Beater ’56 – May Update – 1956 Chevy 210 two door sedan

So it’s been a while so I figured I’d post a couple pictures and update y’all about my beater ’56 Chevy project! When I scored the tunnel ram for $60 the “dump in a running engine and tranny” plan snowballed into “gee, let’s port the heads, install a lumpy cam, headers, and other fun bits”. I should be firing it up and breaking in the cam real soon, just waiting to wrap up a few little details,... [Read More...]

At the Trainyard – 1967 Plymouth Valiant Coupe

Just a few update snapshots of the Valiant, still haven’t sold it yet! Runs great, been driving it all over town. Slant six still knocks out decent economy, although I can’t measure it because the gas gauge is broken!  Read More →

1974 Plymouth Gold Duster – My second car – Photos from the Past!

My folks found this set of pictures of my second Duster, a 1974 Plymouth Gold Duster originally equipped with a 318 two barrel, 904 automatic, 2.45 geared 8 1/4 rearend, and a SNAKE SKIN VINYL TOP!! Oh yeah, super swingin’ 70′s baby!! I made many great memories in this car. With a 2.45 geared rear end the top end was amazing, I buried the 120 MPH speedometer a lot more than my parents would have cared to know. The two barrel top end... [Read More...]

January 2013 Turlock Swapmeet

Remember the first time you touched a boob? That’s the feeling I get whenever the January Turlock swapmeet rolls around and this year was no different. About a week beforehand I walked my sideyard and garage and listed everything I didn’t want on Craigslist and netted a wallet full of cash to spend in the annual Modesto Area Model A’s world famous swap meet. Armed with his little red wagon Panel Pete was on the hunt for V8-60... [Read More...]

Better Late than Never! – Billetproof 2012 Car Show – Sep 29, 2012

I was awake before dawn and the cool fall morning air was crisp and sharpened the edges of your senses. The exhaust was burbling away on the jalopy roadster as the engine warmed up and the promise of an exciting day that filled me with excitement. This morning I was meeting up in Livermore on Vasco Road to caravan out to the show. Matto ‘Double Trucker’ Jamison showed up driving his 1939 Ford truck while his Econoline was being piloted... [Read More...]

1956 Chevy 210 – December 2012 Update

So I scored this sweet ’56 Chevy project, it needed everything, but I’m so much more motivated to work on it than the Ford F-100 I traded for it. I had a 350 my Pop gave me that came out of his ’57 Chevy, a World Class T-5 transmission, and a scattershield. Within days I had them all screwed together and Dan helped me drop them into the car to check the fit. Seeing as this car originally came with a V8 it fit as expected. A... [Read More...]

Steering Box surprise! – 1956 Chevy 210

The steering box I got with 1956 Chevy had been cut off a few inches out of the box and a tilt steering column was in the car. Not wanting to use a tilt column I found a replacement box and column out of a 1957 Chevy and cleaned it up. While cleaning it up I notieed the adjuster bolt was missing so I grabbed the one off the box in the car. I bolted everything back together but for some reason I felt like I better inspect the inside of the box. So... [Read More...]
