Wow what a beautiful car, the black is so nice, so freaking nice!

Nice garage build Greg and what cool deal for you to give him a hand in freshening it up for him!

Thanks Rick....


I only posted it up because the Skeepers (screen name -- Compost Mints - or something like that) asked me to. Actually - I'm certain most of the guys here don't think I've ever even seen a car let alone take the time to work on 'em.

Do it now while its out.


Just my .02cents so the project takes longer.


I'm just the wrench.... It's not my car... so I don't call any of the shots. I've pushed pretty hard to get him to do some of the things over that needed some "modernizing". It's tough to tell a guy with a beautiful car - that he built - "er... um... dude... ya think that really looks good?" "How 'bout we rip that all out and start over."


I usually just start that conversation the Greg Weld way --- "WTF were you thinking -- oh wait -- no -- you probably weren't were ya."

You really can't see the heads and they are polished on the ends.

You're a brave man, Mr. weld. I have a truck with a paint job just like that car. It's won everything ISCA can throw at it, and I'm afraid to even look at it, much less do something like your doing. I've put four miles on my truck, since I built it, in 1996!
That is a beautiful tri-five for sure! Absolutely beautiful!

Scott -- Gotta tell ya -- Everything we do takes an extra 30 minutes of prep. I just really don't want to be "that guy" that dropped a wrench down the side of the car.

Pierre didn't even want to take the front end off! I said I wouldn't work on it if we didn't because there's no way I'm leaning over them to do the kind of work that we discussed.... bending new brake lines -- moving a few things around... fixing some leaks... changing most all of the wiring in front of the firewall...

You just have to take the time to protect stuff BEFORE you drop the wrench because we will drop the wrenches!

There's very little milage put on this car -- for exactly the reasons you site. Thus his new "project" is the baby blue '57 he bought from Rodger (Ironworks)... it's going to be his "driver". I keep telling him that once he drives that 525hp LS motor - on an Ironworks chassis.... "you'll never drive that black car again".

Man you're living!



Pimpin out a new rig and helping a friend wrench on such a great looking car, good times! How much of a "project" is the 57? Just little details or blow it apart and fix all the stuff from the last shop??

If we don't connect before you split, honk as you pass exit 4.

Greg, I see what you mean with that paint, that black is flawless! Very cool car, and cool story about the build to go with it. That baby blue '57 is sweet also, some great rides right there.
