    I was at my buddy's garage this morning and took a picture of his Model A that he put together about 15 years ago. Zephyr motor with homemade aluminum head covers. Also his collection of Cushman motor scooters. Just thought I'd share this with you guys.

    Outrageous proportions, with the long engine in the chopped and channeled body!

    Flames down the body sides the same color as the engine block. Now, that puts HOT, in hot rod. That is just one wild looking ride!

  13. I have seen this car up close, it is very well done! The head covers fooled me at first......they look like real finned heads.

    Certainly has better styling/proportions than the original Hot Rod Lincoln:eek:

    Bob has quite a few original Cushman motor scooters and he built some other ones on later Model Scooter chassis. Good eye!
