    @Ryan .... just fucking buy it, I know you need it
     
  3. We all have that Dream car. Until you buy it the fever never goes away. It's generally the sticker price that stops us from fulfilling that Dream. I can tell you that once you cough up the Bucks and get it home the Sting of the number fades into the past and is no longer thought about. From there on it's all Satisfaction and Smiles. I agree with Moriarity, just buy it! You'll never Regret it.

  6. I doubt it. LOL

    Would be cool if he rolled into the HAMB drags with it and set up in the pits next to the trailer.

  7. You never pay too much, you buy a little early,,,
    Think of 5 years from now when it shows up at BJ with a asking price of $50,000, and you go--
    DAMN!

    I restore vintage dragsters and at 12g that's frickin cheap for a car that complete. The value will go up and make more money then bank interest, its an investment,

  11. I too thought it was cheap.....
    Not to mention f@&$ing cool as hell. Someone needs $11,000 in their pocket and then go ring that doorbell.

    back around 1980 a girl I knew had one in her parents garage that belonged to her brother who had passed away.
    wonder if it is still there? can't remember where the house was now.

    If this thing were in Austin, I'd go look at it... fall in love, and then go home and think about it. A couple of days later, I'd gather the courage to buy it only to find it was already sold.

    Olympia would be a pretty long tow. You can do it though, bet you wouldn't have to pay for a room the whole way.

    That is totally you Ryan standing there with it, but I know you would never stand there like that for a pic.

    I've always loved the Cheetah the most, but the Devin and Kellison are close seconds. I know where a Devin is sitting in a garage in Kansas....

    Ryan doesn’t go fast anymore. He’s into customs, and flatheads.
