    Default Winter Builds?

    With winter coming on, Or garage season as I call it, who has what planned?
    Any good projects you want to share?

    I am building a new C/P class racing mower, my old chassis has had enough!
    Doing a few mower race engine builds as well.

    I also finally have decided to do something I have always wanted to do. Wheelhorse tractors were pretty much the Original Lawn and Garden Tractor. I have wanted one for years. So a couple of months ago I picked up a 1961 Wheelhorse "Suburban" model 401. I will begin the restoration on it this winter as well..it is pretty much a basket case right now!

    My racing Team Mate, Larry "Teddy Bear" Benning just picked up a 1949 Chevy Pick-up, so I am pretty sure I will have some time in it's restoration as well!

    The biggest things on my do-to list is pull the motor from the Camaro, put it in the Vega, then build a BBC and put it in the Camaro.

    OHHH I like the sound of that!
    I had a Big Block Camaro in High School.
    That is my "Man I miss that Car" ride!

    Good news is...Think I may have found a "re-builder" nearby that fits the budget!

    Man, you guys put me to shame, I only wax now-a-days.

    However, I'll be putting the finishing touches on the mancave, dropped ceiling going in soon, tile the floor, trim, hang up the love-me wall stuff, sort of like a club basement with cars in it........a big club basement.
