After 15 plus years of cataloging pics, some are paying off. On the theory you need to know your market, once a day I blow through Facebook if for nothing nore than to see anything new…… don’t get me wrong, social media is all good and hanging with other folks who like what you do… heck that’s just American so I also like you like to lurk and see what’s happening. It was a welcome sight to see a project we did here many years ago come back to the forefront. So if you ARE on Facebook and saw this I though I would give you the REAL story as to what caused “The Great OZ” to be created The original owner who dreamed up OZ was a club member who liked to be different. He was from Jamaica I think it was and very short. This modification may not be choice for everyone in that head height was effected in the slide design But deployed there was ample room… each slide deployed 23″ No, it was not easy… no, it was not cheap and yes, it took a great deal of time….. but it was built. The last time I saw OZ, it was headed to a rally in Kansas (thus the name) …Oh yea, and we designed the entry door ON the slide…. betcha never seen THAT!
So all you frequenting Facebook, understand The Co-op has done a pile of weird stuff… you may not want weird but if I can cut 2 holes in a GMC big enough to drive a Buick through I think we can handle most anything you need done to one of these vintage machines Enjoy the social stuff on Facebook… hey, it’s a fun thing to do but please don’t get caught up in drinking all that punch, there is so much more input out there is you look around. Maybe a good place to start but don’t believe it all…. no downing of it… I enjoy it too but I’m saying there is so much more to add to that….. use your finger and your common sense.
No, I haven’t made a double decker and personally I don’t want too but hey, it could be done………. but cha gotta WANT IT!
Hey wait, don’t let all that crazy scare you…. most projects we do DON’T do stuff like that. The mission statement of The Co-op (and I really DID write a business plan starting Cooperative Motor Works) was to assemble a facility that knows how to and can do most anything a GMC Motothome owner would want to do…. most full projects end up looking like this but because we know how to do that, we can do smaller projects too but to a better standard you might find from folks who do not know the coach.
OK… spending a little time waiting for the guys to show up…..
Got everyone going so I’d like to show you a little more….
I though I would never have to cut up my hands installing a 3 shaft radio in a car with a metal dash…… but here’s the dash of the 57 Chey stretch we’re finishing up And man is that dash crammed! There’s an in dash AC/heat unit in there! the glove box will be a pull out pocket! AC vents everywhere and they want the front of the thing to look original! This project is moving well. It’s cool walking in the shop, lights low with no one there. Check out these awesome coach just chillin in the morning OK that’s it… Jared should have to troops mobilized by now….. I need to see what I can do to help. Really thank you for dropping by and your support. It’s pretty difficult right now bouncing back from a weeks no work from the hurricane……. every day needs to produce……. think good thoughts for us, we can use it. This business has been and will always be here to help the GMC owner and do things others won’t…… maybe some things should have never been done hey, you just don’t know til ya try! Again, thank you for your support and those that for some reason don’t like us…. sorry guys I have those folks come here to… let me ask why? Life is too short to quibble on small stuff and creating friction for others is just not making things any better. Lets all not do that. These are awesome machines and we all should feel fortunate to say we know them and feel the love together. Lets do that, or even anything close would be fine too.
See ya tomorrow……
