Today was delivery day for the #pekingtoparis 1937 Cadillac rally car build. From concept to reality in just over 8 months. 600+ trouble free shake down miles this last week and now it is on a boat overseas for its first race around the Baltic Sea. Wish the owner luck!
@poor_boy_jeremy Wrapped up this little pickup project last week, bobbed the rear fenders and tightened up a bunch of little odds and ends. This thing is ready to head to paint!
Quick little visor install on this 57 Chevy pickup
Just completed some wiring and mechanical work on this 32.
Your March Meet 6.00 AA/FA CHAMPION!!!
Man what a weekend down at the March Meet. Our friends @nitro_tramp ran a career best 5.98 at 240 mph! Unofficially the only non-winged fuel altered to run in the 5's. He's in the the final round today, wish the local boys luck! #fuelalteredsforever
Delivery day for this 67 Impala. We dropped in a fresh crate motor, dressed it up with chrome and topped it with a @holleyperformance Sniper EFI system. We also plumbed the full fuel system, did full exhaust and installed some @dakota_digital VHX Gauges.
Just wrapped up replacing a leaky oil pan gasket on this Brizio built 32 for a good friend of ours.
Delivery day for this 37 Roadster. We just wrapped up a @holleyperformance Sniper EFI system with a Holley in-tank pump setup and a Holley Dual Sync distributor. Ready for spring cruising 👍
Something for everyone over in the main shop last night. Just delivered that 1959 Impala this morning after we completed some AC and brake repairs.
We had one project in Autorama and it took first in its class. Older build that we updated with a new #ls3 drivetrain, modernized the gauges with @dakota_digital VHX, fixed some wiring and set it up with some new @schottwheels . Owner had the new paint job put on.
Another @holleyperformance Sniper EFI conversion underway!
Convertible top finished up on the #cadillac rally car. Thanks to Biner's upholstery for working around our deadline and doing the install remotely at our shop so we can continue thrashing. #pekingtoparis #vintagerally
Just delivered this 1960 Ford F-250, we gave the engine an external overhaul and converted the transmission to an AOD with a @lokarinc shifter.
Another spy shot of the Cadillac. Custom dual exhaust, fuel system done with a water separator in line. Nick has this thing about ready to fire up. Early next week for sure. #pekingtoparis #cadillac #vintagerally

This is the rear-most body mount brace under the trunk of a 1952 Buick we're building. Jeremy got the replacement brace hand made and installed today, now the car is off to paint.
Getting the most out of this weather while it lasts!
Caddy rally car build catching some sun today. #pekingtoparis #balticclassicrally #cadillac #vintagerally
Sorry for the lack of updates, we've been up against the wall getting the 1937 Cadillac rally car build ready for its first race. Here is the motor fresh off the dyno. This thing needs to be on a boat at the end of March headed overseas and we need to shake it down for a couple thousand miles first.
