My pal Randy and his pop just finished up this little roadster...It was done all in the back yard shop and it is sweet...Powered by a Big nasty big block Chebbie engine backed with a muncie 4spd...Well I helped in a very very small capacity on a few things on the car so I looked a Ronnie and said take me for a spin...He threw the keys to me and said no you take it for a spin....So Wes and I climbed in and a grin came to my face as she rumbled to a start....Randy warned me that she was a powerful girl....Lets just say its all you want in a light short car with a big engine....

Well while attending the Street rod nats last week I secured a deal on a new Sewing machine....Top of the line and with buying the demo from the weekend I saved about 5 hundo....It has a servo motor which is a joy especially since I am new to sewing uphls stuff.With a servo motor it works like a throttle pedal the more you push the pedal the faster it goes or let off the slower it goes.
Had one of my buddy Shortbus' Kustoms seat pans laying there and some remnants of material.
This my first attempt at a pleated cover. Its just slid over the pan with no foam or fastended.Lots to learn and more to do but the new Mo'cheeen is most awesome.

Sorry I have been missing in action....I had been doing a little summer event traveling and then a week ago Friday lost my father to complications from diabetes. God Speed Dad.....I think my brother said it best last week when he was told of the news.
Todd Shoemaker "When people see me with my son Zeke they always tell me how great of a dad I am. I deserve very little credit for this I just follow the path that was laid before me by my father. Ronald H. Shoemaker was a great man and a honarable man. He passed away last night and I justed wanted to state that he and my mom made me who I am and made my sister and brothers some of the best people I know."thanks Dad I love You!!!
I feel that if you know me you can insert daughter for son and I am that person...
Heres a family pic minus one sibling that had not been born yet.But you can see where my taste in eye wear comes from........My dad The Big Shoe the Crazy Cool Cat he was can rock on in heaven
