The rear builds up with snow/slush really fast and I had it freeze to the wires to the lower reverse lights and rip the wires out. If you can park it in a garage where the snow will melt out of there at night you will be fine, but be ready to dig lots of snow out of the back. Even without the SC/T kit on the car it built up lots of snow in the rear fascia when I had to drive it in the winter.

She said it looked too much like a boy car so I swapped out the bumpers and such for the base. Then I have a baller 2011 GMC Acadia Denali, with factory chrome 20s, chrome on the mirrors, running boards, tail gate... I have added air ride to it so it rides like a champ. Selling my '86 Fiero GT if anyone is interested. LS7 in back, with GM hot cam procharger and some other goodies pushing out 1,018 RWHP. Traction limited, currently runs 9.50s. Looking for 16K.

I like cars, and the wife likes that I have a 'Hobby'. I have over 5500 HP sitting in my Garages. Will build on that!

I went to the wonderful UGA. Go Dawgs! Ended up moving with work and graduating from The Ohio State. Not so proud of that.


This is a true story. Though, i thought it was pretty funny when looking at pictures. I am crazy about detail work. To a fault. I love having a lift to get the underside clean. Any painted surfaces under the car have been clearcoated and get waxed with a full under carriage cleaning 2 times a year. I take off all factory pieces under the car and powder coat them, thn pop it into my oven to bake them. So 0 rust, even on the raw parts that are expected to get surface rust. I even powder coat the bolts to hold the parts back in place. It pays down the road when i don't ever have to deal with floor pan rust or anything. I could show you pictures of my 1977 SE Y82 Bandit Edition 400 4 speed Trans Am that would make your jaw drop. You would think the car has never been sat in, and I have 95,000 miles on it.

You got me drooling over that Bandit Car!! eeeeeeek.. Now that is one car I wouldn't mind driving around, Would be better if I could find a Real Bandit car that was used in first and second movies!! then again I would want General 1 ' the dukes of hazzard ' car!! Btw, It'll be at the Barret Jackson Car Show in Jan. I so wish I had a few million dollars to buy General 1.

Here are a few pics from 2 months ago. I like the General Lee as well.
The only under car shot with good enough light. Not real clean looking here, but not 100k looking either

You may think I am crazy, but a buddy of mine hunted down a rare Grand Am/Lemans/GTO basically. In 1977 there was a car called the Can Am. TA shaker and engine, Lemans body, Grand prix dash and center console, and custom body parts. Not so attractive all around, but rare. 1 car has the hard to come by 403 Olds engine (only 42 made) the other has the Sunroof and a ton of options which is also rare. Only 1350 built before the mold to the spoiler broke and GM did not allow the company time to fix it. Just shut down the project. The Can Am registry says less then 250 are still on the road today.

I was given a contact to a guy who has 2 for sale. He is going to work me out a great deal. Needs restored, and has rust on the back side. Surface only. In good shape the cars go for about 15K, the rare optioned ones like at Volo auto museum has, go for about 30K. Poor condition around $7000. This guy is willing to sell me one of 4 known 403 cars left, and the other with the metal power sunroof for $3500. Not sure that I can turn it down. Another $500 to ship or so, I am still looking pretty good.

Here is the car. Just to have something rare from yesteryear






And the ones I am looking at. Notice the rust on the front fender of the far one. He said a deer hit him with the car parked in the driveway. Killed the deer.


Does not look too far gone. I think I can bring them both back. Or maybe turn one to fund the other? Not sold on the idea of two resto projects at once. But I do know the engines and trans inside and out.

As it sits, took this today on a drive up the Columbia River area, needs a wash. We had to take off the SC/T lip before it got too destroyed going into our driveway, but as for snow, lets just say I don't miss it.

Cleaned the duo today, taking advantage of the oddly warm weather. Almost 60*F, and it's three days from Christmas.

I hate storing for winter. The only thing good about it is that you get to catch up on some work that needs done.

I need to wash my car. It's filthy from sitting so long, and the stupid lawn maintenance guys at my apartment complex blowing dust all over it with their stupid leaf blowers. There isn't a good place to wash my car here though, and all my cleaning/detailing stuff is still in my buddies garage.

I know that FEEL, man.

My pops hires a lawn crew to maintain the front and back yards. I park on the street, next to the front yard, and they give no focks if I'm parked here. Grass and debris all over my car if I forget to move. And don't get me started on he damn water sprinkler system.
