Popping on all Four – Finally! – 1931 Model A Coupe
Popping on all Four – Finally! – 1931 Model A Coupe

Finally, after the initial dilemma of getting a busted engine out of a Pick n Pull that prompted me to port the head and do a bunch of other goofy crap that always delays these “hurry up and slam together a heap” kind of projects I was able to get the little four banger screwed together. Static time it and with a little bit of go juice she runs….. then dies. I go through everything again, thinking maybe I missed something, all the carb and timing voodoo stuff....

1956 Chevy 210 – Updates and First Test Drive

Been a while since I posted any updates on this one… Over a year to be precise. Last update on this hoopty rig was May 2013. Been a busy year for me.

After helping my Bro-in-Law Jimbo with his 1969 Chevy C-10 truck I knew the rockers are notorious for disappearing into the elements, as are the floorpans and cab corners (the last two were not an issue of Jimmy’s truck) but this truck had none of those problems. Just a crap ton of surface rust and a few rust spots... 

Project Leftovers: 1931 Ford Model A Coupe
Project Leftovers:  1931 Ford Model A Coupe

So it all started with me rounding up all my leftovers and random junk I’d collected over the years and whipping up a temporary frame for my 1930 Ford Model A Coupe project to sit on in my sideyard while building other crap. It was pretty basic, a stock Model A frame, a Mor-Drop 1932-1936 Ford axle which had recieved a crude but heavy drop (5.75 inches!), a pair of 1932 spindles, leftover brakes, leftover springs, a quicky split wishbone hung on Speedway brackets, 1949/1950...
