Default Bonehead is back to work

So I picked up some wheels at a yard sale the other day. 15x10, and 14x7, Shelby slotted

mags.


So I figgured I should start a build thread.

So now I have started....

So I am off to find some tin. Lucky for me I have quite a salvage yard behind the house.

This is what the truck looked like when I picked it up at auction.

I like those wheels. I would have a hard time choosing which car if I had very many choices like you do. Keep us posted.

There is more to the story than that. There are out there in this world people who want a bad rat rod, but don't have the time or skills to build one. In short I am building this one for someone else. I offered up cab choices from all my cabs, 30-31 Ford, 34 Chevy, 37-38 chevy, 37 Ford, 42 Ford, and even my IH. After careful consideration, he picked the one he liked the most, which turned out to be the one closest to the Bonehead truck. So that is where we will start.

Bonehead: The Foose of Fruita!!!

There must be some kind of hot rod karma, like E-man mentions. As I was looking at your recent metal art postings I was thinking it would be a treat if you would build another hot rod. And now, it's happening.

I hope the owner lets you have free reign.
