My name is Corey and I live in Tennessee, originally from Cary Illinois. I am married and have 2 sons with another on the way in the next month. I have been into the Steampunk genre for many years but never felt totally comfortable with it. Discovered Dieselpunk a few years back and fell in love. I collect classic cars and motorcycles and figured out thats what steampunk was missing, cool vehicles. Sure airships and steam powered cars are cool but with Dieselpunk I can incorporate my classics into my persona and completely get away with it without having to pretend its steam powered or other nonsensory. I have a 1946 Chevy sedan, 1938 Buick and a 1952 Kaiser, the Kaiser is a little too new so I am working on getting a 1934 Ford Pickup to replace it and so I can haul a motorcycle if I need too. The 46 and 38 are both under restoration right now and only the Kaiser is drivable at the moment. All but the Kaiser fit into my character I am developing and hopefully should have a full outfit soon to display in the 'duds' thread. I hope to meet and get to know some fellow dieselpunk fans. Any questions feel free to ask.
Hullo Corey! Have you got photos of your vehicles? They sound ace/
Welcome aboard, Corey! You'll find plenty of other Gearheads and automotive enthusiasts on this site. I recommend the "Cars & Bikes Group" under the "Groups" tab and keep an eye out in the Articles for "lord_k's Garage" every week.
And yes, please do post the vehicle pics!
I live in Nashville. What part of TN are you?
I live in Smyrna, I am a member of Middle Tn. DieselPunks. I spoke to you about dieseling your bike, I need to message you cause I have a few ideas about that.
Heres the 1946 Chevy when we first got it, hope to have it on the road soon. I will dig up pics of the rest tonight.
WOW! Now THAT is dedication! Buying/swapping a vehicle out just to suit your persona! LOL
GREAT looking project Chevy! Looking forward to more of your pics.
WELCOME ABOARD, Corey!
I go through a few vehicles a year just horse trading with other car enthusiasts and only keep the ones I really like. The Chevy is really the wifes but she lets me work on it for her. LOL. I hope to get more pics up if I can ever break away from work long enough to be home.
Nice to e-meet you, Corey. And welcome onboard.
For some reason I cannot find pics of the Buick so here is one that similar till I can get out to my shop and take some new ones. Also picture of my Kaiser.
love the chevy style!
