  1. shoot Jim, wish you were a little further South Indiana ⬇️⬇️⬇️ https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/265224391498049/ need someone to put eyeballs on these for me...
  2. Anyone in the Evansville Indiana area that could put an eyeball on these for me 🤔 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/265224391498049/
  3. Thanks Guys! Thank you All, for the warm welcome back 🤓
  4. Holy Crap! Now you're talkin', Tas 🤩 I don't think my 1977 car will make it that far though 🤨
  5. made her park her BMW outside. ...we are divorced now (seriously...)
  6. LOL - my friends were sick of me... me: uh, fella's whachaUdoin' today? me: need help lifting the body again, please? 🤪
  7. the tubs were a huge undertaking !!! Perhaps the most difficult part of the build (or my least favorite LOL)
  8. Running Turbo 400 transmission, Ford 9" rear end (full spool, 4.88 gears), Coil over/ladder bar. Front is Heidts Mustang II. I'll dig up some more photos of the build here in a bit, as requested 😉
  9. Hi all 🙂 Need to find a pair of La Scala's to restore for personal use. Found a couple of leads on FB Market but nothing promising. What happened to the market while I was away? 🥴 edit: pair of Cornwall or Belle would also fit the bill. Thanks, Matt
  10. Thank you, Sir! It has certainly been a lot of fun. And no, this is a one of a kind, Hot Rod Hudson 🤓
  11. BillyBob, does that mean my RF-7 (originals) are worth mulah-mulah 🤩 ...on a side note - OMG! look at all the emoji's you guys got now HaHa
  12. Contacted this fella: He said his La Scala pair are worth well over $1500 and he has two buyers at $2K. Just had to laugh to myself and tell him 'good luck with sale'... 🤣 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3181912985368163/
  13. not 2-channel but... So here is what has been taking up my time the last 2+ years. Pro Street 1935 Hudson. Built 'er myself. She is ALMOST done now (never done LOL) and with Winter around the corner, need me some Scala's 🥰
  14. Well, The Forum looks the same. I hope everyone is good and getting through these crazy times OK. I pretty much took a 2+ year absence from audio. Other than moving junk around and listening. Unfortunately, my hobbies have become just a little more intense lately LOL
  15. So, what the hell has been going on? Wow, looks like it was back late 2017 since I last signed in. Time flies !!! Where are all those La Scala's that need some make-up? 🧐 Winter is coming fast and might need a project. OK, that was a lie. i WANT a project! Project for a keeper pair (not flip). Miss them big 'ol glorious speakers in my life. Sick of the RF-7's like last year... Matt

    Don't know what has been included in the motor build, unfortunately. All I know is it's a mild build 355 sbc. Going to pull the valve covers tomorrow to get a look at the rockers, might give me a little better idea of build quality. The 177's are smaller, single carb blowers. Likely only run it at 3-4 lbs of boost. This will be my 3rd blower motor so not my 1st dance in the park Hi Mook - been a while, my friend... Yes indeed, that would have been "a whole lot 'o shakin" goin on - HA added a little mood lighting Start polishing all that aluminum under the hood tomorrow while I decide what to do with the intake Matt ♪ ♫ ♪

    nervous I was as well. Zero instruction, flying by the seat of my pants. The gun was giving me troubles at first but finally got the hang of it. There are a few runs I will have to go back and address but overall am pretty stoked with the outcome. Can't wait to go back and see what it looks like this morning. The paint should have laid down a bit overnight. Have it sitting in my make shift paint booth at work, heat cranked up to 100 degrees. Now on the hunt. Think I am going to put a little 177 blower on it. There is huge Hot Rod swap meet coming to the area real soon, I know something very cool will be coming home with me

    Been sanding and smoothing this thing out for a couple of weeks now. That is not primer. Single stage enamel, about 8 coats (snow flake white). Took me all day to shoot it, i am exhausted. Not sure what I was thinking when I started this project, Holy Crap! Think it turned out pretty decent for my 1st automotive paint job, ever. Have some classy and very tasteful trim to cover up all those holes. Next up, some goodies for the motor, Vroom Vroom

    laid some paint today, Sir Billy Matt ♪ ♫ ♪

    This is what it looked like when I got it. The motor is strong with only about 2K miles on it. Will pull off the valve covers, wire keepers, carb, and filter, get them all polished up, shinning like a diamond. Searching for a polished high rise, Victor style intake manifold. Accel distributor. Won't do much more than that to the motor. Mated to a TH350 trans. It will certainly smoke the tires.

    Thank you Sir Been sooo busy. My recent work not being Klipsch, thought it not relevant to the forum. However, we have hi-jacked a thread LOL
