Garage

So I don’t own anything crazy, but I do have a few cars I really like.  Here’s a few of them.

1966 Volkswagen Double Cab Pickup

First up is my 1966 Volkswagen Double Cab Pickup.  I traded my old 1970 Datsun Rat Rod Pickup and some cash for it.  It has a 1776cc engine, IRS Rear end, late model Bus transmission, adjustable narrowed front beam w/ disc brakes,and Empi wheels.  It has the factory canopy rack but I’m planning on taking that off and running a half Empi style roof rack.  I really love this one and it’s a great family cruiser.

1983 Honda Civic Wagon

Also, here’s my 1983 Honda Civic Wagon.  This one was a mess when we found it.  It’s been swapped over to a 1996 Acura Integra LS fuel injected swap by my friend Charles Warren who started Mainstream Automotive.  It’s a 5spd that runs custom axles by The Drive Shaft Shop. The paint is all custom and done by my friend Brian at Brian’s Paint and Body in Sharpsburg,GA.  He took the whole car apart and painted it D-12 Tank Green from Nissan.  My favorite thing about the car is the wheels. They’re Enkei 92′s in 15×7.  They’re an old school wheel that’s been re-released this year and really give it the perfect touch.  Also it’s on Yokohama S-Drive tires and has a Magnaflow exhaust done by Sharpsburg Muffler.

1996 Buick Roadmast Estate Wagon

Ever since I got to experience one of these sleepers on an episode of Top Gear (yes we filled it with water) I knew I had to have one.  Finally I found the right one.  I’ve made just a few tweaks to it thus far.  It has a 5.7 ltr V8 under the hood that makes the new Flowmaster exhaust simply rumble.  She is lowered on some Hotchkis coilovers thanks to my buddy Dan Kahn!  And I plan to get some high flow cats put on soon.  I had the tint redone and new speakers and stereo install by my good friend Cory Garcia.  If you remember, I roasted the tires on this beauty a little while back so I now have a set of Yokohama S Drives.  Take a look!


2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty on Kelderman Air Ride Suspension

This beast was the brainchild of my good friend Jeff Kelderman.  He first started building air ride suspension kits out in Iowa for farm equipment.  Seeing how well they worked, he decided he would attempt to fit one to a truck.  And as they say, the rest is history.  This bad boy is a 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.7 liter Turbo Diesel tuned with a Bully Dog Performance Maintenance Tool.  It sits on 24″ BMF wheels and roast those big Toyo tires.  The Kelderman Air Ride Suspension kit is adjustable to 3 different heights.  Bottom line, this thing is a MONSTER!
 

1949 Chevrolet Step Van (Kurbmaster)

This unique ride started it’s life as a delivery truck, became a pool truck, and now is a gnarly, tire roasting, 525hp MONSTER.  We teamed up with Summit for all the parts, from engine to transmission, suspension, brakes, wheels, tires.  You name it.  The awesome team at American Resto Mods took the body off the old frame and mounted to the donor frame, a Chevy Silverado 2500.  They then installed all the goodies we got from Summit and friends, installed the custom exhaust from Magnaflow, custom fabricated nearly everything inside, AND drove it Birmingham to meet me on the Hot Rod Power Tour!  And it’s AWESOME!  This thing will fly and rides like a new car.  Check it out.
