We finally finished all of the repairs on the 1931 Chevrolet Independence. With a few less oil leaks, rust repairs, working door handles, and a functional cooling system it can now be enjoyed as it should. Nobody would mind keeping this one around.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by on Saturday, especially the MidCoast Road Rally. It was so much fun to watch everyone try their skills on our remote control car race track in the back and give the Burgies Grumman Olson coffee truck a steady line of customers for it’s first time out of the garage. We have never had this many people or vehicles here at one time before.
Finishing up the preparations on the new Ford Mustang Boss 302S for it’s debut at the Kansas Speedway this weekend.

The other three race cars you can order are the Ford Mustang Boss 302R, Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, and Fiesta B-Spec.
After: 1954 Nash Metropolitan. This great little car has been fun to have around. It is amazing that the vacuum tube AM radio functions properly. Vintage Firestone white wall tires completes the 50′s look on this little car. Is it American or British? It seems that everyone loves it no matter what you call it.
The finishing touches are being done on the Sprite after the happy owner drove the car for the first time since 1967.
Now resprayed in 1955 Thunderbird Blue, this car is ready for chassis restoration before the new little owner takes their first drive.
The Italians have been coming out of the woodwork recently. If you have an Italian car that you want serviced before your driving season or even one that has more special needs, bring it by and we will take care of it.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Mustang Club of Central Iowa’s 50th Mustang Celebration at our shop today.

Designed in conjunction with Ford’s design team these six volt electric cars were created to help bring in families to the Ford dealerships to test drive Ford’s new Thunderbird.
