1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator

This is the car that started it all for me. I bought this car in 1991 while I was on vacation with my parents in Missouri. It is not an actual Eliminator, just a clone. I did actually own a real Eliminator at one time, but I had more fun driving this one so I sold it. I have spent many a nights, weekends and paychecks getting this car to where it is today. I have done all the work myself (I did have help on it from a couple of dedicated friends.) This is the first car I ever did body work on. I learned a lot of things while painting this car.

I do occasionally drag race this car and it puts up fairly respectable times for a 3700 pound car. It has a 351W and an automatic transmission.


1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Where do I start about this car. I bought this car in 1992. It needed a lot of work. In 2006 when I finally finished it, I had replace every piece of sheet metal on the car except for the rocker panels, roof, half of the trunk floor, firewall, and shock towers. When I finished the car I gave it to my wife as an anniversary gift. I figured she should have it since she was the only reason that it didn't end up in a salvage yard somewhere. She kept me motivated on it when I was ready to scrap it and move on.

This car has a 351W and a toploader 4 speed.

1967 Mercury Cougar

I bought this car out of Kansas City from a guy that was going to cut the back end off the car and graft it on to a Maverick. Weird. I drug the car home and put a 390 and a C6 in it. I have all the parts rounded up to turn it into a 4 speed car and plan to do so soon.

1985 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

This is a somewhat rare car with Ford only producing 5,549 GT convertibles in 85. The last of the carbuerated Mustangs. V8 with a 5 speed. It is a fun little car to roll around in. This one is my wife's and it is the first performance car she owned. We actually bought this car while we were looking for our first house. We had to wait to buy a house because we spent our down payment on the ragtop, but I think it was worth it. The only way this car will ever go away is by natural disaster or by prying the title out of her cold dead fingers.

2006 Ford Mustang GT

My wife bought me this car for losing 40 pounds and getting in better shape. It is a really sweet car and is almost like brand new. Only 22,000 miles on it when I bought it.

1969 Dodge Dart Swinger

I built this car for my Dad. I bought the car at a swap meet in 2004 and gave it to him as a birthday present. I then proceeded to rebuild the car over the next couple of years. This was a new experience. Up until this car the majority of my experience had been on Ford products. Mopar is a totally different cat all together. Couple that with deciding to go with a big block 4 speed setup and you got yourself a whole lotta fun.

This car has a 440 and a 4 speed transmission.

1994 Ford Mustang GT

This is my brother's car. I think he got this car in 1996. It is a 302 5 speed combo. Runs decent, but it looks really good. I didn't do the paint on this one, but it was done by a local body shop that does real nice work. The only problem this car has is it is somewhat of an animal magnet. My brother has hit 2 or 3 deer with it and I have hit a dog. The deer were a lot harder on the car than the dog was.

1967 Mercury Cougar XR7

This is a friend of mine's car. It is a neat little car. Stroked Windsor power plant, power glide tranmission. It gets after it pretty good. He and I painted this car in 2007. I hope I never, ever have to paint another black car. We block sanded until we thought our arms were going to fall off. It was worth it though. The paint is really nice. Some day I am going to find a 66 or 67 fairlane to buy and trade him out of this jewel.

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

This is a another friend of mine's car. This one is the real deal. He and I painted this car back in 2002. This is the second car I ever painted. It is a 351W 4 speed car. Gulf Stream Aqua in color. He has had this car since we were in high school and this is the car that made me start searching for a muscle car of my own.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro

This is a another friend of mine's car. I also didn't paint this one, or do any of the work on it. I know very little about this car, but it looks and sounds good. He and I make a lot of the same car shows and have known each other since high school.

1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport

This is a another friend of mine's car. Blown, tubbed and bad to the bone. What else can I say?

1969 Ford Mustang Grande Coupe

The Grande coupe was basically a Mustang coupe with Mach 1 style interior. I bought this car with one thing in mind, rebuild it and sell it. That is exactly what I did. It was a 351W with an automatic transmission.

1969 Ford Mustang Coupe

This is another car that I bought to build and sell. Which I did successfully, but I didn't make much money on it. Coupes just don't bring much money.

1992 Ford Mustang GT

I bought this car as a daily driver and had it for several years. I sold the car to get the money for another project. Sometimes I miss having that car because it was fun to drive 302 5 speed car.

1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator

This car is an actual Eliminator. I don't own this car anymore. I didn't really enjoy driving it. It was also a 351C 4V 4 speed car. In my opinion, about the only thing a 351C does well is anchor a boat. Because I didn't want to get away from the original engine, I chose to sell the car.

1969 Mercury Cougar XR7

This is my uncle's car. When he retired from the Navy, he asked me to help him find a car. This is what we came up with. Aside from putting a new under dash wiring harness, some new interior pieces, and a spoiler on it, it is basically the way it was when we bought it. It probably needs a paint job, but he is trying to sell it now so hopefully I won't have to paint it.

This car has a 351W and an automatic transmission
