I'm done with that project, I signed off on that so we'll never know, I did what I had to do project wise, some people you just have to get away from.

What I would like to see is that Cadillac hearse street rod. That must be almost road ready or at least pretty close to it.

Paint stripper and serious work with cabinet scrapers then a lot of fine sanding, masking and spraying for the clear and the black. Those are split rims, he painted those silver.

Ray is very fussy. He could have converted from ball bearings no roller bearings at a reasonable expense but  nooooooooo, he had to keep it all original. He had his machinist make new bearing races and he had them heat treated and it's all back together now. There's a company in Maine of all places that restores the old radiators and he shipped it there to have it rebuilt. New spark plugs or a distributor cap ? Good luck with that, get out your check book.

I'll have to get some pictures of the entire car, it has the original top and leather upholstery, 14K on the mileage. Obviously somebody kept that car well stored, most of them don't fair that well in storage. The wood is all solid too, that's what usually doesn't fair well unless stored in a dry environment, it dry rots.

That came from my stash of Cadillac jewelry, solid brass. What am I going to do with that ? Send it to Mr. Cadillac in Canada. I searched online, none like that one could be found.

I know. It's crazy. It's hard to believe that I've been retired since 2005, 13 years ago.
When you are at work you can't wait to punch out and go home, you're always watching the clock
and that makes the day drag by veeerrry slowly. When you don't have to do that anymore the days
and years pass by veeerrry quickly.
This is me when I retired
