    First off I have spent most of the summer screwing off, going out on the boat, ridin my chopper trike, cruisin my 40 ford and 55 chev, I got to tell you that it bothered me some being so non productive in the shop but I did manage to get this zinger clone mocked up. It is now all apart for bodywork,paint and chrome

    here are some pics of my distractions. the 55

    now for pics of the zinger, the body is an old go kart body that looks just like the 1 Tansy used on the original zinger, it is in pretty sad shape and needs some fiberglass repair (itch itch)

    If it's a fake(plastic) block, it would be cool to hide a briggs motor in there so you could actualy cruise around in it!!

    Its a real block, at best it would have to be remote control, it is real small

    Is that a boss 429? In a what is essentially a go-kart? A Boss 429 powered go-kart? You rule.

    the heads are junk, the valve covers are repops and the block is a 460. no good boss 429's were sacrificed for this project.

  30. Mark I gotta tell ya man... You're a pervert. Not only do you have to tell us about the "screwing off" you did... but you showed us pornographic pictures. I might just call that in. I'm sure the law will understand.
