Hideousity Part II

Looking for model A's on e-bay is becoming scarier and scarier by the day. Remember the model A "deuce coupe" with cartoon interior and on an S-10 frame...well the lil coupe has a big daddy, the sedan. Here she his...

Before you see it, I must warn you, it might hurt your eyes....




Ready?










BAM!



It's on a Blazer frame

He did a better job at hiding the front setup which is cool, but he didnt quite get the measurements right. Cool rod I guess

Was it really that hard to just shorten the frame? And If I was gonna sell a car, I would at least try and make it look like it has good tires on it!
Put some different rims on it, and paint it some other color besides Dust, and It would be a lot better.
At least this one doesn't have tweety bird all over it

HOLD ON!!!! How can you honestly build something like this....stand back when you are done and say "She's a beaut' Clark"?! "I have one of the baddest rods in town"....
Someone has to buy that mess on wheels and save it from further humility. It looks like if you would slam on the brakes too hard you would pull the back tires off the ground and scrape the nose on pavement.

Someone please tell me why I try to build something cool looking? So I can sit beside something like that at a cruise in?!

Later,
WEIMER

I love the way he integrated the front fender brackets into the frame. It looks like they are'nt even there. What a waste of a good body.

Buy it for the body???!!???

All these people read mags and read how people sub-frame and front-clip their rods for better handling, so they think "hm...lets go to the junkyard and pick ourselves a nice subframe" the then they weld it on, put the body back on an woooooooooooooops, did we forget to measure?????

What a dumb as! It looks like he forgot to secure the IFS to the frame before he test drove it. When he steped on the brakes the body and chasis slid forward a few inches. MOS, be sure to tighten and recheck ALL bolts and nuts to be sure everything is secure.
