The "Joys" of Hotrodding

So after much thought and consideration I knew I needed a clever name for this trend of posts Ive started... and The Joys of Hotrodding is where Im at. Seeing as how my last name IS Joy it only seems to fit.. That being said lets catch you up on where we are at!! since the last post the subframe is now one with the frame!! Its a huge step done with the restoration process. Next up is poking in that new powerplant!! that is the second half of what we plan to do to again make the ol chevy road worthy!

Looking really good. The subframe looks installed well. I have a '74 Nova clip in my '42 Chevy. it handles amazing and your's should too.

tried to start a journal and apparently i have one..or so it says.. tried to see my journal and it says i havent made one yet... so ANYWAY haha with the new motor in place, it was time to move to the feul! so the new tank was mocked up in place and a way of attaching it to the truck was on the drawing board. and you see the end result... plus i decided it would be fun to test my paint skills on my old welding helmet.. running feul lines and electrical is whats on the agenda for this weekend.
