Default Any old hot rods hiding?

Just thought I would ask around to see if anyone was hiding any old hot rods/muscle cars in their garage? Dad and I are still working on my '68 Charger. This thing has been a work in progress for about 10 years, but it's getting close! Engine is about done, just need a few carb tweeks. Its in for interior/body/paint work right now.

No in between pics, but here's the before (for shock factor)


So... anyone hiding anything?

I had a 74' Camaro that I kept parked for for 22 years. I sold it to a fellow and his teen age kid for a father / son hot rod project in 2006. I see it now ocassionally on a trailer being towed to and from the drag strip with painted in headlights and tail lights. I think they compete in the Pro Gas class.

When I had it, it's last configuration was for road racing.

Regardless, I'm glad to see that it's still being raced.

We've got several. 65 Mustang with a blown 331 and a 6 speed, finished. 67 Mustang fastback with a 445 and a 5 speed, still in progress. 63 1/2 Falcon Sprint convertible that will soon be under way.

Not exactly a hot rod, but I'm working on an 85 Jeep J20 with an AMC 360 in it. When I'm done with it, it will probably be on 40's and will be wheeled on a regular basis.

AH!!! You can't use the hood of a '61 Vette as a table!!!

I say we should just go relieve him of his burden, Slo. It's obvious he is in need of some garage space. Let's help him out

actually, I think he's not too worried about the 'table'

there is a '53 and '57 waiting in the other garage. He who dies with the most toys wins...but in this case, the deck is slightly stacked in his favor

My brother has finished restoring a 1970 Dodge SuperBee. I'll get some pix next time I visit him. It's painted Plum Crazy purple and really turns heads. Whenever he parks it out front, someone will knock on his door and ask if it's for sale. I sure wish I still had my 70 Roadrunner 440 6 pack...

My 73 Comet. I took this picture the day I installed the sidepipes(functional).
Original 302/C4, added Mustang buckets, GT scoop, Cragars, sidepipes, B&M shifter etc.
Daily driver. I've installed a 71 front bumper since this was taken.

There should probably be a thread for stuff we had--and like an idiot--sold.

At one point in time I had 4 vehicles. (early 70's)

65 Mustang
57 Corvette
56 Chev Cameo pickup
63 Harley Panhead

All running, all in decent shape. and over a period of a couple of years I sold them all.

I'm going to go bang my head on a brick wall for a while now.
