Re: PSYCHO DECKOVER

There is still one around here somewhere that was built for a buddy that had a 220 on it, a couple of them had healty car motors with gear boxes but the ones I remembered with 4 cylenders looked the best to me. The other ones were higher sided and they looked a little goofy to me.
