Cars

I like old ones. Just some happy snaps I have laying around. Anyone else?


My old '51 Ambulance. Former Navy car with 23K orig. miles.




331 Caddy V-8 with a rare 3-speed manual tranny. Was gonna yank the engine and tranny and build an A-bone hot rod, but never got around to it before selling the Ambulance to some guy who collects Minis.


Yanking the 455 out of my High School ride: '69 Cutlass. Killed me, but the body and frame were toast from being stored covered on my Mom's yard back in Mass for over a decade. Motor now makes 800hp and 900lb-ft on Nitrous. Sold the car for $300 to a young guy who promised to restore it.

Not mine. Original Power Pack 283 in a '58 Vette I ran across one day at the chassis dyno. Those Rochesters are worth a small fortune now.


My old '70 Renegade CJ-5 that didn't make it.


Not mine. Cool old Buick woody wagon I stumbled on in La Jolla


Wasted valve guides and no ring seal on one of my old Chevy 350s

My (well, formerly mine) old '71 CJ-6.


Vintage heater out of my '48 Willys p/u.


Another roached 350 Chev and the Olds 455 before.


And the Olds 455 after.

Love the cars. I'm a car nut too. Don't have much now (3 kids under 5, day care, blah blah blah). Old trucks is my thing to date. I've got a 70 chevy CST10 short bed factory bucket seat truck, had it for 7 years now. Also have a 72 c-10 long bed and a 70 GMC long bed. My daily driver work truck is a F-350 LB crew with a few mods putting down about 400 hp and mid 700 tq. And hate to admit it but am building a honda civic. was a comuter car for the wife for the past 8 years and a traveling sales car for me befor that. Going from a 1.5(78hp) to a 2.2(200hp).

I am an old truck nut too, I can't get enough of them. Here is a photo of the current project 56 Chevy 3100 which is nearly complete (Are they really ever done, I think not!!!). I am getting ready to start a 47 Chevy Truck.
