Hey Randy, I love your new project and it reminded me of back in the 70's I worked for a chassis builder ( Wolverine Chassis ) they mainly built 1/4 mile pro stocks like for Bob Glidden, Jack Roush, etc. but one of the cars we built was for Roach Studios Cali. and it was called the Roachmobile I have pics of the build around here somewhere and it reminds me of what your doing now. Man those where the days. You really sound like your having fun. Man you are a natural fabricator and really build some cool stuff .Very impressive work. I'll love watching " The Pie Wagon " come together Neil

That was true custom built cars to me... I love all of them from the 60's and 70's... Something we don't get to see much of anymore.... If I can help it... I ''WILL'' build more of them, Starting with this c-Cab... And believe me there is more on the drawing table....

A friend ask me just last night if I wanted to build him a Custom Radio Flyer Wagon car..... I said... SURE !!!!

That's it all right I remember the day the eyes ( windshield )was delivered.I made the exhaust and that engine is so rare notice it's a side draft, the exhaust is where intake would normally be, Jag independent rear, just made lots of pieces for that car. We mainly built Pro Stocks in the early to mid 70,s. I think that car was finished in 74. I mainly did roll cages and lots of parts under Tom Smith's direction.I didn't make much money there but on race day we were always up front rubbing elbows with all the big boys, it was fun. Neil

Well !!!! the C-Cab was able to see light today for the first time.. Thanks to my good friend Speedydeedy... He hooked me up with a front end... I been needing one for mocking up these cars... But will work great until I can buy My front end for the c-cab... And now I have a mock up axle.... Also My good friend Iron man Joe gave me a custom set of front wheels to put on the front.. (Not really custom) But will make it where I can roll it around now... So I just had to roll it out in the sun.... So I thought I would post them..
