John long LOL, as long as I keep the shop fairly clean, I am good, but once knock off without picking up and putting away it goes to pot fast. It will finally get to where I am tripping over stuff....Then I will stop and clean it back up. It will stay good for a while and then the cycle repeats itself.

Took Barb's S type Jag to the dealer to get the a/c fixed. 3000,00 estimate! I don't think so!!!.......Brought the car home.

My garage walls are 12" thick at least of storage shelving, stuff against the walls, etc... Floor space is pretty much non existent.
If you will notice my photos are always taken with my Gran Sport or where my Gran Sport parks in the background. That doesn't happen by accident.

I read a great article in a Rod Action or the like magazine back in the seventies about that "first start" and it was so damn entertaining. It basically put into words how you forget all the busted knuckles and rusty bolts, they are gone forever the first time you start it up.

MARTINSR I removed the master cyl last night from the Falcon so we can bench bleed it. That was the first of my "five minutes" in the shop. The other five (or longer) was searching for the misplaced push rod for that master. I about went out of my mind searching for it but finally found it! WHOOO HOOOOO, I then went on my evening walk.

It's so funny how much I have available to me in the old parts world. Nick walked down the street literally 3 blocks from my home to Mustang specialty place and bought a bushing for that brake rod yesterday.

What's in it ?? Eagle rotating assembly, KB pistons, Mahle rings, comp cam, all stainless valves and topped off with an old school Torker II intake. Distributor is a stock look cast body Pertronix. Going for the "day 2" look under the hood with modern build technology. The wrist pin was relocated lower to raise the piston to the top of the block for proper quench without decking the block and removing the factory stampings. 492 cubic inches of torque...

Nice handling of the speaker situation. I forgot about that on those years How 'bout I call your blast-ready pic and raise you a Mustang fender-bender?


Roadster owner came in and scraped undercoat a couple afternoons in preparation for sandblasting. I have filler work finished on both doors now, decklid and one fender.

Remember the white Mustang adventure I recently had? Somebody backed into it and nuked the fender and extension. What a deal, eh? Jake had it tore down faster than I could raise the camera.

Floors, rockers, etc, are in the '34 now and it showed up in the grey room. Where if it ain't grey, it will be.

Since all I'm showing is what I didn't work on, you gotta click to see those.

Here are my today and yesterday stuffs-
