The Jalopy Journal
A very cool machine!
last week, I got an old vw dune buggy (year unknown) from a good friend of mine for free. He gave me the dune buggy, two engines, two seats (but...
Nice shots, but even though the crew has Daytona uniforms, I'm pretty sure that these are stills from the 1960 movie, 'Thunder in Carolina"
This is just absolutely beautiful!!! I love the color, the chop, the engine choice! Can't wait for another update!
I actually kind of like it. Reminds me of Falcon with a 63 Galaxie grill (flat will holes)
I hate when the seller says "Motivated seller ready to sell".....well I'd hope you're motivated if you're going to sell something.
These are awesome!!!! You have a good eye for what people want to see!
Very Nice!!! And BTW, it seems like to me it really didn't take you that long to build either.....what was it, about a year?
It looks like a regular 54 grill with pieces of a 55' behind it:confused:
You really are a bargainer and a finder aren't you?? Anyway....awesome job on this. I will stay tuned for the end of this one!!! Great Job!
Some people just get all the luck! Looks like you even have a nice John Deere Tractor back there?? Maybe an R, or 70 model? What is it?
That is awesome!!! One of the best coupes I've seen! And I mean it....your's is in my top three model a list now:D Great Job!!!
Way COOL!!! Awesome Job!
Man.....we have the same exact likes:eek:Except my time-period starts in the 30's and goes to the late 50's. I'm 15 btw.
Awesome progress on the...
This one was tough for me....I do like 49/50, but you see a lot of them. And the reason I voted 51 was because they're just different
No, it's not a glass body from Manix or anything. It was built by hand from a normal vw.
That'll be different. I've seen that color on a car, but never on an engine!
I didn't know if a dunebuggy (vw) would be acceptable here for the 60's section. A guy I know gave me one yesterday with two engines, 4 new tires...
HOLY CRAP!!! A truck that nice for only $682!?!?!? Amazing! This gives me hope to find something like that!
Oh....woops:o:o:o, I guess I was thinking about 37's with the split windows... Sorry about that.
Notice that this car has both a full front and back window. No split-windows. Looks awesome!:cool:
Is it me, or do I see Elvis Presley in the raincoat holding a package??? I know he was a big fan of the movie and James was a big hero to Elvis....
Don't mess with these guys!!:rolleyes: They will mess you up!
I hate being a 'jealous 15 year old! lol Anyway, EXTREMELY nice job man!
I need to find something near me!!!
Try racecar?? This Buck Baker replica is on display at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame where I work.
Can't believe no one wants a FREE engine!?! I'd take it, but shipping to Ga must be heck!
Well, It's different.... It reminds me of a Chrysler product.
