Hey everyone. Scrapy's back with a new Cadillac. Well, not exactly new... I picked up a 1960 Series 62 Coupe last week. Baby blue on blue, power windows and seats. Most of it still works good too. Even the original Wonder Bar radio still has some life left in it :) . The body is fairly solid and most of the chrome looks good so I can't complain. I got a good deal on her and I'm happy. I'll post pics soon.

Thanks guys. Good to be back. Right now I'm just getting her tuned up. It was mostly original when I got it :D . Updated to a new style altornator allready cause the original was on it's last leg. Otherwise just standard issue revise of ignition components. The rest of it's stock. I'm keeping my plans simple for the time being. Not like the last car. I'm more interested in a nice reliable cruiser for now. I'm gona bag it with in the next couple of weeks. For me it's must do mod. After that I'm gona make a cool set of side pipes and hook up an injected flame thrower system. Update to a modern stereo, and of course a nice set of wide whites. So with in a month or so I can have the car were I want it pretty much. I'll be doing brakes tomarrow so I'll snap a couple pics while I'm at it.

Hey Scrappy! :)

Good to see you back. I actually ran into the new owner of your old car at E-town over the summer. :)

Good to see you back. Now... Where are those pics??? :D

Billy boy. Good to see you man. Was woundering if you were still around. How's my old girl doing anyway? I miss that car. Looks like your T56 project came out nice. Very classy.

Looks sick man! :devil: I love it! :D

Can't wait to see MORE pics... :)

So what does that thing have for a motor and tranny? Is it like a 330v8 and a powerglide? I don't know a thing about the old cars... Pretty sure that was pre-th350's & th400's... :confused:

It's got a 390cid with 325hp backed by a hydromatic. I think it's a 3 speed. It shifts a bit weird. Sometimes you don't even notice it grabs 3rd. I found a company that makes adapter kits for th400's and manuals so my options are open if need be. Finally got the brakes working right. They were so out of adjustment it was scary to drive. Got a new carb on its way so by Monday this thing should be running solid again. Then it's bags and a radio and I'll be cool :D
