    1948 Dodge Panel truck.... It has red lights on the fenders, and a spotlight on the back of the roof in the loading area...I think it was either an ambulance, or a CORONERS WAGON!!!


    It has all the trim/bumpers/etc in the back, and is pretty solid!

    The golf cart was a 1990 or so Yamaha gas cart...it ran good, but has seen better days.

    Thanks! I'm thinking of doing it "drag-style" with a moon tank, slicks, and a white paintjob with "County Coroner" on the sides, and "The Meat Wagon" and a Roth-style monster on a gurny with a big V-8 on the panel sides!

    I was going to just put a 413 or something in it, but a buddy is trying to convince me to go the S-10 frame route with a SBC....

    The front axel is tweaked, so that might be an option...I haven't decided yet.

    I vote Ambulance... Not much need for emergency lights on a coroner wagon... It's a bit too late.

    It was sweet....But not as sweet as the Lime green monster cart with the ATV tires that replaced it! The way I'm going...I could probably trade that one for a Hemi Road Runner!

    Rashy you're right....not much need for sirens, and lights for just a "pick-up".
     
  10. Isn't that an oxymoron??

    Dude....That golf cart was bad-ass! Back in the day it was good for yard skiing...I think this was taken just moments before I put Noodles into a sappling! His glasses flew off and landed about 30ft away....he was hurt pretty good...we all had to haul ass before he came to!

    You can also see in that pic of the cart where some asshole threw a FULL can of Mountain Dew at me and busted the top windshield! I have it folded down in the pic.
     
  19. AMEN to that! Put that 413 and auto in that puppy, run a set of 3.55 gears in it, and do the coroner wagon bit with it, you are set to go!

    I had a '72 Challenger Rallye (R/T) with a transplanted 440 Magnum...It was the most powerful car I have ever owned...not the fastest, but it had the most scarry, brute, force, to the wheels ever!
