      Barry and his Alfa

      Civil Engineer did the work on restoring this over a span of eleven years.

      He also knows plenty about working with wood. Did the wood dash replacement himself.

      Nice!

      Early Ranchero. Older gentleman driving sez in a couple weeks it'll be all livened up with new paint and body massage.

      Gorgeous '68 Camino.

      Michael is the owner and did all the work except for the paint. Completely restored. He's had it since 2004

      Right down the street from Doug and the 30's pickup



      is his friend Steve and his 40's one-of-a-kind COE pickup




      Retired carpenter who can build anything and he and Steve love to turn their talents to vehicles.

      The result in Steve's case:







      He needed a pickup and made one for his carpentry business. That is SOME pickup!

      Might have posted some of these before, but c'est la vie.

      When was the last time you saw one of these?

      Yeah, I was 99% sure it wasn't real when I saw it posted in this thread. Just seemed a little off (but not too much) and I don't care how much money you have, you don't park a GTO on the side of the street and leave it unattended.

      Some older pictures (couple of years old) I've taken. Also from Oslo, Norway. I don't think I've posted them? They may be of interest to some, and the rest can just ignore them.
