Hey guys, I recently picked up a very nice 1926 Chevy. I've known about the car for years and years but only got to see it once before the day I went and picked it up. I have wanted this car since the day I heard about it so when the chance came up to get it I didn't hesitate.

IT was my bosses father's car. He restored it along with a 1921 Ford Model TT I took that truck got it running and driving and sold it for her and I bought the Chevy for myself. It's mostly all original with the exception of the fuel pump and fan.I will be asking questions about those shortly I'm trying to focus and get my Hudson done before starting on getting this one going. It's not going to take much but I will be having questions on how it operates. Anyway here are some pics of it and I included one of the Ford just because it was a nice truck. I wouldn't have minded having that one too but I only have so much space.

Here it is with my baby. I've owned the Vette for almost 20 years and have done tons to it.

And here is the Ford, this was a neat truck. No normal controls as we know them for driving. IT was an interesting bird for sure.

I also got these old gas rations. I'm going to mount these in a shadow box. I like things like this

Anyway that's all I have for now. When I bring the car into the work shop I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions, hopefully you guys can help me out with it and I can get it going back down the road again.

They were only
about $800 brand new.

Most 20's era's
while nice cars are
not a good "investment".

'77 Pontiac Ventura SJ
'85 Lincoln Town Car
Ain't to proud to think out loud.

I have a friend who has a 1925 touring on which he did a frame off restoration about 10 years ago. He also has 2 28s, a 34 pickup and a depot hack in the back of his shop waiting for restoration.
