Fantastic! It really shows off ‘thinking outside of the four wheel box.’ With all that grinning, careful your jaw doesn’t cramp up.

Great job. I think that smile is going to last for a looooong time.

First picture popped up in my Facebook memories from 2 years ago today. The second picture was taken last night. Something is a little different...

Here's a shot a local photographer grabbed of Frankie at a car show a couple weeks ago. He makes this car look good! He runs a car enthusiast website that covers my local area. It's stanceiseverything.com if you want to check it out. There's a little bit of everything for everyone on there.

My buddy and I worked hard the last couple of weeks to get this blazer on the road. He picked it up on a trade for work deal. Has full air ride, we just needed to do some floor and rocker work, and pull the 283 from one of his other trucks to get it rolling. I grabbed this shot while we were out cruising last weekend. Frankie is looking and driving good!

If you want to check out a quick little video of the cruise, I threw one up on my dropbox. This one is a stripped down video I made for instagram complete with fun car sounds!

This version is the more edit version with some music.

Thanks! I wanted to get more footage and angles, but my other cameras wouldn't cooperate.

Just fixing all the little bugs that pop up. This weekend just did a new ignition, and turn signal switch. Trying to drive it as much as I can before the snow flies. Then once it's away for the winter, I'm going to work on the rest of the body work and start on the interior work.

Just a universal ignition switch I grabbed at the part store.

I was out and about yesterday and finally found an 8 ball to use for a shift knob. I know you can just buy them, but what's the fun in that? I also wanted one that had been used and was a little beat up. Showing that it was actually used and a little beat up. Didn't want something new and perfect.

I have these metal spiked that I got from a friend. They are drilled and tapped for a smaller thread. So I cut the point off, Drilled an tapped to match my shifter, and hit it with some paint.

Then I just had to drill out the ball and JB Weld my insert in.

Stoked on how this turned out. Nice comfortable fit.
