    well i guess it could be the end for the ol gal now.. after owning this car for 27 years, and already totaling it once in 1988 not sure what the hell im gonna do with it after the insurance companies figure it out.. the guy that hit me head on was found at fault.. the frame is mangled and the motor is even sitting in crooked !!! i know i can fix it, just not sure if i will.. but in the mean time if anyone has a lead on parts for it shoot me a messege!! thanks dave

    Of course, it's a shame. Glad you're not hurt.

    Your car was beautiful, as was Southard's Chevy.
    But if you ever wanted a radical custom, now's your chance. Here are a couple of other famous '58 Chevys, just to get you thinking. You may not like these, but with your vision you might come up with something that you do like. After all, you're halfway there! :D (And you have owned it a long time!)

    And one more. Dave Crook's '58 Pontiac (before its post crash re-style). Like I said, just food for thought.

    Sorry for the loss my man. I may actually be able to help out with parts, let me know what you decide to do and if you are thinking of fixing it I may be able to scare up a parts car. Holler at me sometime son son.

    Glad you're OK , Dave. I've been driving my '59 as daily transportation for the last few days & people treat it like another effing Hyundai. They ride my ass, cut me off, put the squeeze on me, etc. White knuckles all the way! I've seen your work, you can fix it & you should. Squeeze that SOB's insurance company for all they're worth.
    Good Luck,
    Rick
     
  30. Damn, that's a hell of a way to get a decent excuse for not going to TyRods:(

    So do we call her Phoenix now? Will she raise from the ashes??

    Sorry to see this.

    Dennis
