Re: Starting on 67 L-30 RS deluxe convert barn find
I do have a few , always do and probably always will ...lol its my vise i guess.
i do get cars done tho .
the splitwindow vette is My KEEPER car and is done , a 340hp car and i drove it on the hotrod power tour the whole way in 2003.
the rest , just a fun way to keep busy ...
right now , a 66 Nova SS that i stretched the front end 10 inches , moved the rear up 10 inches , kind of a funnycar tribute to the old jungle jim early nova.
i built a front clip , have a straight axle under it and built for a nice BBC / turbo 400 that i can drive around on the street.
next is a 95 camaro Z28 convert that i cut the front n rear off and putting 69 camaro sheetmetal on...i saw them at a show and decided to build one...some love it , some dont but i just wanted a different driver than everyone around here...lol
then i have 3 69s here right now. a rare Butternut yellow with Yellow houndstooth thats a project but i have all the sheetmetal for it , a nice running 69 427 , muncie 4 speed and 12 bolt rear just waiting for it ...
i have a basic plain 69 that is also waiting but all the metal work is done , the frame , engine , trans , so on is done and all the parts bought n waiting ...
then , I have John Cavin , out of KY ...i have his 69 in the garage working on it for him.
i did all the metal work , full floor , firewall , full rear 1/4s , and painted the bottom and put the shell in etch primer ,
Sent it back home and John built a really healthy 408 , powdercoated everything in satin blk and assembled the car to the point it runs n moves on its own..Very good detail and a lot of work ,
Now , its back here so i can fit all the new body panels , finish body work , Paint and do some interior work before it goes back home to KY.
So yep , i have a few in there ..lol beats working for a living ...
