I hadn't seen that car, nice. :thumb:

Always carry a spare.

I'm always amazed to see perfectly good vehicles sitting in weeds, unused if not abandoned. ;)

Lamplighter 02-25-2015 03:24 PM

Not unused and not abandoned... it's still guarding the herd from within.

I love this trunk this guy must have thousands of hours in it. I posted the sumbitch yesterday and today it's gone. I'm sure I previewed and never submitted. If I had a nickel for every time I've done that I could rent a prostitute.. from a high class agency... for six months. :smack:

Does that say



xoxoxoBruce 02-26-2015 04:03 PM

Yes it does. They call the owner/builder Metal Man, and he calls the truck the Ogre. :thumb:
The pictures were taken at a show in Radium, BC, but they drove much of a day to get there so I'm not sure what province they live in.

Park bench.

Gravdigr 02-27-2015 01:29 PM

It could do without the tailgate chain latches, but, :devil:!!

Gravdigr 02-27-2015 01:33 PM

Around here, shitty truck rally rims like those go for $100 set. That set of rims alone would bring $200-$400 including caps and trim rings.

Way cool bench.

There's been a lot of outdoor benches and indoor couches lately. The problem with the couches or love seats, is they have the rear bumper on and that would be real uncomfortable sitting as well as more difficult getting up and down. The outdoor benches don't have that problem.

Yellow Cab in Chicago, 1940. The sound? Oh that's just Ralph Nader having a conniption. ;)

Gravdigr 03-13-2015 01:33 PM

The somewhat strange front end, the almost-absorbed rear fenders, sunroof, roof vent, and rumble seat...

What the hell kind of car is that?

xoxoxoBruce 03-13-2015 04:32 PM

I think it's a 1940 Checker.

That was fairly interesting. I only glanced through it, I'll read it in full later.


Attachment 50670

Yeah, no. Just, no.

glatt 03-16-2015 03:10 PM

I should have commented. It thought it was really interesting. You can really see the progress. When you go from here back to the beginning, you don't even recognize them, but with the incremental changes you do.

Interesting that there was no Checker A-11, but I guess that would be to obvious.

Why not? Quiet, comfy, just not economical at the time with an 11 mile range and expensive maintenance. Is it because on September 13, 1899, the first American to be killed by an automobile was run over by one of these? ;)

Gravdigr 03-17-2015 04:59 PM

I don't think I'd like being the bumper.

Also, that first American victim was probably pitched outta the thing before it ran him over.

xoxoxoBruce 03-17-2015 05:17 PM

They only went as fast as the horse draw Hansoms, probably not over 10 or 12 mph most of the time.
The seating choice is the front end of a battery, or back end of a horse.

I love the look, however, I know any vehicle where the four fenders protrude from the sides, has less room inside the cab and/or cargo area than it could have on that wheelbase. I know this because I drive one.

I feel like we've seen that one before. Not that picture, but that truck.

Edit: Similar to post 163.

fargon 03-18-2015 02:53 PM

The truck is similar, the truck in post 163 has twin turbochargers the total go fast machine. But like most rat rods they do best at smoky burn-outs.
Like this:, stuff like that gives me a hard on.

fargon 03-18-2015 02:55 PM

That is from the same magazine that the truck in post 451 was in.

1960 ad for a Brit motorbike. What is 56 gns?

BigV 03-19-2015 09:41 PM


xoxoxoBruce 03-20-2015 02:15 AM

guineas? I thought they used pounds sterling.

Gravdigr 03-20-2015 01:40 PM

Guineas? What kind? Hens? Pigs? Pygmies? New Guineas? What???

I thought guineas came in a pint glass? How many glasses does it take for 56 of them?

limey 03-20-2015 02:38 PM

A guinea is one pound and one shilling.

Sent by thought transference

glatt 03-20-2015 03:01 PM

And that's why we can't have nice things, and the metric system had to be invented.

xoxoxoBruce 03-20-2015 06:34 PM

Aha, so when the customer pays a guinea, the boss gets a pound and the minions split a shilling. Someday when I'm bright eyed and bushy tailed, I'll find out how that system worked...

I don't see that happening soon. :confused:

I talked to Uncle Asshole the other day. He's bought a new toy. He'll buy an old beat up car/truck, for next to nothing, work on it for a year and then someone will drive by and see it, and buy it for a ton of money.

This one's a 67 GeeTeeOh, with a pretty sweet vintage set of Chevrolet Rally rims.

12 years in a barn. Shoved and bounced the car around to mix up the gas that was in the tank all that time, a shot of ether in the carb. He said it turned over about ten times and fired up. He let it run a few seconds then killed it so no more of that ugly gas than necessary went into the carb. 400 Pontiac, vintage Holley double-pumper, headers. He said it sounded a little lumpy, like it may have a big(ger) cam.

He won't have any trouble flipping that. If it was a Chevelle he'd have to make it presentable for max profit, but goat lovers are gluttons for punishment. :haha:

These came on my '66.

Link to crazy man in front of crazier car with bizarre rims... (Language NSFW)

FTR - I understood about 20% of the apparent words that were coming out of his mouth. Pic for those not on FB.

Could not understand a word he was saying.

I would think they would have the same risk potential as an oil refinery or gunpowder factory. :eek:

This is similar to the bench buster posted except for one thing. This one is sitting on the back of this dude's truck in front of a storage rental.
I can hear it now... Over my dead body... not in my house... what would the neighbors say... I wouldn't be able to show may face in town... get that junk out of here... no, not even on the porch, I'm not living in a damn junkyard.
