Fill me in on the hotrod!!!
The hot rod is a 1941 Chrysler New Yorker two door coupe.
All stainless steel chassis with an 04 Cobra IRS. Power will be a 496 BBC with with sequential fuel injection. Transmission will be a 4 speed automatic with overdrive. Coupled to that will be a GearVendors overdrive unit for double overdrive. So 600 FT/LBS of torque and hopefully 20 MPG to boot.

Oh yeah, and the car should even look cool as the whole front snout has been cut off and fitted with a custom shaped clip using 37 Ford headlights.

About 5 years still left on the rod and about two years coming up on the house so should be ready by 2020. Maybe.

Bungalow- Two New Stories From Design To Build


Man oh man...I tried to find fault with your work...but there just isn't anything even remotely there a guy can find to criticize. What a spectacular frame!

Ahhh...but you need to spell of coArse..of coUrse. Jeez, you'd think a Chevy guy would know that!!!

Now, about this house of yours. Put it on the back burner and waste your days and nights away on that incredible machine until it's done!

That thing is just WAAAAAY to cool!

Thanks cocobolo.

Unfortunately, the house has been on the back burner since I got the car. Its time to take care of this "Hainey Place" once and for all. I got to get the house done so when its time to retire it'll be good enough to live in or good enough to sell.

Thanks Jim.

I'll be getting the calipers out when the house goes up so I hope the quality will be as good as the rod.

I changed the slope of the roof and porch roof and also added quoins on the corners of the house.

I also sent the drawings to an engineer for input and hired a surveyor for a new survey and site plan.
