snow makes even the shittiest cars pretty

the snow makes the shittiest cars pretty~ even the horrid Lumina
the trunkless caddy ?

Sean's mighty Subaru makes it to the haven of our home- trapped on the hill


Bronzed Comet



crips work truck




someone in my town went out and got themselves a little project





a pinkish/white Ford






1956 was a great year for cars, not my kinda year, much too flashy, but not quite '57 flashy






i like these lines and the chrome and trim removed stage, simple, no hood clean, drive it !!!




NE!L~ without snow tires

my affliction is stupid german vans with tiny engines

towed the rusty stormtrooper out of the way
so the town home owners can see my side of crazy x 3

if you don't know me~ let me tell you my darkest secret, i bought a parts van for my parts van and now~


the future as seen from the plastic wheel covers of 1985~



after i kicked my own ass around the block and back, for not buying that little tan shorty, i crawled under my '85 and finished putting all those stupid bolts back into the CV joints and stopped the van from exploding every ten minutes with fuel fire flash and topped it off with coolant and called Mike to bitch about vanagons and here's what it sounds like~

some new and some old

this is a great photo of a great car, that i owned when i was a knucklehead, my 1951 Ford club coupe, two door with original flathead V-8
i drove this car home when i bought it and towed it from Seattle to New York State and tinkered and fiddled and sold it, never really drove it around, with this car you couldn't even go to the gas station~ so many people would gather round to talk cars~

everyone likes to watch cars catch on fire

the new title collage is from a show of mine, and real old fashioned photographs of my real old matchbox cars


NE!L ~ squeal !

1967 ford econoline, caravan and vanagon

all week i was debating myself as to whether i could honestly buy a fourth Van
last Wednesday i asked the owner to send more pictures, the van was up in Issaquah, so i couldn't go see it

on Saturday i couldn't fight the urge any longer, called them and found out someone was coming to drive it~ he said he'd call back if it didn't sell. . . damn ! he never called and i should have driv'n right over. . . double damn. . . got away beaut


the guy on the corner who rents the coolest old gas station and pretends to sell used tires, moved this little buggy out front, i don't know why, but it's so cute




he's developed a sweet bit of compound over there~





across the street i see this crazy syncro parked once in awhile and always miss my photo op






after work i walked over and snapped a few







four wheel drive vans with jungle camo








that's a hella big sunflower mutha









they painted right over the decals
