Meanwhile, on the OTHER Meteor project ...

I set a goal to have a 1963 Mercury Meteor "Resto-Mod" car done for my son Eliot by the time he gets his driver's license. He just turned 14, and it looks like we might actually make it.
This car will absolutely be badass!

Features: 2003 Mustang Cobra IRS (Independent Rear Suspension), 1999 6-way adjustable Cobra seats, Stage 3 IFS (Independent Front Suspension) from CMJ Performance, Ford Hydroboost power brakes (w/
Cobra disk brakes all around), rack-and-pinion power steering, DynoTech Driveshaft, 2005 Mustang wheels. So far, the motor is 5.0L Mustang GT, but will most likely be a 347 c.i.d. stroker motor before we're done.

Our latest work is finishing off the Cobra IRS installation. Below is one photo from yesterday, but you can read the whole saga here.

I am proud that this entire project has been done right in our driveway, with our own tools.

Hey, ... I would love to write something for your blog.

What kind of thing are you looking for?

My son and I just visited the Designing an Icon exhibition in Detroit, so maybe your readers would like to hear about that ...

Yours truly,
