My last project
I have been absent from SC for a while, here is a little of what I have been doing.

I bought this POS bike from my brother in law for $100.

Two days later I traded it for this 70 Chevy pickup. Brought it home in pieces.

When I got it home and my wife saw it her words were "Are you F ing kidding me". I had it running that night, and fully assembled about a week later. Once I took her for a ride in it she loved it.

I can never leave well enough alone, so I bought some new wheels and tires, and lowered it.

Its a good driver, but the plan was to sell it and make some money. Buying and selling cars is what I love do, and I make a pretty good profit at it.

Nice! Love those old pickups.
Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.
Carl, nothing like a GREAT DEAL!!!! Nice score and initiative is a great thing. Thats the way I started years ago. Buy one fix it up, sell it or trade up and keep going. I have had over 200 cars and trucks, MOPARS all of them. Today I have downsized to two Cudas and a 63 Polara 500 convertible, but I started with buying 5 Imperials back in the day for $100.00 each for their 440s and trans. Sold 4 off to the derby guys for $500 each after removing the running gear for Cuda, roadrunner and the like. The last one was a 2 door and it sold for $2500. Thats $500 into $4500 in a week. Bought my first car hauler and never looked back. Its fun and because its a hobby its not taxed.

What you are doing shows that hard work and some thinking can do for you. I now build cars, trucks, old coke machines like my coke humidor, gas pumps, ect.

I just posted these same pics on the tool box P0RN thread but I am at home in my shop and this is just a part of it. Thta back corner room is a paint booth inside the garage. I spend a lot of hour inside there.

Not bad gentlemen. I have to say that I've never been accused of being in any way "handy" so I have a ton of respect for people that are!
