Whelp, it's almost fall and the temperatures are definitely dropping here.
Have you thought about learning to weld?
If you're thinking about setting up a small-scale media blasting outfit, let me offer you some free advice: there's a good chance it's going take more than you think.

It's not like I've never done media blasting before — I even have a small outfit built around an Eastwood bench top blast cabinet.
The need to rebuild the Powerglide in my Grandfather's El Camino has brought to light some glaring issues with space.
My Grandfather didn't like the factory shift knob on the column shifter of his '67 El Camino.
Growing up, my Grandfather sang the praises of the Powerglide in his El Camino.
The El Camino's return is taking shape — well, the plan, at any rate.
I love carburetors.
Recently, after doing a search for information on plating I discovered that, today, the term plating is commonly referred to in cooking circles for the artistic presentation of meals on plates.

It's been a long time since I've driven a car with a carb.
Are you fortunate enough to be able to build a themed garage?
This was supposed to be the week I kicked Classics and Performance into a higher gear.
One of the more difficult aspects of building a structure is figuring out how much space is needed.
I've got some good news:
Many of us are stuck in our homes and it isn't looking good at the moment.
Holy crap that was frigid.
Spring is about to boing.
The other night I was in the Old Classics and Performance Garage and it was damned cold.
Around this time of year, the yearning to hit the open road gets intense for me.
I love old gas stations.
I like car butts and I cannot lie.
Have a finished garage and have problems with holes in the drywall from all your tinkering?

You know what I love?
