    I'd have to build a clone of the Devil, and although it's not a hot rod I'd love to build a clone of Ivo's twin engine dragster.

    I'll ask him if he got any before he made it a single engine. If he does I'll put it up here. Totally wicked. He told me he had all he could do to drive it. Couldn't even begin to step on it without smokin the N-50s even at highway speed:eek:

    I'll just list a few of my favs.

    I'm leaving the Boyce Asquith Deuce, even though wrong period. It's been my favorite for years.

    A lot of good choices on here, tough to pick one. I would build the Mazmanian Willys, or the Vette, both are beautiful cars. Anyone have a good pic of the vette?
    Someone mentioned the Navarro T, that's another one that gets me excited.

    Donn Lowe built this one.... very nice.
  11. Ray Brown's T



    Ak Miller's "Miller's Missile"

    Wes Cooper's banger powered lakes roadster


    The Giovanine/Spurgin '25 Chev lakes roadster is what my roadster is heavily based on, I am not building a clone as I feel there is no use cloning a car that still exists & is to be restored.

    "Ohio" George's 34 Ford or his 33 Willys. My favorite T- Bucket, Roth's Tweedy Pie [except for the purple paint....ugh.] And finally some guy in the early 60s built a T with crank to crank twin 283s with 4-71 blowers. Sorry can't find the mag it was in right now, but I always liked that one a lot.

    If I was going to repicate a car I would be hard pressed to not do a copy of my Dad's 1941 or 1942 built A-V8 on '32 rails. Trying to find a better pic of the car without the relatives blocking the view and not water damaged.

    I've got to agree with your choice Jimmy. Historically significant, innovative and functionally attractive.
