    at the hot rod shop
    34 Lincoln, it was a running driving v-12 car, the guy sold the motor and tranny to a restorer, and is building a rod out of it. It looks the same as a 32 ford, but it is bigger in every dimension, i wish we could have parked the 'glass 32 we have at the shop next to it for comparison. Wicked cool car!!

    This is a '03 excursion we are putting a F-550 fiberglass front clip on. I had to cut and reshape the front core support and the "frame rails" going to the core support to fit the flip front. More pics to come later, i know its just a show truck, but it's growing on me. All the doors open different, the driver door is stock, driver rear is suicide, pass. front is Lamborghini, and the pass. rear opens clamshell, with steps on the lower door. We still have a lot of work to do to this.

    Is that a baja VW behind the Lincoln? And I think I've seen that excursion before, has it ever been in a magazine?

    That sure does look more like a 650-750 clip as opposed to a 550 clip.......

    pretty sure they are the same, we looked at a 550 at the dealer ship down town, and AFAIK it was the same

    Ya i am pretty sure it was in a Mag before.

    No it isn't a Baja, it is a resto of a convertible, not sure which year

    AFAIK, F-450's and F-550's are still the "super duty" style clips. Cool stuff!
