I used to be a die hard Snap-On only buyer when I was in the auto repair business and still have a ton of their stuff. I...
That white Camino is killer! /\
Groucho owns the blue vette.
Welcome back. Let's see that 57 Ford!
Looked at their subscribe page. It's in latin or Nordic or something. Seriously. They're off to an inauspicious start.
How hard could it be? Lol
Wow, nice work to be able to fix that many holes and damage and then get it straight enough to paint black!
I think most of the things you listed would fly in my mind. The last mod, a Corvette suspension is just a bridge too far for me. Way too far. You...
I think this is Patty as well.
That's great. I appreciate the fact that the repair was completed with a "tall boy" can rather than just half assing it with a 12 ounce.:D
It's a funny thing all this numbers matching stuff. Back in the early 80's when the muscle cars were just cheap 10 or 15 year old beater used...
Hope to see them in stores. It sure seems like there's a vacuum to fill.
I know there was a thread here a few years ago with a fella going out west finding cars buried along dried river beds and off cliffs and such....
Unfortunately there are some ignorant people out there that will not acknowledge the seriousness of this until it's in their living room. Tell...
Great topic, lets see some pics.
"Paralyzation by Analyzation" Lol
I agree that old cars, even highly modified old cars, should be old cars as that's the charm if that makes any...
Terrible story. Maybe a wakeup call for some that feel this is no big deal. Stay safe everybody.
I like ice cream.
Is this really what we've deteriorated to? What machines are ok to use building a hot rod? I'm just gonna chalk it up to...
We used to call the regular 426 single 4 barrel cars a "Street Wedge". Never knew if there was a specific or correct term for them beyond that.
Still no whereabouts?
I'm late to the party Pat but I had to say the pickguard material you selected for the gauge surround was a masterstroke. Really nice looking.
Don't have any details on this one. (Meteor?) Thought it was odd and saved the image. Honestly I think I like the regular 57 Ford front end...
I went through the same thing with Rustoleum sprayed onto an old Dodge. It literally took several days before it hardened up.
Wasn't there some GM exec or somebody that said "Out of the original 20,000 1969 Z/28's that were built, only 100,000 remain. :D
What is/was it?
Like the other fellas said, fix the three speed linkage. I wouldn't spend a penny to convert the car to a powerglide. The only thing that swap...
Back when I was very young my Dad had a friend who didn't have kids. What he did have was a long list of fast cars. When I was 5 or 6 he had just...
Lots of great pics here but the bastards at photobucket destroyed 80% of it with their B.S.
Could always go with 3 AFB's like this guy. I talked to him at a show several years ago and he drives it all over the place.
