    Yes it's at the shop Brett. It's in the messiest corner of the shop where Ron piles all of his precious junk! You will have to look close to see it though.

    Wow, it really has. That's crazy how time flies. If I were to guess without looking I would have thought less than a year.

    Man, get on this thing! :D
     

  3. Thanks for the reminder. Jerk.















    :D

  5. Actually I just moved it out today. I have an '84 Buick Regal coming in tonight. I plan on a 10" lift with 32" wheels and woofers as seats!


    Boy I can't wait!

    Well the 10" lift should basically be the same one you put in your '61 Buick right? From Street Freaks to Boxes and Bubbles you're fresh to def!

    In all seriousness we need to talk to Dustin about his infatuation with 90's era caprice wagons. We were at Jalopyrama and that homo couldn't stop talking about them.
     
  7. Intervention time!!!


    He's got to get out of Rockwell or Rocwool. However they say it down here!

  10. ...or tars and winderrs.


    I'm done, I'm heading ovr' yonder!

  11. That's funny!


    Hey aren't you the guy that had that really cool, brown Dodge panel truck that moved to NC like a year ago or something??? You said that you would come and hang with us.

    Maybe I'm thinking of someone else:D

    Only difference is mounting the seat far back in the car instead of just laying it way down, huh.
     


  15. Pediphyle:eek:








    ...Boy that went south quickly:D (WTF is wrong with me??)


    Get to work and quit bothering me.

  16. Ssssshh! Maybe...maybe not...can't really divulge that info as I am in a WITLESS PROTECTION PROGRAM. Plus a little bird told me that in order to hang with you guys I need to get my permit to carry a concealed weapon...
    I headed east in April and the panel truck headed to New Zealand...still breaks my heart! Riviera didn't make the trip either...the 57 did though
     

  17. You've got more adjustability with it laying down plus you work on your 6 pack abs!

    Of course that thing is in the shop, it has been there so long it has sunken into the concrete.
     
  21. Just wanted to let those who are interested know that I have some time now to get back on and finish this car. Tomorrow I start back and will post progress pics as I go.

    First thing to take care of is setting in the front axle. I have a few mounts to build so hopefully by the end of tomorrow I'll have a roller for the first time in a long time.

    You'll have to bring a leaf blower to blow all the shop dust and cobwebs off it.
     

  25. That's actually a great idea!

    yawn...you mean to tell me this car is coming out of hibernation again? Finally?

    Just giving you a hard time...this car is going to be really rad once it is complete. Please for the love of God and all holy DONUTS, get this car done! Im excited to see it as a roller much less a fire breathing 401 powered DONK...lol

    I was just thinking about this build the other day, and wondering if it was still in the works. Glad to see your back at it, keep us posted.

    Glad you put some pics up, there's been a lot of talkin'. That is going to look awesome. Love to see it on all four wheels. Transverse spring is pretty crazy looking on that car.
