`50 Olds almost done

13 July 2014 - 05:32 AM

This car is so insanely detailed and over the top it's really more art. Must be seen, and heard, in person. This is how it sounds through the mufflers. With the cut-outs open it sounds like a pro-stock…...


Charger went home

This was one of my first projects when I went to work for Pauls Rods & Resto's. It was a retired drag car that was totally roached-out. The harness was hanging out of the car and it hadn't run in 10 years. Aside from being wired and street legal (?) we installed a complete nitrous system and re-positioned the motor plate for correct pinion angles. This was a project that as we completed one set of requests, the customer would lengthen the list. I test drove it and didn't really get on it (dry-rotted 12" slicks are NOT very "stable") but it has power.

This got flat bedded in yesterday. The owner cranked it over and it locked-up. Pulled the plugs & coolant drained out of #5……  Engine is coming out. It's a stroker 383 w/ BDS 2X4 bbl., Jericho 5 spd., 4-link rear. Aside from the color (in my opinion…) the car is drop-dead gorgeous.

`46 Buick Fire Rig Race Car

22 June 2014 - 02:04 PM

While returning from grocery shopping this morning we spotted this parked in a restaurants parking lot in Floral Park, N.Y. It's a `46 Buick converted to a Fire Dept. competition vehicle. I've seen the big-block drag cars, but not a vintage stocker. Underneath it was all original.
