A '67 Impala 4 door is a friggin' tank!
Before all the bad weather this past week, I decided to move the Impala out back to the tent and bring the Nova (that's painted) in to the garage. A 454/Th400 '67 Impala is friggin' HEAVY!! I used my truck to drag it around most of the way then pushed the last 30' or so. I almost blew a gasket pushing that thing. Since the car doesn't have brakes hooked up yet, I put a 4"X4" down to catch the car. Well, that didn't work. I tore out the back part of the tent when the car ran over the 4"X4". Then my truck couldn't get traction to pull it back into the tent, so I had to park the truck and use it as an anchor point to come-along it back in to the tent. I bet I could win $10 grand if I had a video of the whole thing.
As soon as the weather gets decent, I'm going to start in on the body work and get this thing moving along. The goal for 2011 is to complete all the projects we currently have.
Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.
