Now that is some engineering...........where is Jesse James when you need him.
D A M N ...DOUBLE D A M N !!!
OR SHOULD I SAY QUADRUPLE DAMN !!
ARE THOSE ALLISON ENGINES OR ROLLS ROYCE?
holy shit...just thinking about sitting behind the wheel in that thing makes me tingle in ways my girlfriend could only dream of
yeah, but with gas prices the way they are ... and insurance! I don't even want to thik what it would cost to cover that thing.
but seriously - that is some engineering that just makes me feel reeely dum.
whaaa!! you'd think they could have found a guy with a tube bender
This site has a little info on the car. And how it sits now.
I've seen this chassis in person and it's way cool. I hope he can find the Allisons to finish it. I'm pretty certain the owner wants to remain anonymous but he knows who I am and I have a lead for him on some engines if he wants.
and he's got alot of other "interesting" rides......would be cool to see it out .....brandon
"In 1965, you could buy Allisons all day long for 50 to 150 bucks"
Now- "They’re getting 40 grand for a used, 60-year-old engine"
