My take on a gasser style Power Wagon. Because who wouldn't love doing a 10 second quarter mile up a vertical rock face?

The piece is meant to resemble one of those "Here we are in x-ville" snapshots everyone takes on a road trip. It was obvious, really; the gasser style Power Wagon is clearly the ideal road trip vehicle. It's fuel efficient , comfy, and best of all, the road is optional.

So, who's behind the camera?

"Now they're targeting rat rods. One of 'em got Billy's A-Bucket yesterday outside Stig's Pig Shack. Last I heard, Billy's car was spotted seven states away, outrunning a squadron of cop cars and a couple helicopters. Billy sure knows how to build a motor."

Now in Glorious Color!

The idea is that this is a barn find, discovered after about two decades under a leaky roof. After being extricated from beneath a pile of gunny sacks, the truck is simply cleaned, polished, and given a mechanical once over. No new paint or other cosmetic work. Not sure if you could match that color, anyway. It was a custom mix, and no one can find the original recipe.

Besides, isn't this the style, now? A hard earned rustic patina that no amount of money can fake?

Of course, the question remains; is it possible to do this to a four wheel drive Power Wagon and keep it four wheel drive?

If it is, it would be at or very near the apex of awesomeness.

It seemed to be the best title at the time, though I don't know any kids who get on the bus at the top of a high stone plinth in the middle of a rainforest ("When I was your age..."). And I doubt that's a regulation school bus drivers uniform.

This is one of those pieces that evolve without me ever really knowing the story. What's the intrepid explorer guy doing in the deep with a T-bodied Ford? Are those mers good or evil? Does that toolbox contain sandwiches? This is one of those rare times I don't have it all figured out.
