So i get bored time to time , grab a pencil and draw a little ....
Tonight i thought "what would my Hotrod be"
I dubbed it "Offenrod"
Becuse its powerplant is a 168 cubic inch (2.75 liter) 4cyl Offenhouser Turbo from 1967 , with around 40 psi of boost it made 750 hp ....
tired to draw it so the engine would sorta "hang out"...pictures look kinda crappy becuse i took a pic of the drawing with a camera ....

Nice drawing! :thumbsup: Sounds like a kickass car.

yup , but its cost at lest 70 grand for the engine and tranny ...becuse the stuff isnt around anymore ....one would have to find a old offy engine and rebuild it , then find a way to run electronic fuel injection ....
its be a nightmare but itd blow chip fooses new hemisphere off the road (a very badass hotrod)

^^ Pfft. Lots of people on this board know interiors.
Young, maybe. But I just don't even plan to do lots of stuff. Plan now is:
School->More School->Work->Marry->More Work->Kids->More Work->Die.
Hey, I wish I did see half the stuff you did. It would make me more street smart, instead of book smart. Anyways, such is life, a game in which you can't win, just break even.
