Hemis do break...

This looks like it came out of lake superior, not a 1953 New Yorker
The spiders reallyliked the rocker train and oil pump



Hmmm.... something doesn't look right. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, uuuu... 7!! Where's big end #8??!! That's not good!

Embedded in the oil pan goo.

Back up block! $75, a 12-pack of beer and a new friend named Mike from Pheonix! This hobby rules!

TGIF!

Music to my ears this morning...

A tribute to my friend Tilly and his Trump! He's to blame for a big part of my "illness"!

I'll miss hearing about the adventures of the "Mad Motorsickle"!













Stuff...

F4u-1 Corsair!

TBF Avenger!

Wish I could get this on the left coast... Anyone got a hookup??


Oh yeah... I'm into bikes!!







My last Triumph. Miss it! Wish I could have finished up all the little things that were annoying me about it. On to the next one I guess...




I'll get to this '60 Triumph pre-unit someday. Thinking 40's style with some board track influence. Mostly blacked out with tall skinnys. All business!

Inspiration



Since we're on the subject of getting to know one another... here's some things that have inspired me over the years and more recently...
JAP/GN aero powered
I think this speaks for itself. Pure mechanical art!


Pinkees 29 RPU had details that influenced much of my project

What's more inspirational than seeing this when you're 5? Dad in '65. Needless to say, I'm an early Hemi freak now.

Allow myself to introduce... umm... myself.







Me.


















My latest 4-wheel concoction. It started life as a 1931 Ford Model A, Slant Window Deluxe Town Sedan.








I'm not big on 4-door hot rods, soooo....
