    I was looking at hot rods online while watching the Thanksgiving parade and my old car popped up on Google. Apparently its in SoCal now?? I was told a few stories or it's whereabouts but never really new what happened to it.

    If anyone knows who owns this car and could let me know that would be awesome. I've got some old build pics to share with the current owner. Whoever has it now took it many steps up from when I built it that's for sure.

    Here are some pics I stole of how it looks now. Thanks guys

  8. The car was here in phoenix with Glen Kramer who has done a lot of street rodder feature cars upholstery . Glen put full fenders and running boards back on it. Drove it for awhile and then sold to one of my club mates Bodi. He continued to drive it for awhile and then sold it too another friend of mine Chris in Tucson. Chris had the seat in upholstered black pleated leather and then sold it on craigslist to the person who has it now in CA.

    Id love to see pictures if you have any. It blows my mind how these cars get around! I wonder if the current owner is on the HAMB?

    I think I saw photos of that car at just about every Arizona area event during the time it was running around without fenders. It did get driven.

    Hey,
    Thanks, but you do build some good looking cars , my friend.
    I'm just a carpenter who got tired of cutting shit the wrong length ( short). Now I can put my mistakes back together and get a second chance! BZZZZZZZAP!
    Keep hammerin' away !

    I accidentally stumbled across this while looking for another post... only to remember I had photos of this car from a couple years back. Taken at the Fairgrounds in Phoenix... Rockabilly Bash I believe? First and last time I saw it.

    That just ticks all of the boxes for me, great looking car!

    I'm assuming its a reference to a song by The Misfits, 'Die, Die my Darling' , which was a reference to an 60s horror movie by the same name.
