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... 

1956 Chevy 210 – Updates and First Test Drive

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. Wrapping up a divorce, raising a lil dude, build crap and other crazy shit takes a bite out of your time… I tossed in a rear window I scored in a trade for a spare gas tank! I also became one of the few individuals whom have...

Rusty McGee the 1971 Chevy

Rusty McGee the 1971 Chevy

The newest addition to the Fleet o’ Beaters is this 1971 Chevy Cheyenne 4×4. Despite the rust be-speckled exterior its actually amazingly rust free. 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... 

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... 

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

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... 

At the Trainyard – 1967 Plymouth Valiant Coupe

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!

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... 

January 2013 Turlock Swapmeet

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...
