    Well after you salvage & save all the good stuff I guess you can just scll the rest for scrap to get a dollar or two for your time invested. Or from your last photo are you mocking up the build with the placement of the 4 tires & wheels? Good luck, Jimmie

  9. Let me be the first to say...it'll buff out.

    That's a rough start and will take some vision and perseverance to see that one through.

    Have chopped up some real rough stuff, but I don't know if I can compete with that one. Although I too would have grabbed it for the hinges if I'd been offered, and looks like there might be a dash rail left too, not that they're hard to find. Hinges are a good score.

    I know a couple people thru the years that bought AA rear ends. They both died before cashing them in.

  15. One time I flipped the remains of a '30-'31 Tudor (butchered into a truck) on it's galvanized tin roof and actually DRUG it home for two block behind my car. Kinda noisy, the neighbor thought it was funny. Salvaged the shortened; but surprising good sub-rails; guy that gave it to me got the tank and hinges. and if I remember right the guy he got from took the doors. I suppose now-a-days the firewall, door posts, etc would be saved.
     
  16. One I found, and thought it was bad. But you win! 456.jpg

    C'mon, a gas cap, some plexi, you'd have a 'convertible' sedan!

    I've brought some stuff home from your house Smitty! Sometimes you need a chunk off of that or a reveal section from this.

    You're completely unhinged!
    Well... now you're not.

    Hey guys. Try this while you're stuck at home wondering what else to eat. Super easy, super good. Hot cook-style chocolate pudding poured over vanilla ice cream. You're welcome. LOL

    Well, the dash and the tank might be good.

    And – if you get a Model A book and pick a year for when the serial numbers you want were used – pick one. Chances are there's not that number registered in your state after 90 years. Harbor Freight has the number punches – just try to line them up kinda nice.

    That beats anything I drug home to cut a part out of it. I've drug plenty rough stuff home to get one part off it in the past 57 years since I was 16 with my first car though.
     
  30. The question I have is, why would anyone drag something worse than that anywhere?
