Like the front...not too sure about the rear...let that one cook some more....
Not a real project ,but something I did on the computor.
But would be a dare to be different Woody.
Probably the only time this could be put on the HAMB, the old mans cluster truck
Thats a nice look twochops!
The ElCamino guys would probably cry foul though.
different enough for me
Post up more please.
I'll second that.
Wow. There is a lot of stuff in this thread. Some I want to see more of, and some I wish I never saw!
Wow is definitely the word, though.
more of that buick!
I'd definitely like to see more of that truck too!
Its a 36 cab, 60 olds rear end, running olds drivetrain, the olds portion will slide back and lift to expose the rear wheels, still plenty to do yet.
Sorry only two pics I have at work.
here is an interesting way to configure your 59 elcamino...
thanks guys for asking for more of the cluster truck..................sometimes you get what you ask for hahah
Well I thought my car was different, since I had never seen another one on the road let alone with an axle, but I've seen a dozen pre-64 Comets in the past year. Looks like I got in when the getting was good. Can a car that wasn't ever that popular make a comeback?
Here's a couple.....
Just saw this thread.
Len... I liked your posts of the build-up of the once-was-a-bug. Very nice.
However, if you would have had pictures like THAT all the time you would have been a favorite post for everyone, even if they didn't like the fact that it started as a bug!
Good to see you online. Hope the health is good.
I don't have any pics but I have a 74 Land Cruizer with a sbc and bus tires with chains. Talk about fun in.. well.. anything! Body is off of it now.
this is my daily driver s-10 with 35ford wire wheels rain sleet snow
Yeah, how'd you move it there to get that photo with no snow on the ground?
some cool stuff posted here good thread
Diversstreetrods.com the Rambler i helped on... oh wait that was in there
Now THIS is "dare to be different" done right, verry kool
The Hupp will keep up with traffic. I've got pretty tall gears and tall tires, so it does not launch real quick but once rolling and you hammer it, it'll snap your head back. Here's are a couple pics of my 48 Stude convert. It looks a lot like a '50 as I used a lot of '50 sheetmetal. In the Stude I'm running an LT1 with much lower gears and it's quite quick of the line.
The Rambler is sweet
That s-10 is kinda cool with those wheels. My magnum has torque thrust Ms I wanted Ds but they didn't come in 18s. My old wheels had 17s and I didn't want to ruin the ride of the car. I also got the widest width you could fit on the rears with 10inch and 9 inch on the front. The car looks awesome with huge meats, the hot rodder at heart! Also had to take a chunk of plastic out of the rear wheel wells to get the tires from rubbing.
If you mind, not hamb friendly, but it's my daily driver. I did get it pinstriped! I dare to be different my friends also!!!!
Thumbnails not offend those with those huge pictures lol
Interesting.....cant quite tell if I love it or hate it.
There is a ton of talent and imagination out there.
yeah man. lotta skills there.
cool little car.
I'll say it, I DIG IT!
This isn't different.... it's just FUGLY!
The Magnum looks killer with the Torque Thrusts!! Now some 61 Dodge taillights would look great....
