About this creation
What started as a rebuild of Maniac but soon took a turn to hell. I started out with the front suspension layout, then built the massive engine and header treatment. After that, the rest of the frame was built to scale. At first I was going for a smaller front tire setup but it just looks so intense with the 4 big balloon tires and moon-style wheels/hubcaps. The engine features a chain-driven supercharger with snorkel intakes and open headers. The doors are removable with suicide-position handles (couldn't get hinges to work with the space constraint - maybe next time!). Two Technic seats, a full dashboard. and steering wheel round out the interior. The straight glass puts the car in the Model T era, with a mild chop. Cone taillights are a homage to the 59 Caddy taillights that hot rodders love. Disks from an old Technic set give the car front disk brakes, as well as suspension-mounted headlights. Bone handles and the skull up front gave the inspiration for the name. 10-wide body, 4-wide engine/frontend.

Quoting Ape Fight Good stuff - the wheels really suit it. The engine is great too. The cabin bit of the body needs some work as it's a bit square, but overall a good 4/5
yea the body is super-square. i was aiming for a more Model T than Model A look since they are more boxy, but I think it needs macaroni-rounded rear and some inverse slope on the bottom to give it that curved tub look. I think my next build will be along the lines of a T-bucket...

I have to agree, the wheels and tires make it, the blower belt is "old-school" too.

Wolffe, the suicide-position handles represent that if i had added door hinges, the car would have suicide doors, which means they open opposite from a normal car door.
