'32 Ford 5 Window Coupe, Revell, 1/25

Recommended Posts

been wanting to do another hot rod for a while

this is good value for money, box is stuffed full of sprues

options are a fendered street rod or a high boy/gasser style car

lots of bits in the box......2 engines, several wheels, 3 different hood sides/trunk lids, etc etc

plan is to do it with fenders but with the bigger high boy engine and no hood sides to show it off

no idea as to colour, definately not yellow!....probably red or orange, but i have few other pots im thinking of trying

Millners piss yellow coupe from American Graffiti was a '32 5 window which had been turned in to a Hi Boy,,,,,,,with of course the THX 1138 reg plate

A door isn't a door when it's ajar.  This I understand 
But a window isn't a window when it's a windscreen is confusing.  

Time for some good ol etymology 
 

window (n.)

c. 1200, literally "wind eye," from Old Norse vindauga, from vindr "wind" (see wind (n.1)) + auga "eye" (from PIE root *okw- "to see"). Replaced Old English eagþyrl, literally "eye-hole," and eagduru, literally "eye-door." Compare Old Frisian andern "window," literally "breath-door."

Originally an unglazed hole in a roof. Most Germanic languages later adopted a version of Latin fenestra to describe the glass version (such as German Fenster, Swedish fönster), and English used fenester as a parallel word till mid-16c.
