It has been a while since I did a project update on the 55 Bel Air. At this point though the car is done and on the road again. There are still some small bugs to work out and some final detailing for the upcoming indoor show season, but the car my grandparents have owned for 46 years is back on the road from its 10+…
This targeted Instagram ad made my day.
Last week I also drove an R8 with a manual transmission and an open-gate shifter.
Came in from pulling out a Challenger Scat Pack. He said, “that clutch is kind of stiff.”
On Monday I went out for my second lesson in driving a manual car, and by the end of it I felt pretty confident that I could drive any three-pedaled car if I had to (though I’m not gonna be impressing anyone any time soon).

The big things have been getting the hardtop “flappers” adjusted and working, getting all the glass and trim on and then reassembling the front end of the car. Currently waiting on new hood hinges to shop up to be…
This has to be the stupidest thing I’ve heard.

So, I’m DD’ing the BMW convertible these days, since my wife and I are down to *only* 3 cars temporarily (lol). Traffic has been heavy all week, thanks to rain, so I’ve been dealing with a lot of stop and go traffic in a stick shift car.
Little update on the 55 Chevy. Since the last update (Here), not much visible progress. Got the clutch linkage hooked up, started going through the wiring again, started putting the dash trim back on, and then lastly my grandfather and I pulled the windshield in. Started testing the switches and dash lights, it was…
