Today, I had (strong emphasis on had!!)a small nest-egg that I was to use for the exhaust system of my 1960 Ford Falcon hotrod to make it one step closer to being finished. So, off to Mustangs Unlimited, to get the necessary parts. Well, doncha know, the Home Depot store is 1/2 mile farther down the road, and here I am with money in my pocket, and I'm thinkin' "You know, I could get my very own scroll saw, and a 3/8" Forstner bit, and a couple of #44 drill bits and a little farther up the street is the local Scout store, and I could really use a couple more Pinewood kits to go with the spiffy new wheels I got from DerbyDoc (thanks for the flames Doc)"....Looks like the Falcon's gonna wait a little longer
So tell me, Doctor, when's this madness gonna end?

WOW!!! Now that is a Stocker. I like the exposed front axle. Thats actually pretty cool. Offset body, White SS wheels, Bare wood, I dont think that a car could be built any cooler than that. Awesome job!!! And, your about the scariest newbie that Ive seen in a long time. Youve already posted a clinic on how to build a test track. Welcome once again, and your a great addition to the leagues.
Thanks, Doc. It's not too easy to get creative ideas for a "door wedge", and the exposed axle is purely unintentional. Got a little rambunctious with the belt sander . Caused a little " mech- anics' language" to escape . I've since covered the axle with some wood filler, but don't know if it will remain in place when I pull the axle out of the hole
