Some of the "projects/parts" laying around the property.







Not sure what he does with this large crane, but it sure is anchored throughout the property.



Ok, this was a strange vehicle.

Transfer case in-out/hi-lo. Tobz has a unique wagon in FM that explains it pretty well.

Not just one 4 door wagon, but he had two that I could find.



He restores and repairs them, but don't judge a yard by it's junk. Here's his very clean shop.

A couple of projects he's working on.













I sure want this disc brake/rack and pinion setup.



Cool gas pump.



A cable car?



Time for lunch.



Hmmm, new project? Wonder how much? Mrs. V says no!



Guess I'll have to look at things from afar.



It was a beautiful day and I got to see alot of neat vehicles to give me hope for my '56 pickup.

Memories.....
this is like what was given to me by the neighbor lady after I packed her up to move from Anchorage to BC, Canada. Got my first stink finger in one like this.
Was also the first engine I rebuilt, old F head.

Great. Just what I need. Another thread on ADV about cool shit that I really dig.

I got it bad for an older Willys pickup. I admire the older powertrains, but they just won't cut it for "real world" driving on the highway. I'd like (someday) to get a recoverable derelict and throw a Toyota Tundra or Nissan Titan driveline under it.

This might sound odd... but how are they do drive for taller guys? I figure there's plenty of headroom, but how's the leg room?

The ghosts at the old Toledo Parkway plant are stirring and they are not happy.

hey vtwin, do your self a favor and convert to 11" brakes. If you stick to the 9" most of the parts are available at any fork lift company. Good luck adjusting them!
