action and quite a lot of ale - but they managed to do it in one day.
Part 1 Rocky Horror Showzam
My third show with the boys, This time Willard had a prior engagement and

this adventure. The next morning, Rick and I were on the road. Rick, did
not knowing what I had up my sleeve. When we got out to Rockys I share the
idea with them and we all went out full guns at it. We all had a great time
doing it. Other members of the Hoodlums car club joined in the fun. What a

1953 Oval Window being cut up - 2.
Our 1953 3 fold rag top was found in a horrendous state, having been
exposed to the elements for years. The floorpan consists mostly of
fibreglass patches, the heater channels are non existent, the wings were
hacked as was the rear H valance. It was decided that we would cut the roof
off at the waistline, instead of just the sunroof clip, to transplant onto
a another early roof damaged oval. Some other parts were saved: doors, W
decklid, dashboard, switches etc. Watch as we take the roof off over the
period of an hour.
