Brian.. The best part of the whole build: Is seeing what's in your head come to life... I have done a lot to cars... And I have to say.. Doing a custom car is one thing.. But there's a whole different feeling when you do one from nothing... If I was rich.. I would ''ONLY'' build one off cars.. The feeling is something I can't explain..

You are right,you should have seen how dissappointed he was after we worked all day at our jobs and then till 10:30 or 11:00 PM and I was ready to stop for the day. That was in 1995 when we built his LUV truck in I think 3 and a half months.It took first place at the World Of Wheels which was the first show he ever put it in.

No way! He still has to find a SBF to stick in there before he can drive it.

Seriously it's coming along nicely. Wish I could get things done that fast.

I couldn't help but notice the street rod on your first post. The sides lay down to narrow up the roof. Have you considered doing that? It might sporty it up a little, just a little dimension would make a big difference in the look.

Thanks guy's.. I'm really holding back on it right now... Believe it are not,, I waiting on the steel right now and MONEY... But it's a good thing,, The less I do, and the more I look at it, The more the light goes off in my head,,, I didn't plan the rat truck I did on here... Not one thing on it was plan... This one is different .. A lot of through is going into this one.. I really want it to be a one off hot rod...So I want to pay more attention to the small things... I plain on really putting this one out there.. (If it turn's out like I think it will) Still hard to spend on these cars.. But one day it will get better.. Wish I could just sit down and start ordering stuff.. So Thanks again for all the support Guy's.. And I'm glade to be able to show the build here at Hotrodders.com.. The only down side to doing it. What I would call live.. Is if it's a failure.. The world get's to see it flop.. But if it turns out nice.. We all get to see a dream come true right in front of us.. So again Thanks..
It will really look like something once I get the steel.. By the end of this month..

And For you my little western friend,, The ford WON'T HAPPEN !!!! LOL But IF you send me that Hemi, I would gladly put it in this rod.. And I'M not a Hemi man..

I was going to recreate that car,, But It WON'T be mine.. If you know what I mean... As for the sides.. They will lean a little more, But not that much more,, These pictures don't show what this car really look's like in person... My friends seen pictures, And said I would change this in that on it, Then came seen it in person, And said : DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING !!!! In person, the car is a lot smaller then in the picture.. Everyone that came see it so far said it will be so cool... The look on there face is priceless...

I didn't want it looking to cartoonist.. Nice ,cool and something very different.. And still be drivable..

That is one thing I like about the original ice wagon is how small it was. I think you are on the right track, make it your own.

Brian.. I didn't ever see it in person, But if I could fly in see it tomorrow, I would.. Yes it was know for what it was, That's how I would like mine to be know as it is... And yes from the pictures I seen of it,, It was small !!!


Mine isn't very big at all.. Just look at me standing next to it.. I'm 6' around 240 lbs..

I got a good idea as I went back looking for the photo of you next to it an saw that the darn body is only as high as your floor jack handle! *** damn it IS small.

You guys building stuff from scratch fires me up. Don't get me wrong I am not doing **** right now out in the garage and certainly not a project like that. But it fires me up to see what you will do next.
