The Jalopy Journal
I have over 100K miles on my blown Model A. The front oil cavity contains two beveled gears which are happiest in 90W. Fill the cavity to the...
You may be thinking you have seen this before and you are right. I drug this pile home back in 2014. Looks pretty sweet in the pic.
Nice score on the Hemi. It will fit right in there...
Ryan. I only spoke to your Dad a few times but was instantly a fan.
Hmm... might be time for a swap to more cubic inches....
Nice to see the little car getting some miles in the sunshine. One of the best HAMB builds ever.
What, no pictures???
You damm hot rodders!!!!!
That was the year I barfed an intake gasket and changed it in he pits. On the way back, I got 20 miles from home and she 2 pieced the crank shaft....
Nope, your '55 was faster than me but Jason Shafer won The Cup with a 10.62. As for me, I dug into my bag of drag racing excuses and found "I blew...
Here is mine at 4".
On second thought...go ahead and do 5 and a half. An extra inch and a half isn't going to hurt anything.
Yikes. 5 and a half is a bunch o a '34 especially on the street. Can I talk you into 4?
I forgot you ran points in that ol' girl. If you ever wanted to step up to a nice transistorized ignition someday, your secret would be safe with...
Throw it in there, check the total and initial timing and don’t lose a lot of sleep over it.
You had a hell of a week. Glad you made it home safe.

Jim is a bad ass.
If the guy who cut those holes in the lower cowl knew what those cars were gonna be worth some day, do you think he still would have done it?...
It's gonna be hard putting fenders on that little car, especially when you can drive it around and have fun just like it is.
I finished this one a few months ago.
It was kind of a production on the rear of the Merc. Jack the frame as high as possible, let the rear end drop to the length of the shock and let...
I have former cars scattered around the globe but the closest is my old Merc in Raleigh. She threatens to come back home every once in a while....
Find someone who knows what they are doing to take another inch out of that thing. Model As are pretty simple to chop, but if you have never done...
It is not the cam's fault. Describe your break in procedure, we might be able to spot something.
I did mine 12 years ago, so I don't remember much but I do remember the front part of the door pillar being a pain in the ass. I'm pretty sure I...
This is the only picture I have left from when I did the rails on my '39 but it doesn't help at all on the issue you are having. The only thing I...
WOW!! I knew there was a story but I never thought you would be able to put it all together. Thanks for sharing.
I'm leaving from S Carolina at 5am tomorrow. Gonna hit Kansas City to visit my Mom, then hammer down to Joplin Friday afternoon. Save me a beer...
