM". That is the tab you use to send private messages on the site. I haven't done it in a while, but I think this is right.

Well, this month starts year 6 of this project. Funny how life gets in the way of the important stuff. Anyway, making some good progress on the body. Doors, hood, and deck lid are all done and ready for final primer. I found NOS front (outer) fenders that a buddy is bring out from N.J. this summer.

I understand how long it takes to build a car. It took me 10 years to build a '40 while working, raising kids, etc. My wife and I drove that car all over the southeast for 20 years, so it is worth the effort and wait. Yours will be beautiful.
