POSTER: Disciple of Pain
VEHICLE: 1963 Ford Fairlane 500
GOAL: Finish a project for once. Make a low-budget rat-rod style driver for fun and probably profit.
DIFFICULTY: Nothing crazy. Motor is good, no major rust. I'm prepared to tackle everything else. Some welding on the body and possibly swapping the odd-ball 221 V8 for a 289 or 302.
COSTS: Car: $600. Parts, Supplies, Transport, etc: Spent - $100. Planned Future Expenses (for making it a safe, reliable driver without swapping the motor/trans) - $250. Total - <$1000

POSTER: Disciple of Pain
VEHICLE: 1974 Volkswagen Station Wagon Kombi Walkthrough (AKA a non-camper VW Bus)
GOAL: Something to bop around town in during restoration. Eventually I would like to make it into a "weekender" camper (no pop-top). Possibly with some Camper model parts, some stuff I will make myself.
DIFFICULTY: Not too bad at all, but who knows. Its a VW, so nothing is too difficult.
COSTS: Bus will cost either $600 (with just the front seats and no rear interior), or $700 (with all of the interior parts out of a '73 European model Westphalia camper).
LINK: I'll make a thread soon.


This is kind of a placeholder, right now I just have $100 down on it until I get paid and can go pick it up on Friday.

It doesn't have a windshield currently installed, so it should be an interesting 11.3 mile drive home (it is in my town, I will try to stick to side-streets as much as possible).
