These are Franks collection of, as he likes to say, "Special Interest Cars."  We now have five cars in the family, and only have a single car garage.
 
All of the cars are parked in the driveway under covers and other wrappings to keep them from being harmed by the weather. Our driveway looks like a used car lot, so I can no longer poke fun at folks that have numeroud cars parked on ther lawn and driveways. We have joined the club.

This is the third car car in Frank's collection, and it is by far the brute of the bunch. It has a 355ci small block chevy/5spd tranny/355 limited slip rear and so much more.
 
Here are a couple of pictures of the car. Hopefully you can see how nice it is. It goes from point A to B extremely fast.

This Galaxie is the second addition to Frank's ever growing collection of "projects" It is a 1964 Ford Galaxie Lightweight. I am told, (by Frank no less) that it is worth keeping.
 
He bought it over the internet from a person in PA, and had the car shipped, (enclosed trailer) to our house in Virginia. It sits in the garage pampered and well kept, and at $7.00 a gal for gas, I am assuming, well fed.
 
Here is a run down of what the car has.
- All fiberglass front end,bumpers, and trunk lid
- 406FE/Tripower/12:1 comp/BM C6/3500stall/MSD/4:10 posi
- Factory installed "Drag Pack" option.
 
Car is really in good shape and seems to have been well cared for. Hope it appreciates in value. It might be our retirement nest egg.

From A Basket Case To The Road

This is Frank's new car

This was Frank's first undertaking. It is a 1978 Datsun 280Z that was literally a basket case when he towed it home. The car sat for 3 yrs and would not run, stop, or do anything a car is supposed to do.

He basically took the entire car apart, cleaned, fixed, repaired, or replaced a majority of the parts on the car. Everything from brakes to gas tank to engine and tires was gone over with a fine toothed  comb as they say. Although it was painted, frank says it stills has a "3 foot paint job" and still needs to be buffed out. Frank says he will give the car to be so as I can drive it on clear dry days. I'll wait to see what happens.

Car had all the rust cut out and  repaired and was painted a sort of "Electric Blue" I call it "Ecclectic Blue," sort of fits the overall theme of this place. On the horizon is a small block chevy transplant and turbo 350 trans swap.

I will update not only the car situation, but will update the training shedule and what meets are on the schedule for 2005-2006
