66 Thunderbird

Found this car in 05, had been sitting in a lean to beside a barn for 7 1/2 years. Body was fairly straight. A kid bought it, took it home and tried to make a daily driver out of it. It had been sitting so long that it needed extensive mechanical work and upgrades which soon priced the kid right outa the car. All he could afford was a batter and he bought the wrong one. He sold it to me for $1700. I would give you the list of problems but I don't want to type for the next hour. We'll just say… Continue

Mystery Vette & Smokey and the Bandit!





Check out the ’63 Corvette Courtney has in her shop! The race heritage behind this beautiful Vette is clear, but the pedigree of the mystery car is unclear. Owner Eric Saloom always dreamed of having a ’63 Vette. The day he drove home in his new baby he found out his wife was expecting their first baby! The car could be 1 of 199 factory built ZO6 race cars... It could be 1 of 2 factory… Continue

So many questions. What's correct for my car?

Back in the late 60’s and early 70’s Americans built the muscle car. Boy those were the days. They don’t build them like that any more, and that’s a good thing. The big 3 would have been put out of business a log time ago. You go to a car show, check out some rides, talk to the guys about cars. Every body knows how it was done. One guy tells you this, and another tells you that. Who’s right, and where do you go to find out. Chances are both may be right depending on the car and where it was… Continue

Derby Truck

watched todays episode, boy did they miss a few key items to perform on a "derby" truck. Where we come from you can alter the front a arms by welding them to the frame, thus raising the front end which in turn keeps them out of your eng. Also with the hood, we take it off, fold the front edge over and under allowing it to bend over the front core support and add protection the the radiator and eng. this also allows the back edge of the hood to come just even with your headers allowing more heat… Continue

Cutting out a lot of rust. Hammering out new metal!

Cutting out a lot of rust. Hand making the replacement panels, I was impressed the first fender was undetectable on the front side. As you can see we do have some repair on the torque boxes in the front section. Hope we can get the frame together!

New hood and front inner fenders will be here Monday 2/16. Hope we can cut in new rear inner fenders this coming week, along with the floor pans, and replacement trunk floor.

She's coming… Continue

Cummins Excursion

This is my 2002 Ford Excursion. Some of the significant modifications include a six inch Pro Comp lift with 37" BFG Mud Terrain tires on Moto Metal wheels. I also had the V-10 removed and replaced with 12-valve Cummins. The swap included upgraged turbo and injectors, K&N air filter and 4" exhaust. My future upgrades include torque converter and transmission upgrades. The rear bumper was built by a local tire shop manager here in Tucson
