Boys and Their Toys

I'm really starting to believe the saying "The Only Difference Between Men and Boys is the Price of Their Toys" :)

Jesse is one of those men who loves his toys. Anything with a motor and he's in love...lol! We recently acquired a new vehicle/toy and after telling some friends about it, I promised pictures. It's not one of those vehicles you can explain very well with words, so here it is :)

The original vehicle is a late '20s early '30s Ford Roadster. And the body is made from a fiberglass mold. Of course the most exciting part (for Jesse) is the giant motor it has in it! It has a Chevy 454 for the motor, which is the same motor our giant truck has in it!

It's only about three-quarters done and still needs some minor details like lights and fenders before it can be registered. For now, it's just a fun toy to putt to the neighbors in (which is more my speed!) Once it's road ready, I'm not sure I'll be going for a ride!

  3. That car is crazy! It looks like fun but I don't think I'd want to drive it at high speeds either. :)

  7. That car is awesome! I am car fanatic so I am in awe of people that restore/rebuild cars. Good luck with the rest of the restoration work.
