Just joined, wanted to share my project and photo's as I go along

This picture is from about 5-6 years ago, My brother and I well mostly him, put pin-stripe flames on my car to distract people from the fact that the paint was peeling. I had purchased the car from a dealership back somewhere around 1993-95. I could tell that it had been in a ditch or had some other sort of mishap that had damaged the passenger side, but the "frame" was strait and other than the cross over pipe showing a dent on it there weren't any other signs left of the ordeal so… Continue

Project update

The left quarter panel is on. I got a pair of the full, OEM style quarters from Classic Body Designs.

My body guy says, "Some slight distortion around the side marker and some "persuading" at the rear kick-up by the decklid, but really a nice panel.

The lines are very crisp and line up with the door perfectly."…

Horsepower and Music

Hey guys and gals,

It's been a total blessed blast to co-host and produce the Horsepower show -- now in its 13th year! As the "Senior Member" of the Powerblock, I've seen a lot of great things happen in our Tech Center over the years. And, it keeps gettin' better.

I've received several inquiries about the song, "Gearheads", we used on one of our shows recently. It's from a CD with the same name (Gearheads), and you can go to my website to hear song samples… Continue

The Body is going on!! well only to build the wiring and start the engine

Today was a mile stone I guess. I dropped the cab back over the frame and bolted it on to check the alignment and clearance on the firewall. I have a minor issue with the emergency brake cable but I figured this would be a problem just looking at it. The driver’s side cylinder head hits on the firewall so some minor reshaping is needed. I will have to modify the gas pedal as well as it currently resides in the bump which is hitting on the motor.

As you can see in the picture I have… Continue

My First Car, the Journey of the Jury has begun

After months of meticulously combing through car ads online and on paper, I happened upon a chance find. A delapidated looking 1969 Pontiac Lemans, only an hour from my house. It had a strange nose, unconventional to my eyes, which weas looking for Darts, Novas, Impalas and Camaros. But something stopped me from closing the page. Something about the car made me gather my savings and buy it.

I purchased the car for only 1500 dollars. It's brakes had failed, and was pulling a vacuum… Continue

78 Ford F250

I have a 78 Ford F250 with 35/12.5 tires. It has power steering, but the steering box seems to wear out quickly. I was wondering if there were any after market parts that were of a better quality.

finally the 2010 Camaro

Finally the 2010 Camaro is here. Last Thursday I was out picking up some parts for my Chevelle when I saw brand new silver 10 Camaro. My first car was a 1984 Camaro that I bought at the age of 14 for a measly $400 which at the time seemed like a huge sum of money. Three years later at the age of 17 I came across the deal of a life time when I purchased a 1969 Camaro. At the young age of 17 I had the car that every Camaro enthusiast dreams of, the iconic 69 Camaro. It had a built 350 and the… Continue

Building up an 1984 Toyota SR5 Pickup - Yes it will be V8 powered and built to take on the Canadian Winter!

Ok...Time to get everyone up to speed. I am two thirds of the way through what has turned into a complete rebuild of my old trusty 84 Toyota pickup.

For those in the south....this truck is a 25 year veteran of the Canadian winter....Its really "holly" but was in one piece when I started 2 years ago. I've owned it for 7 years and did replace most of the body pannels and fixed the typical frame issues when I first bought it. Since then It's taken a beating...Moslty hauling building… Continue
