The Jalopy Journal
rode one for the first time 4 years ago, got the bug and started searching for them. Lots of fun to ride and mechanically easy to work on.
I haven't seen too many pictures of this car posted. It belongs to Tom Busch, the father of NASCAR drivers Kurt and Kyle.
I drove my 5W there and took pictures, but I think you posted the best coverage on the internet! Great job. Thanks for taking the time to post so...
The TTO's are a match but the new ones aren't offered in 5 on 5 1/2 in the narrow widths.
a tire and wheel swap really changes the personality of a car. here's my 5W last week before and after.
Chris, I'm glad you could use those tires, they look great on your car. I couldn't get them in the fenders on my 5W with the wheel offset I had....
looking forward to the next generation of Hop Up. I've read and re-read issues 1-10 many times. Marcy is right printed media is cool.

Great story,I'm hooked. Best of luck to you on this project!
outstanding work, great eye for detail. I also like the use of rivets on the frame. Very nice!
I'd hang on to it for awhile to see if you could score a 4 door donor. I agree there's a lot of spendy parts missing.
definitely go with the glass setting tape. I removed one that been set in urethane or silicone and it was a nightmare.
coming down with a buddy from Washington, hope the warm weather holds. I like this swap meet.
did you use the stock flathead radiator with the smallblock?
great stance and profile. you have captured the 60's street/strip look perfectly.
Talk about building something from nothing! You got some skills man. Great work.
Timeless classics. Amazing how a car tastefully built nearly 50 years ago can still look good today. Classic look never goes out of style.
My '67 chev pu has the original 283 and 3spd on the column. When I went to get new tires the young associate (late teens early twenties) ran out...
Beautiful car, great eye for detail, you have accomplished a lot in one year!
Can't believe how many 5 windows have been found up here in the last few years. Looking forward to more photos.
I don't remember when or where I first saw this picture, but I down loaded it a couple years ago, and have use it as my wallpaper on my laptop....
what a huge loss to the deuce community. Although we never met face to face, through his posts and messages I felt a bond with him as a '32 owner....
What era speaks to you? If you grew up in the 60's, those are the cars that you remember. I like the 60's street/strip style. Your car looks good...
