    This coupe was a daily driver a year ago. Probably a 9/10 car.guts garage caught fire. Burned to ground.the car didn't have full coverage car insurance so the home policy wouldn't cover. Came to customers house today. Owner said no one would haul it off.so I did. Cool yard art I guess..rip lil coupe 20180115_101658.jpg 20180115_101650.jpg 20180115_101635.jpg 20180115_101626.jpg

  4. It will probably never be pretty again, but I bet it could still haul ass

    truck load of cash.. But I would build it.. in fact it's better than some I've started with. It still looks like a car body.

    I've seen Mcqueen on here bring a 34 coupe back from WAY worse than that. It looked like it had been hit by a train when he started with it.

    Rub it down with aluminum foil , it will look fresh as when it left Henry’s garage . Really sad stuff , just thankful no one was seriously hurt , sucks it has no insurance for loss recovery .

  16. Why is it dumped there upside down, and it looks like an easy fix to the right person.

    Have a little respect and at least turn it right side up for some pictures.
    Start soaking it in penetrating oil and save it!

    just burns me up when this happens - Ha!
     
  28. Looks like it was pretty solid before the fire. Almost nothing is beyond saving for a lot of very talented guys on here. Some of you guys just amaze me with metal working skills.

    Doesn't look much worse than the other upside down rusty Model A coupe that a HAMBer dug out of a ditch recently - maybe combine the two?
