1968 is it too late?

1968 was just too cool. Hot wheels,The Doors -Waiting for the sun,Mongoose vs Snake,Schwinn 5speed  Camaro ! I know a 4 door post Impala is what the neighbor with the 14' Starcraft towed it to Lake Washington with. So maybe I can bend the rules in my head? Hell,if I had any money I'd just buy it.

My pal Charlie in Kansas sent me the pic's...and it's low miles...

1929 Essex 3 window coupe - done got framed !

Rich from IA had us build the foundation for his latest hot rod project.
A 1929 Essex 3 window coupe. It will sit down low.But not stupid low.
Hope to see progress pictures as the build continues.
His pal Jim is picking it up here at the Riley Automotive Industries East complex.

Good looking early car in stock form

Guessing Rich's ain't this nice.(yet)

the coolest uncool car

For some reason,and I've been trying to figure it out. I want a 1965 or 1966 4 door post Biscayne
(or Bel Air) It could be my inner lying urge to be Baretta ?
Or that I'm sick of AC cruise control and power steering?
I've looked at a couple,but just too rusty.Need a good grandma car. Six cylinder with three on the tree.
and a dent on the passenger quarter panel.
Don't want a Impala or a hardtop. If I find one,I'll let y'all know.
I don't own a suit,but I do like hats !

perfect,exactly what I want

nah,not me.I don't have any tats (looks too Jesse J )

local car, 454 4 speed,dog dish caps.
nope.Makes it a whole other animal

GM show car. MILF

way too nice,too cool,and wrong year

I like it.But too much money involved.
PERFECT ! well I'd switch it to small caps

Double Z'd frame coupe and a cage

Austin in Illinois has a nice coupe going together.
We did a base frame for him awhile back,and he's been working on it.
Nice clean tidy shop.And it show in the work he does.
Firestone dirt track's look good on a 1940 steel wheel

looks racey to me- I like it

my shop was this neat (once)

you can tell time and thinking went into the design

1929 Dodge 4 door swept frame FRAMES AHOY

Sweating meballs off
Did manage to take one pic of the custom frame before it left
Monte in Nebraska will be having a cool old car real soon

40 miles of a bad road -1932 roadster -

"I'm 40 miles of a bad road , A riverbed of potholes "
Maybe not 40 miles,but there was a few potholes getting it on the road.
Look for the Watkins duo cruising this around on the salt.
