Gonna work on some Baywindows today! Finishing up the fastback later this week!

I turned 30 Friday, still feel like I'm 20. But glad I'm not 20! Age is just a number!

[quote="john jones"]the tri vator would flip people out... Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

But... i'm XXX sure it's worth the effort it would take to make it awesome... :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k


I don't know. It is pretty much along the the lines of a streetable sand rail. At KCW speed this thing could be pretty wild very fast. A couple examples of the few that got finished.

Side by side, but pretty snug. I'll be out at the ranch later today and if I can remember to bring the camera I'll snap a pic.

That has always been a thought. Or a seriously narrowed and dropped VW beam.
