LMAO! that's cool! What kind of fines could you have amassed if you were caught by the 5-0! :-) That red plastic gas cap itself should be a felony!

Only someone who owns something like that can truly appreciate the ride! Lol! When I took my 27T-ster out for its 1st ride. It was @ El Mirage and the body wasn't even bolted down=lol! I think that it has 3 in there now. Brakes pulsate & are marginal & the fact the it doesn't have it's windsheild doesn't bother me a bit lol!
I will say that it is the most fun that I've had in one my cars.
I used to lend it to this kid named Steven for months @ a time.

I helped him eventually build something like it, but his wasn't as fun.
He did drive it from Pasadena to Balboa Island/Newport as a true 1st drive though=He soon lost interest & stayed with the VW Bug clique.

Drive ithe wood spokes off the one that you have!

I can relate. I bought a stone stock '26 T roadster this past summer. My wife and I have been terriorizing the back roads around here at the blistering rate of about 35 MPH. It's a whole new perspective, getting transported around at what seems like a fast walk. We went out to visit her friend when we first got it. Normally it's about a 15 minute drive. We arrived about an hour later and almost didn't get home before dark, not taking into account the time needed to get home.
