I am in the process of creating a page to show you some of the cars that I have come across in the last few months you can see the variety that Manitoba has to offer by checking out my Cool Finds Page
There is a long story to the appearance of the car into my Garage. I was a local car show at one of the malls on a Wednesday night early in July. I was talking to a few friends stating that I was interested in a second project to my Fairlane
As I was saying that I was thinking of a Convertible might be what I want to start, along came this fellow out of nowhere and he says..."if you want a Convertible, I have one and if you want it ..I will give it to you"
Well far be it from me to look a gift horse in the mouth....... On the following Saturday, I think it was the 5th or so of July, 2002, I took the ride with my wife to have a look at the car. About an hours drive south west and I arrived at a homestead with a number of out buildings.
I figured I had to be in the right place for outside was a cool dandelion yellow 60's Cab-Over Pickup with some awesome side pipes... My new friend lead me to a qounset to have a look at the car.... over in the corner... dark and dusty sat this car.... well I am sure I started drooling right then and there.... I looked at my wife and she knew I was going to have the car in the driveway as soon as I could. The following pages will chronicle the trials and tribulations I have gone through over the winter of 2002-2003 in the search of a COOL CREWSER!
To date I have acquired a number of items in the long and winding road to the creation of what I am going to call my CALCREWSER. My dream was to have a dependable ride with most of the creature comforts. In this light I planned on swapping in a 5.0L EFI and AOD from a '90 Grand Marquis complete with AC and cruise and as many of the toys as I could take from the car. As this will be an indepth project I also purchased a '78 Granada to do a driveline changeover, including disc brake swap and a 9" rear end.
