I'll keep this story short and sweet, since I already posted it once and it logged me out, lol. Boo. Anyways, this isn't a barn find story, or anything of the sorts, more of a rare find of people. Last month me and a couple guys from the HAMB were hanging out at a car show and we met this dude. He was telling us about this super clean (solid shape) 54 Chevy Bel Air that he had, that he had dumped a lot of money into, but was out of money, skills, and time. We didn't talk about it much more than that, but dide exchange numbers. He calls me a few days ago and asks if I would interested in the 54. I told him that money was a little tight with us just relocating here to Texas, and with me building my 40 pick up. I asked what he wanted for it, and if I couldn't swing it, I knew of some people that could. He said no bro, no cash, I am looking to just give it to you. He said I love the car, and want to see it go to someone that can finish it, and make it cool. I was now wondering the condition of this thing, haha. I drove to his house...a mere 5 miles from mine. He opened the garage door and I about fell over. He said he bought it for 1800 three years ago and it had been in a field here in East Texas for 19 years. I found that very hard to believe. It has 1 rust spot on the rear fender about 1 inch by 1 inch. Other than that, no dents/dings, no nothing. It is the straightest thing I have ever seen. He has at least 3500 in new parts still in the boxes he just gave to me. A full air bag system from Air Ride Technologies and a Mustang II up front. The interior is even all there. All of the glass is good and great shape, except for the windshield, it has a nasty crack. Anyway, he sat there with title in hand, and said if I wanted it she was all mine. I have always had the saying, if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Well, maybe things are turning around for ol' Danny Brown. So, I got her home today, and took a few pics. I will post them on here immediately following this thread. Enjoy! and a HUGE thanks to Manuel for the bad ass 54...I will make you proud brother!
