    Fun interesting vehicles you get to work on

    Show off some of the fun interesting stuff you get to work on. Most of mine is all classic car based but anything goes.

    38 Packard... word of mouth that I can actually tune/rebuild old ignitions and carbs properly brought me this one. Was a beautiful car.

      41 chevy, basic tuneup stuff and dialing-in the carb. Forgot what vehicle customer got the seats out of but I thought it was pretty slick how they lay down flat like it was meant to be.

        Biggest and heaviest constant flight auger drill rig in North America.

            50 chevy 3100. I end up doing a lot of work for the classic lowrider scene up here. This is one, 235 straight 6 swap (original was a 216) still 3 on the tree. This one was totally chromes everything axles, suspension, exhaust.. Was over the top. He even chromed the carb.... But, they didnt mask off the inside and it wouldn't run. I went through it, got the chrome out of all the orifices and had to build a little lap to lap the accelerator pump bore so it would get a pump shot again. Also, with the fenton split headers I had to swap out to remflex graphite gaskets (they are 1/4" thick and seal where nothing else can)

                Heres on you dont see everyday.... Probably never again honestly. 56 Chevy extended cab with Camaro? front clip, SBC, rear 4 link etc. I didnt build the cab (56 front with back end of a 58? for the extension) but I did box the frame, rebuild the firewall, fix panhard bar and mount, shave drip rails, patch fenders etc.

                  Takes 7 18 wheeler loads plus a heavy haul truck to move the rig. Each track weights 38k lbs!

                    That's not a wind farm project nearish to Houston is it?

                      Yes. They were renting it from us.

                      No, that was in Alabama on a building foundation site.

                      Where is nearish Houston? We have some smaller rigs in Texas doing wind farm work. New Mexico also..
                      Place I work for imports, sells, services and rents that brand of drill rig. I'm a factory service tech for them. We are not a drilling company, thank god! I have enough shit to deal with as it is.

                        Maybe it was dallasish, Gainesville?

                        My buddy 904_runner is working for kiewit on a wind farm over there.

                          Gainesville is at the top of Texas right next to Oklahoma. As far as i know we don't have any rigs up that way. Are they using drill rigs for the windmill foundations?

                            No idea​​​​​​

                            I just saw kiewit and thought there might be a sliver of a chance there was a connection.

                            To stay on topic, there is a local company who is almost exclusively a sub for PG&E here. They have a feller buncher with a drill head on it, it's knarly as hell. Click image for larger version

                              Ok, I get that it makes big holes in the ground, but can you please share some more details about what makes it special, and maybe give a QRD on ... well... WTF it IS?
