I'll tell you this Dream Machines show is one of the best ever. People encouraging you to get into their cars, it's very cool.

Photos below show my son in the same car, also with the windshield on. And the other one is a car where you lay prone.

There will be everything there from a Jet dragster firing up, a vintage Hemi powered air raid siren (that they fired up!) F18 fighter, P-51 restored Gray Hound buses, steam powered tractors, we Ferraris, low riders, we are talking EVERYTHING that moves human beings. http://www.miramarevents.com/dreammachines/

Sorry for the semi highjack of your thread.

Brian

well yesterday we got the head light brakets made up and welded to the frame gives it an 1800's kinda look. the body is thin steel so making body mounts comes next using light weight angle, mig that to the sides of the body set at the lowest heat setting then drill and tap the frame then i can start the body work filling holes from the old handles and the trimm prime and paint. getting there everyday

ok let me see if this works kool idea Randy thanks my friend. you too speedy with the freeze plug idea i just bought a set for the engine front and rear carbs im gonna take the choke plate out as i was told it will run on the just the center carb when starting till the other 2 kick in i was trying to come up with an idea for a scoop fashioned like an old style western coffin then i got thinking of using one of those newspaper boxes buy one in black airbrush some lighting bolts over a cemetery sceen i think thats what the guy used on that pumkin car for a scoop also picked like 7 yrds of purple crushed velvet for the interior and 1/2" H/D foam for the lid button tuff the center section of the lid still got a long way to go
