And one rusty 64 Fairlane nick-named the Rust Bucket....And sometimes called the Money Pit...

It has come a long way since last Febuary. Lot of hot days in long sleeve shirt and pants sand blasting the car from top to bottom.....Now with the time change, mostly weekend work to finish the Rust Bucket

If KK wants to see the transformation, there are plenty pictures over at webshots....

This all looks so familiar to me.... my second 64 is a dead ringer for the before picture (minus hubcaps) and my race car looked just like the after shot at one time.

You gonna even put doors on 'er?

Dang Larry, your house looks just like mine. I was instructed that I have until thanksgiving to move a hood, trunk lid, valances, and a pair of seats out of the spare bedroom because its our turn to host Thanksgiving.

Oh yea, the fairlane looks good too

Fortunately, or is that unfortunately?...I am single/divorced and there is just me here.....no kids, no pets, no women.....


hummmmmm...something doesn't sound right there.....but I am happy these days....with me and my life....

Is there anything else beside a car and a 6 pack of beer at 51yo?.......lol

BTW.....thanks for all the comments everyone....

Alex, this is what I am hoping to have finished and drag to the MM gathering....

Jerry,

How about I come and watch you work on your race car?

The more I work on this Rust Bucket, the more I ask myself, WHY do I do this?
