Front tubular a-arm suspension with coilovers complete, Wilwood brakes on, engine and trans mounted, rear corporate 14 bolt installed......getting pretty cool! Changed design to compound turbos. Old Smokey will have a Silver bullet 66mm turbo and a Schwitzer 88mm "Big Brother" Turbo.

War Machine

My new toy, a 1991 BMY Harsco M931A2 6x6 Truck. Its powered by an 8.3 litre Cummins 6CTA Turbodiesel engine (we turned it up a few notches already) The government was nice enough to spend $86,000 completely rebuilding it before selling it to me with only 554 miles on it. Thanks Guys!
It will be getting a mobile command center body, MRAP seats, Mrap wheels, 53" Michelins will replace the little 49 inchers, and full RV treatment on the interior. Exterior will stay all business. This monster runs on Diesel, ATF, used oil, Kerosene, Jet fuel, Biodiesel, Fryer oil and more. Almost like free fuel. Wheeeee! 





Old Smokey





Old Smokey will be the new Chuckles Garage shop truck. I'm taking a different approach with this one as I have past personal builds. This truck will be a sort of "no rules/boundaries build. It will be powered by a built P-pumped 5.9l Cummins 12 valve turbodiesel with approximately 800hp and 1600ft lbs of torque. The motor and transmission are being built by our neighbors Total Performance Diesel. Suspension is full tubular a-arms up front, and an adjustable 4-link with watts link out back with Aldan adjustable coilovers at all corners. Will be set up with full road race geometry. Weight distribution will be an even 50/50 split with the engine sunk back halfway past the firewall. Old Smokey will have a full DOM cage and Kirkey full containment roadrace seats. Wheels are 17x9.5 with 255/40/17 and 275/40/17's. More details to follow.....

1930 Ford Tudor

This is a Nailhead powered hotrod I did for a local customer, apart from a faulty fuel pump and battery....he's been driving the crap out of it! Look for it in the upcoming issue of Gasoline Magazine. Paint and body by my homie Brandon at Eastbay Speed and Custom.







Meet Carl Jr.

I just finshed this 1965 Calumet coach for my good friends at Three Twins Ice Cream in Petaluma CA. Its powered by a 5.9 liter Cummins turbodiesel and is pretty much awesome.

Working Late......





Old Equipment

I'm a big fan of old tools and machines. I just scored this Doall Bandsaw that was used at the Benicia Armory during and post WW2. It was missing some parts, but after some fabrication of new ones, and some wiring...it now runs like a swiss watch.

Post 3four fenderless? Sure.

This will be a tastefully done 41 Chevy truck done up in a dry lakes style. Power will be from a 327 with hilborn injection and all kinds of tasty period bits. The nose will be similar to the Chrisman coupe. This should be fun.

Meet Carl





We don't just do hotrods and customs....This is Carl. We built him from a rusty old east coast short bus, and he is now the proud mascot of Three Twins Ice Cream. Carl sports a custom raised roof, stainless planter boxes, all aluminum diner style interior, and solar cooling system.

FYI...this ice cream is really tasty.
