W2kj's 1967 Chevelle
« on: January 21, 2013, 12:09:56 AM »


i've been chipping away at this project for some time now; haven't really worked on it hard; especially waiting for the texas summers to end. my brain injured buddy; dj; and i can't always get our personal lives to allow us to work on it as often as we would like to. but here is a video showing that we finally got to be able to take it around the block. woo-hoo!  

the one wheeled wonder smoked it's first burnout! the video.

80 MS points for a halo tshirt- what a rip off. when i heard about game related clothing i thought it would be helmets of armour or somin decent, instead its just the same old clothes with different pictures on. shame


yeah - they look pretty lame.

hopefully they'll add some better stuff later.

Gears stuff & i'm in - only to even out my points  wink.gif

Alright�as a lot of y'all know (and for those who don't) I had a major stroke in 2003.  I lost the ability to speak and my right side was paralyzed.  My sons and their friend (EverestX) modded an xbox for me to use to help me rehabilitate myself.  I hooked into X-S in 2005 and got into the graphics forum�and it also was instrumental in furthering more rehabilitation.  Anyway�my aphasia is a real problem�so if I don't make any sense; it's just my "word salad" that scrambles my speech and text.  So bear with me.



I bought my Chevelle in 1988 when I lived in the high desert in Apple Valley, CA after my car was stolen.  In 1990 we drove it to get back to Texas.  I, my wife, and my 2 sons, and two chow-chows packed into the car.  Drove it for a couple o' years�and it O.D.'ed.  Fast forward to 1998 (? The exact year escapes me.)  The a/c unit in the house takes a crap in July�didn't have the funds to get it fixed.  So I'm talkin' to EvX's dad (Pat) and he wants to buy the car for right about what I needed to pay to fix it.  So I sold it to 'em.  Then a few years later I bought a 76 Malibu �beautiful car!  Fast forward again�between Pat and EvX and myself think that I would like to have my 67 back, and Pat and I make a deal because he wanted to have a big car for Ev to drive�well anyway, I traded for my 76 Malibu to them for getting my 67 Chevelle + $1000 bucks in return.  It was a good trade�all of the body bushings, and the suspension were done (they were doing a resto.)  They used some top notch parts to do it.  On top of that; the interior was gutted.  ( As a sidelight�after the trade; about a year after EvX is driving it he has a pretty gnarly wreck�he's in the ICU and wakes up after a day or so�first thing out of his mouth was "John's (me) is gonna kill me."  He didn't care that he was in the hospital, and that his car was wrecked; he was worried I'd be pissed!  : )



Well; two years ago I built a Chevy 350; with the help of my best friend, and recently I finally felt like I could tackle getting this car on the road again.  This is the year!   I've been working on it quite a bit lately, and hope to be driving it April (of course�the interior and paint and body will have to take a while longer, ya know how the economy is.)  i know it looks pretty ratty...but it is a solid car!



I'm gonna start this wip with a couple o' recent pix�

this is what I would like it to look like...

Awsome, dude.  65-67 Chevelle's are straight up one of the sexiest cars ever built.

Good luck with your project, and your recovery  smile.gif

Awesome car man! there's a lot of potential right there smile.gif

I must say I'm envious how clean those southern chassis stay... here in the north east we salt the roads in the winter to keep the roads from icing up and it causes cars to rot out something nasty in just a few short years. I mean my car is a 95 and clean and that's astounding to most people around here.  if you see a car from the 60s or 70s that's as clean as yours... it means it was imported  laugh.gif

               they went over the Botswana desert/salt lake and the used banged up cars (no doors etc) but Hammond loved his so much he took it back to England laugh.gif it should be on youtube some where I think it's a special episode.

               it was an opel (vauxhall) kadett. smashing little motor.

botswana episode of top gear highly recommended to anyone who hasnt seen it, as is the winter special, infact just watch them all, that's an order.

Just read all your blurb in the first post, how is EverestX? we used to chat on aim but I don't have it anymore
