Got a couple projects in the garage... (beware! Pics!)

well... My roomates and I have a couple projects in the garage. they aren't moving too fast (as girlfriends and school take up most of our time), but will get done, hopefully, before we move out of here. (I hope the bike is done in a few weekends).

Always see tons of '40 Fords but rarely, if ever, Chevys. Go for it!! Good Luck!

We are going to try and restore the car as original as possible... making a few changes (12 V system, and a new electronics to handle 12V... ignition, lights, etc).

I tried to talk them into custom hot-rodding it... but that isn't in the plan :-P

Too bad.

That car would be perfect for a retro-rod. (Rat rod as some call it.) It is cheap to do, and IMO a lot better than the big buck, billeted out trailer queens you always see.

Go to Car Kulture Deluxe for a huge gallery of resto-rods.
