The Jalopy Journal
The Norman Timbs Special has to be one of the top scratch-built cars ever. I can just stare at it all day.
Found one more shot (here on the HAMB of course), but not mouch more detail.
I'm no photoshop expert, but here's a go at it.
I've been reading a lot about Alex Xydias lately (what a story) and have been curious about his 1934 Ford Cabriolet called Jewel. There's agreat...
Thanks, that will be helpful when I get to the back brakes. For now I'm looking at using a disc brake conversion for the front. I know that...
Got it! Like you said, with some careful chiseling I was able to remove the cap, removed the pin and bolt and the spindle dropped right out....
It turns, but not without some effort. I'll get a big wrench on that dust cap to see if anything happens.
Oh, and that '50 of yours is gorgeous.
I've seen a diagram to that affect. So, how does the dust cap come off (before I just beat it to death)?
Ok, I know I'm missing something rally basic here, but I'm stuck. I'm trying to remove the drum brake from the front spindle of my 48 Ford F1....
Sweet, when is it this year?
I can't remember what the drivetrain was, but I'll check if I see the truck again.
I Haven't been to the Nations in Pigeon Forge yet. Is it...
This past winter was spent tearing everything down.
-Finish frame repairs
-Install new brakes...
Damn, doesn't get much lower than that!
Here's a few camera phone shots of it right side up. PM me your e-mail and I'll send you some more shots.
The previous owner modified the...

Here's a F1 I saw in Hixson, TN yesterday (near Chattanooga).
While not on fire, I was under the truck cutting bolts with the angle grinder when a glowing red chunk fell right down my shirt. Still have a...
And remember, today's the flathead's 80th birthday, so it's a sign, or something.
Alright! Looks like cake and ice cream in the garage tonight!
That's what I've been doing. I got your DVD last week and have probably watched it 3 times (which my wife just rolls her eyes at). You have me...
Welcome from Soddy Daisy, TN!
Right now i'm leaning toward a gas set-up, but so far everyone has primarily focused on sheet metal or body work. This would be my main focus,...
I saw it, too. Great show! I can't imagine going into these races knowing you had a very good shot at dying. Worth watching more than once.
Damn, I've been looking to buy one, but have a stack of old leafs in the corner. I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend.
Looking good DeWayne! You'll have to let me know when you drive it down this way. I'd love to see it.
Also, I've been meaning to pick your...
Welcome from Soddy Daisy.
What a tease. You know the rules, pictures or it didn't happen. :D
Oh, and I second Jimmy Hervatin.
This is some great stuff! Keep going!
Looking great! Glad to see another Soddy Daisy boy here. :D
