    That's a 72 or earlier Waste Management Motorized dumpster with proper patina and the welds look pretty strong!

    I can't see it in that pic Chris, your brush painted patina'd roadster you built is in the way.

    You are right that is best looking 1932 pre war car I have every seen in person. The car is also built with original parts and pre war hotrod parts. It is not catalog car. That car needs to be on the cover of the Goodguy Mag.

    Here are some more pics of Mike's car. That was the first show that car has been to. The car looks right. I hope that Kirk took some good pic of the car. The white 1929 roadster is a real hotrod from mid 50's.

    Good God I've seen it all now. The jokes are almost overwhelming. Hmmm...let's see;

    1. I've seen rods that are shit boxes, but never literally...
    2. Well, at least it meets the "if it aint steel, it aint real" philosophy.
    3. I knew when Goodguys raised the year cutoff, it was going to attract some unwanted stuff, but I never expected this.
    4. How is it registered? 60's powertrain, or perhaps a 2002 Dempsey (Dempsey Dumpster that it).
    5. Probably don't want to park it out back of any retail stores. You come back and find it full of trash.
    6. On the flip side, you wouldn't have to worry about cleaning in out after a long trip. Just park in next to another dumpster, and the garbage truck could tip it up and shake it out for you.
    7. If it breaks down, do you call a tow truck or garbage truck?
    8. I know there's a big push to "go green", but I don't think this is what they had in mind.
    9. Could you really tell if the interior ever got smelly?
    10. This must be the roadster model. The coupe has a roof made by Rubbermaid.

  8. Hmmm, let me guess...

    the ultimate in dumpster-diving?

    I asked the guy how he would classify it and he told me homebuilt. I guess he gets his parts behind shopping plazas.:rolleyes::D

    Wow, Mike sure is getting some ballhanging. :eek: But rightfully so. It is a damn fine ride. Glad to see it left his zip code for once. :eek:

    Sorry I missed the festivities. But it looks like Mike made some friends. And his garage has carpet, he so babies that thing. :D

    You forgot to mention the MONARCH hub caps.:cool:
     
  24. Thanks folks. Carolinas- interesting country. G'day from down under.

    p.s. I like the Model A stock car, and the clean lil' white Maverick behind it. That 50's heavy too, lotsa crazy coolness
