Bye Bye Tub
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:55:17 PM »
After 10 years and many miles of smiles we decided to sell the tub and get a closed car, with role up windows.  We purchased this 40 Ford coupe here in AZ. It is a perfect car for us. We took the Tub to The Run to The Sun in Lake Havasu and sold it to a couple that live there. It will be missed! But it was time for a change. I have included some pictures of the 40 Coupe. It is strawberry parfait (not pink!!!)

   Gonna miss seeing the Tub around for sure... sometimes, you've just gotta move on.
Have fun with your new car.  I'd bet your already thinking about making a few changes!  ;)

 :) Dave, congrats... in my opinion you can't go wrong with a '40.  I am contemplating the same move (in the spring). I like you , have had my  rod for many years (38) and I admire you for being able to make the change. Bet you will have LOTS of fun in that '40 !

Dave, enjoy the '40.  Do you have plans to personalize, i.e., 'make it yours' ?

Thanks for the comments guys. It's tough selling off the tub but this car just has everything I want in a hot rod/street rod, including the color, which has kind of grown on me the more I look at it. I know Phil, but the color is really called Strawberry Parfait I guess kind of pink lol.

Thanks Noel, DavyJ. I really wanted a Deuce coupe but could not find one comparable to the 40 in my price range.
