    hey whats up everyone my name is joe im from a small town in Tennessee(45 min east of memphis) I have grown up around hot rods and kustoms all of my life, i was one of the lucky few to be born into a Kustom family. I love all sorts of cars but mainly REAL HOt RODS and KUSTOMS. Over the past few years i have really been into the odd ball cars that noone really builds and just imagining what it could look like. I am currently workin on a 59 Ford Custom 300 that my great grandfather bought brand new, so far i have airbagged it and shaved the doors and trunk gotten rid of a ton of emblems and tunneled the tailights 2", future plans are 4 65 riviera seats with a full center console flowing to the package tray, and some sort of a green paint job so who knows maybe it will be done one day oh yeah I am building this car completely myself from suspension to motor, paint interior all in my shop anyway if you have any questions feel free to ask:cool: later everyone

    Very cool project. it's good to do the different/orphan cars up, especially as kustoms IMHO. Bummer about the fire, but it looks like you're recovering from it well.
    I came from Paris, TN to sunny California 35 years ago. All of my family is still there, so I visist when I can. In fact, my daughter moved to Murfreesboro about a year ago, and my brother-in-law lives in Nashville, so I've got a lot people there.
    I've got a nephew making a living restoring muscle cars and building street machines in a shop by his house. He's gradually moving towards the traditional hot rods and kustoms, I think. His dad and I were best friends in high school and both drove 55 Chevies, so he loves those.
    Anyway, just wanted to say 'Howdy, and welcome aboard.' db
