Li'l Gasser

 

Flyin' Fickle Fuler of Fresno, Original year: 1970, Designer: John Bogosian

 

No fuelin'

 

Lil' Gasser is designed to light your fire!

 

It's a show 'N' go octane machine loaded with fun features!

 

F'rinstance:

 

- Authentic "oily American" Styling

 

- "pumphouse" cab

 

- big "pollution solution" tank

 

- "fuels rush in" filler caps

 

- brute boots up front joined by a dropped tube axle

 

- four-track superwide slicks in back for a boss bite

 

- super "nitro nibbler" Ford overhead cam engine, muscled up by an "emission impossible" blower/injector combo and "flameout" exhaust headers

 

This is my version.

 

While starting and painted, it spent a few years in the box, because missing parts blocked the assembly.

 

The mods: Front lowered, aluminum mesh in the cooler, wired motor, windshield bracing made from 1mm chrome steel wire, modified wheels from LEGO, red LEDs as back lights.

 

Hope, you like it.

Real nice job on your Li'L Gasser build as I built one just last year, and it's a neat kit to have on one's shelf.

Super nice Li'l Gasser Bobby !   Love the color and the extra detailing you've done .

I think I've seen those wheels before but where did the tires come from ?

As nice as I've ever seen this done. Lego wheels, very clever and the crowning touch. More fun than should be legal. - Hooked on a fueling.

Hey Bob, those are wheels from LEGO.
