It's Friday!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAASSER TIME!!

The owner spotted me crawling all over his car and came forward to let me have a peak under the hood. Thanks!! But I didn’t catch you name, Sorry!

 

He told me that this engine was borrowed from a friend, but he was building a engine for it this winter... he was planning to drive it next year! How cool is that?

What most racers got too see... Nice view though...
 
Notice those rear "lights", they were actually installed by my "brother" and fellow Norwegian, Leif Leffe Asklund, aka. Fusentast... visit his blog at:
http://fusentast.skynetblogs.be/
 
You see, mouse trap was found by Chris Morley a few years ago, he got it painted back to yellow, and had McPeak redo his original stripes and Graphics! When Leffe and Øystein "Splitman" Asphjell came over to visit him, Chris put them to work on Mousetrap and the Race Shop Ghia to get them ready for the Classic...! Pretty Cool!

Crestline in da house!!

Picked up four Crestline’s for my friend Metz earlier this week... good shape, and more importantly GENUINE stuff... One funny detail... the centre caps are only held by three screws... the last two is just marked of with a centre punch? Anyone seen this before?

Next week I have been doing this blogging thing for a year... I must say it feels longer than that... What did I ever do before that...?

I got this cool scan from my good friend Anders Letmolie... he likes the seventies style just as much as I do... but we both draw the line at those moustaches...

When it comes to taking pictures you have a few options.. I snapped this picture after the owner had jacked the car up in the rear... making this clean "Resto" look like a hardball Cal-looker...
