Hello, My friends call me Bodi. I'm from Mt. Vernon Washington. As of now I mostly own muscle era cars, with a few early 60s rigs. I've been into the car scene since before I could legally drive. I grew up around cars, my parents always owned some form of hot rod. I spent most of my child hood riding around in a 57 Chev 4 door wagon. I'm a fabricator, and enjoy flinging sparks. I've mostly used my welding for work, but, am really interested in getting more into the chassis fabrication, and body work side of things. Unfortunately there aren't many shops in my area to get a start at. I also spend my winters in the Phoenix area, and am hopeful to find some employment in the industry when I am down there this winter. Right now I am working on my 64 Impala SS 409 swap. It is an original matching numbers 327 300 powerpack car with a powerglide. The 327 is getting tired, so, it will get rebuilt, and parked on the shelf for now. In its' place is going a 64 409 with a 62 dual quad manifold. I'm working on finding some capatible heads at the moment. Also I am working on getting a 1964 Chev c10 short box fleetside on the road. It has a 292 i6, and a 4spd. It is a great truck from northern California with real clean sheetmetal. My plans are to make a solid runner/pushtruck for Bonneville. Finally I am helping my dad get his 1969 AMC AMX on the road. It was a barn find from California that still wears its' black plates, and had been sitting since 84. We've gone through the motor, trans, rear end, done all new brakes on it, and tons of other stuff. It should be a real handfull. It will be licensed here shortly, and then we can find all the little kinks in the system. Glad to be here, and learn as much as I can. I realize I don't own anything that strictly fits the format of this forum, but, I very much enjoy and respect the traditional hot rodding scene.
