SHeesh- It has been so long I forgot I posted the "Hairy Cherry" in posy #64.
I just showed my wife this thread. Now she doesn't feel like the only wife suffering from her husband's sickness. She'd like to start a chapter for all the spouses of the club.
Just for the record, I'm down to my last 11 non running - gonna be cool as heck one day - yes it was a good deal - would you please shut up - cars.
Finally, a club I can call home.
Sold this, unfinished
to look like this, unfinished...
but then traded it for this...
that now looks like this...
all the with Ive had this in a shop an hour away that I work on every now and then...
and I still need to put the 2bbl intake on my daily driver...
I have a problem of getting things almost done then trading them off or selling them for something else.
Dude, cars like that are considered the good stuff around here.
I,m in here is my unfinished projects.
my friends tell me im chief of the NFA it stands for never finish anything lmao
Where's the tupperware, all I see is a bunch of rusty hulks.
JimSibley has all of you beat x10. the man easily has 50 cars in his backyard waiting to be hot rodded. but Count me in....i have an unfinished '32 5 window, a 31 roadster, a 30 coupe, a 70 chevy swb pickup, a 79 chevy swb pickup, a 31 tudor, and a 32 fordor.
Yea, Tupperware can collect dust and bust knuckles, anoy you and take all of your money just like a real car. I want to see some plastic baskets.
hey i have seen that chopped F-1 and that won't get you into the club! sorry dude but maybe next time!
I'm in.... I will have it moving on a budget next year no matter how it looks, and because the wife is watching the budget like a hawk.. Have to pull cars, sell parts, and scrap just to make extra dough for the motorsport stuff I am into. It will never be "finished". A finished car is not a hotrod in my dictionary.
Jim, Count me in! You don't need a photo, it's the '34 P/U you sent to Florida! B&B
I should get to be club president, I have 4 projects going and my son want's to start a new one......
My unfinished bomb - 1948 Chevy Fleetmaster Aerosedan
32 Chevy coupe,50 Chevy frame,261/6, McGurk Stromberg, split exhaust, 55 chevy rear.All this has piled up while trying to build the Hoodlum.
How could I have missed this club? I'm definitely in! Four unfinished piles o crap in my garage right now. Well, one is still in the remote office location (barn lot). My fresh SBC is still on the engine stand I bolted it to in 1989. That's depressing.
Check my albums for pics. The way OT project shows the most promise at the moment.
I shouldn't even have to prospect for this one. I'm also in!!
I'm in My project has been through two bodies. In the last 7 years. But considering I am only home half the year and buying a new house not to bad.
I'm in. This is exactly what it looked like two years ago. It looks the same today
There is a cure. It is called the 2 bolt rule. Everytime you go to the garage work on at least two bolts or do two things no matter how small. Coming from a long line of procrastonaters I fought my way back to the good life using this rule and have now finished several projects. It is amazing how much better it goes with this rule. Even when you are standing there saying to yourself I can do that anytime , it doesnt matter right now just pick up a tool and do it.
threw up a couple better pics of my unfinished pile to the tri-five chevy post...I'm sooo in this club, but am trying Dolmetsch's rule now...
NOTHING has changed on mine. My membership is hereby renewed for another year!
Mine definitely belongs here two years down...these odd ball projects are hard to find parts for!
Just traded these 30 roadster doors and cowl for this 32 truck project. In the meantime the other roadster is busy draining my wallet while I build the chassis for it.
HOLY SH*T that 40 is amazing, I envy people with that kind of skill and patience
A club I can be a member in, 58 chey fleetside scattered all over the place, can`t touch anything for a month due to an apendex that decided it needed to find a new home. at 67 i`ll go nuts watching the tube. MikeB
