Crazy Mods!



1940 Ford, modified by a Minnesota mail carrier

Shane Lance

I have seen some crazy modifications out there.  Some mods are subtle like an old car set on a newer frame for the disc brakes, power steering, and a smoother suspension.  Other mods are outrageously obvious.  I knew a girl once that took an old Ford Mustang and put it on a monster truck 4X4 frame.  It was surprisingly cool.  I have dreams of mild mods myself.  For example, I have a 1979 Ford F150 rolling chassis.  I have my eyes peeled for a 1940-1958? cab and bed to throw on there.  Wouldn't that be cool?  

If anyone out there has or sees a cool mod, send me a pic and some information on it at  Let's show it off!



Save the cars!

Shane Lance

When I look through pictures of old cars like this, it feels like there should be background music by Celine Dion.  Like the commercial that shows abused little animals and makes you want to break out your wallet and save them all.  You see these poor, neglected old cars all over the place.  Rusting away in fields and back yards (including mine).  Just look at them.  Longing to be cared for and brought back to health.  Begging to be racing down the road once again showing off and turning heads everywhere they go.  I wish I had the money to scoop them up and fix them all.  Can you imagine how happy this car could look with a little love and support?

Someday Cars

How often do you find yourself saying,"Someday i am going to ...."?  Especially when it comes to restoring cars.  "Someday I am going to fix up that old car."   See an old car sitting in a field or by a house.  Stop in and tell the owner you'd like to buy it.  "Nope. Sorry.  Someday I am going to fix it up" is the usual answer.  Then you see it sit there for years and years untouched.  The sad part is, I have several of those someday cars myself.  I keep vowing to quit saying "Someday".  This has got to stop!  Let's make someday today.  What if I start with 20-30 minutes a day for a little while?  Hmm.  I think I will give it a shot.  How many "Someday" cars do you have?  How long have you had those 'Someday" cars?  Let me know so I don't feel like I am the only one ha ha.
