So sweet. I'm lucky as well. My neighbor builds everything from lifted trucks to drag cars to street cars to golf carts

Is the car on the left rear a vick? I have always had a soft spot for the victoria sedans, and the 49,50,and 51 mercs. Them and the 56 ford pickup, along with the 64 galaxy 500 were some of the best lookin iorn (imho) to roll out of a Ford dealerships.

Jake,
That body is all fiberglass no steel but it looks like a Vicky to me.I'll check Tomorrow and get back to you.
My first ride was a '49 F1 P/U and then a '56 so I guess you can say I got a Blue Oval in my DNA. First On Race Day.

I can park half of my car (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citroen_C1) under the hood of that Mercury…
:roflmao:
(But I can drive from NY to LA with $100 of gas!)
Anyway it's a pleasure to see someone taking care of those old cars: after all, they are a slice of history. A nice slice.

It's been a while since I took some pictures of my friends shop. This one realy caught my eye. She is a Linclac. The front is a 1947 lincoln and the back is a 1953 Cadillac with a Continental spare. Power comes from a Olds Rocket 88 motor. Pictures to follow.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A new years update. First a '37 ford with a vett motor. And a '67 Chevy SS 396. The SS is in for a front end upgrade and the '37 coupe for some master cylinder work. I'll get better pictures when we get them in the shop.Not to rub it in to my northern friends but it's sunny and in the low 70°s here.

My friend Brian outgrew his shop so he moved down the road a piece. He's got twice the square footage as his old shop and a lift. Sweeet no more crawling on the floor.
Heres a few pictures of current projects in the shop.

All 1953 Corvettes were WHITE with a red interior, all had Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmissions mated to 150 HP, six cylinder engines with three carburetors and dual exhaust. This is the rarest Corvette. Of the 300 built, 255 are accounted for today.
