Yeah, the old poncho had its share of oneness with nature, and was most likely paddock bashed till it was dead and jumped a few dams back in the day. I skull dragged it from the north west of the state so rust wise, it wasnt as bad as it looked, but I think if I didn't get it, the scrap man would have and it would most likely be a about 27 Cheap Chinese Mini bikes buy now!!!

I love it when people rescue old cars from the brink! Very Happy especially when most people would consider them too far gone.
Excellent!

Paul, The only reason I know is I have a '46 ornament mounted on a block of timber at home. This must be the first '46 poncho i've seen on the road!!! Great build and your pick-up looks the goods too.

Here's a couple of my latest ride. My 1950 Oldsmobile Rocket 88, which has always been one of my dream cars.
It has been set up Gasser style and did run 15's. I bought it less running gear.
Its called the "Rocketeer" Which is currently on the rear quarters in vinyl but soon to be peeled off and painted up the side. Its gonna stay a gasser but im gonna stick rego on it so we can cruize the streets Im loading more pic's too so Stay tuned!

Hey yeah, it featured in Cruzin magazine issue 16 on the front cover, I don't have a copy so if you have one you want to part with........................ Laughing
