Hot Rodding: anyone? Show me yours ill show u mine....
Ive been turning wrenches for over 30 years. How about you? Please post your projects and classics. Im interested.
My newest project is a 62 falcon. I am on spring break, you motherfkers, because the union says i get one.
Anyway, I have a schedule and goals set for this falcon so for the next few days ill be putting 12 hrs in per and posting progress.
Today, i worked, came home and just pulled the old six banger and tranny. For Day 2, my goal will be to install motor mounts, degrease engine compartment, apply rust paint and then topcoat it. Anyway......what do you have motherfkers? Better not be a challenger, cus ill kill u image.jpg
And this was my last project....a 67 mustang much lile pops 67 that took me home from boulevard hospital in jackson heights when i was born.
I built the motor, did bodywork, painted, aw hell i did everything nobody else touched her....
Anyway, for this falcon project, my goal is rat rodish in that i want it to be done fast n cheap. I am going to do 90 percent bodywork and then black her out with plasti dip for a cheap, flat paint job arounnd 100 bucks. Stay tuned
I like Falcons, Would like to see more before pictures if you feel like posting them. Definitely a healthy and productive way to spend a spring break.
Awww gunnails is right on. An invite to feed my ego. Stay tuned for the next 10 days. Either i will be hapy, or i will be smashing that clean windsheild in disgust. Lets see what happens....a 62 is a grey area vs. a 64 or 65 which is essentially a mustang. Those damned motor mounts better install right in the am or i will flip out
I have owned some nice vehicles but never a hot rod.
When I was in High School 76-80 we had some beauties in the student parking lot, Cuddah's, Chevelle's, Rivieras's, Camaro's, Chargers, Javalein's, Falcons, Impalas, Gto's, GTX, Chargers,and on and on. All had Cragar wheels and air shocks, lol. You could get them in great shape for a couple thousand dollars.
67, 396 Chevelle SS would be my car in a dream world kinda way.
Never rebuilt a car like that and likely never will (hat's off dude, she's beautiful) but my contribution... any DYIers that ever make it up around Pennobscot Bay in Maine owe it to themselves to stop in at the Liberty Tool Company. Liberty Tool is an ancient 3 story wood frame house in the middle of nowhere that been buying job lots of tools at estate sales since before the civil war. Many of the tools they sell you won't find anywhere else in the world because they literally don't exist anywhere else...like giant wrenches bent at an angle at a local forge to fit a machine at some old paper mill. This is the real ****...back before standardization and mass production when men actually made their own tools. A living museum if you will to real men. Awe inspiring stuff.
I'll add some pics below if you give me a sec...
We have quite a bit of tools around here (the hampur) that cannot be found anywhere else either.
Awww hell yea liberty... That ole bastid in those pics is probably my mentor. Kind of like the burden i have mentoring 32' the bitter hypocrite moderator on this site who hurls personal atracks despite the fact he is supposed to be above it and enforce sean deegans vision
