GM had it all planned out in 69

Wonder how many of these were made?


Took in another Rescue today

This happens every so often, I get a call from a person complaining about work being done -or not, etc. sometimes I can help them with just advice, sometimes I say “get it out of there” -your in good hands now Travis



In the “office” flipping through old Mags

As I sit here reading cool old car mags that seem to just show up here, I come across all sorts of cool old stuff -this came from a June 1965 copy of Hot Rod -I’d totally drive this



Dave’s 35 3 Window

Some progress on the sedan turned coupe, had to make some artistic liberties with the sides of the roof where it meets the door, as I want to keep to super cool way the 35 door windows open -more pics soon…






Dave’s is now a 3 window

I had the shop to myself today, so I tuned in the 80’s station, got all jacked up on coffee and planned out where the cuts would happen then went to work. Nice thing about this chop is there is extra metal in the roof so no filler pieces are required. Just a ton of welding to do, then start mocking up the trunk lid location.









Dave’s 35 -A 3 Window Wanna Be

If you can’t find a 3 window you build one… all the curves are there, we just need to relocate them and might as well chop it while we’re at it, 5″ out 8″ remain. I’m jealous how this car has come together so easy, a part from here, a part from there -Boom, a complete driveline; I think sometimes cars want to get back on the road.

George’s Truck

It’s starting to take shape, not to much more to go before we come to the crossroad -put the wiring, liquids, etc in it for a test drive or rip it apart, sandblast and paint.

Awesome cars that I’ve come across

As I browse around checking stuff out, cars, trucks, tanks, etc get me all jacked up and inspired to create something like it -then I think about how many projects I already have, so I just right click and copy the pic into a folder called “one day”


Still some cool old Flatty’s out there, the 59B is slated for my 39 Mercury, But I’m torn on the V8-60 -this is the coolest engine I’ve had in a while, it must have came from a vintage hydroplane, looking at old pics they seem the same with all the same speed equipment and mods -I wanted to use the 60 in a roadster pickup, but I think it should go back into a vintage Hydroplane…

Bruce’s T is Gone…

Jobs done, now he has a car that he can put his own character into -all the hard parts and large items are located -I refer to this style of built as a 75%’er, for me this kind of build works best and the customer gets to be involved. This is the second car I’ve built for Bruce but he’s not done yet, when picking this one up he dropped off another…
