I’m surprised to learn a couple things about Dan Woods today… ! Remember the famous Milk Truck? That guy, not the other one from chop cut rebuild.

May 24th, 2018 by admin

Dan is still working on hot rods, at age 71, in far Nothern California, and one that he did in the 70s was the Mafia Mixer, though I’ve never heard of it before, learning new stuff about old stuff is what I do every day

Notice the artwork on his back wall

and it’s currently in the planning stages of a restoration.

How cool is that!

Also, I hadn’t known that he was part of the crew that built the RoAcH CoAcH, another iconic show car.

In 1978 Dan was part of a build of a modified hot rod with bubbles for a windshield, body moulding like an insect, multiple tailpipes and racing wheels of course.

The brainchild of RoAcH, Inc., the custom show car was designed by Ed Newton and built by Dan Woods, Don Boeke, and a band of merry men. The car was a ISC show-car for years.

The RoAcH CoAcH debut was a monster party during the 1978 NHRA Spring Nationals. The party celebrated the opening of RoAcH, Inc.’s new 100,000 sq. ft. facility, the top fuel drag racing team, and Stan Peterson’s’ wedding.

which I was told 7 years ago at SEMA was getting a restoration… but hasn’t shown up yet

There seems to be a misconception about a shortage of 23 window VW buses… there won’t be any shortage. Have you seen how many they’re building replicas of, at Yumos?

Yumos VW, Semarang Indonesia has a crew of 30, and exports 90% of their finished vans. They make the vans from new parts, old 11 window vans, and a hell of a lot of work.

They take old Brazilian 10 windows, add a new aftermarket nose clip, etc etc is what I get from reading around the internet.

As best as Google can translate:

Yudi makes VW type Combi Brazil into VW type Dakota.

Brazilian combos are rarely glimpsed because the cost of re-assembling with a selling price is not comparable. The form is also considered less unique. Different eg with German Combi. Yudi prefers Brazilian Combi purchasing cost of Rp 20 million, Rp 60 million for the revamp cost. No buyer would pay that much for a Brazilian Combi.

“VW Brazil ngeding, I bought from the owner. His condition was ruined, there was no engine, only skeletal left. The concept of recycling is made into a dakota, “said the man who crossed the world overseas thanks to VW.

“I try to find a gap opportunities by making a basic clone. Take a Brazilian Combi that looks the same. Just change the front shape. Moreover Brazilian Combi population a lot, the condition is destroyed and the owners do not intend to fix it again, “said Yudi.

Planning to buy a high-performance car?

It may cost you more than you figured. State Farm, like others automobile insurers, is increasing premiums on certain high-performance cars.
If you’re thinking of purchasing one, we suggest you contact your State Farm agent before you buy.
He can tell you which cars are affected and by how much.
