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
