  1. 52 ply pics

    Dartgame I inherited this car... my dads dad bought it brand new in 52 for $495. I was even given a copy of the original title.... I hope DMV lets me keep it.. I keep asking dad if there are any 52 license plates still floating around.. Idaho will let you have a vintage plate restored and with paying the proper fee register and use it..

    Well ive got to move the 51 2ton chev truck thats parked in front of it dead 1st. Then we will see what happens, dads shop is a lil under 1/2 mile from where she is currently and its all dirt/sand road to the shop.. I have wondered about trying to move/drag it while there is still some ice and mud over the road... ill see what the end of the week brings one weather report says rain one says snow....

  6. New Year Resolutions

    I understand completely... I don't know why but the wife's mustang is becoming a job. This builds character??? I guess grouchy, scar ridden & deaf all count as character.. I'll make it, we all have to remember in order to take the journey we have to take the first step and keep taking steps. Some days the step is getting on here and rekindling the excitment of doing what we all do with 50+ year old Iron.

    the body is in decent shape. there is some rust in the panel below the trunk lid... But the interior is gone. When i got down there the other day the drivers window was down about 3 inches good news is i got it rolled back up. The back drivers door was open about 2 inches and the pass front door was open 1 click... i did get all of em closed but it was pretty damp inside... im betting i find the floorboards in need of patching... I remember as a kid being able to open the drivers door and climb in.... that was before the sagebrush got so tall.. The good news is the original keys are in the ignition and the switch did turn. I wonder if those old bias ply tube tires will hold air long enough to get it 1/2 mile to dads shop??

    Ok guys im hoping for an early spring so i can go get her off the hill were she has been for over 40 years and out of the sagebrush and weeds! But i did manage to get to her and get some pics. Time wasn't on my side tho as you can see a storm was coming so i only got a few....
  10. New Year Resolutions

    Ive got way too many projects.. Like P.A. i too am working on a house remodel that seems to be a never ending process.. A wife nagging at me to work on her car. A v-8 that needs the last touches before i put it in the 57. And a new MOPAR project. I'm hoping to keep working on the house (sheetrock, insulation, plumbing etc etc.) until spring gets here. Then we are going to go in the garage/shop and have a major cleaning session so i can get back to working on some of these car projects. Id like to put a drain in front of the garage and pour a new approach. Id also like to get the plymouth moved to a better location to work on it. Then get the engine out,torn down and if deemed worthy taken to the machinist.... wow all this and still raise 2 kids and keep a full time job..
  11. Building a Garage...Input Appreciated

    I took 1 corner in mine and made a welding /grinding area for smaller removable parts and sheeted the walls and ceiling with tin and then put one of those freight curtians, you know the plastics ones that hang down in strips, on a rail so i can move it. it helps control the sparks and debris... also helps on the fire control. ALSO FIRE EXTINGUISHERS AND I MEAN MORE THEN 1!!! I say in floor heat and make the doors wide... 10 is nice

  14. Cheap 218 in Idaho

    Knuckle she is already wondering just how nuts we are for even thinking about doing this car.... she would be much happier if i was working on her mustang.. She doesnt understand, sometimes things come to a standstill and sometimes you have to back off, re think and re evaluate.. her mustang runs and Im just not in the mood right now to do the interior... any ways remember ford is a 4 letter F word... anyways back to the original question.... can a hydrive be made into a standard with out a bunch of problems???
  15. Cheap 218 in Idaho

    Ok correct me if im wrong.. (dont worry the wife does it all the time) cant you take the fluid drive bell housing and flywheel off and put the standard stuff on and make it all work??? that engine is about 700 miles round trip for me..... I wonder if the wife is up for a road trip
