    Nobody builds a field car like Plowboy! You're pretty alright in my book, even IF you dig hairbands.

  4. It has a Weesner'ish drawing element about it.
    Short wheelbase is the key.
    I dig it!

    I thought I was just weird, and that all those stretched-out things were "the rage." I can't stand that shit, with an extra foot of rusty 2x3 channel exposed just to fit a smog-era Oldsmobile engine, serpentine belt, Black Magic fan, and a 2-liter of Tab for an overflow.

    Truck looks cool as hell to me. Proportions are spot-on.

    The Vicky got traded for a 61 Corvette. This is my new winter beater.

    The Sinclair dinosaur is available, but it is made of concrete, so I don't think you want to pay the shipping. ha ha Eventually it will make it to the back yard next to my Koi pond and Sinclair sign.... when I get enough people over to help me move it, that is.

    Looks good man. Here's one I built a few years ago. I loved that thing, drive it nearly every day in the summer for 3 years. Finished off the roof seams but never got to paint it. Got an offer from a guy in florida to buy it that was just too good to pass up.

    proportions are right and imagine the grill shell does not sit a foot above the cowl and the ass a foot below the front.

    You know, for a guy that shits on his front porch, you do some pretty damned good work.

    The truck is bitchin', though I must say that I am not crazy about the color.

    However, since it is your pooch, you are entitled to screw it however you like. ;)

    If past is prologue, it'll turn out just fine.
