    I am planning a road trip this fall with a vintage travel trailer, and was thinking of ways to get by on the road, when my old man suggested a "House Call" top chop service. I got to thinking about it and really liked this idea. I thought I would throw it out there and see what everyone thought. I have pics of previous chops completed incuding a 26 T coupe 10", a 31 tudor 8", another 31 tudor 5" plus shortened 7.5"(pictured below), 51 chevy sedan, and a couple 39 chevy trucks. Prices would be reasonable, and finished products slick. All I would need is a place to do it, maybe a little beer, and directions to the closest titty bar. Let me know what you all think. Thanks

    I bet you'd have lots of work. Good idea. I'd think the traveling expenses with all your equipment all over the country is going to kill ya. Good luck!

    I wish you luck. Sounds like a wonderful idea if you can get it going. If I had something I wanted chopped I'd be happy to let you plug in, in my driveway and provide electricity, a hot shower now and then, beer and the titty bar is 10 minutes away. (full nudity in Wv)

    "The Top Tinkers"

    Tinkers, as in the original definition of journeymen metal workers.

    An honorable if not anacronistic enterpise.

    Go for it, and fare well! :cool:

    Well boys, you just set a good idea into motion! I'm glad to see there is a good call for it! I would be willing to travel just about anywhere as long as the temp doesn't drop below 65 degrees! So it looks like San Antonio don't sound too bad!! Anybody in the Keys?!?! Haha. feel free to pm me with your location and what's to be chopped. I will get back to you all. later

    Road trip? Hell, you could actually make a pretty good living at it if you planned it right... travel, sightsee, chop, get paid, drink, see titties, lose money, start all over.
