OK - everyone CALM THE HELL DOWN!!! I just got off the phone with Rudy, the Shop Manager from RexRods near where I live. Apparently the owner Keith is out of town but has been getting hammered by all the posts and comments on H.A.M.B. about my car and had Rudy call me to see what the fuss is all about. We had a very good conversation and he thinks there is the potential that this car may be a "historic survivor", especially when I told him the current builders pulled a bunch of old newspaper out of the doors and they dated from 1947 California! We both agreed that we havent ruined the car yet, other than disassemble the body and blast off then old laquer paint. All the pieces are still intact. Everything is now on hold until Keith and/or his guys can come out and look at it. Are you all happy now!? I thought I wanted a bitchin' 'Resto-Rod' with a prefab chassis, tilt-steering, and a miles-deep paint job, but apparently I'm destined to drive an old A-Body-on Deuce frame-with-'32 fenders, battle-scarred warrior from back in the day. Will you guys at least allow me to re-do the interior?
