    Part of it is from a 58-60 Corvette.

    While I'm not one who goes in for the slammed look or the lifted to oblivion either I do appreciate the innovation and ingenuity of those who put forth the effort to build these ultra custom vehicles On this one I especially like how he integrated the corvette lines into the sides I think it really sets the build apart from many other builds when you blend in body lines from an entirely different body style. the 6 wheels are a bonus. I guess the only additional thing to make it pop would have been to loose the deck lid and add in the El Camino bed which he almost has anyway
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Good one Frank! That would at least make driving an 8m 'car' more useful...instead of Cadillette, it could be Cadimino...and yes, the skills in that level of custom fab border on artwork. Cheers

    Then he could put a hot tub in the bed of it! That would make it a Cadivetteiminotub.

    Ha! Good one...and a (nearly) viable business ...'Happy Days Wedding Hot Tub Experience'...
    Say, $1500 + setup costs etc...hmmm, a stretch Ford Fairlane Limo (Australian, maybe 2010), is for sale in my neck of the woods...I could do that...or maybe not...cheers

    Plus to make the vehicle truly versatile they could bring it to me and I could add this to it.
    A group of friends of mine cobbled this together and now have a few patents on it with more applied for and some pending. They came to me and another friend of mine to see about bring it into the market place. The as built unit is nowhere near production manufacturable. SO I have redesigned several key components added some needed features plus some options which will make it IMO more marketable to a larger market, which has also caused the need to begin the process to more patent applications

    When I finally complete the mods one of the options may include a dumping feature as well
