This is Gils Sporty, It is a 2005 rubbermount previously owned by me,I just paid a visit to his home in Moreno Valley ,Ca and fabbed and mounted a frisco style 2.2 peanut tank,The tank was narrowed 1 inch, new floor built for it ,An extra wide tunnel for the large diameter back bone that the new sportys are known for, and crowned the cap. The tank holds two gallons.I also fabbed Gil a coil bracket to relocate it to the primary side of the engine cleaning up the space under the fuel tank. The ignition was relocated to the primary side low mounted as well!Hope you like the photos,Watch for more as the build progresses! SLIM

These are some shots of the wheelie stander I built, never intended to sell it, it is like a child to me,When I create a vehicle from scratch it is alot like my idea of giving birth but the male version!!! ha ha ha! I drove this thing everywhere i went, it being my only means of four wheeled transpo at the time forced me to make it completely well mannered,with small block power! A really great guy named Casey moir saw it and wanted it even before i did the radical drivetrain swap, ( he decided that after the 13 inch chop) now he has posession of the streetsweeper,He is an ex dragracer who has a love for my abstract automotive art,I really miss my van! two days after it left to Caseys, Idrove to Oregon with my friend Al to pick up my new project, I will share pics of its progress my next blog. it is a 1947 Crosley wagon,dont even ask just watch my blog! Thanks to all that check out my blog and have patience to wait, I am a sparatic blogger, If I am on the net I am not Creating and that just blows!!! STAY TRUE RED,WHITE,AND BLUE,SLIM
