....if it were only a year old!! Bought it in July with 37,125 on it. It has 42,xxx on it now. Got it from the original owner's son (72 yrs old!). The old man (97) passed away in June and the kid didn't want dad's wagon. It's got a few dings but I'll forgive them.
Sold my '91 Silver Bullet Caprice wagon. It was gettin tired with 190,000 on it. The new owner needed a good family car that he could afford. I made that happen.
Big time into traditional hot rods. Right now I have a '50 Ford two door sedan (wife's) and a '27 Ford Tudor sedan. Both hot rods under construction.
Anyways, glad to be here. Bewber's been tellin' me bout this joint for a while so I figured I better hit it up.

And his wife gives great haircuts on short notice too - if you ever find yourself with an interview in the morning, or - you know - a court hearing, or whatever. Laughing

Hey Pete! Glad you finally made it over! Got any pics of the old sparkly roof? New one? Congrats on the new ride!

You should post up pics of some of the other stuff you've built, too. I've heard a lot about them!

Can you give me a hand swapping the tranny and/or rear end in my 'burb? Lol

Pat, I'm gonna hook ya up next time you're in town....I have an in with the local Coca Cola distributer. Haya! As for other cars, hot rod Fords are where it's at! I've had a T Bucket, Model A roadster pick up, '51 Ford, and am now working on a '50 Ford and a '27 T Sedan. Also had a rad '65 Cadillac. Slammed, flaked, driven.
A few lowered trucks, turbo Astro van in high school, Stroker small block S15 Jimmy, lowered '76 Merc, prolly others...

Oh yeah....I have a pretty good GM parts guy, too. Gets a pretty decent deal and seems to know these cars pretty well but is still learning!
