Hmmmm. After seeing the flames, now I'm starting to reconsider my polish job. Do you know if he covered the matt finish and then polished, or did he polish everything, then etch? I'm starting to think about doing flames or some other design over my whole airstream. That is really cool. Maybe huge script that says Wally's Caravan or something.

That car truly is amazing. Hat's off.

Thumbs up What goes around comes around....

Fantastic workmanship that is beautiful...

This display was at the Early Ford V/8 Club meet several years ago...would have liked to have had the real thing instead of just the pics.

Not much of a TV though....

This is the 1936 Ford Sedan built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel. This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently in running & in roadworthy condition. The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great. All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them from service. These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year. The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quiet.

That'll do.

You really should pose it in front of the trailer so it looks like it's hooked up, and get some pictures.

That's a nice car and I bet it handles a lot nicer than the lead sled original.

Here's another possibility for coolest TV, but you better keep it under 88 mph because odd things happen at that speed.

Golly, those are still gorgeous cars even by today's standards. Too bad the manufacturer didn't have a viable business plan.
