    Thats right kids, I teamed up with super famous illustrator Jimmy Smith.
    I am building one of his fantastic drawings that caught my eye.
    Its a radical show rod with a VW drive line, super bell axle out front, a '50 Merc steering box, and a bunch of other cast off junkyard parts. Its being built in the timeless Ed Roth tradition of plaster spit wads & hand rolled fiberglass!
    We'll keep you posted as the plaster hardens! now get back out to the garage and build something!

    Wow, very cool! The concept drawing looks awesome, can't wait to see this come together. You must get a quantity discount getting the bubble top made by now:p

    I am a closet air-cooled fan too, excited to see updates

    Fritz,
    I've always admired your work since I first saw your stuff in the horse. I'm glad nobody told you that it can't be done. Not only more pictures how about bigger ones.
    Thanks Rich
