    ok its been a while if i can ill post some pics ok some of the pics have a 3x2 manifold on the engine recently sold that and got the crossram. and fabed up my own scoops not the best but they work. added 1900 centry tail lights to match the front lights,were oil and candle power converted to 12 volt ( probably should have left them alone, can always switch them back) had a little wheel hop on the front end so had to reset the degree setting still getting things done. ordered new exhaust tubes to resemble the organ pipes on the tv car. 6 shows 5 awards. hopefully save some money and have the front end chromed try too anyway

  6. I like these things! I don't no why, I just do. Maybe it the Munster thing. A little advice for you, loose the Grave Digger association. It's very well known as a monster truck.

    Here's some inspiration for you......

    I quit putting cars in shows when I figured out that awards and trophies dont mean anything except that you showed up.

    It gets the Goths to pay their way into the car shows 36-3window. The ones who have no interest in car shows or hot rods or customs but will flock to see a coffin car.

    Let me know when it happens.
     
  14. The funny thing is that I've never seen any "Goths" at a car show, let alone check out cars like this. But I've seen plenty of people my age as well as other hot rodders admire builds like this.
     
  15. When you see roots instead of grass you'll know you got it! :D

    I like it alot. Ed Roth and George Barris are two of my heros and this reminds me of their work.

    Me either. Waste of time and energy. Just my opinion.
     
  20. I totally get it. I even have a coffin/casket in the back yard waiting. I figure if I dont ever get time to build it,,,,, it will get used regardless :(
     
  21. Rather be in a moving one than a still one. I'm just saying. :D

    Reminds me of all the crazy theme showcars of the late 60's - early 70's. Those were surely the days.
