Build this sadistic soap-opera sports car! Oozing with enough parts to make any vampire sit up and take notice! Blown werewolf engine, screaming hollow slicks, gravedigger shovel handle shifter, crushing wide ovals, eerie casket top rails, frightening lantern head lights, haunting lantern tail lights, death-like Barnabas figure, bloody globe side lamps, plated casket hand rails, mausoleum-styled hearse body, inviting opening rear doors, ghost-like grill work running boards and rear step, ugly trailer hitch, tomb-like trailer, sinister plated wheels.

Dave's comments:

OHMYGAWD this show used to scare the daylights out of me and my siblings back in the late 60s. And to think it was on when it was still light out in the late afternoon after school! Barnabas the vampire, Quentin the werewolf--what memories. I was going to buy some of the old series tapes and show them to my kids, but I'm afraid they'll laugh at me compared to the monster intensity they see on TV and movies today.

This rod is based on 31 Chevy Panel Truck.
