I need to get to work, but my old age says it is too cold. Last week when it was nice out I did get some work done.

Working on my tools and equipment, slowly. Once the kids are out of the house, I'll build a shop. Then, the real fun begins.

I build shit every weekend. Iím rebuilding my 89 hatch, running a junkyard racer 89 Supercoupe and still have a complete MM suspension in progress on my 94 Cobra. On top of that just got finished with a motor swap on a 2008 Chevy Cobalt and am rehabbing a 2001 BMW 540i. Busy as fuck.

The engine for my 68 Cougar is back together, and I was able to give it a test fire before installing yesterday. Now I just have to hook everything up.

I'm currently waiting to hear if I'm going to get a steal on an LSA for the Chevelle or if I need to allocate the $$$ for a LSX454. I don't have pics to post because I am a bad car-dad,lol.

EDIT - I did just take on a ton of household projects since we decided we need a bigger house and I need to wrap up all of the ones I've started in the current casa.

I need to get my dad's Camaro running too. I think I just need to go through the carburetor thoroughly, then it'll need some tires to get around the corner to my house

All I could do today to "get off my butt and build something", was to order parts.

Bought completely 94/95 black interior from carpet to dash to every other small trim piece.

My 17x4.5" Billet Specialties Street Lites came in

Ordered from Racecraft Inc
Chromoly k-member
Chromoly 13" A arms
Caster camber plates
Parachute mount and back bar
Window net framework
Billet lug nuts for front wheels

Ordered up some 4 bolt tube flanges to go with my tubular front clip waiting to go on. Gonna make it removable.

Filled my Amazon wishlist with about $3k in tools to help me finish out my cage and chassis. Still need a tig but I'm shopping.

one of these days. I figured while it's getting the mini tubs, 12pt cage plus some, through floor subs, rear narrowed, 35 spline spool, tubular front, gutted interior, and Racecwire Solutions complete vehicle wiring, I might as well do the parachute mount too.

I drove my Cougar today. No issues but it does need an alignment. Still need to dial in the timing, but I love the powerband on this cam. Now it’s time to hopefully get my black truck running.

I wish I had held onto my 55's now would be the perfect time in my life to restore them.

I ordered my new hood from VFN Fiberglass. Pin on Cajun Pro profile which will take 5-6 weeks to build. Should have ordered a month ago.

Also been hunting a new trailer puller/family trickster. Been searching for a clean Excursion. Found a few I'll go look at when I'm home in a few weeks.

Lined up with Bigshoe to finish my cage, add a few more bars, chop off my front end and mount my 417 tubular setup, and a bunch of other odds and ends that I dont trust myself to weld up.
