1972 Sweeeeedish Saaaaaaab V4

Nothing like seeing a vintage car being used as daily driver. This car rolled in close to my office and I had to go out and take a peak.

This also explains the lousy cell phone pictures but it is what it is.

This 1972 Saab V4 is in excellent condition. Even the dash pad is mint. Now I want one!

The body is super straight and those wheels looks just right on this car.

The interior is perfect.

The flowing rear of this car shows design that was way ahead if its time.

I have never seen these Panasport/Minilite wheels in this bolt pattern. Coolness.

So what do we learn? Well, not all vintage cool Swedish cars are made by Volvo!

 

Lets take a spin in the time machine

Sometimes I have the need to visit recycling places to see old cool stuff that I absolutely do not need. Having said that. You never know what you will stumble across.

How about an old Formica table?

What about building a house around this pink stove? I bet Elvis had one.

I have no interest in riding old bikes but they sure look cool.

Vintage oil pumps makes for great garage art but they also take up floor space.

Vintage radios are cool…to look at. Most of the time they just end up taking up shelf space.

One would think these wall games are collectible but there is very little demand.

Fun to look at but that’s it. OK, back to playing with cars!

 

 

 

 

Rolle Nailer details

Got the modifications done and the “body work” finished on the heater housing. The gun metal grey hammer paint looks nice. More on this heater project later…

 

This is the down tube on the headers. It will sneak inside the frame and be painted black so it visually disappears.

Custom made weed burners are ready to assemble. The black down tubes makes them pretty much invisible…almost.

Also, the black “hole” in the block off plates makes the header look uncorked…almost.

Mo later…

Harry’s “back in the day” Hot Rod Pictures

I bought a vintage Volvo from Harry and his wife a few years ago. I learned that he has been a car guy and hot rodder all his life and here are some pictures to prove it.

Gotta love this stuff:

A Mopar 413 Ramcharger powered this red hot rod. The stick figure in the front is Harry himself.

With a ride like this it was not a problem to atract the ladies.

Just love the stance and look of old hot rods.

The hot rod started life with a different color. Check out the two color top insert.

 

More evidence that the ladies dig guys with hot rods…

A completey restored 1937 Dodge truck was the ride of choice for a while.

One of the earlier cars Harry owned was this 1926 Ford Model T. Bought it for $150.00 and sold it for $300.00. They only car he made money on!

Thanks Harry for sharing your time machine with us.
