    Get my 39 Dodge pickup on the road. Get some upgrades done on the coupe. Enjoy my first year of retirement! Looks like a full year to me! Gene

    I want to finish my T Bucket next year. This will be my swan song, so I'm taking care to get her the way I want.

    My 13yo Daughter and I are just starting on this. Made my heart proud she wanted to fix up my old daily for her first car. 20181202_165854.jpeg

    Next year I want to drive the 61 Belair more. I want to go to some of the big car events with her and enjoy putting in some big miles behind the wheel. I have some small jobs that need doing to her, but none of them will keep her off the road for too long. No big projects planned but you never know what’s around the corner IMG_0343.JPG

  10. Updating the coupe to a 12 point cage, and some floor work. I still want a fairly nice interior, working on some ideas for that. This project is underway . Have other work to do on her as well. Hopefully she will be ready for Drag Week 2019, as well as the 2019 season. We shall see.;)

  13. We are making our first trip to the Lone Star Roundup in April. Hoping to get my '58 (daily driver/work truck) interior pretty much done and some long awaited paint on it as well by the end of the summer.

    Been wanting to build a rat rod truck for some time...

    If in 2018 I pissed off a HAMBER , asked some stupid questions, picked on some Chevy guy, replied with some wise crack remark, or anything else.

    In the new year 2019

    I DON'T EXPECT IT TO BE ANY DIFFERENT, IF ANYTHING IT MIGHT BE A BIT WORSE.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

    Continue to tell my wife and kids I love them because you never know when your number is up.And keep going as hard as I can, I have always been told a body in motion tends to stay in motion and a body at rest tends to stay at rest. I am only in my forty's and have abused myself more than I should have as we all did in our twenties, you guys in your sixties and seventies that are still at it, are my biggest fans I hope to be still in love with the hobby and going strong when I'm seventy. Merry Christmas to all and I hope you have a great New Year.

    Going back to the circle track with a Ford engine, to pick on some Chevies. I hope! It’s been 39 years since I have messed with circle cars, a lot has changed!

    I realized last January that I would never live long enough to finish all of my projects so I basically took the year off to work on Bucket List stuff. I rode my motorcycle solo from Houston to Montreal taking the scenic route most of the way. I stopped and revisited a lot of places and people that I had not seen in way to long. I rode the Smokey Mountain Parkway and the Tail of the Dragon, fun rides. New England and upstate New York were good rides too but the roads are crap. It was almost 6K miles and took 5 weeks but I got it checked off the list.
    When I got home I had rotator cuff surgery and it took the rest of the year to finally get mobility back, the surgeon said I was crazy for even taking the trip with the bad shoulder.
    This year I can get out in the shop and back to work on the '40 Chevy and '83 Spirit.

    I've just started my "big clean" so I can get re-start some stuff. I have a 3 1/2 car garage with one car in it, ans two shops...lotta junk. So...without making a NYR, I'm busy making space to put stuff in to work on out of the weather.

    With any luck, I'll be working on my projects by Spring.

    I hope to get my mid engine Corvair on the road and do some miles. I also hope to at least get my roadster pickup painted and partially assembled

  27. Believe it or not they are Mercs from the firewall back,only difference is the rear lights on the merc are horizontal and the Lincoln’s are round. That and a few trim pieces aren’t the same.

    I am going to click my heels 3 x and someone will appear and buy the 27 T and all my parts. Then I will go have a cold beer and sweep out all the nooks and crannies and maybe find a couple of missing carb parts that rolled into the cobwebs.

    Several months into retirement, and am way too busy. 2019 plans include more naps, less shows, camping trips with the econoline, more naps, less heavy-ass shop work, more walks, and maybe try to squeeze in an extra snooze or two...
