    Yeah Jim. Mama likes her buns nice and toasty. Real toasty!!!!!

    These are the seat warmers. $20 bucks from eBay. Just slide them under the seat cover. Hot and ground wire and your done. Simple depending on your seats.

    Sweet thanks. I will be picking some of these up. We are just the opposite; I like the buns toasty and the wife never uses them. I have 2 OT cars with them. I turn hers on just to mess with her and every time she drives my car she shuts it off on me. I like to leave them on so the seats are warm when I get in (auto start) but no cold ass leather.:eek: It's almost to the point that two buddies doing practical jokes on each other. Kinda fun but annoying at the same time.

    Jim. If you're looking at seat warmers you need to make sure that you get the right size to fit your seat. we had to get the smallest ones they sell

    Good thing they go by seat size and not the size of my a$$. I probably wouldn't find one that big or maybe have to use 2.:D:D

    Jim
    All is good, Just put a new rear in the car. I Blew out the spider gears in the 7.5 doing dry burn outs and installed a 8.8 out of a 1998 Ford. I have some pictures I can post. I'm heading to Greer South Carolina Saturday for some Vintage drags then off to Frank's 4 finger party Saturday night, Should be a great time. Been busy, real busy. I even restored a 1978 VW wesy camper this summer. Got some pictures of that to. Im wanting to build a old school Bobber bike next.

    Something like this http://atlanta.craigslist.org/sat/mcy/4127619667.html

    So what you been doing? Im sure your Coupe is on the road by now.
    Carl

    That's a nice bike, Carl, make the deal! Yea, I got the coupe on the street, even won a trophy in a local car show. Took it to ATCO dragway in September for the Phila. Modifiers show and drags, and snapped an alternator bracket bolt off in the block. I limped home and I have just been staring at it the last month. Maybe this weekend I'll get to it.

    Well since Brad is back up and posting it got me fired up a bit. One of my favored things todo while out in the coupe is lay down a little rubber. A few weeks ago were were down in Griffin Ga helping out Dirty old man, AKA (DOM) kicking ass, kool old dirt racer dude. Well any way we went down to help out finish up a few things on his 32 Roadster. We got things finished up and spent the rest of the day ridding around. This was a big day for DOM as he has spent the last few years getting her done. So here are a few shots hanging out with the boys. It was like 70 degrees that day. Just a few days after the ice storm.
