I M P R E S S I V E... that's all i have to say!
Dad when do I get mine? You always liked my brother better than me!! That is really cool, great workmanship. Well done.
Haha, that is what I was thinking as I was reading this!!!! Incredible!
Oh man. Everyone has said it already but I want one for my 6 year old.
If my dad and me built that I know when I turned 15 or so I would he lookin for an old Harley 1100 or something to drop in there. He will be a hot rodded for life.
Good work dad
That is awesome! I don't know how else to describe it?!
You need to start manufacturing those bodies you have a business on your hands there!
What a great job!
UNBELIEVABLE... I can't say enough about the workmanship of this lil' hot rod and how lucky your son is. Kudos to you for the build and I'm sure that is one thing he'll never forget. I'm sure you could make some $$$ off of reproducing those bodies, but for it to be the only one out there, simply awesome!!!
as far as build threads go...this is my new favorite. Awesome
Man that is just awesome! You build nicer go karts than I build full size cars!
That mini "A" is fantastic. That's all I can say.
Well thanks again to you all,
As for deaths doorstep, yes i followed the build, & up to the point when Dave started bolting on all the shiny shit it was about as good as an A gets ! and though the build turned out a bit that way as the need for things like the rear gravity feed fuel tank (it had to look right) and the rails ect were always going to be full of holes though the rear rails would have been tube but for the cost ! ( there must be around 500 plus holes throughout it !!)
I look at it like this ... if you think you just thought of it, then you can bet someone else has too !! though i have never seen round tube with drilled & filled holes befor, that came about because... if you cant hide something, make a feature of it !
Im glad so many of you like it ! i will at some point make a few bodies but it was only done because i had to ! i have thought of doing a real v8 race car at some point but we will see !!!
WoW I want one!
you gotta be kidding me.. !
That is just amazing...I feel like a caveman comparing your work to mine.
That thing should spank the backside of any punk cruisin around in a power wheels.
it's cool but the kid will be driving a real car soon. i think it's time to buy him a 'real' jalopy that he can help fix/modify for when he gets his license.
Can't add much over whats been said.....seriously, i'm speachless and LOVE IT!
So much i'd love to have it for myself being a big kid at heart!!!
Just look's so cool and like SO MUCH FUN!!!
Very nice, and what a way to spend time with your boy!!
Man, aside from the gasser one that was built on here a few years ago this is the koolest thing ive ever seen...I'm totally blown away by the attention to detail esp the porportions...I would literally sell my car so my son could have one of these....I'm def interested in a body so please keep us posted & thanks for sharing!!
Well - You have gone and set the bar! Better start on the real thing for when he gets older.
How many of his friends will be bugging their fathers to build one? That sir, is phenomenal.
That's car of the year for me.
That thing is super rad. I want to see a video of it scootin' around!
WOW cant believe it hell if i could fit my fat ass in it i think i would be tempted to drive it back an forth to work .....hhmm sorry officer its the newest in hybred gas powered econ cars !!!
What can i say that hasen't already been said? Love to see your son driving it!
This is absolutely the best build thread on here!
Daimler did make that baby hemi...
That's fucking radical. Love it.
I agree with 38FLATTIE ...........X's 2
I feel like such a bad Dad now. It's freakin beautiful!
