Wanted: 2nd Generation T-bird rear end damage

03 December 2013 - 02:48 AM

I'm looking for photos of 2nd gen T-birds that have been rear ended. I haven't been able to find much via internet searching. I'm interested in what happens to the trunk, brake lights, bumper, and fins due to a crash.


Thanks for any help you can give!

Wire Spoke Wheel Patterns

26 November 2013 - 07:17 AM

I'm interested in making wire wheels like the ones here. My question is, has anyone made patterns for these? What I'm looking for would be something like crochet/knitting pattern instructions:


Use a 24 spoke jig


Pattern 1: Wire should go from Pin 1 around hub to Pin 8, P3 to P10, P5 to P12, etc.

Pattern 2: Wire should go from Pin 2 around hub to Pin 23, P4 to P21, P6 to P19 etc.


Thanks for any help.






Just another '57 Chevy...with AWD.

Here's the first mock up of my Chevy 210 - I wanted something a bit different, so I decided to drop the 4.3L Vortec out of the GMC Syclone into it. To ease this transition, I grafted the front of the Syclone's frame onto the Chevy's - this would allow me to use the engine mount and front suspension from the Syclone. I had to build a new transmission support and cut some of the floor away to fit the transfer case. Both axles need a little adjusting (rear in and front out) and the front needs to be lowered a little. Thanks for looking!
