I got the wheels removed from the '57 today. I checked the date codes on the tires... Would you believe 1997? They have well under 10k miles on them, and the other 3 look brand new. With the car being driven so little, and living indoors always, we never really gave them another thought. She'll be getting 4 new shoes soon, though.

Wow thats plenty!

At any point did he say "I got five on it" ? Hip-hop reference.

I was flipping through pics and found some in the 2005 folder you might get a enjoy off of. The Chevelle had a wing.





I had just got my first chrome wheels ever, the Cragars. Painted that 428 Bonne around then.



A 97-03 GP... you know, the ones with half a dozen engine fire recalls?

I never posted here the proof that it actually went to Steve's. LOL, it did and I am thankful he has agreed to help me see it move forward. The origional commitment was to make it run and get it in Epoxy but I think he is going to go ahead and ruff it in also.

I enjoy the fabrication of the panels but Steve is a far better body man than I am and a neck of a lot faster.

I got some more done on the hood, but mostly just figuring out what to do. I also got the drivers fender raised up a bit. One of the things I did at the Goodguys show was to look at hood and fender fit on these trucks and I saw for sure that the fender was too low. So I got that done, and will get back to the hood tomorrow night.

Not what I did Saturday, but progress just the same...





And Sunday, after cut and buff. Good thing it isn't street legal. Painter wants to go rip-snort with the 496..

Time does seem to just go by in a flash. That was me a month ago getting ready to move to many things so little time. Now I am at the other end. Time just drags waiting for my house to close. I have 8 more days to wait and it is driving me crazy. I can't do a damn thing till the house closes. I need to shop for appliances but can't have them delivered till after the house closes.

There are so many things to coordinate and it is going to be a challenge. Meanwhile I just set here watching the waves flow by. Now I know what Otis Redding meant by "Sittin on the dock of the bay,wasting my time all away".

Rip, that song was #1 on the R&B chart when I was born.

It was rainy yesterday and at the cruising hour I caught myself not going. Then the voice of Grape sounded in my head saying "HEY! Um, I do rain. Moisten my undercarriage!". Being a man, I was happy to oblige her on that. Got pretty foggy in there though, still ain't put a new blower switch on. But boy did she get wet, it was fun and raining pretty hard most of the time. Kinda took me back. Nice having that quarter window stay put, too. Simple pleasures.

If you know exactly what you need for appliances and you're not concerned that the closing won't happen, I would be shopping for and purchasing them now and have a set the delivery date for the day after closing. Around here, it can 2 WEEKS, or more, to get appliances delivered...

With RIP's luck lately, I'd strongly advise against that.

RIP, you didn't perhaps walk thru my garage when I weren't looking, did you?
