The Jalopy Journal

[ATTACH] Pic from three years back.
Here’s a couple, that found their way into my garage. They both look a little different now.
Sure glad I went up on Friday.
Swap meet was stellar and I found quite a few golden nuggets.
Took a buddy along that had never been and he was...
For firewall, see pics (alchemy is always right :) )
For frame webbing, FWIW I prefer the green vintique stuff (and I run the same strip from the...
And for hockey fans......
Edit: for better angle, here’s a different pic.
The old “Canadian Pickers” shop.
It’s a busy neighborhood now.
Lots of snow out in the mountains still, but it was a nice toasty day in town today.
Sun was out today so went tanning (top off) for a couple hours.
Edit: glide seat
Lookin forward to the next big gathering of 32’s this summer at Deuce Days in Victoria BC.
It’s one shilo of Deuces (did I use that correctly?)....
Depending on forecast and length of drive/trip, the top is on or off.
BopTop makes it a breeze either way (pun intended).
Nice to see them dressed.
Better yet, get to enjoy driving them.
But I love em when they’re still naked.
[ATTACH] Not sure if inner fender structure same across gm lines, but I did stuff some GM (corvette) rallies with BFGoodrich 255/70s under my 56...
Great build. Enjoying the read.
Hope you don’t mind my 2 cents but maybe my experience can help.
I did a tko600 behind a zz383 in a 32 five...
Bought a drake one once that needed to be a little narrower, so just added a little extra curve to it by putting a little weight on it and bending...
Nice little run on Saturday with a pit stop for a milkshake at a local burger joint.
[ATTACH] Better half is waiting in line, but this is the first milkshake run in 2019.
Just sittin here thinking about the upcoming Northwest Deuce Days (less than 120 days away now) and thought I’d bump this thread to see if folks...
Put em on the 5W in 2016 (5.00-16s and 7.00-18s) and the roadster this past summer (5.00-16s and 7.50-16s) and love em. Balanced up great (minimal...

Other than the reference to horizontal...
Not a big pic taker, but here's a few to show shifter/trans position.
1st pic to illustrate where the mid shift location comes up through the...
Sounds like you’re kinda doing what I did (except I went SBC/TKO600/Ford 9”) and you’re gonna love rowing gears in that style of roadster. :)...
I’m heading there again. Went with a group from southern Alberta in 2016 and it was great. Long drive from Calgary without tunes or a/c but I had...
FWIW, I’ve always liked the look of a fairly level 32 frame based on the topside of the frame rails. (See avatar for example. I think the roadster...
Gotta love the 80's.
Here's a couple that came my way. Funny how they were both on orange cars.
Our drives are usually through the mountains west of town, but our drive down to Medicine Hat, with this stop on the way home provided a...
First up, congrats on the new ride.
I usually don't do the advice thing, but as you've asked and I've recently done similar 'updates' on older...
