You know, one thing I see when I look at a lot of these beauties is some of them had to be awful to actually Drive! If you look at some of the steering wheel to seat relationships, I think I would be driving to a chiropractor after 30 minutes!
And I know they weren't designed for that but still...If it's cool and it's mine (or even if it isn't) I want to Drive It!
I guess I have such a Performance Bug that I can't get past that.

LOL, it is funny you should bring that up. When I was a kid I knew of a C cab Model T rod that looked a lot like the Milk truck. It actually was made from a T cowl and the rest was sheets of fiberglassed plywood. It was powered by a 671 blown 392 Hemi. Anyway, it was in a garage of a neighbor and I climbed up in the drivers seat. Now, mind you , I was only about 12 or 15 or something like that. I was a little guy weighing about 100 pounds soaking wet. Anyway, this T had the steering column vertical like the Milk truck. It was a friggin torture chamber! Oh my God, I remember climbing up into that thing and thinking how in the hell does he drive it without having cramps in his back, arms or legs, it was horrible.

Well, the funny thing about you bring it up is that I just saw this truck for the first time in about 25 years a day or so ago! No kidding, I saw the thing coming down the main street in town and as it passed going the opposite way I was going, I didn't look at the car, the motor, nothing but the driver. All I remembered about it is what a torture chamber it was and I was wondering how in the hell was this guy driving it and low and behold it was the same guy who owned it 25 years ago.

He was hunched over the wheel like well, as my late father would say "A monkey making love to a foot ball" (only with the popular four letter word inserted ).

Here some old one's I just found. The one I like the most is the one with the pool table made on the back.Can't find it any where's. In the first pics you can see the pin ball car on the side.It had a pin ball table built into the back of it.

I was going to build a C-Cab, perfect project for a woodworker, but had the "too many projects" problem. I did build a teardrop camper and learned a lot about building curves from wood, if anybody wants to know.

And i remember somebody on this list saying that the only thing vertical steering wheels were good for was "broken ribs" A word to the wise.

but those were some funny pictures.. I like "Engine 13" the best.
