The Jalopy Journal
Yup, what Stogy said. That coupe is so bitchin.
Solid lower quarters for my 61 Pontiac 2dr hardtop, especially the rear wheel openings.
Looks aftermarket to me. A company called Willpak makes some with that style in various sizes.
Really sorry to read this news. Sincere condolences to those affected. Butch's posts were always "must read" material for me. He will be missed.
Racer, I just noticed the dual quads. Neat car! And e1956v, good call on the new top color, that thing is beautiful.
Looking really good.
Yes, that is interesting. I love the original Washington Blue, but it seems that the modern versions sold are just not the same. Thanks for the tip.
Way to hang in there, Cavman. I'd say that fiver is lucky that you're able to do it as well. Nice work.
You could also try these guys in NC for the 097, their site says that they grind in house.
The 33 Ford truck cab in pic3 is where I would start.
The Cleavers were not totally Mopar people. I seem to recall an eisode where Wally damaged the family car, at that point, a 65 Riviera.
Thanks, Butch, that did rev me up a little. I'm one of those guys who still spends twice the money to make half the power by building 283's...
I love it. Beautiful job, ct.
She's a sweetie.
I agree, that is a moving story. Marty, so sorry for your loss. I am sure you will make him proud by the work you turn out on the cherished jig.
So the common gauge sizes for me are 2&1/16, 2&1/8, 2&5/8 and 3&3/8. Both Dewalt and Milwaukee make hole saw cups in all those sizes.
My favorite green hot rod
Great story and I love the coupe. Custom hood too, 20 louvers on the left, 25 on the right.
Yup, great coupe. Great movie clip also, but I'm astounded by how many folks showed up between 5:43 and 5:47, they must be quicker than me.
A pneumatic needle scaler, even a HF cheapie, is pretty good at that kind of removal.
Hey Lloyd, whaddaya mean you can't spray transformers? In recruit class they told me just to start with the nozzle on fog, close the pattern until...
If you want something else for a different look, I have seen a 34 truck stainless grille m[IMG]olding fitted to a 32 truck grille and I liked it.
What goes there is a second set of dovetails, just like the ones that are below the latches.
1960 Plymouth Fury, identical to Mom's old black on red 2dr hardtop that I drove to high school. All the Buck Rogers stuff, and the...
Just a thought here from personal experience. A friend had a 4150 Holley on a 390 Ford that kept turning the aftermarket air cleaner. We found...
I too have been following Matt since the get go. While my taste in hot rods is not the same as his, there is a lot of content that has encouraged...
Indy, I like your plan. Go for it.
Awesome find! Congrats.
