No kiddin', C9 ! Shame on you
So what's the story? Life happends ??
The Pileup Princess exists... sorta. Abomber30 started building the car. I thought it was RAD so I we discussed it being in the Pileup Logo. Obviously it never made the show and somewhere along the line, it got disasembled, at least it was the last time I was out there at Drew's. So take it up with Drew! I would like to see it finished myself.
#1,2, and 3 have to be my own cars... my '36 5 window (in time for the Roundup), my cabriolet and my '35 (roller by the Pileup).
My other top 10 in no particular order:
Azreal (hotrodchassis' 29 Essex)
KevinGrimlockLee Modified better faster stronger
Triumph Terror's RPU
Zenor's Model A
hell yea man... i completely forgot about Kevins essex!!!
i remember thinkin "solid car, nice lines. . .but...."
i had my doubts as to where he was going with it when i seen it at Drews place last spring when Kevin bought it, but the chop he did is SWEET
i aint seen pics of it for a while, Kevin!!! you got any progress pics ?
The ones on the site are old, and don't include the tail light treatment he did last summer, which is killer.
Life changes to a small extent, mainly a move to Arizona from California.
That was a pic of the 31 filled up with stuff prior to taking it to SoCal for storage at a friends house.
It took longer to find an AZ house than I thought so the 31 stayed in SoCal for 6 months and then I brought it back.
Took it from CA to Las Vegas and stored it at daughters house.
That was maybe 3-4 months overall in LV.
Now it's in AZ and the pic shows it in the new garage/shop.
I made some small progress on it, but lately I've been hiding from the cold weather in the house and rewriting a book and hanging out entirely too much on the Internet.
Mix that up with some Jeep trips in the dez doing some exploring and the garage time got scaled back.
Then I ended up making some parts for another guys project....
Anyway, the weather's been warming up here and except for the cold winds it hasn't been too bad outside.
Mid 60's or so most days.
I do want to get back to work on the 31, I'm really liking how it's turned out looks-wise.
More of an older hot rod feel - trad? - to it than the sorta street rod 32.
Even so, the 32 is a helluva lot of fun to drive and run around in.
Last time I had it out, it was 19 degrees F. when I left the house....
The pic of the 31 shows it with the 32 top sitting on it for a trial fit.
Next couple of projects on the 31 are welding up the seat base, finish making the windshield frame, pulling the body and plumbing up the brake and fuel lines then it's off to the engine building wars....
It isn't official without the Fabio cutout in the passenger seat. By the way, I plan on picking up a special accessory for the Lander this weekend...
Bass' hemi coupe and Skratch's Cherry Pie
I agree completely man! I am going to move mine this week. I planned on it over the weekend but blam it got cold and I got lazy!!!
How did the timing issue work out?
Dam C9...Looks like me and you took a trip on the same boat fer awhile
I'm trying Django:
Is that anything like pebbling a snatch??
Being completely self centered I'll say my '62 Rambler wagon and my '50 Packard.
Being uncentered, so to speak, I'll say 3WLarry's coupe.
That fucking rules.
Deathsdoorstep and dodgerodders.
And my two, but hey, shit happens.
boneshaker. northwest's magic carpet.
mine and anyone else on the HAMB that is building a car.
Two's easy. My Nailhead 28 A modified and FNG Martin's 331 Cad 29 5w Dodge. We gonna tear it up next summer!
I reckon I've been most impressed by Dodgerodder. Not just for his enginuity but moreso for his amazing S P E E D
I'd be happy to get either of my cars on the road, but I'll start with the HAMB Bomb since my shoebox is mothballed for the foreseeable future.
thanks for the princess picks and i didnt mean to confuse any one with my super secret spy picks or step on any toes
There are all the cool cars that we see updates of regularly that come to mind and have been mentioned already, Bass' Hemi Coupe, Deathsdoorstep, 3wLarry's super detailed 3 window ect ect.... And then there are the cars that I don't see regular updates of but have stuck in my mind since being posted like Detonators roadster pick-up.
Two many to choose, as long as we can all make some progress,,,, Oh yeah, I'll add my Model A Tudor because I want to be driving it!!
