Any Car Builders out There?

I am completing a four year resto mod on my Father in laws first truck; a 1962 Ford F-100 Flare Side. Going to paint color and clear next week if the weather holds. Just sold my 2nd 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30. Next project will be a 1960 El Camino which was my first car.

Well, having restored my share of muscle cars and a few exotics in my time and currently working on a 71 GTO Judge, I guess I qualify. Whatís up?

I am working on DW's '57 Nomad. She wishes I would get it done. Meanwhile, my '55 Ford Gasser is just sitting. Other projects include: '50 Ford F1, was driving everyday up to 2-3 yrs ago. It's done up like Tow Mater from the movie CARS. And my '50 Ford 2dr Sedan. Drove it everyday from 1995 to about 2010. My full race 1967 Mini hasn't been fired up since 2001. It's got quite a history, originally a Magazine project and first raced in 1967. I raced it in England in '93 and '94 on almost every British Track and once on the Belgian Grand Prix Circuit. I'm giving my '57 Chevy 2dr HT to my sister. It runs and drives but needs some TLC. At least the DW's '08 Mustang Shelby GT doesn't need anything, has under 9k miles on it. And her '01 PT Cruiser only needs a couple of small things taken care of. It's done up '50s style. It's nice to have your DW interested in your hobbies, but then you don't have time to work on your stuff. I need to get that Nomad done. LOL.

I've always worked on my own cars. It started in 1970 when I wanted to go fast and didn't have money. I learned by making my Maverick fast. Changed nearly everything on it and it was fast. Always liked the older cars and have had more than I can count thru the yrs. But, I think I am running out of steam, have been trying to get the Nomad done for over 3 yrs.

If anyone is interested, the Mini is for sale. Google: Clive Trickey Race Mini and look at images. Also, '50 Ford Sedan is for sale, not running, but good body and lots of parts. '55 Ford Gasser could be for sale. If interested, message me. Ron

It's a disease that there is no known cure for. 39 Chevy 2dr sedan fuel injected Vette motor etc. Need to get it up and running again as it has been down for 2 years. Needed a muscle car, so I started building a 69 el camino SS 396, I took it into a body shop to have the quarters replaced, I made a mistake and said I'm in no hurry. 5 years later got it back with the quarters kind of mocked on. I won't do that again.

Mustang one. Been close to being done for...years. But isn't. That's primer, just wet because I take it out to rinse the dust off once a year or so.

Wife's "powder puff". Currently partially torn down for a full repaint. Hopefully work can resume when the weather warms up again. Those old wheels and tires are long gone and it will be sporting a GT front bumper when done. Originally a 2.3 5 speed car, now a 5.0 AOD. Kicking around putting a 5 speed back in it. I still have the clutch pedal setup.

Truck two. Turbo diesel and five speed transplanted. Late model front bumper on. Cabriolet front clip on deck (becasue I like round headlights) and also a matching molded style rear bumper. Pictured wheels long since discarded. This gets driven. A lot.

Mustang three. As purchased. Trying not to mess with it too much until some other stuff is finished. But has a couple thousand bucks in sheet metal, wiring harnesses, and engine, and other bits accruing for it.

Truck one. Bought with a blown up 5.0 engine. Picture is from just before I bough it. I pulled the 5.0 back out of my '67 Mustang, refit the EFI, and put it in this truck. Didn't like the power. Found a 5.8 and put that in instead. MUCH better. Tossed the 5.0 completely and put a 351W in the '67 Mustang and I like it better too. Put headers on the truck and it is currently in the shop getting lightly ported heads on it. Because it needed a head gasket and I can't help myself but hotrod everything. I'd love to repaint it but wife's Mustang will get repainted before I'm allowed to paint anything else. If I want to live. She says.

Wife's car is a non-interesting little Toyota we bought at a screaming deal but wrecked in the front. Fixed, she drives the heck out of it.
Grandkid hauler is a nine passenger Ford Expedition I bought with a burnt valve. Upon inspection of the engine damage I didn't feel like fooling with it and just put an entire engine in it. Our weekend car we used to tow a camper trailer with. It's been a good one. Doesn't really rate a picture though.
Bought an old Caravan for no good reason but it was giveaway cheap with a bad transmission. Fixed it for a grand total of $50 (seriously!) and drove it off and on for two years. Wife blew the transmission up again and I just can't quite let it go yet. But when I fix it again I guess I need to sell it. It's a minivan, no pictures.
And a Dodge Stratus I don't want to talk about. Should never have bought it. I really need to fix it and sell it. But if scrap metal prices go up enough I will be sorely tempted.

Wife asked me once if I had ever bought a car that didn't need to come home on the back of a wrecker. Well......
