Okay then lets start the swap list.

I need a good running used 140 engine.

Nothing special...just starts and runs.

I just bought a '66 Monza for its drive train, but I was thinking about having a You Pull It Party for everything else. The front is smashed, so I'm not sure it's any good to anyone as a complete car, but there will be the interior, dash, windows, etc.

alpha 1906 Maybe just "slap" on a 69 ish Corvette or first gen F body GM front clip with some kind of spoiler, MACO paint, drop in some race seats, tune up the suspension add wheels and tires, tweek the carb linkage a bit and run it.

Less than a week away! Keep the RSVP's coming so we have enough Dog's!

We will be discussing rebuilding the vary hard to find, Early and FC ignition switches, that will-are to be available at California Corvairs.
Also Flywheel rebuilding and FC bumper Guard transformation's from Early Car bumper guards, among other things.

I'm already working on the next event at The Cave! Powder-coating at home. We will powder-coat small parts right there.

There seems to always be something fun going on in the cave!

What a nice gathering. Had about 20 people who braved the showers and attend. We never got into any demonstrations that I had planned to do. But instead shared a lot of experiences and commradry. Had plenty of dogs. One uninvited, but this made for a nice gathering in the Man-Cave. A couple people volunteered to have presentations of some of their projects to share in the future. We'll surely do this again. I can also open up the house for more comfortable seating.

I was so busy that I only had a chance to snap two photos after everyone left! Hopefully others will have some to share.

Big thanks.
