"Nightwind" 1969 Corvette coupe in St Petersburg, Florida.
This is the first car I ever purchased "new", ordered from the factory with a 390 HP 427 engine and 4-speed. I designed all changes and performed most of them myself, including the bodywork. It is now powered by an all-aluminum 479 CID supercharged and fuel injected big block, backed by a Richmond 6-speed manual trans.
This is a 1968 Mustang Fastback GT. It is special to me for a couple of reasons: my wife graduated high school in 1968 and always wanted this car and secondly my cousin collected cars and had 8 68’s. Unfortunately he suffered a massive stroke and his sister had to sell off the Cars to pay the bills. These cars were in various stages of repair. The one I bought was a project car and needed quite a bit of love. It has taken me over 4 years and a fair amount of money, but it’s been fun.
I am currently working on a 1951 Chevy Fleetline, in Haslet, TX. The car originally belonged to my dad, who passed away in 1996. He grew up in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s and loved customs. He started building the car as a mild custom. He gave me the car before he passed away. It has been many years now, but I am finally close to finishing all the custom touches before it gets paint. Some of the modifications: chopped top, shaved door handle, shaved trunk, 2 piece hood welded together, frenched lights, frenched lake pipes, hopped up 235 w/ 5-speed transmission.
This is my 1962 Buick Electra 225. It has the original 401 NailHead engine and auto. transmission with only 53,557 miles. It's been lowered 2" and rides on 17x7 and 18x8 Coy's wheels. This car has every option that Buick offered including : A/C, Power windows, 6- way power seat, rear defrost, power trunk, wonder bar radio, tissue box, etc. She rides like a dream down the road. Thanks for looking.

Lots more. I am the currant President Windy City Miata Club.
This is a car I built from scratch. I built the frame and rear suspension, and I built the body from fiberglass after I made a full size plaster model. It has a Chevy LT-1 engine, and some other GM parts, and a few Chrysler parts, but mostly I made it myself.
