Needing A Lift

A quiet week by design as we are looking to relocate the ‘boys club’ tea area to a temporary tea hut just out the back of Adam’s workshop. A lot smaller and not quite as comfortable, but we’re sure it won’t hurt for a little while. The old building needed a little TLC before we started to get any problems, once we have sorted that out we make it a more efficient working space us. Quite what we will do with Adam’s prized cars stored in there at the moment will be a bit of a head ache. Simply put we’re running out of room for car storage, again. The more space we make the more cars Adam adds to his fleet of vehicles.

Customer Engine:

This 302 has been taken out of a car as it was “using a bit of oil with an odd noise”. We had the go ahead for a strip down to see what was going on. We had a rough idea it wouldn’t be good news from the descriptions we had.

With the heads of we could see it was badly coked up from the oil burning.

We got to the lifters and found that one was broken (arrowed) with the retaining clip missing. Where it has gone we will find out soon enough.

The engine is ‘a bit worn then’ was an understatement from the guys as they were stripping it down.

Our Cars

The ’65 Ranchero is starting to look a little happier with Yogi fabricating some patches that were needed in the bed area.

Considering the trucks age and what it has been used for, it’s in pretty good condition. The front end has been ground and rubbed down from the welding fixes and new metal.

Working towards the back nobody would ever know about the patches.

Adam’s is hoping to get the shop truck ready for some shows this year. Depending on work loads it may not happen as we only use our car projects as fillers of course.


Adam had a delivery late on Friday for some glass we had on order. We do know that some of these windscreens are already reserved for customers, and couple for our own projects. Check here for our stock levels.

It made a nice change to open the shipping crate and find that none were broken. That had to be a first!

Stay Safe & Take Care!
