I wanted to build a Road Trippin car for me and my son to bomb across the states, it needed to be some American Muscle forced together with a Diesel -Lots of pics to come, but here are some of the beginning and some yesterday. From Toronto to Miami 6000k later on $300 in Fuel

The RusT transformation

Robert brought the RusT back to the creator -15ish years ago I put it together, but now its getting a much needed face lift and a new lease on life. The RusT 2.0 is coming along -I can’t tell you everything because i have no idea how it will end up, we’re just building and adding cool stuff as we go. 🙂 Here are some teaser shots

Ron’s Oakland

So if you’ve been following along at home -that last time we saw Ron’s can in the shop we were getting it back together so he could bomb around in it during the summer -it was during that time he decided leaving the original wood structure in the car wasn’t something he wanted anymore LOL

On the road again… for the summer anyway

So we removed all the wood bit by bit, replacing the entire car with steel. No more flex, constant door gaps, and a LOT less twisting. This was a Sport coupe once upon a time -then someone cut the door tops and tossed the roof I guess. Ron decided to put a traditional full roof back on it

I’d really like to posts photos right side up so i don’t look so amateurish -my skills are in metal, not posting photos

I post a lot to Instagram, so to see what we’re working on weekly check it out. I’ll also ad a new tab up top so you can follow along here

So…. what the best way to make 70’s boats economical?

Stick a DIESEL in it!

Oh and the engine mentioned in the article is wrong -its a 3.9L Isuzu 4 cylinder 4BD1T Turbo Diesel
