As near as I can tell, someone destroyed a Karman Gia and a Yamaha XS650 in order to make this. The only cool thing is how the halves of the Gia come together in the middle to form a kind of fighter plane bubble cockpit. Does it look like the steering head from the bike […]
Did the body work himself
If you, like me, never graduated from the ball peen hammer, Bondo and rattle can primer school of auto body repair, you are not alone. In my writing for Eastwood and visit to the SEMA show I discovered this classic how to manual on shaping metal called The Key to Metal Bumping by Martin Tool […]
More gold from Craigslist, via the cars for sale section of the 24 Hours of Lemons forum. Its the Poser Mobile! I’m assuming used by Poserman, who travels the cities of the Pacific Northwest telling saving people from posers and telling bad guys their scene is OVER!!! From the look of this I’m assuming Poserman […]
The “Cars for Sale” section of the 24 Hours of Lemons Forum is like having hundreds of crazy car nuts sifting thru and posting the worst of Craigslist every day, which is where I found this: http://muskegon.craigslist.org/cto/4164718647.html Sorry, the seller doesn’t have much to offer in the way of textual details, he lets the pictures […]
So what do you drive on your weekend run to the hardware store while doing errands? Many people have a dedicated, slightly beat up, more utilitarian vehicle just for this purpose. If this is “I <3 Neddy” weekend errand runner I have to wonder what else is in the garage? Of course, since a mid-80s […]
Back in June of 2011 I spotted this off-road ready Mercedes Benz Gazelle replica kit car in the parking lot of the junk yard. Well, today I saw it cruising down the street and it appears to have sprouted a full off road spec roll cage since the last time I saw it.
Not a hell of a lot of information on this one, but lets go from what we can see. It looks like a 1st generation Honda Goldwing GL1000 front end, welded to a modified 70s Toyota pick up truck, powered by what looks to be a GM 2.8 FWD 60 degree V6 driver train from […]
Who knew Ford was considering a modern version of the Ranchero in 1995? Or would it be a new Durango (The Durango was a limited production Fairmont Futura based truck circa 1978) ? Naw, surely Ford, or anyone with half a brain would have figured out how to remove the rear quarter windows, instead of […]
How about WTF for one? Spotted this, not surprisingly, in the parking lot of Harbor Freight. Its a big of a mythical beast. I’d heard mention of it prowling the wilds of the valley. I had been texted blurry photos with what looked like Sasquatch driving it. One thing is certain though, the owner of […]
Spotted this at the hardware store. Maybe they were stocking up on sandpaper and bondo? Its hard to see in the pictures, but the doors wouldn’t close all the way either.
