    I think we have a winner for the "what have you found in your old car?" thread.

    "Kustom karma"

    This thread made my day/month/year.
    Like everyone has said it sure went to the right person. The only way this could get better is if they find your Wagon and it's restored haha.

    If you find more pics of his bike please post them!! I'm building something similar.

  7. That would be the dot over the i if the wagon surfaced on top of it all! :)

    Currently I'm searching for a 3x2 manifold to smallblock Chevy for a reasonable price. Preferable with carbs! :)

    Man that Triumph is awesome. What ever happened to it?

    The little Honda is pretty cool too. You meet the nicest people on those.

    Oh man. Nice!
    Would be cool to find the bike too!

    This is what I'm building. My dad bought it in '69 as a basket case. I just found a set of those pipes. It took over 10 years!

    For some reason the phone ap isn't letting me post a picture. I so it tomorrow from the desktop. .

  21. Don't worry guys, Greyhound was nice. Me and Alex listened to country music and ate sandwiches. But if someone out there could give us a ride to LA tomorrow, it would be highly aporeciated!!

    I'm sure some cool cat will offer a ride... I wish I was going west but went eastbound!

    I was blown away by how nice everyone was at the show. I had never been to VLV before but will try to go back for sure!!!

    seriously though you better put a GPS on that baby and get a hell of a security system on the shop. Also I would'nt reccomend advertising when you will be away such as in VLV this weekend. It sucks to have to be paranoid that way but people use social media to help them commit crimes like this all the time. This is like leaving the louvre unlocked as your truck is a valuable piece of ART

    and as far as I know we still can't shoot people for those kind of crimes.
