Barn Find and Project Car Update

Many of you have been asking what is up with the Project Cars and any new Barn Finds? It has been a great summer and that usually means spending more time using the cars than working on them! However, we have managed to get the Barn Find AMX back on all four wheels with new suspension, and rebuilt drive train along with new tires and wheels. We may play with it some yet this year and then put it away in the body shop for new paint this fall. We also will be sharing with you the details of a great new exhaust system we installed on the car. It is an adjustable muffler you can tune from the drivers seat! Really cool stuff!

As for other recent finds we are most excited about the 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler Dan Gurney Special 428 SCJ Ram Air 4-Speed Drag Pack car. This is another find from long term storage in a body shop in Southern California. There is a lot more to this story and we will be sharing it with you as we continue our detective research on it. Just let me say, this is a rare car!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
