Pretty cool Grumpy! He should build some wooden shocks now, the ride looks kinda bumpy.

I thought that photo looked kind of familiar. I think it might have been built from these plans (plan 1 & 2). The bottom plan is one from a 1950’s Mechanix Illustrated magazine. I was a teenager then and I badly wanted to build this! If anyone wants to have a go at it, I have the magazine plans. Just e-mail me.

Bravo for that guy! Like his wife said, it’s better than hanging around the pub. She seemed to like the car as much as he does. Anyways, thanks for the post.
