  2. Snow? what snow?
    I just got back from Sellersville PA,
    (bought some wheels and tires!)
    Lots of flashing warnings and calcium prep
    on the roads, but not a flake!
    The Wasp looks great! The car too!
    Regards,
    Tony
     
  3. Guess I got outta Dodge before the fireworks!
    The car looks killer and you made it yours
    in a perfect way!
    You are a lucky man, you think like a kid!
    Regards, and buona nottta!

    Enjoyed reading about your build - A dropped axle would have been nice - It is a nice little speedster!

    Extra tires are not a huge selling feature.

    Looking at your ad, you found the answer long ago: QUOTE: "Don't like the speedster body???
    Then take it off and put a pickup bed on it." End Quote.


    I really think the boattail is hurting the percentage of lookers-vs- buyers. Toss it, and slap a real Model A bed on it, shorten if needed for the best bang. I almost think you have to do this in such a poor/unstable so called economy. Many areas are barely surviving...so don't buy the main stream news that says "it's all good"

    The heart can't be considered when trying to sell a car. It's just iron, nothing more, at this point. If it was built in the 50s and was in a magazine back then, it would be more than just iron.

    One point about selling ex-trog builds is that some people are quite aware that these cars were built to only be able to race one year only, and that some are built less than what a real street build quality would be. It's a stigma to some, and sloshing a car in wet salt ain't the best resell feature :)

    and...so many other folks are also lacking time,.. and some are lacking the skill to make it their own.

    we live in an era of brainwashed "impulse buying", so it has to look the part if you serious seller. If the tail is not welded or moulded the the pickup cab, just bolted...then hire some moonlighter local guy to do the swap.

    You just need to wait for the right ass for that seat.
