According to Roscoe, its engineered like no other car in the world. There was just a hint of snobbery in his drawl as he prattled on about his ability to slay all comers at the local mud bog competition with a jar of Grey Poupon on the dash.


This car has been parked in Spencer, TN for years.

Interesting!
exactly what I was thinking.

I love that aftermarket wheels have gotten big enough that cars can actually look like matchbox cars now.


That car, while ridiculous, is kinda cool in it's own way, IMO

That stuff is all over a few neighborhoods in Oakland. If you see one, DO NOT be on the outside of it in a corner. They have a turning radius worse than a Ducati.

In general, they can't accelerate worth a damn, and have completely mangled suspension. Following one through a set of bumps at speed is rather funny.

Used to be that the purpose of larger wheels was to fit larger brakes. I never see larger brakes on the cars with aftermarket 20"+ wheels on them. With the rotating mass increased and concentrated at the circumference, the brake load goes way up, with no extra brake power to help stop.

Brakes!?! We don't need no steenkeeng brakes!

That said, I once owned a 50 1/2 Willys 2wd PU with a chevy SS power train. Unfortunately it still had a single reservoir drum brake set and original steering gear. GLH but steers like an aircraft carrier.

That's actually some pretty funny shit right there.
I love the supercharger sans belt. Is the trailer license plate a heat shield, or part of the exhaust?
