Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Allen, good obs. I've considered something like that but my trolley top is going to have to "pop up" (due to the height of my garage and the fact that the city won't allow parking a SKOOLIE on a drive overnight). If I can figure a way to use something like that it would look cool! Thanks for the tip. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Out-Frikken-Standing! (as we used to say in the Navy). Congrats on the run. I can't wait until I can pull off the same feat! And again...I'm pretty certain we have the same intercooler. Is yours a Behr? I can't make out the mode/serial number on mine but I'm really glad to see that one that looks the same just might fit.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

It is an amazing feeling when you turn the key for the first time and it fires up without hesitation. I remember the first engine I rebuilt (WAY back when) and the rush I felt when it started on the second pull. I still get that same rush nowadays.

I'm a wood guy myself so what you and Tango are doing to your rigs is miraculous!

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Roach711, What we have here is a mutual admiration society. I finished up a woodie wagon not long ago and I swear it is the one and only one I'll do---I HATE WOOD. I'm even planning on doing the interior of the bus out of steel to avoid the woodwork I admire you guys who can measure twice and cut once and have it all fit. I guess I don't have the patience for it. The wood stuff is beautiful when it is finished but it sure is easier just to melt things together.

I'll bet Tango can do woodwork though!

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

I'm still waiting on those special Oak rods for my welder.

I can get by, but I'm no woodcrafter. Like Trunt, I admire those that are. Worked with a chap who was an old school boat/ship builder. Man...I still cannot believe all the tricks that guy could do with a simple square to shape & fit boards that were anything but. Not a straight line anywhere but they went together better than my simple table-sawn right angles. Just wish he was still around to help on this project. I could sure use someone who can work with curves.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

GREAT NEWS on the joy ride !

As for the wood vs metal, there's sawdust in my blood, so wood is definitely my deal; although, I must admit melting metal together with a tiny spot of the sun makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.... Its cool
