Nice VWeekend


Joe Mack...

Joe Mack is legendary far beyond the suburbs of Maryland, thanks in part to Steve Coonan, creator of the Rodder's Journal. Joe was involved in a number of car-related businesses but his most successful one was upholstery.  Steve Coonan documented Joe's adventure driving his 1929 Ford Roadster across America. The picture belowe shows Joe on his way to California where he made a lot of friends... also some of the legends of the Hot Rod world.

Thursday Tech Specs- Bellhousing & Patterns

Bellhousing is a term for the portion of the transmission that covers the flywheel and the clutch or torque converter of the transmission. This housing is bolted to the engine block.

On some transmissions, the bellhousing is a non removable part of the transmission case.

Sled Saturday

1947 Buick Sedan Leadsled...
Lots of work got in to this ride... the front I can dig but the roofline could be done better I think.
Of course... chopping a sedan is a pain in the ass... but then rather leave it original / alone.
