Looks sorta like a Farmall tractor was rear-ended by a Chris Craft speed boat.One of the best or most interesting and certainly the most wackadoodle cars at the show: A custom designed car whose base look is that of a Morgan 3-Wheeler, but which was entirely designed and made from scratch with all sorts of kooky mods. Harley engine, Indian motorcycle fenders, etc. The guy studied how to bend wood and made this boat tail creation as his first project:

The plan for next year is awards at 2:00, cruise at 3:00. Carlisle events also has a cruise map available.It's looking really unlikely that we'll have a group ride today and who knows what the weather will do on Saturday afternoon, which would be the most likely time we would go for a drive.
Love that front air dam! But I must admit I am biased as I created that air dam for OGTS back around 1998. At that time Gil only had the two California styles which had the openings for the single and dual rectangular fog lights. I likes the air dam style but not the fog lights. I convinced Gil that he needed a version which allowed the stock ROUND Opel lights to be retained. Gil agreed and gave me a complete fiberglass air dam and belly pan of which I mounted up on a large piece of plywood and wood framing, cut out the middle and reshaped it to fit around a stock belly pan. I did all the initial fiberglass work and then we took it down to his fiberglass shop to make a mold. I got the first production part which I put on my V6 GT (picture below). It's a real honor to see this product show up on many cars.Yup. That`s my car on the calendar.
