    This old (1967?) Austin Healey 3000 MK III has been sitting in the lot where my Dad lives for quite a while. Looks to have been driven straight from the "barn".
    My 96+ year old Dad is still kick'in my ass at cribbage.

    The body under construction. This body has a larger tail than many of the American Classic bodies we have done and an opening trunk
    for more storage.

    Some details. Note that the under cowl glove box has become a very popular addition. Quite handy and lockable.
    Windshield is easily removed.

    My little leaning sidecar project-

    The "HacKayak" :D

    Does great on and off-road so far. Still have to finish the floor, add some more bracing and possibly add another pivot point. I may cut part of the nose off also, as I won't have people in it. Only my dog and gear. I'm going to add a fog light as well. I ran out of shield gas last night just after I added in the last absolutely necessary gusset. Good timing. :wink:

    That is really cool. :beer

    It looks like it does not come off for waterborne sorts of miscreant behavior? I was talking to a kayaking buddy of mine about doing something similar, but with a removable tub that is still river-worthy. :3

    Ahh, yes. Unfortunately mine does not do that. However, I thought about possibly building a platform with a curved frame that you could easily strap a kayak into. As for this design, I'll be coming up with a means of strapping my functional kayak and mountainbike to it. :)

    That looks like a very "proper" sidecar. And handsome.

    looking for a smaller house & bigger shed.
    Orange paint + black paint will get you 'that sort of look'.

    How does it go?
    'Wasp' is part of the equation. What is the engine? I first thought Honda, but it appears to have dohc.

    And a chain tensioner!!! What ever happened to them?
    More pointedly - wheredoyagetit?

    Very curious.

    Full time 2WD? Does it have some kind of CV joint or how does it handle the different wheel speeds in turns? Stomp a Ural's guts out how? speed on road? ability off-road? What's a comfortable on road cruise speed?

    Painted my MZ 301 winterhack "army"gray ( well, actually my wife did, she used to be a painter by trade )
    It's a matt grey, just like I wanted it to be:

    Kept the front of the "lastenseitenwagen" as it was, with the original logo of the DDR electricitycompany where they used it. It will get a clear coat to protect it.

    Had a template made by a militairy garage down the road for the sidepanels:
