Circa 1948 Nash 600?

Yes I'd agree on that.

When I grew up I had a neighbour who found a wreck of a 1948 Nash 600 and restored it.
The word 'wreck' is often missused, but in this case it is well appropriate, because it had stood in a forrest for some 25 years and consequently had not much interior or body for that matter.
I believe he saw it as a challange as he was an educated sheet metal worker and retired. I can still see in my mind when he bended the door sills out of 2 millimetre sheet metal, and it became perfect.
He also did most of the other things by himself, like the upholstery, the electrics (where he spun the wires with special thread) and the bushes which he made in a lathe.

I spent quite a lot of time at him and can safely say that I followed the whole restoration process, and learnt some as well.
I therefore have most of the car in my memory.

As a result of following such a master, for a long time I felt somewhat ashamed to join a car club as I felt I couldn't do all this myself, but I've finally came to grips because of insurance issues for my Ford, and that being a member supports the classic car issue as such. There're plenty of environmentalists who wants to get older vehicles off the road.
