Default Saying goodbye

Well, off it goes on the car hauler to find a new home... I send my builds to my buddy to sell, he lists them on his website, also being in a larger population area, has no problem selling them. I'm out in the toolies by comparison, just not enuf car people to draw on for a sale in any reasonable amount of time.

What's your friends site?
Or better yet, a link to the sale of your truck.
I'm sure I can't afford it & I know I don't have the space...but I like to dream.

I would have had trouble letting go of that one. That is without a doubt the coolest thing anyone ever created from a 50s pickup. IMHO. about 98% of the attempts made to create a fenderless rod from a 50's-60's pickup end up looking like bird squat.

I shouldn't "pile on" but...I have never seen such beautiful, imaginative cars built by one guy in his home garage.

Agreed, very skillfully and tastefully done.

I wish there were more on the road this jaw dropping.

No "piling on" here. I like that he sells them and moves onto something else just as good and just as unique. Gives me something to strive towards (and to read!) True mark of an artist and definately no sophmore slump!

Also made the headers from some old Camaro headers and some 4" pipe to make the cones.
How did you make the cones??
