    Default Let's see your "Project" vehicle

    My pipe dream has always been to resto-mod an old muscle car/truck/toy. I know I'm not the only one out there, and would like to see your current or long term project you've been working on.

    So post so pictures of what you have, and some general info on the build!


    I'd start off, but I don't have anything. I wouldn't mind a late 40's early 50's Cab-over Engine truck. A mid 50's truck, a 70's ish high-boy type, and a boat load of various muscle cars.

    And Go.....

    Default Ol' Roid

    This has been mine since high school, learned how to drive in this car in Jr.high, now I'm 58, 2nd owner.
    This started as a plain-jane coupe, 6 banger auto. Never had any real damage but did suffer from South Dakota salt & rust.
    Lots of changes over the years, and I'm still tinkering with the damn thing, LED lights were the latest addition. Maybe SOMEDAY if I ever get back to a positive cash flow I can "finish" it before I die.
    Mustang II IFS, Blue Oval roller 302, (should have gone 351) Holley/Weiand, Modified engine compartmant, 4 speed toploader, (regret not going T-5) 9" rear, disk brakes all around. Stock sort-of interior.

    Not mine. Friend's neighbor. Car hauler project truck. Ford cabover with a Cummins 12V. Stupid HP he said, like 1000HP.

    He came over to use his sandblaster on the bed frame the day I was there using the shop to finish my DIY silencer.

    Most of my projects these days are of the two wheeled variety.

    Here is a shot of my wife's bike when I was lowering it for her.



    This belongs to my dad but will some day be mine. Not sure what I'd do with it as I really don't have room or time for it. Carbureted small block Chevy with a four speed manual and air conditioning.


    People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.

    Most things I own are projects.

    1973 Jeepster Commando, 304 V8, 3spd manual. Spent last fall welding up all the rust, monstalined interior, new seat upholstery, LED taillights.
    Next is the finish replacing rusted out rockers and then body work. The wife likes it, so we drive it around to some car shows and for milkshakes on weekends.

    Other project is 85 GMC, Crew 4x4. Need to do a lift kit and 12V cummins swap. Someday.

    Sometimes people trip and fall down stairs.
    Sometimes assholes push people down stairs.
    That doesn't mean "stairs are bad" nor does it make someone who pushes someone down the stairs any less of an asshole.

    That Commando is awesome! I have fond memories of riding in the back of my uncle's while antelope hunting as a child.

    This is my 61 Ford Thunderbird
    Hoping to finish the body work and paint this year and have it complete next year. Planning on bagging it and getting different wheel and tires but mainly just want to get it back on the road and enjoy it with my kids!
