    Two months ago we were blessed with our first grandchild Wyatt William Shull. I believe it is in our best interest to introduce our next generations to the 'joys of HotRodding' as they were introduced to us. In my case Uncle Bill and my dad hand built a '30's Indy style roadster of hand hammered steel and a one-off trans/engine combination one lunger we lovingly called the 'putt-putt'! More recently they have been called CycleKarts.
    So; I shall build one for Wyatt, in this case a small scale rendition of my '27 track roadster dream car. Here's where I could use a little help; are there any plans available for the specific body dimensions to build a wooden 'buck' for forming the body panels? If I can't find any I'll just figure on some good ol' hot-roddin' engineerin' and eyeball what she needs to look like. Let the next legacy begin!
