Brian sent us in a few photos of his great looking Aztec GT fliptop. This car is on my bucket list of ones I am going to build or own one of these days. And this is a great example of one. Not sure what he paid for it but I hope he got a great deal.

Lyn sent us in a few photos of the production molds to the Maxton Rollerskate. He said that he purchased the molds from a sheep herder in Colorado. Lyn then sold them to someone about a year ago, and the person has still never came to get them. They are still in his possession.
Looks like a lot of fun if you ask me.

Seems this is a good fun post,
Buck Rogers move over…George Jetson is on the launching pad….
I guess these are kit cycles, I recall the one I messed with many years ago, it had 4 wheels and the wheels in the out riggers or “wings” would see-saw back and forth as the thing ran down the rode tilted to one side or the other.
From what I have read and been told through out the years is some of these had gyros and or hydraulics that would allow the two out rigger wheels to be off the ground while driving along where others had all four wheels on the ground.
Perhaps an owner will add what theirs does as is seems it varies from jet cycle to jet cycle.
These things seem to have a cult following and tend to fetch good money, many movies will still use them for scenes of the future.
The big issue I see is in Florida 4 wheels is a “car” and it would have to be insured and tagged as such. perhaps their is a gray area if all 4 wheels do not touch the ground at the same time.
This is a stunning car for many reasons, The Aztec 7 was Fiberfabs answer to the Bertone Carabo a really stunning show car that the Aztec will remind one of,
I have heard that many Aztec 7’s were plagued with various malfunctioning issues like parts removed “green” from the molds causing warping.
And if you have never seen an Aztec 7 in person you need to, pictures do not do it, you will love it or hate it, but it has no under cut from bottom of the window down, it’s very flat and straight.
Fiberfab used a rather expensive hard to get windscreen from a lambo so many Aztec 7’s were discarded for that reason alone.
This example looks like they made all hurdles of an early kit in top shelf bounds, The body looks to be finished with a fit seldom seen on “kit cars” and the interior is breathtaking, it feels like I am looking inside a high dollar exotic not “just” an Early kit car.
While I am a VW fan I have never been a fan of overbuilding the VW engines but I have a feeling this one will do just fine.
At the time of my posting this is has no bids, I guess the economy is really hurting things because it seems to me that if a buyers dream was the Aztec 7 the entry price on this one isn’t that far off,
No doubt this is the nicest Aztec 7 I have ever seen and might be the best one there is.
Okay so not really a 100% kit car these things do have their roots firmly in the tradition.
I recall the heading on the old Magazine ads was something like “Whether your blasting through the boondocks or turning heads on the boulevard…”
The Vandetta could be put together in a day or two with pretty much normal hand tools,
This example is one of the nicest I have seen in 20 years and has the added 40 look front end, while he says it has “custom” side pipes I recall JC Whitney selling Air cooled VW side pipes, crazy things left the engine took a hairpin bend then up the side then in to the side pipe, they were different on a rear engine car.
He says “trades” I wonder would he would want my wifes PT Looser?…I doubt it.

I am toying with the idea of having a few dozen tshirts done . I have a local screen printer that will do them cheap for me. I was thinking 12 Black and 12 Navy or Royal. I mean after all, every great website has a tshirt…lol. I did a mockup using another companies tshirt creator . The idea was to have the logo on the front and the domain name and a tagline on the back near the neck.
What do you guys think?
Own a piece of movie history . The Monster car from Death Race 2000 is for sale. It is said to be on a 1968 vw pan and the body is a modified corvette body. They also have the Bull car for sale from the same movie
It would be fun to own that’s for sure!
Thought it was about time to post one of my pieces of yard art, Ahem, “Projects”.
This is my 71 Fiberfab Valkyrie, admittedly she is something of a basket case, looks worse than it really is. I got a killer deal on the car because the seller who was less than savvy mistook a stuck shifter cable for a bad transaxle.Mine is the early Valkyrie being a two piece body with full tilt rear, the wheel base is around 98 inches and the later one piece Valkyries had a wheel base of 100-101.
The keen eye will see my car has had something of a hard life, the hood was cut open and the scoops modded, the front grill area was also modded.I plan other body mods including larger scoops, flared wheel wells and “fixing” the tail lights.
For now my car is powered by a Vortec 4.3 6 Cylinder, while a great engine part of my old school build will include dropping a V8 in there. While I know all it’s short comings if anyone knows of a Kelmark style Corvair mid engine transaxle for sale please hit me up.
