    "IT'S ALIVE!!"  The most thrilling moment of any restoration... your work moving under its own power.  Thanks to Merle and the Dallas MAFCA guys for the help.  Congrats to Bill and Chris for getting Cassie on the road.
    New bed just about done.  My Dad put some serious time into the design and build.  It's a perfect fit on the FABCO extended frame.  The look is based on the stock AA bed, matches the rest of the truck pretty well, and is very functional.   Time for test drive and celebratory beers.
  Got our 1929 long bed AA onto the road to stretch its legs, 30 mph felt like breaking the sound barrier.  Not like a modern car!
In that short drive we lost both windshield screws, but the bed and the running gear ran pretty well considering how long it had been sitting.  Next up is fixing the horn, head and tail lights, and installing the window glass.
It sounds like one of the exhaust valves may be sticking and it has a bit of an exhaust leak, but its hard to explain how much fun it is to drive this thing around the groves.  These trucks have a very unique sound and smell, and each of the miles it was driven today was preceded by hours of labor on its bugs.  Hopefully, this one will be on parade duty for a long time to come. Morning well spent.
  Learning to drive in our 1929 "AA", cruising through the orange groves with serious determination and control of 4000 lbs of old iron.  Good use of an old truck on a lazy Sunday morning in the Central Valley
  This trunk is for a 1927 Rolls Royce.  Its fully folding front and padded black leather exterior added to the restoration challenge but the finished product is looking pretty good.  We are looking forward to seeing the trunk and car back together, it should be a striking combination.  
  This is our latest project.  A custom truck for a hotrod with a very differently shaped lid and padded exterior.  Designed by the owner, this truck is truly one of a kind.   Need a trunk? Call us, we can probably do it.
