356 speedster

I picked up this replica 356 a couple of weeks ago because Ive always wanted to clone one out of aluminum. and start a product line of aluminum deck lids and hard tops. I finally got it running last Thursday night and took it for a spin in the rain, got it sideways blew the motor, and crashed it into the center divide. looks like Ill be working on more than anticipated

16" Wassel clone

I wanted to use a wassel fender on my panhead but I'm running a 16" wheel and Wassels are for 18" and it just didn't fit. I have a bunch of 36 Ford tire covers but their to wide, even though they for my tire. so I cut 3/8 out of the peak I Now the fender is very close in shape to the Wassel just need to flip the rear of the fender a bit and it will be a perfect fit.

54 panhead

Also in the works is my 54 panhead

Volvo p1800es

when My wife needed a new car and she told me she wanted an old car rather than a new Honda. She bought a 1973 Volvo p1800es wagon that she found on craigslist So I put my race car on hold for a month or so while I turned this nice original car into a reliable Hot Rod commuter. power is now going to come from A 2.0 V-tech out of a Honda S2000 and backed by a 6 speed and a freshly rebuilt rear end with a tru-trac posi. larger nissan throttle body, custom header and intake and a stand alone computor.


I did some trick metal work for Chris Roark's Low Rider including the steel removable deck lid skin.

Deck Lid Skin

my deck lid skin had some rot and I thought it would be more fun to make one out of Aluminum than to buy one. now I just need to paint whats left of the inner skin and I can attach the outer to it.
