Ok then... how about a trike? Or even cooler a Sand Trike with paddle tires? I think another cool Rig would be a old VW Bus, try and keep it semi stock looking. It would be sweet sleeper. As far as I know it would be very very original.

Ooooh, I'm likin the VW ideas. there used to be a website with the CaddyWagen which was a front-drive caddy frame welded on the back of a bug. That was hot.

Or how about something completely blasphemous, like a classic Ferarri or a Jag E-type

But the intial cost of $1000 plus shipping from England or $3650+ cuz the reserve isn't met, brings the intial cost kinda high before you even start. You could probably find a VW Bug at a junkyard for less. Then you could "Monster Garage" it and get a MONSTER BUG.

The Vdub sounds cool, hook it to a eldorado transaxle.

Challenge, huh?

How about put it in the bed of a mid 70's Datsun PU?

Later, mikey

ccaddy motor

I have a 472 in my 48 inch sawmill. It has too much power. the first logs i cut i over reved it for the blade and made wavey boards. MY son wants to pull it out and put it in a rat rod. I hava a friend who has a 78 caddy on his ranch. I'll try to trade him out of it for the kids rod. easier than changing the sawmill. the big caddy's aren't much heavier than a sbc have a lot of nickle iron in the castings and are long lived

Hehehe....

Build yourself a Boss Hoss bike, with the Cad motor...

That, or a street legal drag bike, with a big fat 33x21.5 Mickey on the back, dual chain drives, and build the chassis so it's in 2 separate halves so the block is a 'stressed' chassis member.
