Post been busy working....pics.....now more pics and specs

Sorry I haven't been around much, been busy as hell at work. We just finishd up 3 projects in the last week. A 56 F-100 complete resto, a 66 cobra -orginal- with a 429 SCJ, and this beauty. She is the ultimate street machine, built to cruise in comfort but able to kick some serious butt. I can vouch for the fact that it gets all kinds of sideways on 1-2 shift. I LOVE my job....that is all I have to say.





If you guys want I can take pics of our buildups and throw them here for the heck of it. We got some cool muscle and a few rods in the shop halfway through. We are working on 56 T-Bird with a 312 ford at the moment.

Well post the pics and lets see some more. Always great to see what others have and the good street stuff. 'Bout like a nudy mag,. Better to see the everyday women and not the models. BTW that is one sharp Firebird. Wish I had that sittin' in my garage.

OK specs

1968 firebird
350 built right from the bottom up
TH400 built, not sure on the converter but I know it is set up correctly
6-71 blower
dual 700 hollys -I think-
points
plyis tires
full interior
rollbar
B&M shifter w/ shift kit
10 bolt from 70 chevelle with 4.56 gears <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" />
drum brakes all around <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />
3 inch chop with custom glass
no side windowsno side mirrors
tach mounted on cowel
no hood or latches/pins/etc
12 gallon cell with cut switch
chrome spindles, stock length
the tires are from a 72 something or another, the car was built with the wouldn't the look cool princple. Hey it looks cool...we are body men and mechanics.....we have a rotisserie...why the hell not, better to spend money on the car then on beer and butts. A few times it was like strip club or work on the bird.....the bird always won. The shop is cool, there are only 5 of us there 2 mechanics and 1 body man to do the general stuff. The boss and I -apprentice- do the restos/rods/customs. Basicly you bring in a drawing of a car or an idea and some cash and we handle everything else in house. I will have some more pics of some other toys tom afternoon. We just finished restoring an old midget car in a 60's style. ford 90HP flathead, only 1 gear foward, no bar or floorboards, it don't even have a starter. You have to push it down the road until the magento gets enough juice -whatever the heck that means-. We are going to start on a 37 chevy wrecker in the next week or two, that should be an awesome project. It will be a street rod but we are going to use it as a functionl wrecker for the shop. Here are a few more pics
