    • A Retired 1953 Chevy Farm Truck Stops by the Eastwood Outlet

      We often have local customers cruising to the Eastwood retail outlet in their classic cars. During the winter the number of interesting cars and trucks that we see goes down considerably, but that doesn't stop everyone. Ray T. stopped by the other day to price out some tools and supplies for his newest project- a 1953 Chevy 3/4 Ton Pickup. His truck is a rare bird in that it's all original and it's farm fresh! The truck spent 99% of its life since new on a Kansas Farm and it only has some wear and tear from being "used". Overall the truck is very solid and it stil sports the original inline six that runs great (albeit a little oil smoke). The only modification currently is a rear end from a more modern 1987 Chevy 3/4 ton pickup.

      Ray's plans are a bit controversial, but he's talking about turning it into a street rod and installing an automatic v8 and some more modern modifications. The purists may turn their noses up for modifying such a nice original example, but he does have a nice solid base to start with! Whatever he decides, our guys in the Eastwood retail outlet will steer him in the right direction to do the job right. If you want to visit our retail outlet and get some advise about your next project or see our products in person, come see us here: http://www.eastwood.com/custserv-store

    • I Say, Old Chap, Would You Care To Host Your Own Car Restoration Programme?

      Time to dream! Your road to fame and fortune runs through London! Here's a thought-provoking nugget I found on the carenthusiast.co.uk blog...

      A UK television production company, Betty, is looking for two presenters and a team of mechanics to host a new car programme.

      The programme will feature the two presenters traveling across the globe to find rare and rundown classic cars, bringing them back to the UK and restoring them to their former glory. The hosts will also look into the history of the models, speaking to various enthusiasts, designers and production workers along the way. According to Betty, the new show will be "nostalgic and inspirational", and will aim to deliver "retro cars in an aspirational light."

      They're looking for two people who ideally have an expert knowledge of car restoration, are passionate about the history of cars, and have big personalities who can bring the show to life. So, if you think you meet the above criteria and fancy a career in television, contact the producers:
