I got a car for me and the boy wrench on.

It is hilarious to drive and somehow a ton of fun to run around in.




Dats cool. Completely different than a P car, which is part of the fun. Takes up 2 914 spots though!

Here's my family cruiser. 1967 caddy. All blasted and powder coated suspension and steering, disc brake conversion, etc.

Finally installed new wheels on my bandsaw.
I didn't have to purchase anything new, all this stuff was just sitting around.

For the rear, I took some all thread rod and made some delrin bushings to go into the steel tubing. (Bushings not shown)

For the front I wanted the wheels to turn. Since the tool is lighter on that end the smaller casters are just fine.

I made some aluminum parts to allow the casters to bolt over the .75" square tube. I made a different type of delrin spacers to firmly locate the square tubing.

I’ve got three 914 projects awaiting. Had my fuel level gauge and tank sender checked by Hartmut at Palo Alto. Due to arrive back today. What great service Hartmut provides! Got to reinstall. Maybe a bad wire or ground? Next, install new front targa top seal from 914Rubber. They are a _itch to put on. Have to work up some patience. And finally, I got new longer wheel studs as I didn’t think the open nuts had enough thread showing. So, all the hubs will be coming off soon.

Putting up a cedar fence to block out the neighboring farmer's eyesore of a yard. Should have done this years ago.
Better late than never, eh?

I've been breaking in my new log splitter, then it's on to re-doing the woodpile for better air circulation.


That is a lot of firewood!

I burn a lot, if you look at the green area, that's how much I've burned this year, and I'm burning today.

Pretty sure I would have just welded the casters on the existing tube (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Awesome! Neighbors had one back in the late ‘70’s. Always enjoyed it when we got to ride in the car with the top down.

That fence looks great. I built a fence with my next door neighbor, had all tools yet we still ended up with a fence that is uneven and not straight.

I know, I know.
I put out a nice string with my stakes for each post a straight as an arrow.
Affect digging the holes and setting the posts in cement, I wasn't so straight anymore.
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/hissyfit.gif)
It's about as straight as a snake on speed I guess.
But it looks fine from our side which is all that really matters...and it will last a long, long time.

Thanks for all the atta-boys everyone.
Will keep my eyes pealed Oscar. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

The local fence company quoted me an eye popping price.
I did it for about 1/3 the price.
Took me a total of one week for 120' of 6' cedar.

The finishing touch was the stain/sealer that I applied in 2 coats.
Supposedly will last looking like this for 5-6 years, then another coat will be needed.

My nephew was in the hunt for some American Iron, so I helped him PPI this '64 T-Bird ...and it's in his ownership now. Built at the Wixom, Ohio plant, shipped to L.A. and lived its life in SoCal. 390 c.i. and just about everything has been kept up/ and works. It sat in a Condo parking structure covered in 1/4" of dust...but detailed out real nice.
He can now go cruising down the hood in his 64... in a big red Bird (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
