About “Rose”

I bought this about 2 years ago. The interior was shot and the motor was a piece of crap. So I started to slowly piece together the interior. Seats where first, then the dash front and back, then center console, then door panels. After i got the interior done I threw some nice bullet hole rims and fat tires on it.

About “Matty”

I bought this Mat off of Ebay 6 years ago, it was the first car I ever purchased off of Ebay. It was a runner and driver, but just barely. Its been slowly going through a transformation. Im hoping to finaly have it done this year, so I can get it on the road. Im not building a show car, just one I can have fun in.
