Might be ok with a roll cage in it ...........I think it would be kind of cool Kind of a 70s custom vibe......engines gotta be chrome with some 5 spoke sprint wheels(maybe wagon wheels would be more approiate) sprint style headers and wild horses in 70s style lettering on the back :thumbup:

I actually like the 70s style on some things look at the barn find camaro in hotrod with the cobweb stripes :drool:

i think pepes just funnin with you, i say go for it after all that is what hot rodding is all about. its not a new idea, i remember in the late 60s there was a show car that had some crazy stage coach-hearse body thing with a big chrome engine inside it and the driver sat where the old stage coach drivers sat, cant remember what they called it but it was in several mags. your idea sounds tame by comparison. :thumbup:

sounds like fun... :rolleyes:

just don't put any pics of it here unless it has front brakes, you'll be sorry.

That being said, here is a cool place for you to see some other woodies, (that is what rosen5000 is talking about here, even if it isnt the more conventional car that you'd want to hang a surfboard out the back of),

http://www.oldwoodies.com/gallery.htm

Start browsing the gallery, there is all kind of fun stuff in there. :thumbup:

I know which one you are talking about, IIRC it was a old horse drawn hearse, it had the motor where the casket was, zoomies coming out the sides and Cragars on it..(everything had cragars on it then...)

I can't find a pic of it anywhere. :(

Might it be called "Boot hill express"?? When I was a kid, I always wanted build one like that when I "grew up", unfortunately I haven't grown up yet! LOL
