The plan is: 8BA flathead bored out mild cam, old Edmunds heads, old Sharp 4bbl intake, old Carter wcfb carb(this may change for drivability) MSD distributer, 5 speed T5 tranny, 9inch ford rearend. Disk brake up front on solid axle…"
Well the '36 ford is my all time favourite car, particularly the Jack Calori coupe and the Pierson Bros cars and the recent modern customs by Jon Fisher and the Cole Foster built coupe for Micheal Anthony plus of course the John Mearns…"
"Ok, slow to re-post here. Yes I have a '36 Ford. I've had it since about 1988 so lets just say its a long term project. My dad's was my inspiration, he had a '36 hot rodded back in '49. I couldn't find any good…"
"You've got a '36 5w coupe project ! WOW lucky fella, this is one of my most favourite cars of all time, the first one being the late Jack Calori's 'classic' '36 3w coupe custom.......ohh if only i won the lottery !
"Had to join so I could chime in! Way cool EMW, My granmothers boyfriend had a B MW simular to that. Thanks for adding the before shot, really shows your mods, the result is well done. What make is the car?

"That's very cool! I really like the motorcycle. I was super into motorcycles for a while. I still have a few around, but I used to have dozens. Nothing as nice as yours though. (you can see pictures here:…"
"That bike is way too ephing cool! Not to get to personal but do those sell for big $$ over there? My hot rods will prob. be the disregarded MG's of my father-in-law. That car looks so much like a toy, ha!, I had to look close at the pic to get…"
"Ah, now I found the pics! Wow, you own all these cars? Holy shit!!
I have visited a few meetings here in Germany - this hole hot rod stuff is becomming quite popular now - sometimes more popular as I like...

Thanks so much for your note. You're right. We do share a lot of 'idears'! Really enjoyed looking at the work on your site. De 'obtskisten' en de 'auge' are especially wonderful. (Thankfully German and Dutch have enough in common so that i can navigate your sight pretty well.)
I see you are in Berlin. I'm dying to go to Berlin. I've never been but i've heard that it is a spectacular place to be as an artist.
I play in a duet called "The Uke Box' We perform, give ukulele workshops and have a traveling musical market. We're busy booking our tour for this summer. Maybe you know of some art/music festivals that we could possibly add to our tour? I'd be happy to receive any information on this subject.
I'm off to go explore your website some more.
Have Fun & Take Care,
hey, Gobi how are ya today? just wanted ta explain the madness of the redwood solid body build i,m workin on. the pic you commented on shows the back of the guitar,and the aluminum can in it has an open top. what i,m gonna do is make a wood cover plate and install the mag pup in the wood cover plate.the wood cover plate will set on top of the open can and the can will house the mag pup to produce a resonator type sound but it will be from an electric point of view instead of an acoustic point of view. its a theory that has been tested before by a man named Zemaitis.he used this design on the solidbody guitars he built. he put the pickups in a can to get the resonator type sound from them.
Hey, Gobi I saw you mentioned wanting to pick up your guitar again after a long while in your comment on the podcast page. When I got into cng's I had not played in about 10 years. I have fell in love with stringed instruments more than I did back when I got my 1st guitar when I was 14. Build yourself a cbg- you will be instantly hooked! ---Joker
