Here's a screen grab from a late 1960's Pacific Raceways video on youtube.
It's a push truck for a similarly painted '55 Chevy gasser that you can...
Great stuff! Thanks for sharing that.
This was my Dad's from The Big Go! mid '60s. It's a little worse for wear, but I hold onto it anyway.
Those are great! I always loved the Kat from AMT ones.
My Dad passed on his parts bin and unused decals to me when I was a kid in the late 70s....
That sure looks like a Hop Rod (gas powered pogo stick) he's holding. If he's bouncing around on that at his age, he's still got a wild side.
I kind of like it, but it doesn't know what it wants to be.
Kind of like a mullet, although I'm not sure if the hot rod part is the party or the...
Here's a couple more shots of that T70 that I took. Awesome car![ATTACH][ATTACH]
I agree, I'll take the old B movies anytime over the new cheaply made films.
Because as we all know (according to modern day interpretations) all...
It's kind of funny how the caption for the Portland Roadster Show says that the paint is yellow and then they have a picture from when it was green.
Don't know if it's the same one, but this one's for sale just outside of Seattle. Says it was bought in 1965, but never assembled....
Hey @Marty Strode this is truck the now, correct?
Here's a couple more pictures to cloud your decision :D
Without a doubt this!
But seeing as how it listed at $36K I would probably be happy just getting it running and driving.
That'd be very cool! I know it's not black and all of that, but here's one that was racing a COTA a few years back. It was racing against a sea of...
Not terribly rare, but I can't seem to find one of these (the frame).
The lettering is cast. The newer ones just use stickers.
I had one on the...
Man that things looks really sweet!
I can't believe that the spring perch bolts didn't just puncture the oil pan, what a blessing.
Yes, that's him.
Look what wearing a R.F. hat can do for you (results may vary)!
Love it or hate it, this shot to me has always said B*tchin Hot Rod!
Looks like a really cool building that the cars are displayed at. What a fitting backdrop.
@Jive-Bomber any pictures of the blue Model A or the...
Thanks for the additional pictures @Tman!
I maybe way behind the curve, but what's the story on this very cool looking car?
Counting my pennies pick:
Money not a worry pick:
Not sticking to page 1 pick (cheating):
Super big thanks to @pgan for documenting the resurrection of it in R&C back then. I loved following along as it happened.
So glad this car is...
It used to be Leicas were expensive, but not out of reach for a non-professional photographer.
Would love to have a Leica S, but I can't justify...
So what'd ya get @Ryan ? A Leica SL2-S as outlined in your Gear Journal post?
Congratulations on becoming its caretaker!
He really put a ton of thought and effort into building it.
In the detail pictures you posted I...
Here's a link to some additional info and some really good scans of a few programs....
I love that it's Poncho powered!
I'll have to confess though, I thought the rear fenders were butt ugly and I would've cut them off in a...
The steering wheel looks much like the "wood" steering wheel from a '64-'65 Pontiac Lemans/GTO.
Very nice boat, looks like a fun one to slalom behind.
