    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Maybe this should be on a WoodenCar forum?

    More to go on? That's so pessimistic Paul. How about this: A blank slate.

    There is an old car in the woods on my neighbor's property that is in much the some condition.
    Not much to go on.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    That's like my neighbor: tore his whole house down--except the mudroom and part of his dining room--so as not to change the tax basis on his home during a (an almost) complete renovation.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I have mahogany, white oak, ash, and maple laying around too. I’m sure I could find something to skin it with.

    I’m more the type to fix a car up and drive it, rather than going for a perfect restoration, but that one might take a little work to make it a reliable driver...

    The diagonal siding on that chimney was invented by lumber dealers to ensure demand for replacement siding.

    Dumbest spit ever.

    Something's funny about the roofing too
    Must be the same lumber dealer.
    A lonely barn builder would be just the thing here

    It's nice to say 'mucho'. It means a lot.

    If I wanted to have hours of fun with wood while working on a car I’d go for a Model A Town Sedan instead.

    Been there, done that. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
    All that chicken wire and burlap in the roof was just the beginning, then I got to the header over the windshield...

    Yeah, but how can you have a proper car without wood, chicken wire and burlap?
