You got nothing to worry about. Look in the back of any Euro tuner magazine and you can order those plates with anything you want on them.

Plus. Even if you aren't of Scottish decent, all YOU have to do is add 2 t's to the "SCO" and you're good to go.

Nope. But I will send you a semi-crisp five dollar bill plus shipping if you don't want it. No, no don't thank me.....

I notice the trailer hitch. Is that for pulling a little trailer to carry a Miata?

I found it in a shop in Raton New Mexico. I bought it for a quarter. Cracked me up it was called a Gay Camper. It must be old as hell. They would pull that shit off the shelf now days. Because some Homo would get offended.

Couldn't find a Morris Minor ute (pickup) back panel, so I bought this F-3 cab and doors from the craigslist (same roof/back as Lostrebel is using, btw):


As a result, Moe may end up being more Ford than Morris (I'll still use all four Morris fenders and hood, at a minimum, and graft the Minor's front fender tails onto the Ford doors if I use the whole Ford cab).

From the weight of it, this old buzzard seems to be made of 14 gauge steel (the doors even have full steel inner panels)!

Hey 484.....a good friend of mine back in the day had a Morris minor pickup that was just a cool as shit little car. One day he swiped a bunch of electrical conduit and we used a pine tree for a bender and made 4 frame peices and bolted them in the stake pockets, then he bought a old school military OD green cover cloth and we used wire to attatch it to the frame for a super cool homemade topper. We even had former military people give us the thumbs up and salute when they saw it coming down the road.

A `71 or so Harley Sprint 350. Built by Arramacchi (spelled really wrong). I had one built from a pair I picked up for a hundred bucks back in the mid-eighties. Fun little bike. There are a couple of site about them I think.

For now, it's raining again. But I did go out during a lull between storms and dig up a little. and YES, here are the pics of it BEFORE I started digging...












I was able to get the cowl dug up, and two fenders. With any luck, tomorrow will be better and I'll get the rest of it uncovered. Odd thing is, I found two left front fenders.... Guy said "You may have two or three cars by the time you finish digging." Then he chuckled and walked back to the barn to get out of the rain.... Where he told me about the two complete flatheads still sitting in their respective vehicles......

I'll look at them next time.

I guess this is a score. Very solid chassis excellent welds and only surface rust in a few spots. Plan is to clean and paint, add front beam, new brakes , wheels/tires -once it rolls and stops it goes up for sale. Investment at the moment $165.07 counting the fuel it took to go get it and lunch.
