    Stupid idea. Why would anyone want to waste their time like that?

    That's no joke. I've seen it run a couple of times. I would like it more if it were more "refined", but it's still a beast on the strip.

    In south Florida these type rods were called CUT-UP's before Roth got known,not Roth style,I do like a few of Roth's,but they got fugly near the end of his run. By the mid 60's real shows started falling off,them dunebuggys came in. That was the endsvill of what I really liked,still some great stuff being built though.

    Found a Colony Park Wagon in the woods last year. Tracked down the owner because it's on private property but he seems to think is a Barret Jackson collectable so my idea didn't go any further than a couple of doodles,,,

    I love your outside-the-box drawings of what can be done with the wagon, very cool.
    Got anymore?

    I had a good one of the frame concept but I can't find it now. In the round file I guess.
    It was going to be two seats behind the rear axle. Slingshot drag style.
    The seat is in one of those profile sketches. Trunk space would be where the seats normally are... or a tub maybe.
    Rear axle was from a dually pickup using only the outboard wheels. My new GM has a great set of chrome caps...

    I was living in Boca Raton in '78 doing bodywork at the height of the disco and van era.
    Lots of great tunes and wild custom creativity...

    horrible music and bondo nightmares - depending on your mood...

  25. No... this one involves a nash metropolitan I have sitting... it's too gone for restore and even custom... but for hot rod body it'll be perfect... have a 49 ford dash I could incorporate to change up the standard nash dash.

  28. The AlaKart is one of my personal favorite Barris cars... most of his early cars were beautiful.
