    Very cool looking .. I can picture the big rear tires and a tricked out nail head ... Hilborn or Crowler Injection .. big stacks !
     
  6. My favorite has to be the Paddy Wagon! Don't have any pic's. I bet you could get all kinds of ideas from the model kit though...

    Very cool! I've always liked this style body. Could you give us some details on the body?

    Years ago I had an opportunity to visit Dan Woods, at Contemporary Carriage Works, and he had a couple of these in progress. They had beautiful wood structures and then he had skins formed for the rest of the body from sheet metal.

    Is this how yours is built as well?
