Folks Of Interest HRP- Let's Face It!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by ct1932ford, Jan 16, 2019.

  1. Lets face it, HRP is selling the 50 Ford he wanted so badly. Danny you know nothing will make you happy unless it's a Deuce. :p I know, because I have the same sickness!:rolleyes:

    Unless chopped up and customised, they are pretty damn ugly. Aptly named. But that's just me.

    Even buying 32's doesn't make him happy. Last year he acquired a fordor and a 5-window, then liquidated both of them. Year before that it was a tudor --> gone.

    selling the 50? that's a nice car
     
  6. It has some rust issues in the usual places, floors and rockers. Lets see, he has the truck and sedan. Did he sell the coupe he bought about a year ago.

    I noticed it in the classifieds a few days ago. Didn't seem odd. You either love shoeboxes or ya hate 'em.

  8. HRP, everyone is watching to see what you do next.
    I agree,a Deuce is way cooler than a Shoebox.
    32"s are everybody's idea of a hot rod.
    Sometimes a guy has to work with what he's got.
    I wish that Deuces were as plentiful up here as they seem to be down there.

    I think this all started with him trying to help a friend, more than lust for a shoebox coupe..

    Ya I know, I would have given my left nut for that 5 window :D Unfortunately that left nut isn't worth much these days ;) :D:D

    I have sold cars - including a couple of shoeboxes - that I bought thinking the "fit" would be right, only to discover that I didn't like them quite as much as I thought I would. Probably a really good move for HRP. Only he knows for sure. :rolleyes:

    Danny,
    You change cars like underwear.
    Sounds like you have something else in your sights.

    up to him - maybe needs more lovin' than he wants to put into it - I have been watching a Cool ride on craigslist for a while now - finally took the time to enlarge the pics and look closely at them - decided to pass since it needs more than I am willing to put into it to reach the final look that I would want in the end -

    I'm pretty sure it's more to do with making sure others are happy rather than himself.
    Most of us are the same...doing our best to keep our loved ones happy and cared for...while still trying to have a little something for ourselves. It's sometimes difficult to find that happy balance. Especially when life situations change. Often a lot of personal sacrifice involved and sometimes changes have to be made. Stuff that real men do.
    You go, Danny!

    Still wish he'd make up his frkn mind! :D
     
  18. Time to reply -

    That statement isn't entirely correct, I still have my old Deuce sedan beater which I have owned a very long time, the fact is I am having a interior installed as we speak.

    You are correct I have sold a few in the last few years.

    Red sedan - gone
    Primer fordor - gone
    Black coupe - gone
    :(
     
  20. Rick is clairvoyant, the sell of the 50 has more to do with family than and their well being than my dissatisfaction with the car, I really do like the coupe. HRP
     
  21. You forgot the black pickup and the orange roadster, oh yeah and the red 5 window. :( HRP

    Yes, going back even farther, there's the black fordor and the black pickup. And now you are even trying to help your friend sell his gold pickup. If we didn't know you better we might say you are a 32 hater.
     
  23. Danny, How long before the great state of South Carolina demands that you get a Dealer License? Just messin' with you. Is it time for the Deuce Run yet??:D

    Danny, when you find another 5 window that won't cost a left arm let me know ;) :D
     
  25. Larry, I'll keep that in mind. HRP

  29. I still would like to build another roadster, but I'm afraid while waiting for my ship to come in it hit a iceberg and went down like the Titanic. :rolleyes: HRP
