    I told myself , when I bought my 32 Ply 3window coupe, THIS IS IT,
    This will be the one that gets finished....You see, I have been buying
    and selling cars for right around 50 years, and NEVER finished one of
    them.......So, I get a talented guy here locally to start on my coupe, 32
    chassis, 315 Dodge Hemi, Early Ford Toploader, all the stuff I want,
    he has made progress on the chassis and then THIS SHOWS UP !!!!!
    What is a guy supposed to do ???????????????????????? And it
    came with a Current/Clean/Title & Plates......

    Finish the one you got going; break the cycle.

    Finish which ever one is closer to being done. . . or else you're going to fall back into that same vicious cycle of buy, sell, buy, sell. . . and you're still left with no car.

    Coupes are cooler than vickies IMO. And cars that run are way cooler than ones that don't.

    Since you can't finish one just buy one done.. There, that was easy....
     
  7. If the price is right buy it and stash it.

    That's my exact thought right there. I know it's tough, I've gotten distracted on so many projects the same way, but every time, I would have been better off to just stay the course.

    Only way it's coming back is if I bring the coupe with me.
