Wanted to post up and show another one of my multiple sidetracks that keep me from getting anything actually finished. Franz was having a weak moment (or maybe it was a moment of clarity?) and I was able to talk him out of that sweet gondola from a few years back Smile Smile Smile Smile i've wasted many many hours rebuilding the entire bottom third of the thing with B grade metalwork and added some wheels so I can roll it around, stare at it wonder why I ever bought or started to build the stupid thing!!! Smile \:D/

For the same reason I talked Franz out of the frame it was on. I haven't done much yet. Mounted a swing axle T3 trans (for mid engine) and working on dually rims for it. Rounding up odds & ends stuff to build a body over it.

911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

Speaking of sidetracks, I need to sell that 58 bug that I bought impulsively or I'm gonna waste more time and money on it or I'll end up parting that thing out for my Oval, anybody interested???
