Thats Ed Roth,s Wishbone if ya read the book on his
life it shows the build plus he hated it cut it up and chuncked it out a guy asked for it and Ed gave it to him if he promised not to show it ,Well

Well, Ed is dead and that thing is a piece of automotive history... this is one of those times I'm glad someone didn't keep their promise.

Rat Rods ! ?
I'm liking this:
This car may qualify under the "one-off" heading:
Another angle of the pickup above:
Dirty Doug got it. Then pieced it back together in Darryl's garage.
I made the grille shell from the front of a 60 Chevy truck hood. I did a thread on it a long time ago...search "Ovaltine" if you're interested...it was a fun little truck!
What are the rear quarters from?
Gary is a true artist when it comes to this stuff. A real visionary. I wish he could get a gig like Chip Foose. Turn out drawings and have a crew to build them!
Like this thread, wish I had something to post but am having a hard time finding stuff :/
1960 Merc ?
Yep! 60 Merc narrowed about 4 feet! 56 olds dash, 33 cab, boat steering wheel...truly a frankencar!
It's pretty cool....I've found 2 Corvair candidates for around $1,200 ea.
Hello, some very interesting ideas there. I'll add few mine rough sketches, if you don't mind...
Homebuilt headers ??
Fat fender headers from speedway that I modified

growing up in the 70's in the houston texas area, there was a purple 25 t with a narrowed 59 impala trunk on it. that was the car that hooked me on old cars.
It's in the Chicago area, I believe. Was built by Dave Puhl. Not sure of the build year, but it's old. Stu
these are the kind of cars you'll see if you open up my Hot Wheels collection from when I was a kid. I love them. I don't care if they're not what is "traditional" or functional. I've actually built a couple of hot rods, and from that perspective, they're amazing. Let your inner five year old out once in a while and take in the whimzy...
Here's some random pics. I didn't realize that I had pictures of so many of these cars. Apparently I have a thing for them. If you see something you don't like...feel free to move on.
Here's a picture of the front of it...stolen from Ric Hoving's site.
