Had the car running pretty dang good for a bit. Driving home from the last show of our season motor just quit, no noise nothing. Pulled the valve covers and saw a valve spring that looked compressed. Pulled the head and number 2 hole is gone.

 Ouch!
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Restoring a 1949 gmc panel, bought it in Selah. Freaking love this thing. Having three kids, 4 dogs, full time job and 2 businessís makes my free time pretty slim.


Currently off the frame. Canít wait to get the body back on.

It came out in 4 pieces. It's been broke for a while as there was lots of carbon built up in places. Just ordered a set of 205 aluminum heads and will be getting a stroker kit for it soon. Hoping to be able to salvage the block but everything else is going bye bye. Shooting for 575 horse.

Looks salvageable  :chuckle:

We did a job in north Seattle in what was a vacant lot next to an auto repair shop. Probably dug about thirty in similar shape out of the ground. They were laying all over and it'd freak me out every time, my first thought was always it had shot out of the machine.

Everything inside that block was salvageable.  Went to the salvage yard. Block is headed to the machine shop for inspection and hopefully the needed work. Number 2 hole is cracked so at a minimum it's getting a sleeve. After the machine shop I'll know more about where I am at.

Also not necessarily a hot rod, but itís been a fun dad/daughter project. I wish my first rig was this nice!
.

Had one just like it in high school, cool truck! I bought the house across the street kitty corner to you so I see that truck daily!
Go hawks
