Don't know if anyone has seen this, but I enjoyed it so I thought I would share. http://www.metalmeet.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4020

That looks outrageously fun. I guess it's time I buy a welder and some metal stock. This is going to be a long road.

It has to be the most amazing machine I have ever seen. I saw a guy last year here where I live build something that looks identical to that. I wonder if that is the same guy?

My next door neighbor is almost done building a one-off old school roadster/Adam's family car/milk truck/who knows what it is car. He literally built the car from the ground up with metal and wood. He also built his own house with the help of one helper (for time reasons, he can do it all himself).

He's not quite done, but the it;s totally drive-able and everything- just needs some detail work and paint. I'll try and snag some pics...
