The Factory Five '33 Hotrod arrived last week. Lots of boxes to open & parts to inventory before we get started. Looking forward to building #1. We're building a coupe, but it can be a roadster, too.

Any qualified techs out there tired of the rat race you live in?

Updates-

1. Finally getting the 428 out of the Shelby clone to get refreshened up and covertly upgraded.
2. The 32 is ready for the road test stage. The punch list is getting short.
3. This low miles 2003 Thunderbird is a little new for what we usually work on, but a really good customer wants to make it a Christmas gift for a special person. We'll freshen it up.
4. The first Factory Five car will arrive in about a week.

Many thanks to our awesome God above, our amazing customers, and the talented group of people who surround me everyday to make this possible.

It's hard to believe how intentional you have to be to get cool air into your engine instead of hot underhood air.
We built this system to take in air from over the left headlight just as the factory did in this 57 BelAir.
The air filter can easily be accessed from the wheel opening area without a lift or crawling around on the ground.

We finished the 62 Corvette this week. Not to cosmetic perfection, but to make it a great driver. The car does everything well based on it's original design intentions. To improve on that we did upgrades to the electrical system, cooling system, rewired the car, added bias look radials, a beefier sway bar, and much more. Everything done covertly to maintain the correct appearance. The red rocket will be back next winter for some interior work, but until then...Enjoy your dream car, George.

Had a super time last Friday providing 3 of the cars for a Steak & Shake photo shoot.
Long hot day but we met a lot of great Steak & Shake corporate people, store folks, and talented production crew.
Stay on the lookout for their new Car Hop service commercials.

We're finally getting moved into our new location after weeks of delays. Stay tuned for more pics as we get the place cleaned up and equipped to do business. Lighting, painting, and setting up equipment will eat up the next week for sure. Stay tuned for our official opening day and eventually an open house.
Thanks to all who have been such a big help.

After an extended stay at the body shop, we're finally getting a good start on the Juliomobile.
We're prepping the supercharged LSA engine for it's dyno run at Grimes, and installing the plastic mock up engine & trans in place to build the road map for the engine compartment.

We started modifying and mocking up the late model Camaro SS interior as well. A lot of planning still takes place at this stage.
