Bryan59EC Only need to locate a bed floor for the 59 ElCamino after a body off. It has a GenVI 454ho and a tremic TKO 5-spd & all the comforts inside. have less than 400 miles on it now.
Next project is a 66 ElCamino. A beautiful unmolested car. Probably gonna go with a sbc and another TKO. (powerglide gotta go)
Wife says I can't go as far with this car as I did the 59---also gotta do some work on the house before I can start stocking up for this build
I personally like totally stock LOOKING cars (can you say sleeper??)
My little boy wants a pick-up and I found a real nice 65 chev short wide c-10 that I intend on starting soon--gonna have a bunch of go fast stuff in it, but will ultimately be powered by a little v6 untill he moves from the house or pays his own insurance. He is ten now so I have some time to get this finished.

Then again, it would also be a good car for a little V8, be it Ford or (cringing) SBC.
Rambler made a good V8 as well, if one can be located.

I think I bought a 69' Rambler off of Ebay, the auction hasn't ended, but I really don't know what to do with it, I thought about using a Mercedes diesel in it. In something like a Rambler American, it should be able to get economey car gas mileage. I really don't know if the Rambler wagon has a drivetrain in it or no, I'm pretty sure it dosn't...but it would be interesting to have the Diesel in there.

Good for cruise-ins and if I install a knee-knocker AC, I could use it as my everyday driver and parts chaser. Next option: Corvair, could be used as my driver or if it's something special, show and go. Next option: 50s to early 60s orphan econobox, Rambler, Stupidbaker, etc. again, for a driver. Next possibility: T or A for restoration, limited cruise-ins and local touring. Most likely: 68-72 F250 2WD with FE, build a real stud daily driver, parts chasing, towing bike trailer, etc. I'm going to look at a '71 F250 and a Corvair side-ramp pickup this afternoon.

jcclark My next project car is going to be a "ricer",
probably a Honda Civic. I'm going to cover it with graphics from
all the different colors I have left over from my collision repairs.
I'll base it and clear it with SPI products and run a gallery on it.
It'll be so wild that some "kid" will just have to have it ($$$$)
after I drive it for a while just for advertisement.
It'll be stock mechanically.
(All I want to pass is the gas stations)

My next one

Of course I have yet finish the rod but I did bring home a Jeep cherokee..keep it mostly stock drive train as it will be a driver but looking at making it a sedan delivery with the back windows filled and a small lift..some decent paint and a good cleaning should do it..

rj57 My next project will either be my very first car or the last car I bought?


I tore my very first acar apart in 1986-87 expecting to do a body off the frame build on the car. Got fired from my 8.5 year job cause I screwed my hand up at work. So in thanks for years of service they fired me.

Took me over 10 years to find steady work again. I wanted a job just couldn't find one that lasted longer then 6 months or paid more then $3 per hour.

When I bought my newest project I knew I didn't need another toy. But the price was killer. And the body shop that had the car bought it to me for free. They paid the towing bill.

Guy I bought the car from said it was HIS very first car he got at age 15 in 1975. FRom the looks of things he only drove it one year then it sat for almost 30 years.

Now it's out in my garage.
