Grease Girl and the Hot Rod Bomb Adventures of Losing Your Brakes in a Classic Longtime readers may remember when I lost the brakes in my 1955 Studebaker...while I happened to be wearing a swimsuit (headed to the local pool) and ended up jumping from my moving vehicle. You read that right. Now's your chance to enjoy the story retold, in retro comic book form! For more on brake loss, figuring out how to fix things, and other crazy car ...
1960 Ford Falcon: Time's Up Homebuilt Ford Falcon by Greasegirl #12 Last night Ethan and I stayed up all night working on the Falcon - I've never spent so much back-to-back time in the garage!
