Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

A message board & forum for automotive builders, fabricators and customizers who think outside the box.

    49 F8 cab + Craigs list

    Post  tomget on Thu Jun 18, 2009 9:18 am

    Wasn't sure where to post this. Hope this location is OK, I see there's a neat look pile of sheet metal and some new tires and wheels for sale over in Cotati area of Northern Calif. Just over the hill about an hour for me.
    Maybe your interested. If I had more space and more money I'd be interested.

    49Ford F8 cab plus fenders etc plus 6 brand new tires and non widow maker wheels. Apparantly there's no frame/motor etc. But it has Calif title-non op.

    That's definetely something that belongs here. Sharp looking rig. I want it. Can you by chance go to it, and look it over? Get more photos of it, and post them up here. If not, no big. I'll try and get a hold of the guy this weekend. Good find Tom. That's how we spot these old beasties.

    Awesome. I won't have time until at least tomorrow evening to try calling him. I'll try and do that tomorrow, if not, then Saturday. When I talk to him, I'll let him know that I may have someone come look it over and get some pictures for me to examine.

    I didn't get a chance to contact the guy, but I'm not too worried about it. As much as I'd like to pick up stuff like that, I just can't justify spending the time and money, and gas to go after a body. If it was the complete truck, I'd be all over it, but just a body, I can't do it. If I were still on the 22 acres, probably, but I'm on a city street now. I'd have to find a chassis to put it on, and to find a suitable frame and running gear for that, I'd be up in to the multiple thousands, since I can't justify putting an OTR sized body on anything less than an OTR sized frame. Maybe the next one will provide a better opportunity.
