The Jalopy Journal
3 passes is racing. When (and if ) I ever get my car done I don't really expect to do any better. Someone has to be there for the faster guys to beat.
I have no problem with someone taking a swing........you never know. But once you are shot down drop it or raise your sites.
The garage the Pontiac is at has been busy. I don't like to go down and work when he is busy as then he doesn't get things done. LOL I am retiring...
My buddy put an aluminum radiator in his 56 Chevy. Looks and mounts like a factory radiator. Works perfectly fine.
Try here. Has most repair info somewhere.
They do a great job with their video coverage of their events. I took a couple for myself but you can't touch their video coverage.
That's me in the first pic. almost right in the middle of the middle section in a black shirt sitting next to a guy in a white shirt. Quite...
I bought a rusted heap, took the drive train out (along with shifter and linkage) and parted the rest out.
Then cut a hole in the floor.
That's like trying to walk on stilts let alone trying to run.
There isn't a magic answer here. The axle should be OK set up properly.
I sent Quain a message making sure the race was going to happen. He wrote back ensuring me it was and that if there was anything he could do to...
Running down the hot track at nearly 90 degrees? Man, I couldn't do it.
#5 That's it.
I got more than a fair share of Moonbeam but he put on a really good show. #4
Post #3. Yeah, I got multiples of Home Grown but I really enjoyed his build thread.
Post #2. I'm sorry if I didn't get a pic of all cars. First event and I was trying to take it all in and watch.
I hope I don't step on any toes. Those who take pics for resale put a lot of effort into their work. Anyway, I didn't take anything close up....
Just made my reservation. First SEGA race.
Looks good. Fits the car........I'm thinking though that it would be more work than a regular spray of cheap white tractor paint.
Chevy is used a lot and it's understandable as to why. Easy to find, parts are accessible and as cheap as anything you can use but it's always...
That's a cool story. Congrats.
Before. These had sat on a shelf for years.
Only took time, someone that really knew what they were doing but very...
So while my buddy is trying to finish up the Ford (that you can see in the one pic) I decided to trim the front fenders.
I always like to see updates here as we started our projects in the same year and both still slowly working away. LOL
Dang, you already have a cool T to build.
Right, steel wool will rust and fall apart.
Chip is obviously incredibly talented. He has taken the more commercial route and there really is no wrong answer here. He's made it so he can do...
The grill is in. When I bought this car it was wrecked in the front and the first front I found was a 55 which I used. The 56 had a whole lot of...
I can go to a large meet and not see that much good stuff.
I went back and forth with this also. I am never going to be able to run a series with the big dogs and a good number of the vintage events limit...
