    Cool, it worked. A little bigger than anticipated...

    And yes, the seat is blue. The original brown one is out being recovered. I borrowed this one from a local junkyard.

    Since the Olds enduro car didn't seem to get his desired response, how 'bout this one? Yep, I'm one of "those" guys. oooh - can feel the chill in the air already. In my defense, I don't expect the world's going to miss a Cavalier with a cracked head.

    1973 Opel Manta A - found it in a barn. It has just run 11000 miles and has been stored since 1975 when it was crashed on the right side. I've replaced the fender, quarter-panel, door etc and this winter I'll be painting and assembling the car.. (and hopefully getting the engine turning again.. seized up =/... )

    If anybody has any good tips please let me know, I'm currently trying with a wrench on the fan pulley to make it turn again but no luck.. (squirted lots of oil in the sylinders).

    Here's my '77 Mercury Grand Marquis. I got it for a song, and it's in pretty mint shape! Only thing is that the 460 isn't very mileage friendly, so the car has been sitting for a little over a year. I've got plans to make it a nice cruiser, but only if the money knocks on the door. If someone knocks on my door and offers me money for it, I'd let it go, too...

    Here's my summer car... or what was my summer car up until last summer, which was the last summer I drove it.

    '63 Chrysler, 2dr H/T, 361 w/ cam, intake, carb, duals, pushbutton, 8 3/4 w/2.76s. She's a fun one, but she needs to go (see sig.).

    Ha yea, thats what happened when I was parked on a hill and the guy feel asleep behind the wheel (was on medication, wasnt supposed to be driving). But on the plus side I was really lucky, I was just about to go move it, I probably would have died if I was in the car due to wiplash. I was right there when it happened, what a terrible sound. Man I'll never forget that day, or date, June 3rd 2003. I just started weeping, one of those first car things I guess. From then on whenever I was at my girlfriends if there wasnt room in their driveway I parked on the lawn or their neighbor was nice enough to say I could park in his driveway. Well thought Id tell me story.

    Default K, here is a porthole shot

    Porthole shot

    I also have to say I amazed the neighbors the other day when I brought home an antique bedroom set in it. They couldn't believe I pulled a dresser, chest of drawers, vanity with bench, headboard and footboard, wood siderails and slats and a mirror for both the dresser and vanity out of the Rendezvous. Oh, a rocker also. Just love this vehicle!!
