Well haven't worked on it in awhile. Shared a shop with couple of buddies. Just wasn't working out. So I moved over to my dad's house . He's 72 and not what he used to be. So I thought is good way to spend more time with him. We have couple projects going.

So now I am working on the brakes and steering.


Barn 72' w x 28' d


His 63' Nova SS with a built 250 6 cylinder


Jimmy's new spot


Rat Rod 38' Chevy
