    No one likes a Daytona buck? That Ohlsen built Cobra that I've posted here a couple of times popped up for sale again ....recap, he was the fabricator involved with Shelby on most of his cars.

    I learnt something the other day..
    When John Ohlsen took the original buck to Italy to have the bulk of the Daytona bodies fabricated there, the Italian coach builders raised the roofline a couple of inches.
    The buck above is the for the one he built here in NZ with Shelby permission and support. He died before it was completed but it was finished by his son and resides in the US now.

    Oh, the buck pic is great. So great that it sent me to searching my files for a few older Ferrari bucks from an art show about 10 years ago. Found them and they were nowhere nearly as evocative, so...

    Still be nice to see them, Ross.
    I just drove 350 km on some long and winding roads, in my transit unfortunately, even though it does appear to handle like a big mini. A different route, longer but a gorge dropping down into a river valley, not much traffic, beautiful landscape in big parts of it. Fun.....Need my MG next time.

    But I just drove past that workshop pictured with the buck, I'll snap a photo next time I'm down there. I'm in the smoke for a week.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Wazzat? appears from a bit of Googling to be a 1952 Woodill Wildire, with Ford flathead V8.
    Whatever that was.
    Don't see your connection though, John.
