    Now I guess most of us have some time to kill and could use a little distraction from what´s going on and I figured a "Good Times" thread may help to put a few smiles on your faces... So I´ll make an ass out of myself and start with a few shots and stories...


    Me, singing and "sit-dancing" while driving somewhere, which is pretty usual for me, but it is pretty annoying for all my passengers . I was thrown out of our college choir because I just could not sing for sh*t, still can´t- I only joined because the most beautiful girls on college were in the choir. IMG_8358.JPG

    My friend Günter @djfordmanjack showing what he thinks of the 301 in my living room...He keeps punishing himself with Y-Blocks and flatheads , hahahahaha Party Weekend garage bash Mai 01 2015 086.jpg

    My friend Damir, who is pretty much a Chevy guy like me ( with a few Fords and Rockets in the mix too) trying to figure out what kind of hi perf Y-block he just found there... Party Weekend garage bash Mai 01 2015 087.jpg

    Picking up my ( Y-Block powered) 34 from the shipper. My shotgun rider Martin decided to open his first beer at 5:30 am but he still was good company for the 20 hrs of driving I did that day. This is him getting rid of empty cans and buying new ones... Party Weekend garage bash Mai 01 2015 012.jpg

    Usually once a year I have few friends in my backyard for a 3-4 day backyard party. Depends when they arrive and leave. The silliness becomes worse from day to day, a few years back Günter brought this magnetic sticker.... CSMN8779.jpg

    Typical morning in the back yard... HKTZ7149.jpg

    We also delevoped a technique to make a shovelhead produce fart sounds...patend pending. GZBY6990.jpg IMG_1589.JPG

    Working on my first '57, this one a Ford. Our family car until about 1970. This wagon took us to visit grandma, hauled building supplies, and took Pop's to work.

    Me in my SBC powered '57 Chevy and Martin in his 455 Olds powered Ford took our cars for a spin on the Blue Ridge Parkway, I don't remember the year, but it was a lot of fun.

    The OG! Me, Lee, Dave, and Martin hit a car show and a drive-in one spring day. The best bunch of guys and the best way to enjoy the hobby, DRIVING.

  5. Cool pics guys, definitely put a smile on my face. And I really need that.
     
  6. COOL thread idea. Hot Rods are only half of the fun. It's the friends ( hoodlums) you hang out with that makes it sooo much FUN. We're planning a little garage party here in May. But only if it's safe by then. We're praying this virus doesn't get bad. We'll use my Chilli for the fart sounds. We do corn hole, car movies, and even have the butt darts champion. ( don't ask).:rolleyes: Have fun and stay safe. Ron........ 20190831_095800.jpeg 20191103_094847.jpeg 20191103_100324.jpeg 20191102_062646.jpeg image0000001.jpeg

    I came directly from the office to help finish the car the monday before a race weekend. The dress pants I was willing to sacrifice but not my my best pair of brogues.

    Your dust mask isn't gonna save your lungs so I could care less about your socks and clothes but I suspect your not a full time painter either...I hope...

    You're young so you owe it to yourself and the ones you love to get a paint respirator as it's pretty nasty stuff in these new coatings...I want you to live a Full Life...​
