Crud. I Have so Many Projects….

So, I’m a habitual project collector for sure…..or possibly they are collecting me….i’m not really sure…It’s not like it matters…. The current list reads something like this….

A fresh engine for Frankie, My 48 CJ2A…. Is getting a long deserved 134 L head to replace the tired F head engine….

The new willys wagon project… dubbed Harvey… needs plenty more rust repairs and both axles replaced….brakes….tuneup bits… plus more…

The M715 really needs a modern dana 60 with disc brakes….and hubs that work….as the vintage selectro units won’t tolerate cummins torque….. one bit…

The Comanche diesel pickup still runs like a champ… but does need a motor mount, a couple u joints and some random details…

I have a willys truck cab in the garage that is turning into a 4 door crew cab…..

A pile of parts to build another flatfender with ( this would be #5 in the collection)…..With pto winch stuff…  L 134 motor. A nice solid body tub….two hoods…six fenders…. vintage rancho springs…. A primo 3A frame… Dana44 axle…. Just gotta screw it all together…..sigh….

Two model T trucks…..one, in process of restoration….the other a totally original C cab with factory box. Vintage… right down to the paint….no, im not touching that one….well….I might wash that 50 year old barn dust off it one of these days….hey, at least it does get to cruise the neighborhood….. ( It really does have 50 year old barn dust on it ) It’s too dang cool to mess with….

The diesel wagoneer project went to a good friend who has done nothing with it for months……

The 50 chevy pickup i’ve had for years is still around and i drove it 120 miles last weekend….just cause…. There is nothing quite like the music  that a babbit pounding chevy 216 makes through a set of fenton manifolds with a set of burned out glasspacks…….ahhh the simple joys….

There are plenty other toys here, but i’d bore ya  with all of em…. so goodnight……
