    Barn finds that YOU found

    My recent "Barn Find" was after a guy at the auto parts store told me he met a lady that had a 56 Cadillac and her husband passed away after buying the car from the original owner and letting it sit untouched in over 25+ years. She wanted it gone because she was paying a $75 storage locker bill...

    Man I feel your pain been there before, A lot of others stated above that from my experience it can be engine and or trans mounts not aligning up or like showed below from running solid mounts, vibrations and putting stress on the drivetrain.

    Powerful cars are not for kids

    +1 on the go karts, racing and going fast in a more controlled safer environment to learn and take smaller steps on handling and control before jumping right onto the street with something that is way over your head. Dirt is one of the best ways to learn throttle and overall control of a...

    mounting to the Rotisserie

    I went to the front bumper mounts in the front and then made my own brackets that use the shackle mounts in the rear and drop down to square tubing for the rear. Its nice to do the rear on the shackle mounts because you can get all around the whole area while prepping the body.

    UnderBody Work | Need new floor pans and inner rocker panels - advice?

    I did full floor pans driver side and passenger side in my fastback along with one rocker panel and it took me around 35-40 hours if you want another estimate on time and pictures in my build thread on this site. I used mustang coupe seat pans and modified them to fit the fastback as they sat up...

    Anyone here know of a good, one-run vinyl decal shop?

    Kurt, try I have used them on a circle track car on numerous times. Their prices are reasonable and have a quality product. If you go to the packages area and pick a random race car you can just upload an image and set all dimensions and effects and it also gives...
