    Normally I would post this into each individual car build thread, but that's a hell of a thing to try and do with this...

    Start with the top of the month...

    Drove up to Midland to look at what was or should have been a 440 powered New Yorker, instead I found a completely roached, bastardized 69 New Yorker with a mystery B engine in it, it looks like it has 383 manifolds, water pump valve covers etc, but a 400 intake, etc. It's certainly not a $1k car....the racoon shit and the rockers sitting flush with the ground tell me that. The inch thick body filler in the sides of it and the fact the fender tag doesn't match the dash concerned me...

    I opted to pass on it and its stable mate...I think its the first time I've ever driven up somewhere to look at something and didn't buy it....I think I'm evolving..

    On the way home I stopped in at National Moparts on my way back and got a tour from Nigel, grabbed a Pitman arm for the 73 So I can wrap up the stub rebuild and get it to the point that the drivetrain can go back in...

    Happened to find a 73 fury hood in Nigel's scrap bin that was rotten on the bottom but good under the front lip where my original is rotted,asked Nigel what he wanted for it and was told to take it.

    Thanks again Nigel, and thanks for the invite back up to do some hunting...

    And this past weekend we took a run to do some visiting, started at Konner's and headed down to see my IL friends...

    3000kms on the Ram and it never missed a beat running 65-70 the whole way...the Wife and I enjoyed ourselves and the parts I picked up will be helping to rescue my C's...

    Great haul! That aught to keep you busy for awhile. Which city was the photo with the Paramount theatre taken in?

    "I opted to pass on it and its stable mate...I think its the first time I've ever driven up somewhere to look at something and didn't buy it....I think I'm evolving.."
    Evolving also involves getting rid of cars that you'll never do anything with. I've gotten down to one car that I can't drive anywhere I want. Shocking!

    Like the Imp. Glad it's far away.

    I'm young enough and skilled enough that I'm satisfied with what I currently have and have zero plans of getting rid of any of them. In fact I've been collecting what's needed to properly repair and complete them. Not all will be flawless show cars, but each has its own plan...

    That imp was ROUGH, I mean you would need a donor and a shop full of sheet metal tools to even begin to think of working on it, it hadn't moved since 1977
