I don't think bubba ever figured out that the rope type rear main seal had shrunk and was causing the leak. Judging by the looks of the bearings he was too busy sticking his foot through the radiator.

Fractured rocker ball found in Brand new $8,000 motor that a customer purchased off the internet. See the following pics for more good news. The further we went into the motor the uglier it got. The owner now has his attorney dealing with the aftermath. Be careful who you deal with.

One of our competitors finest work. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh. After all they only charged the owner $17K to install a new engine and trans. Gotta love that upper radiator hose and the backwards air cleaner

Door lock opening rod found in newly purchased 67 Camaro. Bubba put a lot of effort into it but it didn't work to well. A new rod was only $8.00.  Magically the door now opens fine.

Bubbafied brake pedal assembly just fabricated???? and installed along with a new disc brake conversion.  Hmmm  the brakes didn't work to well, Bubba must have skipped the chapter on pedal ratios and their importance for proper brake function.
