looks good , those square bodies are hot right nowI've been lurking around here and checking up on you all so I figured I'd show off what I been doing since I'm not building bikes. I traded my 91 Oldsmobile custom cruiser wagon for this 87 silverado 4x4 back in September of last year and I have been refurbishing and replacing things since, new brakes all around, new select hubs, new exhaust, new muffler, new battery, refurbished junkyard rims and new tires, a used visor with new fog lights, new taillight lenses, new wire harness for the taillights, and I have new rust free doors, new window regulators/ motors, new crystal clear headlights, new weather strip, new door locks, new lock actuators, and a sweet stereo system waiting to go in soon as the weather decides to cooperate.

I know i work at a parts store and turned down an offer of 5 grand just this morning at work. To me I couldn't buy anything as reliable and tough as this for 5 grand so I'll keep it. I've put lots of new parts in too.looks good , those square bodies are hot right now
Those old bumpers were great! I used to be able to push people who took up two spaces in my old Subaru GL without leaving a mark, ram debris at speed in the alleys of Detroit, and I was a passenger in a friend's '85 Delta 88 when he slid on ice into an intersection island planter made out of railroad ties. The Oldsmobile bounced off and spun around 180*, shattering two of the railroad ties and not a mark on the car. I'd wish you good luck not getting whiplash, but that Hyundai probably didn't move your truck much.Guess this proves my point... Got rear ended last Friday night and i drove home. Bumper has a slight dent and a bit of twist and the brackets sheered off and broke at the bolts. The Hyundai is totaled from a less than 30mph collision.... I drove home. #classicnotplastic
I've always loved the Morgan trikes. Almost bought a '35 barrelback when I was 20, but it was expensive enough that it would have had to be my only car and that wouldn't have worked out no matter how much I tried to disregard reality. That one you built is gorgeous! Over the years, I've designed several tadpole trikes, but with a more practical daily slant (picture something like a WW2 fighter plane fuselage, sliding canopies and all, with the empennage removed and one was going to use an actual aircraft fuselage). RMV and varying state laws turned them into 4-wheelers (mainly, whether it would be a motorcycle or car—as a home constructor, I could easily get away with calling it a car and conform to car requirements, but most states list them as motorcycles, which would mean it couldn't have an enclosed passenger compartment and that I'd have to wear a helmet, but some states don't allow a helmet within an enclosed vehicle) which is substantially more money and chassis engineering.Finished my most recent full car build, this Moto Guzzi powered Aero Cycle Car replica Morgan 3 wheeler, in 2015 and sold it after enjoying it for a couple of months then deciding to realize a dream by importing a '41 Buick Special Sedanette into the UK from Canada.
