Last Call: Corvettallac Edition

After Panther’s 6-wheel car with Cadillac power, I’m beginning to think this might be a trend.

    There is not enough fire with which to properly kill that. I will never understand why someone with enough time and money to build something like that, would build something like that…

      Looks like a 1:1 HotWheel.
      I kinda dig it.

      It’s Fun. You spend a lot of time and money on it and it brings no profit. You get to show it off to the few people you know who will appreciate it.
      What do you do with your cars?

        What makes you think Stigshift even has a car, other than maybe his Priapus he plays with.

      While I agree with you regarding the indiscernible motive, I gotta say that stuff like this is what makes car shows interesting.
      I went to a classic show this weekend with my son, my first in maybe 10 years. Not really my crowd, but Kyle’d seen it on the news and wanted to check it out. I’d forgotten how boring it is to see thirty 1969 Camaros in the same place. The winners in my book were the weirdos (i.e. the Studebaker Golden Hawk) and the well-executed one-offs.

      Because we don’t think like you do in your cotton wool wrapped world stigshift, which is why weird and wonderful creations like this live to see the light of day

    Aftermath of the 3M Paint Defender trial:
    Used 2 cans worth ($50) on the hood, front end and mirrors of the ST. The application was hit and miss but it looked like it would keep the rocks off the paint. But it looked rough. Not just that it looked like a matte finish but it stained with the sap and bugs. I gave it until after the last ice storm before I decided to remove it.
    I broke down and had to remove the product. My car looked ass. All that stuff had collected on the finish and it made me feel like I was letting the car down. I can do better!!!
    I tried to peel it off Fonzie-style but that crap was too thin. I could manage about a quarter here and there. I gave up and tried iso alcohol. That just made a gummy mess. I broke out the pressure washer and went to town stripping the stuff off. Took ALL DAY from first peel to “I’m sorry I did this to you.”

      I would never do that, but THAT is very well done. Looks nearly factory.

      1. David Blackmore Avatar

        That’s cos it IS factory, it’s a funeral flower car, OK.

    Deadly reputation, eye-searingly bright paint, limited visibility, beat shit condition… but for some reason I still want this 1977 Ford Pin…$_27.JPG

    I think I’m in love…

      If it comes with the Mandarin Orange interior, I’m totally going to faint.

      This is why I don’t read the Craigslist Crapshoot.

    I approve of this hot rod. Completely over the top. Also, orange and white, that usually sells me.

    I like it and really except for the velocity stacks (more awesome) it looks like something GM would have been showing at a 50 car show. Remember they also had bubble tops and turbine motors in some wild show cars from the MFG’s. Sadly we are all still waiting for our bubble-topped, turbine motored flying cars.

    I’m calling shenanigans but I really hope this is real.
    But I’ve been fooled before.

    Thanks for the comments guys, both good and bad, ~ I’m the guilty party, and NO ~ I wasn’t on drugs, and it’s called the “El Cadillette” ~ proudly Kiwi kustomised way down here in New Zealand, ~ it’s part EL Camino, part CADILLac, part CorvETTE. The post from “7FIATS later” and “Batshitbox” hit the nail right on the head, cos it’s intended to look like a ’50’s factory show car could have done, ~ intentionally “over the top” because that’s what the late fifties were all about. No it’s not subtle, nor was it intended to be. My stock ’56 Continental coupe is subtle ( see, I have a modicum of taste 🙂 ) but this is NOT ! The interior is complete ’59 Corvette, finished in carbon fiber ~ and there’s more that must remain secret for now or I’d have to kill you. Power is a 450 horse 500 cid Cadillac, the doors open horizontally on hydraulic rams, and where the roof has been shortened 30″ there’s a panel that slides forward and down to reveal an exterior rumble seat. The second set of rear wheels was added cos the ’59 Caddy already has huge overhang, and the continental kit just made way too much compared to the minimal at the front end, and besides, my dream car is Lady Penelope’s FAB1 Rolls Royce 6 wheeler …
    As for “stigshift” ~ like Batshitbox says, “what do you do with your cars” ?
