    Basic simplicity there. The beauty is in the fact that anything not needed isn't there. Fun to look at.
     
  3. I think I'd nominate "Tweedy Pie" as another "shorty" that works - sans turtle deck and pickup bed

  4. There was a green one very similar running around So Cal for many years, it was on the cover of a Street Rod book. I never knew the owner personally, but would run into him at many a HopUp event, and LARS. I don't have a photo handy and I am not sure if he still is alive as he was a grey beard 15 years ago...

    Damned near a Doodlebug in it's simplicity. Love it. Very cool. Good on Bill Vogt.

    It looks like it was rear-ended into another car, squoooshed.

    I like mine better...

  11. Oh my gosh...love the little stubby trucks...had a few of them running around in my neighborhood back in the day...my dad would shake his head when we saw them...I would break my neck looking at them....thanks for sharing on here...

  12. I like Vogt's little A RPU, it is like the Model A version of "Tweedy Pie".

    These cars can look good and not end up looking like a clown car or doodlebug.

    Here is a shorty T modified at the lakes in 1951, no info on who the owner was.

    I did a rough calc on the wheelbase - something like 81"!!
    When I see stuff like this, I wish for a time machine so I could spend a week's vacation in SoCal in the early '50s...
     
  14. I want one. I 've been slowly collecting parts [very slowly] to possibly put one together. Some days I think I'd really rather build another lakes modified. A narrow 1 passenger hot rod with a 301 chevy I've got.

    Not Short, Miniscule! Others? My first thought was Tweety Pie, but I Do like rodster's stretched version.
