Customs Dad was right--60 Fords ARE ugly....so I set mine on FIRE!!!! (update on my junk)

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by earl schieb, Sep 18, 2009.

  1. Y'all might remember that thread I started about my Fairlane I traded for a while back ("my Dad says 60 Fords are so ugly they only made em one year")....well, this is sort of an update...:eek:
    I got the hood scoop done and painted, and loaded it up to go to Pigeon Forge last weekend with the hopes of finding a new owner :) after all, I've got 14 OTHER cars that need finished....I'm not a driver, per se---more of a builder----anyway, after two days sitting at the BP station, all I had was a sunburn and a hangover :eek: Not the first offer, trade OR cash, so I loaded up my car and my pride and headed home :(

    Here she is, ready to go. Hood fixed and cheater pipes removed, wires all shined and spiffyed up!
     
  2. By Wednesday, I figured what the hell---I've got tape. I've got paint. Why not change it up?

    Since no one made you an offer you should just crush it.

    I'm normally pretty OCD (ok.....REALLY OCD!!!), but I love the fact that the flames are not symmetrical. Nice work. I dig it.

    There are alot of cars on the market right now so don't take it personally. Takes longer to sell them. Nice car.
     
  18. 60's are cool and the new finish on the lid really pops dude! i'n sure the pic's don't do it justice. povertyflats is correct lots of stuff for sale and i'm glad all ny dough i tied up in real estate this week because i would be going nuts buying stuff. i get calls from people that their 401k's tanked and to recover are selling off their toys for way less that they imagined. look at all the collector auctions combined with estates being sold off containing years of collecting vehicles and parts.

    I'm the same way... OCD... and I like the different flames too.

    I just figured Mike started drinking while taping one side and then had 4 beers under his belt and said "screw it! Im never gonna get em to match..." :D

    Looks great, Mike!

    Reminds me of when I took my daughter to a car show when she was only 5. After we came home, she said: "Dad, we should paint fire on our truck!" - Priceless!
