    WTF are those? Looks like bay junk.

    Is there more to the funky green story???  Partner buy out? No competition clause?

    Been a wild ride, but it got me here 😎

    And Rusty doesn’t own a “Thing” anymore 🤫

     

    I am genuinely worried about the future of the availability of funky green metal.

    If there is a new sheriff in town for bus sheet metal…. I’m surprised they never reached out to me!???🤔🤔🤔

    And no metal, even with other places making metal it will still make restoring a bus nearly impossible.

    I just put in some WW front floor sections in a Bay and it looked like they came directly from the VW factory.  Flawless.

    Autocraft in the UK has nice stuff, too. And it looks like WW stocks a lot of it. What would the VW scene be like without Wolfsburg West!?!?

    IMG_4785Oh darn, look what ended up on my trailer! A Wells Coyote. Best hill climb race car ever built. I got it for practically nothing but it needs a lot of love. However, just now I am finishing with my homebrew Hayabusa hill climb car I have spent the past year building from scratch, the Coyote will have to go straight to a back burner project. Since it was last raced with Colorado Hill Climb Association it has been robbed of its built subi engine and bus trans. It now has a ragged looking subi and type 1 trans from a sand rail. Probably going to need trans work to fix drive direction since it’s mid engine, and missing all the shift linkage. Sigh- another project 🙂

    It is. I hitched a ride with my mom as she was going to Phoenix for a craft fair. I’m surprised she let me bring along my old sketchy trailer but it worked out great. Traded a CBR600f4 from my junk yard. I’m over the moon happy about the deal. But as most good deals go: now the hard work begins 🙂

    Just use a subie trans Newbold. Stronger and it’s pointed in the right direction without mods for mid engine config.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    That thing should be restored.  VERY desirable race cars built for Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, I believe.  A true collectors item.

     

    Funny, I was just at the bar this week and met Gay Smith who is in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb hall of fame.
