Jeri Ellsworth Builds a Pure Stock Car

Home Metalworking Workshop

Those of us who are Jeri Ellsworth fans have heard about her race car builder/driver past, but most us know of her through her electronics engineering exploits. In this Building a Pure Stock Race Car video series, she proves her automotive hacking mettle as she helps her friend Trish make race-worthy a 1981 Camero. If you weren’t interested in welding before, after seeing a car basically being deconstructed and rebuilt, you’ll see the power of what you can do, armed with the skill, a welding rig, and some square and round tubing.

      I have the sense she’s not real big on the “home ec” arts. But I DO know she flambes a mean marshmallow Peep.

        Flames are so crude.  Peeps respond *much* better to microwaves.

        //the best part is that campfire marshmallow smell when you take them out

      Wrestle a bear.

      Then again, she’d probably build something that would do a fantastic job wrestling the bear for her….;^)

        Really? I heard bears won’t attack out of fear of her skills. Something about them trying to hire her one day for grabbing picnics…
