This is being driven almost every day,rain or shine, and so far has been 100% reliable.

Wish I had an old pickup to drive. :|

My brother drives the black one. It's sitting in my driveway at this very minute.

The one my dad drives is a '36 too, but it's blue.

Replaced the 20 year old water pump this weekend.

It looks more dramatic than it really was. Only took about 20 minutes to get to that point. We're thinking about rerouting the MAF and intake to the passenger side and finding a prettier upper radiator hose.
Also, just out of view, some asshole keyed the fuck out of the passenger front fender. Happened sometime last week. Rock chips are earned by years of driving. Vandalism is a whole different thing.

Word on the street is that this thing got wrecked. Haven't talked to my brother since Sunday so I don't have any details. Fuck!

I saw a couple pics but haven't seen it in person. It's pretty bad. I guess he hit one of those barrels full of sand near some road construction while reaching for his phone (yes, just like the Allstate Mayhem commercial). Hard hit on the left front. Took out the bumper, fender, grille, radiator, hood, door glass, front suspension, and it won't start. I can't imagine that the frame isn't damaged too. Likely a technical total but still fixable. My brother is pretty sore and has some cuts/stitches on his face.

We went south this morning and spent some money. My brother bought a pair of '36 fenders, a grille (not shown), a hood, inner fenders, and headlights. I bought a pair of '35 fenders and a passenger door.

The door I got is pretty straight, especially considering it's 80+ years, but more importantly -- really rust free. That's a rarity for these things.

He's planning to order a new chassis with a Mustang II, reuse the engine, transmission, rearend, do the body work, and give it a driver quality black repaint. Hope it doesn't take him 17 years to get as far as I did with mine.
