AMEN to that Plowboy!!! We have a winner!
Nobody builds a field car like Plowboy! You're pretty alright in my book, even IF you dig hairbands.
What NOOOO spider webs ?
Seriously tho thats BADASS !!!
It has a Weesner'ish drawing element about it.
Short wheelbase is the key.
I dig it!
bout time you got back on 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.
Proportion and stance, right on.
You must've had a busy morning. So what did you get done after lunch?
Hey, those door hinge pins arent period correct from dec. 12, 1959 to oct. 3 1963...pffffft what a ripp off . ...looks good man!
damn , i love it!
careful.....your gonna start a trend...heheheheh
I like it anyway. Paint it with glitter!
As always....looks spot on.
What happened to the Vicky?
Cute truck n all, I really like it. But, I gotta ask, where did you come up with the cute baby dino in the back ground? I totally need me one of those.
Vamos a la Coahuila!
Maybe you can take Cinderella to the Headbangers Ball...hahahahaha
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.
Everybody knows those short wheelbase trucks are gee aaaayyy why.
Might be the angle of the photo, but I think I like yours better! Love those mopar wheels on there too, perfect! Maybe paint some lot lizards on the door, haha
Headbangers Ball was the BEST thing that was ever on MTV - bar none
wondered where ya went....
trucks looking good
It looks swell...
Good looking HOT ROD.
Paint it? I love it just the way it is!!! Great job!
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 won't get any hate here, I love bobbers and yours is very cool.
I just sent this thread to a friend that needs to build his like this.....Looks excellent. Have you considered doing a bubbletop?????
Of course. Cool.
Looks good man... Is it the angle the pic was taken or is the cab an inch or 2 below the bed... Bottom to bottom... Love the length though man
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.
