Today I didn't get a pic of my work project again. Ran out of time to screw it all together but finished driver front pan and toe board fab except for an inner toe board flange at the hump and drilling plug holes in the toe board. Dang that was a three-toed sentence!

Heres a contender for the Wall of Shame, from the next stall over... we don't question why, we just fix. But this is some thick mud right here, men. Might be 2".

I have an M20 that needs rebuilt on the shelf. I'm going to start scrounging for clutch linkage parts over the summer.

NOW, how much for the hemi ??? I've always wanted one for a '67-68 Cuda notchback.

Thanks...the "deal" remains to be seen.

The weather was fantastic....that's why I picked these particular two days to get the car.

As for the El Camino, I couldn't believe the mess in the smuggler's box.....oh gawd......absolutely fantastic. The deck panel is sealed in place with what, I have no idea, but whatever it is looks quite fantastic.

The only thing out of place with the smuggler's box was the shotgun shell which I promptly returned to the seller. Don't think crossing the border with that would have been a good plan.

Car needs a whack of minor issues fixed, just from pulling it off the trailer. Seems like a real rattle trap.

No time to investigate today....I'm beat ....now I know how Mitch feels.
The trip down is fun and exciting. The trip home is almost drudgery and lasts twice as long as the trip down. You'll sleep like you're dead tonight....and maybe tomorrow night too...

Glad to seeyou are home safe and sound. Hopefully an exhaust system is going to cure about half those rattles.

Keep us posted on how things shake out.

Actually, the trip back was better. More exciting driving 80 with a car and trailer than running bobtail. Especially, trying to get to the border patrol dudes before they knocked off for the day.

We are gonna be seeing a lot of updates on this thread very soon,.

I just opened the AC compressor box. It's not a Sanden as I was told. They couldn't even powder coat the mounting brackets. Truly unbelievable. I will be posting every negative thing I find on every car forum I visit.

And I sure hope the brackets don't bolt to the head because zero accessory holes.

So glad you pulled off the deal. Welcome back to having a cool ride. Heat gun and table knife maybe to open the stash box. Hacksaw blade if they used panel bond. You got double hump heads there or what? Tailpipes and body bumper kit eh. Let the mayhem begin.

Hey Pugsy if the hood is all rattly, you have purchased one of the few vehicles that would totally allow separating and reinstalling the hood skin. Some distant weekend.

Of course. Everybody wants one.

I always thought they were really cool. Of course, I would really like a powder blue '58 impala convertible to put it in.

You can still buy the brackets that bolt to the exaust manifold and intake corner bolt and water pump for the A/Cmm ,probably the way your PS pump is mounted.

do you have short water pump
