Once upon a time, many milions years ago, a man named Fred Flintstone was the first man from planet The Earth rambled on its surface by his newly self-invented Four Foot Drive ( 4FD ) vehicle, baptized as CURIOUSITY 2MBC.
Today, I’ve just finished building a replica of that prehistory 4FD vehicle. Yabba dabba dooooo.
photo # 5 is for the man of that moment.

Nice Job Sam but have to say all your work is great. Wish I had the time to put toward my woodworking so maybe in time I could do what I would consider great work as yours and a lot of other guys here on LJ.
The more I look at the quality of work that takes place here I realize this site has to product some of the finest and greatest pieces of work anywhere.
No market can came come close to the work that takes place here.
My hats off to all of you pro’s and soon to be pro’s

What a great project – this really brings back memories for this Flintstones fan. Looks like it came right off the assemply line in Bedrock.
