This is not mine but I went to a local car show and there was an amazing Cooper S there with a Uber frame and a 427 in it. I was hoping somebody might know the car and tell us some more about it?

Sorry about the cell phone photos and he was just leaving. That's all I could get. Beautiful work!

In reply to David S. Wallens : I had nothing to do one day so I figured I would cut a car in half.  It just happened to be a 74 MGB GT.  I should have made wall art out of it and called it a day, but no, I just had to put it back together 10 inches wider and with a 1UZ-FE and Corvette front suspension.  The bodywork is done, and just more sanding and paint to go. The engine hasn't been run and absolutely not thought to the interior. I have a bone stock GT in white, so I'll paint this one white also. Hoping to cause some confusion around town.  Maybe if this works out I'll do the same with one of my Jensen GTs. (No freaking way!)

I hope this thread isn't limited to cars. I'm building a steam locomotive themed meat smoker. Here's where I am on it

That build is so correct in every way.

I noticed the 70s Plymouth race car.  Is it a real Richard Petty race car? Since know one asked.

Pulled out of years in storage.
Picked this up from the owner from southern Calif to bring it to Oregon. He asked me to work on it for him.
New engine, new clutch, fuel pump, etc, etc...a year later it was ready and delivered it back.

When fender flares are just too much work.  Fantastic!
