Yeah, I've got one from when I was a kid hid in the garage. Me and my seven year old started working on it earlier this year. Oh and in the background you can barely see my 95 Ford Lightning #43 of 695 red ones.

It's been just about too hot to work on it here lately tho. Heat index was 106 here today.

Default Yeahhh cars in garage

I have always had a flirtation with cars. Bought my first one with money I earned working for a landscaper. Cost me $40, a 1941 Chev Coupe. Dad raised a fuss cause I didn't ask him first. But as I told him it was my money. (beside the fact that I was not old enough to get a drivers license. (15yrs)
I have alway had a soft spot in my hear for convertables. And have had 4 English sport cars(mostly Austin Healys) Three Ford convertables. One of which I still have. Right now I have 5 classics and three of them are running and driven. I am right now putting a new top on the 65 Ford Galaxie 500. Then I go back to the 68 Barracuda to see if I can solve it's electical problems and get it on the street. The last one I have to work on is a 1971 Lancia cafe racer. It is going to be a bear, because it was one of 2000 made. So parts for it will be hard to non-existant. Not that I am going to show it or anything, it will go on the Aucton block as soon as it is finished. It belonged to my son and he was working on it when he was murdered. He had a For Sale sign on it so it gets sold and his two kids get the money in their trust fund. I also have his 1975 Harley Sportster with extended forks and big fat tire on the back. It stays for his little brother. We are working on it now.

LOL. I've been helping a young lady a bit with her Willys pickup. She also has a coup, a sedan, and a stake bed truck!

We started from scratch with a rolling chassis & body. We dropped the engine & transmission in the frame recently. Things have slowed down since he started experiencing money issues however.

I've had a bunch of hot rods. Most recently I'm working on a 73 chevy short box stepside 2wd. Just about have it down to the frame but my garage isn't insulated so the woodstove doesn't make much headway when it is below 10 dgrees. Winter time wrenching is a slow process until I get my garage insulated.....would happen faster but I always seem to spend the money on toys instead.

My "Old" hotrod was a 64 Chevelle Malibu 300. 2 Dr post, built in the KC plant.

It was a factory 283 powerglide car. I got it with a 4 bolt 350, headers to sidepipes. 0-60 first gear, 60-120 second gear then that was all. Got there pretty quick. Faster than most fox body mustangs.

Lost the trans, and on the way home from replacing it, lost the oil pump and locked it up.

It got sold.



Now my hotrod is my 99 Camaro z. M6, 4.10, ls7. Clutch, ls6 intake, Hooker super comp long tubes, ORY, borla adjustable cat back. Cats have been deleted, smog/air removed. Futral fm-fms14 high lift Cam, double springs, titanium keepers, redline moved to 6800.
380/352 at the wheels.

I had one of those for about 10 years. Mine was gutted, pretty much a race car on the street. 6 point roll cage, stout big block, tunnel ram with 2 4-barrels, nash 5 speed tranny with straight cut gears, dana 60 rear.
Got about 4mpg......6 if I was rreeaaally nice to it.
