    Let's see what you're driving, what you're working on or for the real car guys...what you're restoring!! (bikes, cars, trucks anything!!)

    Here is one of my most recent projects, 85 Chevy C10 Pickup

    Original blue paint with a 305 and all blue interior

    Just got the seat back the interior is now all black/orange. New dash, door panels, paint, seat, gauges and more. Custom upholstery is beautiful!

    Just finished the left side body work yesterday gotta little more to do on the right side and she is ready for prep and paint! Getting painted Hugger orange!! Then its getting black rims, black powder coated bumpers, solid orange tonneau cover.

    Slowly getting there....

    It sold right away 2 years ago.

    Back in the old days when I had time I used to do 1 resto a year on average. Now I can not even finish mine.

    What can i say.. I like new cars.
    Nothing restored....but edited, yes

    just picked up a 2012 VW Tiguan, fully loaded. Blacked the Rims (plastidip)
    and Matte Black'd the hood, and part of the front bumper. Limo Tinted the Windows.

    This thing is a beast.. let me tell you.

    Used to take the bus, but it got too crowded and I found myself not getting off in time and having to walk for blocks after missing my stop, so I decided to take the commuter train and I can just jump when I need to. If this ever gets old, I might get an elephant or some other fuel efficient means.

    is that an actual Caterham, or a Locost? I'm looking at a Caterham for my mid-life crisis, but i have to get the money and stave off old age first :)

    I think I passed you (your car) on 25 the other week. I was heading South and you would have been North about 6/6:30 pm.

    This is mine, nothing special, but great for banging around in the bush.
    Gonna go full matte black soon, just to see how it looks.

    It only gets about 300 miles a year on it.

    71 340 RT

    416 Stroker (340 block)
    Super Street fighter trans w/ 2800 stall
    391 Sure Grip
    Slap Stick (pistol)
    3" 2 chamber FM

    With stock sized tires, no rear sway bar, drums, no power brakes.....

    Its scary to drive! ALL over the road with a bad tendency to leave the road sideways with little to no warning.

    Im planing a color change something in the next few years. 20 years ago when I painted it, plumb sounded cooler than it does now.

    Thanks.

    To be honest, with the small tires, low gears, big motor and lose converter, the car is too unpredictable. When I do the color change, the motor is coming out and a stock 340 w/11" converter is going in it. The motor/trans is going to be moved over into a 79 LiL Red Express. Believe it or not, a 79 Dodge truck handles much better than an old E body.. :Big Laugh

    Pic 3 my brothers 70 Hemi GTX under car cover and Dads 68 440 RT in shop.
