Finishing up the center X member in this Pro Street 32 ford chassis I built a while ago. The customer wanted to wait to finish it once he bought a Tremec 5 speed. That took 10 years! He also wanted a TCI style center X-member. I’m NOT a fan of this type on center X-member for a few reasons: 1. NO room for mufflers 2. Bulky and busy looking 3. Hard to paint ! I could go on but this is what he wanted ! We make the customer happy..... even if this is not the best way to Goode packaging. #strunkfabrication #droppedaxleproductions #webuiltcustomframes #prostreet #prostreetisnotdead #fattires #loudpipessavelives #ascframerails #wecanbuildyouone #tremec5speed

I put @karistrunk to work installing the newly chromed grille bars on the grille surround. There are some 60 10-32 machine screws, washers and nuts! I think she has a new appreciation for my job!😬 it is a tedious job with very little room but she did great.... but left a not so good mood! 😁 #strunkfabrication #4754chevytrucks #bigtruckstuff #vintagetrucking #cumminspower #greatwife #idratherbehomelessthanchromeless

Sorry for the bad pictures but I have been trying to find this place for years! I first stumbled up on this place when he used to drive a truck for a concrete company and deliver supplies. This place is got Cadillacs door handle to door handle on every square inch of the property around the trailer house. The Cadillacs range from the 40s to the late 70s. I have actually driven by this place two times trying to find it. When I first found this place the owner was there... BUT ...VERY nasty and chased me off the property! He was very old 24+ years ago! I wondered if he was even still around but I see all the signs all over the property not to trust pass. It does appear that somebody has been in there and moved a few cars because it’s not as densely packed as it used to be. There’s little places outside of West Union Ohio off of old Cincinnati pike! #cadillac #cadillacjunkyard #imgonnafixitoneday #hoarding #hoardingdisorder #westunionohio

I have always liked these Stageway Coach Crewcab conversations! This they are so neat. From what I read the Rail Road had a contract with GM for these trucks and that is why there were so many! The contract went to ford or dodge around 67! Sure would like to find one or even just a cab someday.... think 44” super swappers on a one ton 4x4 chassis! #6066chevytrucks #c10trucks #stagewaycoaches #stagewayconversion #stagewaycoach #stagewaycoachesinc #vintage4x4 #chevytrucks @ Santa Fe, New Mexico

It is very cool to see what @davidfreiburger has done with this Model A coupe what an accomplishment getting into the 8’s in the 1/4 mile with a light model A! It has been cool to see the transformation of this coupe. We originally built the chassis for @hotrodhighley for his custom @hotrodmafia . Now a lot has been done and modified by other shop and many hands got this coupe to run this hard . A full cage and the back rear suspension has been reworked ( I don’t not want to take any credit for that work) just very cool to see this coupe run so strong! #strunkfabrication #webuildchassis #hotrodframes #av8 #droppedaxleproductions #modelacoupe #modelason32frames #modelabodyondeuceframe

I was stoked to see this car in person! Jim Lytle played around with Allison V12 engines and this Fiat Topolino has 4 of them !!!! So cool to see this in person! I don’t think he was ever able to run it successfully..... but still cool to see! He also built a White semi truck with an #allisonv12 in it as well!

Almost exactly 5 years ago @karistrunk and I were invited fir the second time to go to Germany to visit our good friends @wagnersben & @melliewagner ! They took us to this little #gasthaus in Austria on a small lake! This place was very cool and one or favorite places in Europe! Our room excess was a stair well behind the bar! If you wanted a beer you walked down the steps! The balcony had the best view of the lake and mountains! We had the best breakfast in the morning! I’m not exactly sure what town this was but I’d sure like to be there for a few day right about now! Also some of the best beer and sausages in Nuremberg Germany. #goodfriends #alps #austria #europe #germany @ The Alps, Austria

#wagonwednesday well Volkswagen Wednesday anyway! This was probably 1995ish and yes I had a thick head of hair there on the right. I think that is my only Cousin ( @abramowskigtr ) with the camcorder on the left! I always like my 67 this was: small chrome nerf bar on the front, 125x15’s space saver tires on front and 145x15’s in the back with the adjuster all the way out in the front and 4 splines turned in the back! Dragging the pan in the 90’s and I was maybe 20 years old! The good old days! #strunkfabrication #veedubs #lowlifeveedubs #highschoolcar @ Kil-Kare Raceway

Here is some build pics of the #renaultdauphine ! I can tell you this SBC engine could not have gone forward any at all! We have to have the intake manifold machined, I built custom headers, the oil pan had to be clearance for the steering rack and u-joint and a trap door built to pull the distributor! This was my car originally and I had it mocked up with no rear engine cover and a built Corvair engine poking up through the rear and transaxle in the back name “project junk in the trunk” but the guy that owns it now wanted a small block mopar but I knew it wouldn’t fit so I talk him into a SBC! Hope this sheds some light on the car! #strunkfabrication #customframes #custombuiltchassis #wecanbuildyouone #workingclass #bigenginesmallcar

Component making day! We have a busy summer ahead . Trying to get stocked up on brake/clutch pedal boxes, our super low 33/34 front crossmembers and some other parts that need preparing. It is getting hard to get part right now and it forces us to have to bounce around from job to job till back ordered parts get here. I don’t like bouncing around but we have to keep moving forward! #strunkfabrication #droppedaxleproductions #supportlocalhotrodshop #hotrodframes #customframes #customchassisbuilttoorder

A week or so back I posted about a tube axle and wishbones and how people say you can’t run them together. Well if you ever wondered how much an old Ford I-Beam axle twists.... here ya go! They twist a lot. Not a rube axle will not flex like this! So does this mean you can’t use them? Not at all but I like to bring in the pivot points so the front suspension can articulate more. So the closer you can get the ends of the wishbones on a tube axle..... the better it will function. If you shove the wishbone ends way out it puts more stress on the mounts and could cause the mounts to Tear away from the frame ( depending on how good they are welded) . Remember the original Ford wishbone was NOT split so it pivoted freely with zero bind! Tube axles do function better as a 4 bar ( but who really like the look of that too much) . Remember folks when it comes to suspension.... there is never a perfect setup for every drive condition or track. There are better setups for specific uses! You can read books all you want but in reality... a car on the street doesn’t need or even cycle through much suspension travel! It’s like book smarts ...and street smarts.... one is great in a class room and the other will get you down the road! The great debate will still continue between tube VS I -bean axle with wishbones. #strunkfabrication #hotrodchassis #fordwishbones #transversesprings #traditionalhotrods

***FORSALE*** helping a buddy sell some cars that is not on social media. 1931 Chevy 5 window coupe complete! Is NOT currently running. Doors shut great but will need some wood or make new steel structure. Does have title (currently being processed) . I have seen this car and it is not bad for a Chevy but it is a project.

04/28/2021

I hate putting 32 ford fuel tanks on Model A Ford frames! I mean I really HATE it! There are a bunch of reasons why I strongly dislike doing this! One of the biggest is that a Model A body is totally flat on the bottom ( unlike a 32 Ford with a kick up in the back for the ACTUAL FUEL TANK) and this means dropping the tank down making it look like a sagging droopy loaded diaper! I really try to steer customers away from this but a few still want a deuce tank on the back! It really looks awful when a deep extra capacity tank is used. BUT since the customer is always right (occasionally and insists) I built a jig finally to do this! Although I kind throw up in my mouth a little as I am welding this up! 😁 it helps when the lower rear body reinforcement is removed so the tank can be raised about 2”! ............Did I say I HATED this mod...... Oh ....ok well I really do ! #thecustomerisalwaysright #evenwhentheyarewrong #itjuslooksbad #yesiwillstilldoit #strunkfabrication #modelah #hotrodchassis
