    Bucket seat question....

    Thinking of going to buckets/ buddy seat in my 68 T/C wagon and wondering what years and cars would I be looking at? I assume 66-68 across all the platforms would most likely be the same, but might be just the 67/68 with 66 being a slightly different animal? I have a C-body buddy seat and...

    Well I finally got my 2 post lift installed in the shop...well that was about a month ago now. ;) It's a 9000lbs off shore unit but I only paid $1100 for it I think...that was almost 5 years ago now.

    Might be getting back one of my old cars...

    This is the one car I restored with virtually no expense spared. I sold it back around 2000/2001 when we had one young child and second on the way, so the car reluctantly went up for sale to pay off dept so we could afford our first home. Fast forward to around March 2020 when I was...

    Just picked up a 68 300...

    Came across this car a week or so ago, mostly complete 68 300 2dr with a 440/auto, power drums brakes, power windows, rear defogger. Guy was selling it cheap...$650 cdn for the car, but no registration or papers. Thought it would be a good parts car for my 68 T/C wagon, and perhaps the whole...

    WANTED 1971 Superbee

    So I've decided since I'm looking for my dream car I'm going to be a bit more picky about what I'm willing to purchase. My dream car is a 1971 Superbee in GF7 Dark Green Metallic, 383 or 340, other options are not too important. Car must have a clear title in sellers hand, WM23 VIN and...

    What to use this for in the shop?

    Scavenged an old gun safe, it's about 10" deep, 21" wide by 56" tall, nice heavy duty metal but I can't think of what to use it for....add more shelves for storage, or cut it down and make it into something more useful? Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

    Thoughts of freeing up a seized part...

    I picked up an old Craftsman radial arm saw for free a while back, had been left out in the elements for a number of years. I have been working on getting everything cleaned up and working as it should and have only one area I can not get working again. It's the arms left and right movement...

    Lost an old friend today.... ;)

    Was cutting some metal with the old Dewalt and a cut-off wheel, the blade caught and sent the grinder across the shop floor, smashing and banging along the way. Smashed the blade up so went to spin it off but the blade lock would no longer work, and now there is a bunch of resistance and a...
