Fishing: fortunately I live close enough to world-class trout fishing AND great saltwater fishing, too.
Very nice ,and you are a busy man, we also live in a place where the fishing is great. Salt and fresh we love it all. My wife bought me my first boat many years ago to get me out on the ocean. I cant wait to go hand lining soon, for some halibut or haddock , cod etc.

I also keep a mistress.

She was/is a project. Very close to sinking at the dock. Had two inches of grass growing on her decks. A LOT of hard work and now she is a beauty. She even has a little BBQ!
Man that is beautiful. I've always wanted to learn to sail.

It's been a while since I had it running. I shot myself in the foot so to speak, it's pretty expensive to run.

WOW! I love the old muscle cars, and this looks like you've gone way over anything I've ever seen! Impressive as heck. Is that a '66 or '67 Buick? Guessing, I usually need to see the tailights to know better. Could be a Pontiac though. Excellent job either way. How loud is that when running?

It's actually what's left of a '65 Chevelle Malibu. Only thing that's still original is the main body shell. I actually drove this car to high-school back in the day. It was very rough so it was either spend a pile of money on a resto or build a race car. The racecar was actually cheaper.

Nice. The front end threw me off. The mid 60's GM's were so similar looking. What have you built the engine into? I mean I'm seeing those front side pipes and I can only imagine what you've got under the hood. Sorry, I get like a kid in a candy store when I start talking American Muscle cars, lol.

That's fantastic. Do you run Pro Mod, Top Sportsman, or No Prep with it?
It was built as a Top Sportsman car but I mostly ran exhibition stuff at my local track. We don't get many national events. It's been in storage for a while since I moved. I'm getting older and its getting very hard for me to get in and out of it. I'm looking at selling the rolling chassis and building an altered so I can re-use the power train.

That is incredible to me! Never seen anything like it in person. Way above anything I've been involved in.

Very impressive! Thanks for the pictures.
