Not sure where in going with this yet but I had an urge to make a mega cab. Felt like posting this now since I'm leaving for vacation for a few weeks so wont get around to doing anything for a few weeks. Also just finished up a customer build I'll post once they get it.

Had a sweet time at the @darkhorsemt car show. Wish the weather was nice enough I could drive my car over (or at least get tie wiper blades working) lots of super sweet cars there with my favorite hands down being their twin turbo duramax squarebody flatbed. Also cool to see @aevconversions there with a few prospectors, brutes and their beautiful tray bed! They also had a dyno running all day so check my story for s few of the highlights.

Well I'm glad I can finally post this build. Made a ford f100 prerunner for @diecast_biz contest. I got voted out the first round so oh well. I love everything about this build except that I painted it black. It looks okay but I think it would have been cooler if I painted it red with white fenders or gave it a little patina. Lots of work went into this including the custom rear suspension and cage, the vacuumformed bedsides and a gated automatic.

So big news! After 3 years of having this account its finally time to retire my old logo. This new one is a beautiful painting done by @scoutpinstriping. Followers who have been around for a while will recognize this as my old 53 Pontiac that I sold last year to help pay for my ford. Adam gave the poncho a bit of an abandoned look with some moss to play off my username. Adam also did a really cool rendering of the #sassylassieford. Man does amazing work! Go check out his profile!

Warm weather has me in a surfer wagon mood. Tried a more super sun baked patina look inspired to the cars I saw at a junkyard last week. It looks a bit excessive on this woody and I'm not sure I like the look but it was fun to try.

Spent my day off at a junkyard my friend told me about. Lots of really cool old stuff there. Walked away with a few goodies. Of corse nothing I needed but stuff I want. The glass jar was an ice cream jar from the 20s when Kraft, yes the fake cheese company made ice cream. The trunk lid is off a Buick. I have plans for that. Will post photos of the place tomorrow

Wrapped up this little ratty hot wherls golf. Really not a fan of how cartoonish the casting is and I was hoping some detail painting would help but not really. Love the @dirtmodeler rook rack looks good with and without the basket.

So I have a 267 chevy sbc out of an 80s elco in the lassie, which is a fairly unpopular engine due to it's small displacement and the fact you can get a 350 for the same price. But what it lacks in power it makes up for in millage feels like I never have to fill it up. It just sips gas from its 8 gallon tank like a classy lady sips her red wine.

Today's small but still bad ass haul. Starting with the zz top Billy Higgins hot rod. I saw someone else post one and had to have it. Then the Jurassic park cars. I was wondering why my store wasnt getting them until I realized they were in a different section. And last but far from least, the old chevy license plate. I thought it was too cool to pass up and will he a wall hanger until I get a chevy again... which hopefully will be soon.

Hit me up! Must be drivable condition. Please no straight 6s, 350 preferred but a 454 would be okay. Also would like a 4spd but I guess an auto is okay as well

actually though, it's kind of a bucket list item of mine to one day trade a ton of toy cars for a real one haha

It's the return of the 1 minute tutorial. This is a little trick I figured out to make sure you dont have any gaps or cuts left after joining two pieces of zamac. *do note the sharpie I was using in the video is very near death* One thing I forgot to add is make sure you sand the sharpie off before paint for the best results. Check the  #mossrodstutorial hashtag or my YouTube page in my bio for more tutorials and tricks
