    For our buddies, @3legs and @Sidecarjohn. The cocktail called a Sidecar.

    I think the vintage Vincent is ideal for a coffee grinder. Everything finished with a nod to the design and colors of the Edwardian era ending about the start of WW II. The sun never sets on the British (empire) flag. That's a suggestion for the table top design. The gas powered drink mixer has been done almost to death with exception that a 100cc two-stroke twin on short, fat expansion chambers with tiny, long stingers will never get old!

    I'll just take my hooch straight up, and make it bourbon.

    A Sidecar, and a pretty one at that!

    Sure wish you were close enough to give you my '51 Allis. I am pretty sure my antique gas and steam threshing days are over.

    I really want an Allis model B, my farmer pal won't let me keep one on his farm as he says they are sh#t and won't talk to me if I get one. :dunno

    The B models have such a sculpted design that there is a current trend to slam them and use polished alum wheels with turf tires for cattin' around at the shows. They can come out looking stylish. Make mine with Moon discs and salt flat tires. Maybe your farmer friend has some hot-rodder blood.

    I really really love that!!!! The UK ain't seen nothing like that and we've got loads of B's knocking about. Perfect, I have a new passion!

    Edit, my farmer pal would hate it even more, if it can't work for a living then it's nowhere! :-)

    It could work for a living with some creativity. Like, maybe a matching wagon with an ice bin in the middle full of adult beverages and take car show participants on evening hayrides, fee for ride and beverages of course. I don't for the life of me understand how anybody can afford to keep a draft horse, but around here people have dozens of them and they pay for themselves hauling people at festivals. Guess there is a market if you chase it around the country.

    Yeah, I would want lakes style terminating with megaphones. And, a V-8 with injectors would be good too. Lose the wooden stylized seat of course. I'm not into that shit. Give me classic seating styles done in black tuck'n'roll. Gotta' be selective during the build so it ends up looking slammed classic hot rod and not a pulling tractor.

    How 'bout a Valkyrie powered 8N?

    Or a Chrysler 318 V8?

    I've always been in love with art, sculpture, glass, jewelry making, and see the art in all things mechanical. Roll that up with the deep blues and that sends me. I've never been able to shake the eye-poke blue. My favorite. Other colors can be bright, but for me only blue can realize the true distinction of "eye-poke" intensity. My street rod was eye-poke blue when first built forty years ago, but now has lost some luster. From wear and malfunction it also lost a '32 low grille shell, tunnel ram with two-fours and velocity stacks. Time for a re-do, change the rear radius rods, lower and few other things in the plans. Still bright though and with the chrome and open bucket, headlights reflecting from the spokes it has every gal on the road wanting a ride. Reminds me of the old philosophy "eighteen to eighty, blind, crippled or crazy, if they can't walk we'll carry 'em"!
