Went and checked out one of the last local cruise-in's of the year, since winter is on its way. There was a pretty nice turnout, more cars than I thought would show up. Here's some favorites of Matt's (he likes the green and yellow cars) and I thought this gasser drag "shoebox" was cool! Enjoy!

Drummed up some old pics of the Original Jackie Chan. '95 Civic EX coupe with 16x7, 205/40/16's, Eibach Sportline springs, adjustable KYB AGX shocks, strut bar, intake, shifter, fpr, high flow cat and autozone muffler. :) So stupid to get rid of that car!!!

Took a work trip to Cornelius, OR and happened to be working next to one of the coolest hot rod shops ever, A&M DeLuxe Customs. http://www.aandmdeluxecustoms.com/
The owner spent an hour giving us a very indepth tour of the shop and the 15 or more cars being built. These cars were works of art and they had plenty of go, with modern fuel injected V8's in many of the cars. The owner, Mark, took me for a spin in his '46 Ford truck. "The engine is a real hot 1960 Chevy 283ci, coupled to a Richmond 5sp. The cab has been chopped 4". The grill is 1936 Ford P.U. grill, and the box is a shortend 1937 ford with a 1936 tailgate. It has a 70's chevy P.U. steel bed floor. The hood will be the original 1946, that will be shortened in length, and narrowed in the front to fit the 36 grill. The wheels are Ford, 16" in front and 18" in rear. The tires are Firestones, thru "Coker Tires". What an experience. What a car. And Mark and Aaron, the owners, are the nicest guys you'll meet. Two of the biggest gear heads too. Keep up the good work A&M.

So, still can't afford the real thing, so I thought I'd build a model kit. This is an Evo V WRC kit of the Tommy Makkinen (sp?) car from 1998 I believe. It took me about 15-20 hours to paint and build this thing. It was a lot of fun. Now Jacob wants me to build him a "Suby". :) Enjoy!
