We picked up a couple of Fairlanes for Ellen to work with......





You can see Ellen behind the cars doing what we do best. Drinking Beer. :lol:





The maroon car has a sludged up 289 "special" in it. The white car has a 68 302 that somebody cobbled an EFI intake onto and made it run. Sorta. :? :lol:

The white car is a Flintstone mobile, and the maroon car is solid as a rock from what I can see. We should be able to make one nice driver out of the two, and the leftovers would make a good tubbed out race car.

I'm tossing around the idea of a nice baby boomer cruiser with EFI, AOD, AC, rack and pinion steering, disc brakes, and killer stereo.

Or, a Thunderbolt clone with a knuckle dragging stroker 460. Or Both. 8)

Suggestions???

Whatever we end up with will be for sale to finance my wife's lack of desire to be employed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey D,


YOU need to get in the garage!!! Maybe cletus will let you borrow Ellen to come over and help ya out :lol: :lol: But Cletus, with Ellen turning out those cars, do you really want her to get a job? If my wife would go out to the garage and start working on the cars, I would gladly go to work after the hardon went away!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

right..

You're right stangr8cr. I hope she never gets a "real" job again. 8) It would be really sweet if I could quit too, and we could just do this for a living. But I know after about 6 months I'd be missing my regular job, because I'm a lazy SOB. :lol:

Dang Jeff, I want to come live with yall. You build nice shops, buy cool cars, build cool cars, & drink beer.. It don't get no better than that. I hope you told whoever did the wiring on the EFI motor what a nice looking job he did.. :roll: Cool cars though!!!

Are you & Ellen going to make the tech seminar? Also on Jan. 5 Dave Morgan is having a chassis seminar in Richmond. Any chance you would be off work & attend?

Chris,

Hi Chris, this is our first attempt at turning a buck on a car. We are already having creative differences. I'm thinking Rad Rides by Troy, and she wants to clean it , scuff it , paint it, and sell it. :shock:

I'm doing the typical gearhead "while we're here" thing, and she wants to know how we are going to pay for AC, rack and pinion steering, a bad *** stereo, an aluminum stroker FE Tunnel Port with a G-Force 5 speed, and , and, and, ........Well there I go. That is why she walked out of the garage and left me standing there like the dumbass that I am. :?


I won't make it to the tech seminar, but January may be a go.

I hope we can reach some kind of compromise on this. Maybe we can do like the motorcycle guys, and film it. Cuss each other, drink beer, have a lot of drama, and get rich. We wouldn't have to actually build anything would we?? :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
