Monday’s Model-40

 

Congratulation to Bobby for winning the “Battle of the Builders” award at SEMA. He has had a great year with the AMBR trophy winner. He has built several Model-40’s over the years and I like all of them. He has the touch to making them sit low and with huge rear tires and wheels in the back and dropped axles in the front. Stance is everything on a Model-40 and if you just copy his model you will be sitting right. Boyd also built some nice Model-40’s during his career and the two of them were good friends. Boyd built more of a high-tech Hot Rod with his own independent suspensions and long wheelbases. Each had their own look and did well on the show circuit as well as on the street. I seemed to like the cars and Wescott made a nice fiberglass model that Boyd often used. I had him purchase me one and proceeded to build my style Model-40. While FG cars have a bad name today, I still think the Wescott Model-40 is a very nice body to build a Hot Rod. To each their own.

Have a productive week in your garage.

Stay Tooned!

Lots of work and expense versus the reproduction from SAR and Speed 33. Very doable but time consuming.

Here is a close up of the finished product. If you don’t have patterns they are available.

A phaeton makes a wonderful family cruiser for a nice sunny day at the beach. Hard to find in this shape but there are two in our area just sitting and waiting for someone to do something with them.

If you have a large budget Roy can build you a perfect one like he did for Bruce.

Not for the die hard Ford guy but the Speed 33 offers a lot of driving comforts for the people who love to drive their cars.

You “Old School” guys will like this tub with a Carson style top and whitewall tires.

You can also make the SAR roadster into a beautiful Hot Rod. I am not sure if they still offer these but I always thought I would like one. I am a sucker for the stock irons and bows on these cars.

  63. The polite lady in the office didn’t speak much English when I visited, but the process to rent a scooter from is quick & efficient. You can message on Facebook to see what stock they have available or just turn up. Side Note: I’m not sure the logo for Bikes gives off the best impression XD. Farang guy zooming on a Vespa without a helmet… With an almost perfect feedback score on Google & Facebook, you’re in good hands with them. They also have a garage next door to the rental shop where they’ll perform regular maintenance. I’ve rented a Mio from here which had squeaky breaks due to water in the drum brake. They quickly swapped this bike to another hassle-free. Although the variety of bikes they stock is a lot smaller, they offer very competitive pricing and are conveniently located at the Huay Kaew end of Santitham. If you’ve seen the Yamaha Tricity, and thought heck, I’d love to give that bike a try. Then send a message to Cheap Charlie and they are renting the Tricity for only 3850 per month. The unique two wheels at the front (3 wheels overall) of this scooter offer much more stability than a tradition two-wheeled scooter. Charlie Rentals also offers fantastic monthly prices with Clicks & Scoopys as low as 1900 baht per month.
