    As a Power Wagon owner: great topic, wrong forum.
    Still, there are similarities between a Power Wagon and a hot rod. Brute force, form follows function, no creature comforts whatsoever, etc. The translation, however is entirely different.

    I was sort of looking for someone who had used a Power Wagon as the base of a rod.... can a hot rod be "too big"?

    In that vein.. what's the biggest "traditional-ish" hot rod anyones ever seen?

    A hotrodded fire engine or something maybe?

    The garage across the street from my house has a big old IH wrecker they bought new in the 50s and still operate. I'll see if I can get a pic.

    I drove past a lumber yard this weekend that had a great old 40's monster of a truck with a boom on the back. I don't know if it runs, but wouldn't it be great to haul that beast out into the willywags to pull cars?
    I'll try to get a couple pics and maybe some info on it.

  12. This truck was built by John Foster in Aubrey Tx. a few years back. It has changed hands a few times. Fuel injected GM and a 5 spd. if memory serves me correctly. Awsome craftsmanship, he built the bed himself and most of the boom.

    This monster is sitting next to a state road in northern MN. I assume it was modified for logging. I do like that big metal spear on the front end...it would get people out of your way on the highway. :)

    I dig those Nash Quads, or Jeffrey's, for that matter. I also like Power Wagons. I have an F3 Marmon Herrington Ford All Wheel Drive that will be restored one day.

    I wonder if the builder used a WWII Dodge 1.5 ton 6X6 chassis?
