Fingers crossed for you on cool new digs, Brian. I grew up in basements. Harder to sneak out of.

I was going to put a bbc in the back of mine. But the cost was to much for me to bear so it's getting the motor in the cab, but will be moved back some.. I was going to use a Toronado trans axle but they getting harder to find.. Plus I would have to cut it down for the pro street tires.. So I will be keeping it simple for now.. Not saying it will never happen but now's not the time..

For several years at Piegon Forge Street rod nationals, there is a 66 Corvair with a toronodo 455 and transaxle mid mounted he made a 2 piece fiberglass engine cover that fits really good inside, engine left stock but it is extremly fast

I met a guy at cruising the coast one year from Texas that was in a cool kustom Chevy Luv with a Blowen Hemi with a Toronado trans axles in the bed.. Very cool guy and the truck was very cool and well done..

I do have plan's to do a bubble top rear engine hot rod soon..

Finished cleaning the engine today. It will be next week before I can paint it though. I think one more wipe down with wax and grease remover ought to get it. That should make make 6 pr 8 times.

Slick got his door skin on and well its kind of a frying pan to fire scenario. New skin is "alright" (needs work) at fender and OK at rocker but has the same monster gap at top of quarter. Only its twice as wide now and needs help clear down to the lower body line almost. When I initially assessed that situation, I figured it was the quarter because it is shaped differently from the other at that place. He measured at the body line and the right quarter is a quarter shorter. Inch, that is. No pun intended but I'll take it. Looks like quarter surgery, not sure. But I know some of you are gap fans.










The red rustbucket Biscayne finally has the trunk area finished. I know only maybe a couple of you remember it. When I stare at it I start remembering things i fixed and I marvel at the painter (and the others) who work after me. One of our guys did inside the trunk. I enjoy looking at all of it so far and can't wait to seei done and in the sun.













Personally currently I am sneaking up on something presentable for 59 job front pans. Today I lopped the ugly off the pans and made a plain flat toe board. Figure I'll make a new front half for the trans tunnel using whats there as a pattern, and run a stepped, overlapped, plugged seam all the way straight across. It is approaching sturdy. Wish I could say the same, the weekend is a welcome sight.



Cool ex-co-worker dropped by in the Chevelle he used to rattle about, speaking of Chevelles. This one has a mess at seams where quarters were replaced but I don't care. Its blue, big block, and five speed. If the car were a lady I would ask her out on the spot, I love these. We may bodywork it at the shop eventually. Pardon the bodyman junk rides.



There. I always feel better after a big pic dump.

long overdue.

I worked on my 55 today and worked on a long overdue area. I had the cowl to floor supports were rotten and I found out that the support behind it was rotten as well. My toe boards as well as the trans hump is rotten and bent so I bought some parts to fix it with.

You will be alright. I promise, there is more than one perfect house.

Buying a home is one of the most nerve wracking things you will ever do other than deal with health issues.

I followed that deck lid very closely. You should be very proud of that save. Very cool indeed.

Thank ye It might have been better if I had done it like the Catalina lid. But seeing it all wiped down like this is another mission I can mentally check off as accomplished. That was a ton of intricate work but what I mostly remember is getting sick thinking that the green pellets in that lid were bondo curly Qs. T'was poison.
