The Jalopy Journal
Don't look down your nose at a young kid's Honda Civic or other import. It's what's affordable, familiar and plentiful as they're cutting their...
Muffler and tailpipe fell off of the car in front of me, no room to swerve or change lanes. Blowout: gashed the side wall of the tire. Had to...
I agree with corndog. I think you should buy cars that you will like to drive and will enjoy working on. It's always a gamble trying to make...
So many fine looking cars came out in 1957, but make mine a black Fairlane 2 dr. hardtop.
I've had rubber hoses cause calipers to drag, but unlikely, I think, that both would be bad. Pushrod length/pedal free play sounds like a good start.
Drive it whenever you can. It'll help you stay interested and keep your eye on the goal, even if it never gets completely finished.
Years ago, when lacquer was used for applying and burying flake, I was once told that going over the flake with a rolling pin helped lay 'em down,...
I always enjoy looking at a tasteful flowing flame job.
I agree, the profile of the Buick front end looks like it belongs more than the original Olds front end providing you can blend the lines below...
Whatever blows your hair back. Build your car the way you want it, not to please somebody else. I don't agree with all of the trends out there,...
I had a set shaved once, long time ago. Didn't come out very smooth, but looked ok from a distance and after scrubbing them a few times to clean...
It always feels good to save a cool old car!
Nice hardtop. I like the rear quarter window treatment/chrome door extensions and sleek roofline. Late 50's Fords are sharp.
I love those late 50's Fords.
Sleep on it. Good luck whatever you decide to do.
Cool. Something different.
Sorry to hear about your uncle. If it wasn't for my uncle Ken helping me out in my early days, I probably wouldn't have gotten very far in this...
You could create a design and custom paint your own classic coffin just the way you want it.
Just stumbled onto this today. Edsels are cool. Nice creative work. Keep the pics coming.
I'm always in the progress of cleaning, throwing junk out and organizing during and between projects. Just never seems to get done.
Rod and Custom but not crazy about it. I miss custom rodder.
Hmm. Sometimes it was just change for the sake of change, bits and pieces. Not much thought about the overall cohesive design.
Hard to make that first move tearing into such a sweet looking car, wasn't it?
Sorry to hear about your wife.
Nighthawk Black. Looks black until the sun hits it, then there's a hint of dark blue. Cool looking color
It's hard to make your passion or hobby your job. Have to work on jobs whether you feel like it or not meet deadlines, make other people happy,...
I love looking at these old haulers full of eye candy.
The flake sparkles nice on the dash. Go get yourself some cheap sunglasses.
Don't drink too much coffee before pinstriping. Sweet looking truck.
