The Funny Car Tub was converted from Garage Art to cash!
A little internet horse tradin paid of for everybody. Mike and Doug came down from the Windy City to pick it up.
Its going to be turned into a Motorcyle eng powered Lil Funny Car.
I'll put up some pics after Mike sends them my way.
Now to sell some more stuff to fatten up the account for getting the Speedwagen shop back in oeder.

Here is the latest addition to the SPEEDWAGEN collection of homeless race car parts.
I picked this up for the "monkey cage" for the the Bonneville car, but I Have determined the tubing is to thin for the SCTA rules for 4130 tubing.
So, Garage Art it is!---anybody want a funny car starter kit.

The efforts for putting a saddle on a Bonneville effort have been put on hold, till the money tree comes into blossom.
So in the mean time, its back to Hot Rods and local events.
There are so many partially finished projects decorating the grounds, that I don't know what to fiddle with next.
So for your consideration, here is the menu!
This is a T Roadster that was built in the 60's, with a Watson style Indy Roadster front nose. This might be a good use for the 27 T body that is perched on the trailer out back. I can't decide what kind of drive train to put in it.
Here is a quick photoshop rendering of the idea
This is a similar car from Cincinnati
Then there are a couple of old chevy trucks that are keeping each other company.
The Red Truck is a stock 53 1/2 ton, and the Brown Truck is a 48 Panel
The Panel has been in our stable of sleds for over 30 years.
And Bugzilla has had it's eyes on the Bonneville Subaru Motor...
And right in the middle of my procrastination, I have been thinking about Electric Cars..I need help, somebody come check me in.
OOPS, I almost forgot about the VW Funny car body thats eatin up space.
Now that could be interesting!
Now what do I offer for desert ?

My Grandaughter Elise thought we should take Bugzilla to the Annual Fathers Day car show in the local park. She is a big fan of Bugzilla, just like her Mommy Jaime.
We busted Bugzilla, the SPEEDWAEN Flagship out of Moth Balls for the event.
It's been a couple of years since the ole sled has seen daylight, but it fired right up!
