Santa's got a new ride Rudolph!

What are you going to use as headlights and tail lights?...id think 32 deuce for the headlights and a 59-60 caddy for tail lights (think blues mobile) :lol:

Man, that is the coolest ride I've ever seen for Santa. Rudolph is gonna be pissed...haha. Can't wait to see how you finish this up. You got about 24 days left and counting, you better get cracking.

 Just a quick update for those who might be interested .   The paint is finished and the pinstriping is done .  I started the upholstery yesterday and should have that finished in the morning .  The engine is finished and just needs to be installed .  There are still a lot of little things that need to be done and after that it's up to Santa's helpers to wrap all the toys and get the sleigh loaded up !    Fourteen days 'till Christmas Eve . . .  looks like it will be ready !

This is AWSOME! I always wanted to recreate that mail truck at the begining of the Christmas show "Frosty the Snowman"

Anyone remember that?  Like a 29 truck with a flat bed, half track on the back and ski's up front..This thing blows my idea out of the water..or snow..Can't wait for the finish.

I saw this picture and it reminded me of your build. I thought it would be some inspiration but I see you have her done already. Can't wait to see how it turned out. 81ab70dbb80481cf994d774964cde7d8.jpg
