I just HAD to Share this with You Guys!

Unbelievable! I have "built" a few cars in the past, but when I use the term, I refer to a frame on sawhorses and start adding parts to assemble and modify as I go, but this guy BUILT this car:

Yeah; isn't that something?
I don't know how he kept motivation to keep working on that car.
Fabricating everything;.... he could have built anything.

The amount of work and trying to find certain parts to incorporate is almost mind blowing . It is enough work just doing a straight body off restoration of a normal car mind something like this.

Well I've been to San Francisco and all around the Bay Area quite a number of times over the years and that certainly hasn't happened yet.

I've been to SF.

Thanks for sharing Larry. I had seen mention of the car on a different site and had wondered about it's build.
