Sorry my main man Woody(typing on cell phone)...... all i was saying is that i stalk the "current posts" hourly, and everytime i see **DEATH** in the current talk i have to check it. I check hoping that its a link to a classified that is offering this little gem up for sale. The current owner has some bug painted up like a cincinatti bengal, "the jungle bug" I believe its called, offered for sale. Ive contemplated calling on it so I have an excuse to make an offer on *DEATH* ............ ( my wife likely would give me a death sentence) oh and as far as the tingle, its the feeling in the front of my pants that i get everytime i see pics of this car........ Its sort of like 2 Q-tips going crazy in my ears........TIGER BLOOD

I feel like I've spoken too much on this subject so I'll leave it at this. Franz made death outa mostly ramshackle left over bits and pieces, and made it look "right"...without the use of chrome thingamajigs and flashy whatchacallits.

Some mofo's have a blank check and can't pull off a good looking ride.

I guess all I'm trying to say is, it's an art to make a car or bike or whatever look "right". The KCW guys pull it off time and time again.

And the more people can't put their finger on why it just looks "right" is a testiment to the builder...and their sense of rightness.

Ok now I've confused myself.

With all due respect Jeremy , you are very wrong. I ran a body shop for years and been around builders and customizers since my preteen years (I'm 64 now) and very few of those people could have pulled of this build. It's not the tools, it's the vision.

That's cos only you guys and us Brits can handle people ripping into them. We like to whip back at the odd "Septic-Tank" and show they are no better than us. We are used to people telling us how crap we are but we know that we are the elite!!! ;-)


(Now watch some Gung-Ho jock try to knock us down again lol)

I got the same problem with this damn Iphone, I could text like a Mofo with my BlackBerry, but Ill get this thing down. Oh and if Death does come up for sale Im sure youll have a little bit of a bidding war to deal with, the car just has "it" every true car guy knows what "it" is, some customs have it and some dont.

It looks like someone got their inspiration from Death, but that just might be my woman eyes.
