    Hot Rods & Old Classics - Lets See Em...

    I thought it would be cool to see some old school projects you all are working on.... If youíre Wrenchin on Jeeps, Iím sure there is a love for Classic Steel...

    This is my 65 Chevy C10 that in 3 weeks, I will be taking on a 4 day, 1500 mile Cruise through Arizona and back.

    Awesome thread!! I've got a few I'm working on, one of them is my 65'. It's going under the knife and I'm making it a automatic again, and possibly bag it.

    Awesome! I'm going to leave mine a flatbed with 35" rear tires and cut holes in the bed for the drop. It might look horrible but I'm hoping that it'll look good.

    My projects are sitting out as I rebuild a 72 bronco for a buddy.
    Here's my 57 wagon waiting for me to drop the motor into it. IMG_2004.jpg and my truck sitting to be finished back up. IMG_2005.jpg I have a few others but not sure what I'm doing with them yet. 72 240z, 66olds holiday hardtop, 74 nova spirit of America edition, 51 chevy half ton step side and a 77 vaga GT.

    I have always had an early Ford of some form in the works. Itís a disease. Trade up, trade down, buy, sell, follow up on leads, early morning swap meets. I was about 12 when my dad bought us a project to work on a Ď56 F-100 and since then these dumb old cars have consumed my life. lol

    At the moment Iím down to only 4 Fords.
    Iíve had this Ď31 Tudor for 15 years. Itís been built, stripped and rebuilt 3 times but never really finished. lol

    My most recent project. Picked this Ď67 Galaxie up about two years ago and about ready to paint it to put on the chopping block.

    Photoshop what is planned.

    Almost there. Rebuilt the 390 and transmission, new top, front suspension rebuilt. Just ran out of steam and $$ for body and paint. Hopefully in a few months itíll get done.

    This is what happens when you hoard parts and realize you can have a complete running car with all the crap you accumulated for a different project. This thing is fun.

    And of course. Last but not least. Iíve had this truck a little while now. Up until recently it was my daily driver. Nothing like actually using your old junk as intended.

    Hereís one I sold to of course buy something else. Ď55 F-100 (Ď54 grill)
    IMG_0776.JPG.

    The problem is. The first one, the 56 that had all the sentimental value and memories was sold and since then Ive been chasing the same connection. Few years ago I had tracked it down and offered to buy it back. Still waiting for that phone call....


    Cool thread!!!

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
