The Jalopy Journal
Door bottoms, just like you did. Later cab corners. Everyone with these trucks needs the same parts. I'm just frustrated with repro parts that...
OHHH YEAAAAAHHHH! You're gonna love the throttle response from that mechanical injection and hate constantly tuning it. For your car though,...
Langy, what is vapour blasting?
Yeah, I did a google search for counterpart and came up with nothing related to trucks. Help please.
Who did you buy the door bottoms from and would you recommend them?
Wow, Dad had a walking foot sewing machine? Niiiiice. Now all you need is a chrome tank out back to be totally in house.
My Dad has that setup on his '57 Century Resorter. Yes, they are Carter YF side drafts. Yep, there is a special valley pan that allows the carbs...
Funny, except for the hood it looks like a Chevy now. That grille really sets off a GMC.
Thanks Johnny for posting an update. BTW, any respectable gearhead would desire that Sunnen hone.
Wow, tough choice. I guess you'll be making the drive between Vallejo and San Jose huh? :D
Are you bringing your "award winnah"? I'd really like to see your car in person.
Hey Crashhead, are stock muscle cars welcome or only hot rods? I've got a bud with a stock '67 'vette that would like to attend.
Are ya blending the bumper bolt heads into the bumper? Seems like a nice custom touch for a mild custom like yours.
I really like Impala...
Custom upholstery or stock?
Gawd this El Camino must have been rough when you got it.
I've enjoyed the past two years and plan to be there for number three.
That is a '56-'61 Corvette transmission mount bracket which fits Borg Warner T-10s.
Welcome to the world of constant flow injection. That was quite a change you made in two months. With the Hilborn setup, you will definitely be...
Quite a difference from last year's winter judging from the pics you posted last winter.
It's those loooooong cold winters guys. Both the Fleety and the roadster are lookin' good. I don't know why but I am enjoying the look of the...
That's a seriously clean engine compartment, especially for a car that's driven.
Trucks rust in Texas? And here I thought you fellas were not getting any rain.:D Neat looking project and I would guess that if you don't want...
Wow, that had to be a lot of work fixing that eyebrow. Are you going to try and save the grille as well?
38FLATTIE, as if you don't have enough to think about...how about this? Suppose carrying enough "air" is prohibitive to make a 3 mile run....
I am sure 56NoBraKes will appreciate that.
How many years do you have into this project so far?
Oh yeah, I remember now Dave. Thanks for the reminder.
I recognized the cow on the plate and the lettuce with perhaps ceasar dressing, but what are the yellow things? Is that some kind of egg and...
Are those large holes in the lower quarters going to be for exhaust outlets? I sure hope so because that would look really cool.
Jay, with regard to the clear over single stage comment. I have sprayed plenty of paints and I don't know why you couldn't spray a compatible...
