The Jalopy Journal
I treat posting like a form of communication - which is exactly what it is. I do the same with a letter or e-mail as that's what you're supposed...
Hahaha - Love the ramshackle mix of all that mismatched shit but am especially turned off by the combination of an early, oversized front end and...
Great taste in cars - not so much in headgear...:D
Haha! Talk about big n' littles :D
I'd sell my real Henry '32 Tudor project right now for $13000 CASH but no one seems to want it...
Still very impressed - I think I actually prefer this type of build to a run-of-the-mill '32, A or T.
I've been looking for a set of these for about 20 years!!! First saw them on Dusty Rhodes FED in a vintage Hot Rod or Car Craft and have NEVER...
Love those Bearclaws (or Paws, either way) - they are one of my favorite vintage wheels - would love to find another pair of 16x13s.
What is the rod journal ID with the 4.3L V8 rods? Could the crank's rod journals be offset ground to decrease the stroke further (like with a...
Here's my take: if what you really want is a '40 then get one - either this one (if the trade is a good deal) or another, whether through trading...
Can't remember if we talked about fitments for the Williams Low Buck Tools Beadroller - here are specs on the dies and machine: 15/16" inside...
Somewhat unrelated but I guess they are drawing tools :)
I bought a complete set of ellipse templates when I was studying at the Art Center...
Love it - very cool 'Bird.
About 1/2 way there . . . :cool:
These were not made in huge numbers. The aluminum versions are 15x4.5 with the built in caliper mounts. The large vented Wilwood rotors are...
Here's a small pic. . .
They have recesses between the lug holes so you'd need to run those flat-style caps.
Like old Sam's rabbit dish - I like it!
Good friend of mine has Eldebrock and Hildebrand (wheels) constantly on the brain :)
I'm partial to proper english myself - can't stand the "no caps/no spaces/text-speak" crap that permeates the web.
However, I like to think...
Can you throw the fenders back on to see where it's "out"?
Part of it for me is the transition from the curve of the rear wheel arch to the...
If I recall correctly, these have 3 1/2" of backspacing on a 6" wheel width.
Any insight on the dies? They look like they'd make decent body beads . . .
There's a guy who sets up in Pomona that has a ton - couldn't say how many but it's got to be over 100 on display at any given time.
All 15x6, some 5 on 5", some 5 on 4 1/2". Some had the small slots near the center - I always liked the solid ones and, years ago, I made a...
So Kerry - did you ever stop to ask about it?
Hey guys, the roadster looks much better with an actual cowl! Glad to know it's going to get built instead of sitting in my garage collecting...
It's my last name . . .
Are these "real" or did someone add what looks like cast plates with the Turnpike Cruiser" logo on them?? Can't say I've seen them before so I...
Separate names with a comma.
