    I think I found another greenbriar for sale. It was dark and about 45 mph.....I'll look for the cragars though.

    I am going to put together the Rambler 196 OHV motor I have been collecting parts for all winter. If all goes well should be driving the Rambler by Sunday.
  10. Saturday I turn gooey liquids and fabric made of glass into the back half of a T tub, do a little horse trading for some engines, fix the brakes on my boat trailer, maybe go see DV8's newest acquisitions and see if he has a beer I can borrow. But first. have to get my schoolwork done, hence the 1:00 am post.

    No thrash. Going to the Hoosier 100 Friday (please no rain), Little 500 Saturday and 500 Sunday. Recovery on Monday.
  14. Need to finish workbench in the shop and continue running wire out there, no wife or kids around this weekend should get a lot done.

    Going to try and get the motor back in the kids 54 Chevy if all goes well. He is ambitious and I have a cooler full of beer so we should be good.

    Gonna try & finish moving 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound shop

    Pressure wash the motor & frame, in preparation to pull & re-seal the motor in the shortbed.
    If the springs show, i'll be setting them up in the 56. Possible late bbq sunday night.

    Monday is the dead animal flesh roastathon in Bluffdale, followed by the trip to Mt Olivet monday 'bout 6

    A tip of the hat, and a minute or three of silence to my Pop, My cousin Al, and all of those that made the American Dream a little easier for me

    working on the property trying to get it ready for my wedding in October.

    I will take some time out to attend Chris 50s bbq on Sunday.

    If I fly there solo I might break out the hot rod and take it for a spin...

    like FatHack said... everyone have fun and stay safe!:D

    Been putting off progress on the chevy for this reason or that, but I'm off early today and gonna start blasting the body, for me, putting the body together is the biggest challenge. I guess that's why I have been putting it off. no more excuses though

    Hey Trent, sounds like fun. I dusted off the Trek MB the other day and think I am going to start commuting with it. Gotta change out the presta valves for schrader so I can air up with the compressor.
    Is it bad when you get winded pumping up your tires? LOL

    Car related stuff would be cleaning up the T ( not done since Dewey ) and grinding some more of the bracket scabs off my narrowed '57 Olds rear housing.
  26. You need to be all over that my young friend. Take pics and put together a tech for the folks who are thinking impaired.;)
  27. I have to work on my non HAMB friendly 67 gto. stupid late sixties cars....
