Thought I'd do something a little different this time....I'm building a '68 Chev swb 3/4 ton dually flatbed. Alcoa wheels with a set of radials, varnished oak on the deck with polished aluminum skid strips, varnished oak and mahogany fences, chromed fence latches, one polished aluminum pony beer keg on each side for fuel tanks.
I haven't decided whether to trick-out the 292 that's in it or go with a big-block and an AOD. Eventually it'll have air, PS, PB, full gauges and a nice but functional interior.
It most likely will be a dark,dark green and her name (I'm from the name-your-wheels era) will be "Fiona".

currently working on SELLING my 72 camaro ss. so not it.
also sandblasting my 41 scouts frame so it can go to the powder coater so that would be it if you count bikes but if finances keep going the way they are going might have to sell it. have a 73 camaro beater w/no engine that would be nice to hotrod, but frankly i would rather have my pontiac hopped up so i guess i can say the blue car to my left <-

next project

Fat fendered street rod. I like the looks of the 37 - 40 Pontiacs. Maybe even a 4 door sedan. I want a big fat heavy smooth ride, with attitude.

Well guys, after I finish my '46 we will be restoring a '51 Monarch that was chopped and shaved in the late '50's. It has '55 "300" tail lights lenses and '55 "300" rear upper quarters. Have all the history and pics of this car before and after the chop. Have a donor 50 merc floor and frame. Will be fitted with a 312 and four speed top loader tranny. Gonna be sweet when we bring life back to this piece of '50's hotrodding. At the same time we will be starting to build a '49 merc that designed and blueprinted by Ford engineering in '46-'47 but was never built. I'm gonna have to retire to finish the projects in the back of the shop. Cheers!!!!! Will post some pics of the '51 monarch.

Once my 53 Chevy is finished I'll have to take off a few months to work on the house and to build a nice carport or two. The first will be about 7m x 8m but the second I want to be 16m x 6m. The second will become my storage area for my other two projects as well as the workshop where I can work on them.

My next car project will be the 52 Chevy Deluxe I bought in September. It will however be a nice subtle old school look. No body mods or V8, just the 235 I6 with maybe some light mods and chrome, a custom colour, wide whites and white tuck 'n roll interior.

After that one I'll start more seriously on the GMC which will be much more of a long term project due to what I want/have to do and spend on it.

Once the GTO is done this summer, I'm starting on the shell that was once my uncles LS6 Chevelle, that he parted to pay for his wedding. It'll be a long road to semi-restoration. Good thing I got the goat to drive

My current project is a 80 Dodge 4X4. 87 Monte SS is next in line.

I've got a 59 Olds I'd like to fix up. Sometimes I'd like to sell it, but then I visit this guy's documentation of his 59's restoration and I get stoked. I haven't decided if that's good or bad.

Once there's some room in the driveway I'd like to find a 65 Riviera GS or a 68 Impala SS to fix up. '68 Caddy Eldorado would be nice too.

By the way, 46 fleetline, I really like your car. That's a gorgeous automobile.

I'm just finishing up an engine swap in one of my cars (I hate front wheel drive cars). Monday I start on one of my 59 Divco milk trucks. 318/727 and my Ramcharger chassis for donor. The other 59 Divco I want to find a dually chassis (chev) and a 351/AOD Ford drivetrain.

It is likely going to be another 2 years before the 'stang we are working on is done.

I have been drawn to the rat rods as of late. I can remember a lot of the George Barris models that I built as a kid. I can also remember cutting up a lot of different kits and making my own model rods.

I am not really thinking of a T bucket, rather something really nasty. I suppose that the weather is a little crappy (rainy) up here at times, so I'd probably say go with a chopped hard top of some sort. Engine wise, I don't know yet. There is a local guy who spcializes in the flat head fords. Those hold some attaction for me. Maybe that or a 392 or something for a power plant.

Any suggestions?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I am not sure that she qualifies as a hotrod, but I have wanted her since I was 14. I am 39 now and was finally able to bring her home last November.

As of now, its completely stock (but street legal) and so much fun to drive.


Someday (could be years), it will no longer be stock, if I have any say in the matter.
