Project Vamp

Post by Hippie459MN » Jul 26, 2017 2:14 pm

As a few of you might now, This past fall I picked up a 3rd Hydrostrostream to add to my list of projects. A 1982 Hydrostream Vamp. When someone offers you a free hydrostream and you have the room for it and it was only 6 miles away from your house, its hard to say no. This will in no way be happening anytime soon but I plan to hopefully make a nice little family truckster out of this some day. Pulling skiers and tubers and being able to out run everything on the lakes in the process.

I figured I might as well make a topic about it so when the time comes, its already here waiting and also to add for some future discussion. :up:

Just a few pictures of it from when I brought it home to how it sits in my yard at the moment. How you see it, is how it showed up here, moss and weeds and all. Yes, there was plant life in it when I got it. Its nice and soggy and should make for easy clean up. The front grab bar, I also have the end piece for that. My mom put the ladder in it last week so dont mind some of the junk in it. Also, the trailer was used for another boat at my moms and has not come back. haha All good though. Here it is...
