    Hey everybody, I need to engage the awesome power of the greater Hooniverse in finding a replacement part for one of my project cars. My Jensen Healey got a handsome new radiator yesterday, one I picked up on the cheap at last month’s Queen’s English car show. It was while testing and installing the radiator that I…

    A few weeks ago, I was visiting my brother’s place, and I had a chance to talk with him about his latest project – a 1964 Corvair Monza. I’ve seen it a few times before, but this time I wanted to let you all in on the fun. Check it out.

    When we purchased this 1984 Tercel for $1k back in 2011 I made a thread on FinalGear entitled “Restoration. How hard can it be?” Unfortunately Richard Hammond wasn’t nearby to shout “Don’t say that!” Still, even though the restoration isn’t anywhere near finished we have made some progress. Only for it to be killed by…

    This is not my car, but it is in my garage, and all of my projects are on hold for the moment, so here’s an update on my friend’s 1931 Chevrolet 5-window coupe, which we dragged out of some guy’s back yard a few weeks ago.

  • Project Car SOTU: Bultakenstein & The Honda CL125S

    Over the years that I’ve been dabbling with my project Bultaco, a certain annual rhythm has evolved. Around the middle of November, my workshop time erodes as my spare time and money starts getting earmarked for holiday get-togethers and Christmas shopping. Once the holidays are over and the credit cards are paid off, usually sometime…

    Rowdy the Audi has been living a rough life, and it’s catching up to him. After nearly 200,000 miles of dutiful service, he’s starting to get tired and require some upkeep. I’m sure that will come as no surprise to a lot of you. German cars aren’t known for their reliability, but this one has…

  • Project Car SOTU: My Porsche 944

    comments

    I believe our very own Jeff Glucker once said that everyone should own at least one car that is older than themselves. I decided that this was the best time in my life to get a 944 then, as I would probably never be able to get one for a good price when I felt…

    comments

    In my last Justy post, I was prompted by the car’s horrifically uneven compression numbers to sideline the car until I made more progress on my AMC Eagle. This has mostly been accurate, though I have since confirmed a handful of possible issues and purchased some new parts to install, while mentally preparing for an engine teardown and…

    Hard to believe that it’s already been almost 3 months since the last update on Roadster. As much as I’d like to say that a lot of progress has been made in autocross preparations since then, it really hasn’t. Life has just gotten in the way lately, as it does at times. That’s not to say…
