But this is the real reason.

Neatest thing I have seen in a long time.

Taken in Norrtälje

this fuckin RULES!!!!!

Thanx to Ozzy "The Icelander living in Norway" for the pic!

This scares me...

Ok, in a magazine i happened to be looking at, there is an article on doin some easy fab stuff. It's for exhaust and this is one of the pix with the article.

Ok, I look at this pic and I see a cast iron connecting rod welded (Mig it looks like) to a steel frame. Then with a plate welded to the other end. I DON'T CARE IF THIS IS A TEST STAND OR WHATEVER, but that setup is the most dangerous thing i have seen in a long time.
First off rigid mouting a small block chevy into a hot rod frame is dumb, but using a cast iron piece and welding it to steel is a RECIPE FOR FAILURE.
Now, i have rigged all kinds of shit in my life, and i was hoping that this wasn't a real car.
but low and behold, next page, this is a complete car.

Who ever decided that this was a good idea to put into print is fuckin crazy. Am I wrong?
I don't think so.

Norrtälje Flathead!!!!

Thanx to Ozzy "The Icelander living in Norway" for the pic!

Let me know!!!!!

miss zoe minx

motor MADNESS!

OK, if you know Nelson, he is a pretty level headed guy, he doesn't freak out and he always thinks before he speaks ( I wish i could do that...)
last week I got in the new S&S motor in for his FXR that he has 90,000 plus miles on and he decided that it needs to match the drive train. On sat we stent a couple hours taping it all off.

in the above picture you can't tell but he is freaking out that I just painted his new motor, he was litterally running around like chicken little losing it... It was rad.

It's done now.
