    I bought the 999 car that was built by Clark Bates and brought it back close to it’s original home. I will be making some small changes but won’t change the original character of the car. I can’t wait for some warm weather.

    Look like wiping the dust off it was about all it needed anyhow.

    Nice example of the minimalist approach to Hot Rodding.

  9. Clark builds some cool-ass cars, yours included. Congrats on the acquisition.
     
  10. Clark is a great guy, and builds cool bare bones cars. I have seen the 999 car many times and like it. Congrats on getting the car. Looks good cleaned up, almost everytime I have seen it she had mud on her dress. LOL.:eek: Have fun with it.;):)

    Haven't seen this car for a few years, a guy in Florida had it for a short time. Looks good

    I bought 1 ostrich hide and a few lamb hides off of ebay and cut new boards and wrapped them myself. It's not perfect , but I am happy with it
