1936 Chevrolet Master DeluxeSwede FredenKasilof, AK
First of all, I would like to thank you for the great show you have. I enjoy watching the different projects you do.
My project is a 1936 Chevy 4-door Deluxe Sports Sedan; which I started in 2012 after the car sat in the yard for 30 years. As my retirement project although challenging at times, it has been a lot of fun. Especially, now that I can drive it.
The project started by removing all the wood out of the four doors and replacing with sheet metal, adding power windows and powered the rear wing windows for the dog of course! Pulled the old 6-cylinder 206.8 cu Stovebolt motor out and three speed with drive shaft and rear end. Pulled the body off and cleaned the frame. Then replaced the rotted-out floor boards along with powering and heating the original front bench seat. Added a Helix Mustang II front end with power rack then went to the rear and put in a triangulated four link on the 10 bolt Posi Nova rear-end and finished painting. Repaired and filled holes in the firewall and painted. Put the body back on and fit the 350 Chevy motor with 350 turbo transmission. Fit a custom-built radiator and got it running. I fabricated and mounted the sun visor. Onto the body work; priming and painting with my wife’s help keeping the stripe straight and design right.
Bought Speedhut gauges with GPS speedometer and installed. Then came the wiring; wow that got my attention! Used Painless Wiring Kit, which saved a lot a grief. I added an Old Air A/C and heater. I modified the dash for defrost vents, which the car did not have. Making it better for Alaska conditions. Currently working on upholstery and adding extras.
This is a resto-rod and will probably always be modifying. Fun project and it drives excellent. Thanks for the chance to show my project to you. Always a smile on my face while driving.

2005 Honda Rebel 250Scott StylesEllijay, Georgia
As an Army Veteran and former MP sergeant I've always wanted an old Harley WLA. But I simply can't afford one. So I bought a nice 2005 Honda Rebel 250 with only 2300 miles on it. I disassembled the entire bike, blasted and painted every part on it. A solo seat, ammo cans , custom rack and tail light, relocated turn signals and front highway lights were some of the additional mods needed for the look I was after. I did all the work myself. People are in shock when I tell them what the bike really is. Nobody guesses right the first time. Even I was impressed at how it turned out. I hope you guys like it as well.

1952 Ford F1Fred TumblesonSnow Shoe, PA.
I recently retired and decided that I wanted to restore a classic vehicle to keep myself busy. My wife, who has never hesitated to lend me a hand in the garage while maintaining our daily drivers, suggested finding an early 50's Ford pickup. She has fond memories of these trucks because when she was young her grandfather took her with him to farm sales in his early 50's Ford F1. I have always thought that the Ford Flathead V8s were pretty cool so I thought this would be a fun project. I am not a trained auto technician but my father, who was an Aviation Mechanic in the Navy taught me how to service and maintain my own cars. I also have a son who is an auto body tech so this just seemed to be a perfect opportunity to involve the whole family in a project that is meaningful to each of us. I found a 1952 Ford F1 in California that was originally purchased new by the US Navy. It has a brass serial number plate to prove it. Having a Navy connection reminded my of how my Father developed my love of vehicles and the fact that this was a California vehicle with relatively little rot struck me as this was what were going to start our project with. I disassembled it down to the frame, cleaned and blasted the frame and painted it. I have replaced all bearings and bushings in the rear end and spring ends and have installed a Mustang II IFS with disc brakes and rack and pinion steering. I have also updated the master cylinder with a vacuum assist, dual reservoir unit. I have also rebuilt the three speed transmission. The engine is currently at the machine shop and the cab has been totally disassemble for preparation for the sandblast shop. Finally, I have purchased an aftermarket bed assembly that we are currently welding together. When completed we plan to join local cruises and taking it to local car shows. Another way to share quality time with the family.
