I like it! they may have gone a little overboard with the chrome, but i wouldn't say "ruined"
Looks a lot like a Jag - between wars?
^^^^^^^^^^^Worth more than the original poster, no doubt.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It's a Delahaye.
Um, that is indeed a Delahaye. (SP), and those to a lot of people are considered the most beautiful cars ever designed or built. I use to have a good buddy who did nothing but paint them at a Delehaye specific restoration house in Monterey Cali. They use to have to hand make many parts since they were hand built cars. There are many beautiful examples still in existence.
30", if you weren't aware.
I want to say something very wrong here.
Yup, that WAS a ZL1 convvertible
You mean about the car matching the owner's front teeth, or the Mr. T starter kit around his neck?
I'll never forget the guy I saw driving a nice Merc in LA BUT it had 24s on it before anyone knew what they were. The biggest wheels I had seen till that day were 19s. That thing looked SO STUPID I couldn't beleive it! PLUS it was am AMG Merc SL55 or something like that.
Some, just outta his teens kid around here has been driving around in a shitty little yellow cavalier. Attached to the cav is....something. I'm not quite sure how to describe it.
Sort of a grill over the original grill, thats held in place by a 90% closable hood. That you can still see through whatever the hell this kid has done of course.
And is also ..."braced" by two pvc pipes that run sort of up and over the roof of the car where they've rubbed and scratched down to bare metal. Around back are two separate pvc pipes going to the trunk lid. They aren't actually attached to anything, just sort of flopping around.
The driver is a 5'5 asian kid, with a wispy spotty beard who enjoys pacing back and forth in front of this abomination and aggresively smoking while giving passerby the stink eye. And wearing a leather coat. In the summer.
No pictures as i'm usually trying not to black out from laughing my guts out.
Sure this was a nice truck at one time, now ruined? Or awesome leave it up to you
Mad Max close out?
New ARB design. The Cattle Plow. Sure to be a hit with the Jeep Wrangler folk.
I kinda like this one....
I caught this on bikeride home from school the other day. Sad thing is Id drive it.
That is a Centurion. They built them 2 different ways.
Either they took a Bronco and stretched it into a 4-door by rading the Ford Parts bin. This got them the 4-door half ton version. Looks like 5 lug nuts on the wheel so that is what this one is.
The other version was to take an F350 4-door and remove the bed and put the back of a Bronco on there. This gets you a heavy duty version, identified by the 8-lug wheels.
You could also run the VIN and tell what it was originally built as. That can also affect how it is registered and insured. Rust in the area where the conversion has been done is probably the biggest problem. They used vast quantitys of body filler that will come off in big chunks when it rusts from underneith.
I don't remember the exact built numbers, but in the hundreds over the years if I remember right. They were not a cheap conversion when new either. Many (like this one) are past there prime and are just odditys in the used car market. Special enough that they don't get scrapped like they would have been if they were just a normal used up truck, so they just stick around hanging on by a thread just because they are a little special.
