Hey Pick. I haven't heard of Cuban Chrome - I don't currently have Discovery doh! Another show I can't get enough of is American Pickers and those guys like Rat Rods too.
Mr Junk: Yes that motor was sweet ! Don't forget Season 2- Ep 2 is on tonight :-)
Thanks Mr Pick and Mr blue, I love Sin City Motors as well, great show, fav build was quityabitchin they made for Steves brother
lol blue , funny you should say that . i watch those shows and see the creative process , the hunt for parts / ideas , and the reveal , and reactions , and i relate to it because it is so similar to what i / we do here .
cuban chrome is another show that incites resourcefulness . amazing stuff on there ,- boat motors and house locks on cars . made tools etc etc ...
Jim and Pick : Loving both of them thar examples !
I betcha Brian Setzer would dig the Jim's Glitch and Steve Darnell from Welderup would go for Pick's drive-in Rat :-D
cheers blind l ;-)
jim j, i always liked that one of yours ;-)
Howdy guys, only built one Rat so far but have another in the pipeline. Love old school looking guitars and there's some great pics in this group. Heres a guick video of the Rat
