All that comes to mind is STYX...
TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS !
I love it! I dream of wanting to do a crazy cartoon build.
I think I made a wrong turn at The Twilight Zone!
Unbelievable craftsmanship! It looks like you could spend hours dissecting it with your eyes and still not see all the small details...
Hats off to em for the amount of intensive labor it must have taken...
Ed Roth would probably want to take it for a spin if he were still around...
If this thing had 14x10" slot mags on all 4 corners and some kind of fog/panel paint job, it would have been a real show winner in the late 60's.
I appreciate the work that went into it. I'll stop at that.
A lot of work went into that.
This build has a lot of thought, design, engineering, uniqueness, etc. incorporated into it.
The end result isn't my taste, but I appreciate the skills involved to create it.
I'm sure the builder, was well aware it would be controversial, and that it's appeal would be limited, he achieved a totally unique end result, that makes a statement not soon to be forgotten.
I like it. It is not a clone of 1,000 cars, like many that I see on this board.
Looks practical. And comfy.
One certainly cannot discount the amount of planning, engineering, and execution that went into this car. I think that if it were lowered in the front it would have a nicer stance/look. I sort of like it for two reasons: Its clearly unique and built to the owners taste and also it isn't built from a catalog.
No floor? No radiator? Is that a water tank? Strip only? Aerodynamics must be outstanding!
It sure is different.
Can this actually be driven, or is it just a display?
If I could only see it , then I would have the opportunity to respond with my thoughts on the subject matter, so if I were to respond solely on what I can make out of it....it's no different than any other big red X.

No doubt the engineering, craftmasnship, and possibly illicitit drugs that went into the build are incredible. However, the woman in the white dress facial expression in the third pic probably speaks to thousands....
Cartoonish and extremely intricate. I love it.
Love the carburetor linkage..!
The door gaps look right.
A lot of imagination and craftmanship! Without a doubt outstanding in its own way. Not exactly my cup of tea though. Kind of reminds me of the" Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory" movie.
Hell, I'd drive it. Beats the hell out of a 'cookie cutter' 32 Ford. I appreciate the 'over the top' craftsmanship.
Looks like 26/27 Model T coupe that someone left a little too close to the heater
There is 60s in that Roadworthy Inspired Showrod...it has the warped, big slicked T-Shirt Vibe to it...and of course admirable fab skills...
I'd like to see a Drag Race against the Beatnik Bandit...
