Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans. This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast. The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model. It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's. After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good. The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley! I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs. I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!! It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car! It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only. $1500.00 firm. firstname.lastname@example.org The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
We're throwing a tooth chipping Birthday Party for some of our best friends on January 19th at Harold's Place USA! (that's San Pedro, CA.) The Real VINNIE VEGAS turns the Big 50!!!! We're also celebrating Jessica's and Rene's (of Helmet Division) Birthday's too!!! I'm not sure who's baking cakes, but there'll be some frosting to be sure!
btw, does anyone have a giant dick sized cake pan I can borrow? ...it's gotta be huuuuuge.
It's been 8 years since we started producing our own "annual" books!
That's a solid DIY footprint by any measure. No advertisements. No sponsors. Just our own amateur photography collected and assembled in book form.... you remember print don't you? Let me introduce you to this years book; 100 pages, full color, perfect binding, photography from Nov/Dec 2016 all the way through Dec 2017.
This year we decided to call the book what it is, THE DIY'CLINE because over those 8 years, we've seen a lot of grassroots simply disappear or die. That, sadly is a negative... which in turn makes us value and cherish the positive all the much more. Why we carry a torch, and a camera, to the small events, shows, parties, runs, and rides. Why we build giant Brobots to burn in the desert and spend the time cooking and donating free chili dinners to events. Why we skip the bigger stuff that's covered enough elsewhere. Why we sing songs about Kool Aid. Why we keep keeping on!
Quick rundown on where we took pictures this year; The Alien Run 2017, Run To The Hills, The Beaver Moon Campout, Giant Rock Run No.6, El Diablo Run, Kitmas 2016 and 2017, bands, gigs, halloween parties, weddings, birthdays, Taco Moto Tuesdays (and there was a lot of them) and the musically infused Taco Moto Saturdays... and throw in some drag queens too. Imagine all of our blog and social media accounts throwing up on your face in your sleep. That's this years book. Sounds Yummy right?
And, there's been more than a few people asking for us to reprint the BOBBY shirt, so here's your wish come true!!! (remember, we only screen super small runs of stuff, so see it now, you might not see it tomorrow...)
