    I think I remember seeing this car quite a bit at a diner on Mentor Ave... is that your's?
     
  2. Yes it is! The previous owner parked it in front of his first restaurant called Mentor Lunch. Then he opened a bigger restaurant in Painesville called George's Dinner Bell. He drove it from California back east on his way to his home in Boston with all his possessions. Got off I-90 in Mentor for the night and decided this was a good place to open a restaurant. The rest is history.
     
  3. Found a picture of mine on BangShift from the car show this past weekend

    I love Henry J's but to honest I'd pass on that one for anything more than yard art. I sold a complete no rust roller for $2k last year. Good deals are out there. Even for free you'd be a master metal shaper when you finished that one. If it was something ultra rare I'd say it would be worth it. But when all said an done what do you want to pay for that $380 car? Good for scrap pieces.

    Here's a picture of mine. It just made it home from being stored in Newark and is happy to be in its new home.

    I picked up a pair of 58 Chevy lenses and ground the outside dia to fit into the HJ bezels.
