So my house has nothing in it...but my office has a few things... damaged parts from a race car, parking meter, a real wood steering wheel from the 1930's, a wood spoked wheel, old blow torch, real old horn, car models, truck models, grille from a Jag, Chevy shop clock, and a P-51 mustang ceiling fan.

Soon to be added are some Ford dealership model cars from the late 50s and early 60's. My wife grandfather worked at a dealership and kept a few of them. Also I just got the front air dam from a race car that didn't fit the car so I have to paint it and mount it on the wall somewhere.

If you have anything to add just send it my way....I'm always looking for stuff.

Oh yeah I will be adding the bench seat from my 55 Chevy truck as soon as I get to it.

Pup you need to post some pics of the engines in the house.

look out the window into the shop and you can make out my cab of my 55 truck.

KIm, we need to have words.

1.) Greasewhores DO NOT VACUUM!!! They use a 3 horse leaf blower.
2.) Greasewhores DO NOT DUST!!!!! See #1

Question..... Why do anything inside the house? Youre SUPPOSED to be in the garage young lady!

I had a house full of monte carlo parts until I got rid of it last fall. The interior was in the back bedroom (seats, door panels, steering column, guages, AC system) and most of the front end parts were in the second bedroom closet.

Now I am down to a sway bar in the living room corner (need to install that!) and whatever is in the garage. I have a set of autometer guages in my bedroom in a box.

Nothing else in the house as far as car parts. :thumbup:

A couple of sets of SBC heads & some GM roller lifter stuff & a Ford roller cam in the living room, a couple of Chevy cams in the front bedroom, used to be a freshly rebuilt VW 40hp in the living room, but it got relegated to the store room when I moved.

In my bedroom, there is an old Ford external voltage regulator screwed to the wall, IDK why I did it, but it's there it came off my Falcon. other than that, just got a hubcap hanging on the wall.

Nothing really off the wall but polished up a crankshaft out of a Bronco motor and carried it home in my backpack from high school a few years ago lol. Funny as hell setting it down and everyone would hear a massive clunk and just stare like I had a bomb or something of that nature in my backpack. :D Thinking about turning it into some sort of lamp related thing sometime, but for now it's just purely for looks spawning up from a japanese wooden stand. Looks pretty good. Still not sure what to do with the 2 pistons and the camshaft I also took home. :mwink:

Not in the house, but in the garage, I've started a wall of shame/pain.
Right now, it has a door skin off of my uncles race car when I "Nudged" into another car, a shock that the shaft is bent, A 5 piece camshaft from an international truck, 3 pistons from a CAT 3306 Diesel, A turbo from a CAT 3306 that is windowed, A melted Holley 750 that didn't survive a "small" engine fire, A NoS banner,Drivers side fender that WAS on my Chevelle that looks like it was used for target practice for a BB gun, My 80 El Camino's rear end cover that has a picture window in it, Old hand tools that were my great grandfathers, and a collection of empty Pepsi cans,an empty Southern Comfort bottle, and 3 empty Jaegermeister bottles. All bring back GREAT memories! :D
