    Long time HAMB member, #101. I seldom post anymore. I lurk, and peruse the classifieds.

    I have lost the early build pics. I had bought some 3x3 square tubing to build a carport, but my wife said no, and we got into a fight. I couldn’t return the cut steel so I decided to use it to build a T bucket.

    Here is the Carpor-T

It’s all British made stuff.

    I had bought the engine in 2014, the intention was to build a sports car, but I couldn’t find a fiberglass body, I had this T body that I had bought years ago sitting around and in a moment of anger I decided to build this thing.

    I am almost finished, just an interior and windshield away. This is 18 months work condensed into this post.

    Because I wanted to keep the Brit theme going I made life hard on myself and made it right hand drive.

    Sorry about the multiple pictures posts. I haven’t posted in years.

    Anyway, because of the odd engine I used I had to make everything from scratch, motors c mounts, transmission mounts, headers, etc. 3FFB0AD3-6E6A-44AB-B74B-90D4E1E4EBC2.jpeg C527817F-2DB4-4540-BEC9-D527744C48CF.jpeg 41F5F46F-88CB-4A3D-BE1F-D41E7F2536A4.jpeg 9F171780-7A48-46CB-8B7C-D4B8B889912D.jpeg 3FFB0AD3-6E6A-44AB-B74B-90D4E1E4EBC2.jpeg

    Those are some nice looking headers that you made from that 3 x 3 tubing!

    Just a caution, that front axle looks like the cast stuff the Chinese are putting out nowadays. Might want to consider switching it out before driving.

    It looks like you already have a carport.....??
    Did your wife stop you from building a carport on your carport?

    I like the lines of the bodywork. Its got 'swagger'. :cool:

    WOW-it seems like years, Nads. Miss your stuff here. Last I remember you doing here was that one of a very few Caddys. Hope to see more stuff from you. Liked the grille even before the next pic of the Edsel insert. Keep it going, glad you posted.

    It's always a happy surprise when someone introduces me to yet another manufacturers hemi that I was not aware of. That looks like a really sweet little motor, and I love the nose on the Carpor-T!

    Great way to reuse! One more letter and you would have Le Sled for a name.

    Right On! (steering wise) - do not think that you will be twisting that frame - liked the blue "carpet" - Father of a friend in High School had a Daimler with the "Baby Hemi" - we all loved it - that motor will have people scratching their heads trying to figure out which model Chrysler it came from

    Pretty wife smiling with the masking tape...Baby Hemi in the re-destined rails...new carport...
    Heck, I'd switch out that China axle and take her for a ride!
