Hi All

Ken here from the Peterborough Ontario area.

I live eat and breathe for hotrods, race trucks and just about anythign else go fast or totally offside.

 

My kids will tell you my crank spins backwards most of the time.

I am currently buildign a 65 Mercury pickup int oa gasser which was published this month in Canadian Hot Rod magazine.

Unfortunately I never took pics of most of my projects over  the years so much is lost as I only have old polaroids.

Anyway - if my pics load - enjoy.

heres a link to my photobucket as well

The motor big enough? hmm, nope, but was here and well you know... lol

Yes the front end will tilt, but not in any manner ever seen before. Cant wait to show it off when completed.

Thanks for the compliments guys. This truck will be the culmination of every cool idea I ever had about a hotrod truck, and my affinity for the 60s era hotrods and gassers.

and my 50 mph, wheelie at will garden tractor, that I built for my cousin to race locally

First time out he rolled it whe nhe landed a wheelie badly. We patched it together , and next run same day he is doin a wheelie and the steerign wheel came off - and we caught in a pic - too cool

Has a 6.5 Honda cart engine runnin on alky, makin 18 hp at 8000 rpm, through a salsbury clutch to the 4 spd transaxle.

 

You can see i really have a thing for choppin and channeling hotrods - this was chopped 4"through the cowl and channeled 2 inches over the frame and then the front axle was dropped 6" for that pure hotrod look This work also required converting it to a more rear steer on the steering wheel rather than that up and down lawn tractor thing







I just sold this to a kid a few months ago, and he is going to race it this year

here is another project I did years ago for truckpulling.

1979 F150 4x4

7" chop front , 6" chop rear, box welded into the cab, and my signature reverse tilt front end





the worlds only six barrel carb I designed and built cuz the rules said only one carb and i needed bigger, which also necessitated building the only front drive distributor for a 460 Ford

and this is my 91 F350 pulling truck with a 96 nose on it, and a 800hp cummins in it.

The truck as it sits in this pic is no longer, as I am in the middle of converting it into a dually, with a new three color paint job and a 900 hp motor and a 5spd standard tranny as we finally found the limits of the C6 auto trans, at 1400 ft lbs - tore the centres right out of three converters in a row trying to get through the season and before i finally gave up
