    I'm trying to find "part 3" of this '36 build, they just replayed the first eposode tonite. The guy that sandblasted that coupe said it was the best one he ever blasted. Does anyone know anything about the Bonneville car Al mentioned he wanted to run 300MPH in?

    Yeah,but they have to be "different,just like everybody else". After all,what is the sense of having money to burn if you can't flaunt it?

    I don't have cable or a dish,so I only see it when I'm traveling and staying in a motel. I'm pretty sure the 29 Model A pickup was staged,though. It was a really nice older restoration. I saw the show where they hauled it back to the show and started tearing it apart. I think that was the show where the idiot named BlueBear was fired. Didn't see the show again until the one where they were unloading this 36 from the covered trailer,and that is what they were doing when I turned it on. I didn't know it came from a museum,but it was obvious it hadn't been sitting in anybody's back yard.

    Coupes turned into convertibles never look right. I was thinking the same thing about why not just use a glass body. Did you see the really nice '32 B-400 in the background on some of the shots? It's probably the next car slated for Boyd's billetization plan. They should give him more hours of community service if he ruins a B-400.

    I want to hear/see the stories about the guy/gal who built a totally bitchin' sled lying on their back in their dirt driveway, in the middle of the night with nothing but an adjustable wrench and a beat up screwdriver, In a t-shirt, in high humidity, bug infested weather, and only by the light of a damn cigarette lighter.

    Oh yeah, in the rain........ after working 12 hour days in swealtering heat.....

    You guessed it, blood sweat and tears, creative ingienuity, stickwithitness, and some badass metal skills is what gets my respect. :D :D[/QUOTE]

    It really is a shame this happened to a rare car that was that nice...
    To me that is vandalism.

    But to put it in Historical context, it is not like this hasnt been done by other Hot Rodders before.
    As nice as the car was, at least it wasn't a one of a kind Detroit Concept Car or one of the most Beautifull Race Cars that ever Raced on the Salt( the Lincoln Futura and the Chrisman Coupe ).
  14. Maybe Boyd could take a few tips from Marshall :)

    The discovery channel is actually pretty good at staging things.My brother worked at a local Vegas custom shop, while they were filming an episode of Rides for their sister channel, TLC.They worked on a 67 lincoln for one of their customers.To start with, the car ran fine, but the directors made them push the car into the shop by hand.Nine times!I guess they wanted to get the right shot for the camera.Then, they crammed over two months of work highlights into about a half hour.To me, the funny thing is that they didn't show any of the problems that they had with it.Like the lcd monitor falling out of the dash, and the power windows failing.And in the last part of the show, they show all the crew supposedly taking the lincoln out on the town, partying, with a limo in tow.Tlc dropped several grand on this club hopping adventure, that makes it look like they were all high rollers, and friggin' rock stars.Ahh, showbiz.

  16. I wish hankcash would hijack this thread......
