What's going on?
« on: September 13, 2007, 10:29:04 AM »
   Besides a broken finger and casted hand, I am very busy.  Trying to build a bench for the garage. But with one hand it's tough.

Forward me the info on the Valiant. I work with somebody who might be interested. A pic or two too if you got 'em.

What trannies you got lying around?

PS... Be sure to save some room on that cast for me to sign. I also want to put a Bears logo on it in support of the Bears beating Kansas City! ;D

 Jeds Sled!!! That's funny!! lol  ;D   Yeah I really like the car! Earl and I were talking the other day about it. We both agree it needs an early Hemi in it!!!! O0     It sucks to lose the others but it's just too many projects.   I think I can live with the three projects.  :D


    John, I want to sell the Valiant but with my current state I am not ready. The are parts spread everywhere. I have pretty good idea of what I have but not 100%. I will be wanting a good amount for it ( $7500).  I will include an engine, trans, headers, wheels, and everything I have/find for it.  I have a lot of stuff for it. Things like new outside doorhandles, door rubber , shifter rods, etc.

Cool. Let me know when you've got the Valiant all sorted out.

I'd imagine it's a real bitch finding parts for an oldie like that. Do you have much rust to contend with?

PS... I assume you ain't interested in trading that Valiant for a '65 Chevy C-10 and some cash are you? ;D

 Actually is not as bad as you would think (parts).  It has a good amount of rust.  :-[   But it's not the end of the world. The old mopars from around 39/40 to about 54 are notorious for being rust buckets. I looked at a 41 coupe a few years ago. I stuck my head through the window, looked at the floor and  saw my feet!!!! :o   


It might be possible on the chevy. I would have to see the chevy.    Short bed or long bed? Running?  The engine I have for the Valiant would need to be rebuillt. It probably runs but it's a stock `91 360....read it's a dog!!! :)  A car like that screams sb stroker!! 8)

I just found out that a girl I used to work with is selling her Chrysler 300. It's a pretty sweet car!

Yeah... Sorry about that. It runs. I just replaced the radiator and bled the brakes last weekend. I'm replacing the power steering pump too, but still screwing around with the slotted pulley. It's a 2WD longbed with a 350 and B&M shifter. I think it could be a driver. I'll get some pics for you.

   John, you wanted a pic of this..........






 ;D



 

 


  `08 Street Glide- 96cu in-6 spd.   Harmon  Kardon stereo in the fairing.  ;D   Just turned 900 miles yesterday.  Almost due for it's first service  :P   I have been riding it as much as possible. I can't wait to get it home. It's kind of pita to go get it from my dad's house everytime I want it. Extras for these things are insane. It's going to be $1500 for the pipes!!! Not anytime soon! :-\   I'll keep riding it even though it doesn't sound all that cool.

I'm not usually a big fan of the ferrings, but I like this one because it's sleek. Don't worry about the exhaust... otherwise you won't be able to hear that Harmon Kardon. :P Beautiful Bike man. I love all of that shiny chrome and glossy black paint!

I sold my XR600R the other day. I put it on Craig's List and sold it to the first repsonse (Less than 4 hours). Now, I need to start hounding my buddy to get me some money for the XR650L...

I can probably help you out. I'll store your flat screen tv, so you can store your Harley indoors in the living room. Don't sweat it... it's not trouble at all! ;D
