Its 1974, the California Kid was a recent TV movie, Jacobs and Chapouris are all over the Rod mags, and I was hot for chopped '34's. An ad shows up in the Pomona, CA Progress Bulletin for same, for the sum of $350.00, cheap even then. Turns out to be a no-floor shell on a wasted frame, with boatanchor Olds engine. But sweet '40's-early '50's chop, complete with chopped window frames. The guy who was selling it was building rods out of his Shell gas station, located at Garey and the 10 freeway(still there). He was clearing out his inventory, moving to Kansas where "tin was still plentiful, not overpriced like out here." His name was Livingston, as I recall, and his first name was Skip, or Kip, I believe. Never heard of him since, and always wondered what happened with him and his business. Anyone by chance know or heard of him?
