Very cool. I still have the wheels from my 1962 entry.
I used to have a couple of these back in the late '60s. A '62 f-85 convertible with a 3 speed manual trans, and then a'63 Jetfire with a 4 speed....
I still have the wheels from the soap box car I built in 1962. Not sure why I still have them. Anyway, I've been collecting parts and pieces to...
140 in a Dwarf car, about 160 on a GSXR 1100, 145 on an ST1100. 49 mph on a home made recumbent bicycle.
On the sign in the back ground, "Over There" was a song from 1917.
Oil consumption: .35 GALLONS/hour.
From a nearly 50 year old memory when I had a couple of 215s, the 2 barrel motor was 165 hp. The 4 barrel was 185 hp and the turbocharged Jetfire...
About 1965 in Erie Colorado. I watched a little Bridgestone 2 stroke 250 completely thrash a Triumph Bonneville.
This last picture with all the '57 Chevys got me to thinking. Somewhere someone must have traded in an old '32 Ford for a new Rambler.
That was a great way to end the summer. Great little town, incredible vibe.
I have a 270 GMC that's going in my '49 Gimmy 1/2 ton.
Very nice work there Fred. I'd love to see it sometime. Also interested in the licensing process here in Colorado as I'm working on a home made...

They seem to have zero caster.
Their 3" high speed electric cut off tool works pretty well for about $20.
I'm thinking that as the Boomer generation ages and we begin to deal with the reality of worn out knees, there might be some of us that would like...
I forgot to mention that Gene Winfield must be getting close to his 90's. He's built a few.
I turned 65 2 months ago. I currently have a cyclecar project that will be on the road by early summer. I still have a full time job and a part...
Do you have any details on these 2 orphans?
Didn't buy it I made it. A hood scoop for my '48 Crosley. (Really)
Check out www.metalmeet.com or www.allmetalshaping.com
Do a search at either site. Lots of information there.
Welcome from Fort Collins. Good luck with the new job.
In the early '60s, a stock AC Bristol aluminum bodied sports car. This is the body that Shelby used to create the AC Cobra. It was in the...
I have a '58 Century with a newer LeSaber drive train installed. Not sure how close the 58 is to a 55 but you're welcome to look at it if you want...
I think this one's sorta cool and it's for sale.
Believe it or not, Homer Depot carries a few different textures. I think they are about 2' square.
Greetings form Fort Collins. Got pictures?
