Default Bug to Butterfly

Look what followed me home today.

Not entirely sure where this will end up but I'm planning to use a T bucket style frame that I have and one of these engines that I have in order of probability .. a 355 sbc with dual quads and a th350 trans, a 200 Ford inline 6 with c4, a 302 Ford with c4, or a 460 Ford with c6.

The body will likely be cut down to make a pickup style cab or a roadster pick up. I could even be convinced to do something similar to the one that Ben Modified is building as I think that one is major cool. (http://www.ratrodsrule.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35459).

Be a while before anything gets done as its in cold storage until "Sheets and Giggles" is completely finished.

I'll be very happy to receive suggestions as to which way I should go with this.

Building another race car would be to expensive right now what with the cost of divorce lawyers and such. I do like the idea though!

I really like the look of this one that I found on the web. Have to try ignore the model though .. look hard and you will see there is a car in the picture.

The VW looks to be about a '65 or '66 model. The distraction is much much newer.

I keep thinking about a VW for the altered chassis, but there are so many out there. It would be so easy though. I'll think more after the 39 is done.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

A VW bodied altered would be pretty cool. I think there were a few running as funny cars way back.

These are kind of what I had in mind originally. Push the body back a little bit, shorten the bed a little bit and there it is. Maybe delete the hood and put a tractor grill on it. Glad I'm going to take some time to decide before I take out the sawsall. It's like a Chinese menu .. so many good ideas! Thanks for the input.
