That's some nice work you did on the latch. I really like the Handi-Bus you had...something about those window vans just grabs my attention, I think the little triangle window gives them character! Any kid would be the hit of the neighborhood with that Radio Flyer rat rod!

Just my opinion but I would keep the Hazel's Candy logos on the van. It's got history and sweatiness going for it...Big Time!

Your Delivery Sedan reminds me of the Pie Wagon from Hollywood Knights...

Thanks! Nice `56 Delivery! I like my little Chevy II but the fleet of custom one-off powered peddle cars has out grown it. The Delivery has a 2001 S-10 drive train w/vortec V6 700R4 overdrive A/T.

BTW... Yes! the Hazel's Candies stays. I intend to detail the exterior as is. Will probably touch up some of the original paint with base-coat white so it'll fade-in with the rest of the "patina".

I'm putting the link to your gallery here so that others can just click on it to see your cool vehicles, including those power pedal cars!!! Good idea keeping the logos...takes plenty of time to earn that kind of patina and it looks really cool when left on the vehicle! There was an old race van one for sale a while back that had the original logos and it was really nice...

Thanks for the affirmation regarding the "Hazel's Candies" logos guys. I do hope to collect some history & photos to augment the patina...
