Lyle has always loved cars, not only race cars, but cars in general. Here are a few of his favorites from the last few years. He always
says he is going to keep them, but once they're ready to go, he's ready to start another project. He buys them, fixes them mechanically, and
then sells them to someone who enjoys bodywork, which he definitely doesn't.
Located about a half-block from our house and a half-block from Scott's. Ideal location.
Not a car; not a truck. We call it a Doodlebug. The back of a Model A was welded onto the front of another Model A. This was the result.
1946 Ford Coupe
This was one of the cars Lyle had in high school. Not a recent project, but he looks good in the picture.
Lyle took a lot of his old flathead parts and souped the engine up. Does not sound like a family car.
This car was sold on ebay and went to Germany. Our cars get around more than we do.
A little rust on the quarter panels, but we should all look that good when we're 60 years old?
This car went all the way to Texas on a car hauler.
1959 Ford Galaxy
Chrome fender skirts and factory air conditioning. Lots of class.
1960 Plymouth Valiant
The Valiant had the unique trunk with a continental look to it. Low mileage.
1963 Corvair Monza Convertible
Made by Chevrolet, the Corvair was unique because it had a rear air-ooled engine.
1967 Ford Convertible
Black cars matter. This beautiful car went to Baltimore, Maryland.
1971 Fiat Convertible
A tight squeeze once you're in the car. Tighter than a full-figured woman in xs pantyhose.
A beautiful BIG car. Purchased by the pound, you couldn't afford it.
1983 Mercedes Benz Convertible
Has both a convertible and a hard top.
1941 Chevrolet Pickup
Believe it or not, this truck went all the way to Denmark.
1942 GMC Pickup
This was the blackout model. No chrome because it was World War II. This truck found a new home in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
1946 Ford Pickup
This truck also went to Green Bay. The new owners were going to put a diesel in it.
1953 Ford Pickup
This truck was stored in a barn by a friend. He did the body work and Lyle built a hopped-up flathead with a stroker kit and a 4bbl carb.
1957 Chevrolet Pickup
Powered by a 6-cylinder with a split manifold and Lyle's favorites: Smitty's mufflers.
1970 Ford Pickup
Very low mileage truck. Not an eye-catcher, but a decent truck.
1973 El Camino
A nice Chevrolet with the sleek El Camino lines.
