Things you may not see...

Things you may not see, everyday. I went to Reble Run last weekend in Lima, Ohio and took some pics for you guys/gals. I like anythign with a motor but I reallylike the off the wall stuff. I guess it's just the spice it up kinda thing that gets my creative juices flowing. Here they are, enjoy. I hope I loaded them in the right order. The first is a 48 LaSalle and it had Hawaii (probably not form there) plates on it. It was a really cool BIG car. The second was a 66 Saab with a little trailer. both hardly came to the middle of my chest for height and both together were about as long as my 38 DeSoto. It was a 3 speed 2 cylinder car if I remember right. The third is a 23 C Cab.

The first is a low, low, low 36 Ford with a price tag of 36,000. Way too much in my book but hey, it's not mine. The tail pipe actually touched the ground. The second is a replica of a McDaniel 30 Ford Woody creation and the 3rd a mercury with a camaro rear deck lid and spoiler. Gotta love the old and the new put together. It's amazing to me the time and talent it takes to do one of these.

The first is a lead sled of course. It's not really something you may not see everyday I just enjoyed the flame job. The second is... um... I forget what it was but is was not your run of the mill chevy or ford. Darn... I knew I should have wrote these down when I took the pics. Anyway the third is a stagecoach. That would feel really cool setting behind those pipes tooling down the highway. Wow!

I took a pic of a small scale semi made out of a 66 Ford Econoline but it must've not came out. It's not in the camera. It was really neat too! Had the whole trailer (grain bed styule) with a tarp on it and everything. Lots of thinking to build some of these off the wall rides.

The little Saab is groovey...the trailer too.

The Merc with the Camaro back glass clashes in my opinion.

Cool pics though!!

Thanks for posting those! They make me impatient with my own project and scared at the same time.

That 66 Saab looks a whole lot like a Beetle is hiding in that body.

38,

You got some very interesting car/shots there. And since we're on the subject of unique creations, let me add this car which I saw at "Back to the 50s". At first glance you might think "oh, another boring stocker". That is until you notice the size of the guys standing around the car. No, they're not giants. The car is a near perfect scale reproduction done entirely by the owner. It is street driven and has a motorcycle engine (Ka I believe). And man did it draw the crowds. This thing was just perfect in every detail.

The C cab wan't really unusual, I just love C cabs.
Cool, thanks for the pic Cboy. I thought that was a morris minor or a crosley. Wow! Talk about planning and skill at car building. That's one really nice little car.
