I got ripped off on the new cab, the parts i needed, the rear window and the drip rails were forklifted to death. I know better than to try for a refund. I think i have had it with this game. I'm selling what i can, and junking the rest.

I know i wasn't a real rodder, but i was having fun, in my ignorant way. No more.

I need to get up $4,000 for a CNC router, and make some classier guitars. And try and sell a damn novel.

See ya, have fun.

Well, i cant seem to get started on anything i actually need to do. I was thinking of buying a van to carry my guitars and amps, i seem to be playing out a lot. When i came to drop a grand, the crappy paint on the Purple Thing kept whining at me. So i went and bought another cab, and plan to make this like the Frankenwagen, as in the third picture.

Only 200.00. So for the grand a van would cost, i can do this, put in a real good stereo, and maybe even an automatic.


While waiting for the cab, i took the bed off the PT and laid it on the Buck mobile, also awaiting inspiration.. Looks kinda good.

Continuing as before. The big patch on the underside of the hood is where somebody left a can of paint or something on the hood for twenty years and it rotted all the way through.. Such fun. Good thing wire is cheap.

Got caught up on guitar making, took a whole day off to get something like a hood on this POS and paint if for the show July 4th. The hood is thin as paper and mostly rust, but i'm too dumb to care much.

Pic 1...The way it started

Pic 2 ... A patch

Well, i didn't win the ugliest car contest, amazingly enough. Finally got to work today. No pix. Fixed an engine dolly that i managed to break last winter, cleaned up, and started to cut down the stock bumpers to make a grill shell. Looks like i can use that Mercedes grill i had on the Ratster last year.

Mostly i did inventory to see what i needed to buy in the way of tools and blades to get rolling.

I think i will post the Picture of Ms. Ratster Laurie Russell painted last year for me. Just for moral purposes.

The name of the 61 C-10 roadster is "Buckette Rodgers" and Laurie is working on a logo for that one too.
