  • Behold, the wedge!

    alright, so...I am torn here. Part of me wants to rip this thing to shreds because it is the ugliest gawdamn thing I've ever gazed upon. The silliness of this thing is beyond the words of this wrench bending ape. Now, there is another part of me likes the fact that this is a hand built car, all aluminum and mid engine. This thing has been around here for quite a few years. I don't really know the back story but I am fairly certain the owner built it in his garage, with his own hands...so...there it is...I don't really know how to feel about this thing...so...without further ado...May I present the "Wedge"

    Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

      Rumors of my demise by rollover have been greatly exaggerated.

        Ever see the movie "Deadline auto theft"? That looks like the car thing that causes the crashes.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc34KALO7bU this was the movie that HB Halicki the guy that made the original "Gone in 60 seconds" was killed in.

          I like the ability to tune the carb and possibly change timing while never leaving the drivers seat.

            I'm guessing the builder owns/works in a sheet metal shop.

              Reminds me of a local guy in Culver City who built a Excaliber/Popemobile out of kitchen formica and plexiglass. It was a daily driver for him.

                It's pretty ugly, but you have to kinda' like it 'cause there's so much effort put in it and the result is something that actually is driveable. I think.

                        It looks like one of those fighting robots. It needs a giant saw on the front.

                          that's funny, I was thinking the same thing.


                          If you cant tell by the pictures this thing was as wide as a H1, there was one on hand to compare and the kids and I were convinced that the Hummer was only wider by a few inches at mest

                            Somewhere there is a very large door with no way to keep it open.
