The Kolden Report: Super Savers Special, April 14, 2013

Hi, kids!
 
Welcome to all of you new subscribers!  Enjoy the ride and feel free to share the Kolden Reports as you see fit. 
 
Deepest thanks go out to the fine folks in Glasgow,  particularly the Walleye's Unlimited folks who work like a well oiled machine.  Thanks also to everyone who stopped by the Valley Event Center to see my latest creations and visit a bit.  Your support is greatly appreciated, as is that of you folks who took home some of my art.   Congratulations to those of you who won prizes in my "Give Back" drawing as well.
 
Thank you to all of you for the support and encouragement you give me.  I would not have learned this much or come this far, without all of you.    I've said it before and I'll say it again, "You are the fuel in my tank!"
 
Finally, thank you to some super savers of fine rides, for inviting me to "play" in your treasure chest.  Although it was spitting rain the day I whipped in, I got some good ones!  It'd be hard not to, with subjects THAT photogenic.    Enjoy!
 

 
Lightning bolt bliss.  (Love the wet stainless or chrome....deepens the paint color too!)
 

 
Rusty bolts, bailing wire and luck.... ALL you need to keep an old Ford on the road!
 

 
Favorite FORD.  (Love the rain drops cascading down the side of the hood.)
 

 
Sleek.  (Reminds me of a greyhound running full on!)
 

 
Class act.
 

 
The "eyes" have it!
 

 
  Twin I Beam.  (Hm. Sounds like structural steel, not a Ford!)
 

 
Parts is parts!  (Don't even need the word "Ford" to know what THIS is.)
 

 
These next few are for YOU, Russell!
 

 
Excellent Emblem!  (But WHY did the put they hood latch/handle, right over the logo?)
 
 

 
LOVE those turn signals!
 

 
A closer look.
 
 

 
Before decals.
 

 
 
Pitting and paint.  (LOVE that color blue!)
 

 
Plain Jane.  (Peeling Jane?)
 

 
Sidebar. 
 

 
V-8
 

 
Paint is paint,.  (Love that patch on the lower right.  Wonder what happened?)
 

 
Midnight madness.  (LOVE all the colors and textures in this one...)

I was recently asked, "Where are the dodges?"  Truth is, you tell me!
