The Jalopy Journal
I was there for Old6's pit thrash and a couple more as I recall. Fun times in dirt pits that are bonded in our memories.
One more vote for you to continue posting on this build. Always nice to see how it can be done. Even when I'm not going to scratch build a body...
Amazing how much oil can squirt through a small hole, even when not under pressure.
Only thing to say about that is "Drool"!
See you at Eagle Field Carl. Looking forward to hearing that beast run.
That thing is definitely gonna be one cool hotrod.
They grow on you. I built my first (sort of a banjo thing with a cookie tin for the body) in March of 2012 and now I'm up to 26 assorted builds,...
In my other hobby of building cigar box guitars as well as hotrodding I have learned to look at everyday objects with a "how could I use this"...
Looks like you capped it with a piece of aluminum doorway threshold plate.o_O
What is the purpose of a water pump when the block is filled with aluminum?o_O
The reason the race car needs a fuel gauge is to prevent the embarrassment of running out of fuel as you are pulling up for your burn out. Seen it...

Look behind the machinists scale at the angle of the tube out of the flange.
Haven't you learned how to change the oil with the engine in the car?
Take the beads out and bake them in the oven (above the temperature that water boils at) and dry them out and use them over. A company I worked...
[ATTACH] Mine are barely noticeable. 6" wide on the front, 7" wide on the rear.
You may be mad, but definitely in a good way. That's a beautiful piece of automotive art.
Looks good. What engine is that? Don't recognize the front mount distributor.
Used bimetal hole saws for my intake and exhaust manifold plates and poking all the holes in my front axle on the HA/GR project. Just run them...
Heal fast and heal well.
All that needs is a bunch of holes to make it right.
Instead of grinding the bolt to a point you can drill the right size hole in the end and press a ball bearing into it.
You need to have a build thread on that Amilcar knockoff. We need more information.
Any prize for the closest guess?o_O
What's not to like?
Following your build...love trucks.
That's why I try to avoid Wal Mart.
