    Well,I need to dig it up:) My brother called me ,and said he found an old car on his hunting lease.He sent me pics,and said,what he could see was super solid,and I could have it.He dug part of it up,and it wasn't rusted.Here in a few weeks,Im going down to retrieve it,and we'll see how it is.

    That's exactly what I would want if I build another car! That part looks great, hope you guys get it out, and it looks that good all over. Can't argue with the price either! Please post update pics!

    Maybe he will find another one out there buried on the other side ;-)

    Good luck with what you discover!

    If the other side is all rotten it would make some neat wall art to hang the good half in a shop. :D

    Try not to SINK too much money in it.
     
  17. Looks like even if it is gone its only half gone. Lots of fellas pay to start with less.

    Make sure we know what you end up with and or what you need to make it right.

    I love all the puns on here regarding a half-buried T. Who needs improv comedy when you've got the HAMB?

    That T looks solid! At least on the driver's side.. :) but it looks good. If the other side has a little rust, you've got the driver's side to refer to when making your patch panels.

    Now, for the important question.. Whenever I see a body sitting out in a field, I usually come up with several ideas on the spot as to how I would build it..

    So.. What are you going to do with your T?

    hope there's no "human remains". :eek:
    But, on the bright side, then you'll be all set up with some skulls...:)

    Is this the T you're talking about? I plugged it into Google but none of the results showed a chopped T. Perhaps someone will recognize this and pull out their picture of it post-chop.

  28. Hell that driver's door looks a lot better than a lot of what I see, fits 26-27 T coupe and Sedan, and 28-29 Closed cab pickup... try to buy one and be prepared for sticker shock...
     
  29. You just might get a pleasant surprise on that one, if it still has paint on it that looks that good. But if not, you just have to find the one somebody left sitting on the driver's side instead.
