dang art cars!
Steve your Van looks kick ass!
Here is an updated shot of my 66 Chevy. Still a work in progress
your work is just amazing, I am floored by it. I can stare at your creations for hours, please share some in-progress pics.
Thanks, As does your Econoline P-up.
I finally got myself one, my kids already love it!
Found a 289 for it too!
You gettin' to it quick. Love it.
That is the ONLY chopped e100 that looks good that I've ever seen. Ever. I guess the drawback is you can't use it to haul much now though?
oh hell yes.....im liking what im seeing.
anybody got an idea what kinda rear bumper this is on this econo?
Where the 'nother one?
It's a six. Right?
gonna go look at a 63 today...hope it's as nice as he says it is
Looks awesome Joe. Baby steps man. They all add up.
The other one is on the other side! I can't photograph both sides at the same time. I ain't no Pablo Picasso!
Not a 6 either. '89 Lincoln 302/5.0L HO. 4 tips looked like "too much" if you can believe that. All 6 tips are "live, but realistically all the gasses will go through 1 pipe per side.
Here's the complicated driver's side. The weird bend is there to clear the clutch fork. Stupid headers dump straight into the clutch fork.
so much for the "peak"!
wow....lots of great work! so impressed. good job.
looked at a econoline pu today, its rough but i talked him down to $500, im on the wall about it because i wanted something closer to running.
Does anyone make front glass for these?
the motor is there but it looks pretty stripped.... argg.... what should i do
I say give it some time. I saw some trash for crazy money. I looked for a year and found mine around the corner from my house.
tuning up old irene
ive seen that at a wrecking yard in the back of a econoline pickup ... im gunna pick up both sets i saw them and didnt think anything of them until i saw that. you should message me and maybee we could figure it out
Tailgate alone is easily worth half that if its not rusty. I say go for it
You're going to spend the money getting it to running condition that would have bought you a driver, so why go through that step if you don't need to? It took me about 6 months to find a running one in ok shape for the price I wanted to pay, it's worth the wait.
Thats kinda what i figure, I have other projects plus customer cars, i dont need to add that much to my already full plate. my 34 is getting ignored enough already.
The guy who ownes AER rebuilders in Dallas has one of the pickups. He has a blown BB FORD in the bed, It is wicked looking and pulls the wheels for blocks.
I thin kis name is Mike Magrath? Or something like that. He'll have it at the Yellow Rose Classic in Fort Worth next weekend.
i want one... pretty bad...
we have located some build photos of pat's van. we will scan to digital and send when we get back in acouple of weeks. see ya! tinguy

I kinda have one, this is actually a Falcon Bus. I hadn't ever seen one until last year, so I had to have the thing. I actually have it for sell in the H.A.M.B classifieds. Got the original motor and running gear which includes a 9-inch 31 spline rear. She runs, but is a little weak. If your interested P.M. me or call for $1,400.
