    For the last twenty years or so Frank's five window has been sitting in the back of an 80 foot long barn. In the event the car sells it needed to be in a more accessible spot. So with some help from the neighbor kid we moved 60+ feet of everything Frank accumulated over the last few decades. He sure loved having this car. I think he really liked seeing the look on people's faces when they laid eyes on his coupe.

    He had all the stuff to build it. Taped out the chop about a dozen times, but never could bring himself to break out the cutoff wheel. I was always sad he never got to enjoy this one after he took it apart in the late 70s. The car is for sale in the classifieds and I'm not trying to spam this page. I won't answer any selling questions on this thread. I just wanted to share the first time this old deuce has seen daylight in about two decades. So if you've heard stories about fab32's old hot rod and wondered if they were true, here it is.

    It's amazing how a guy gets a nice project then just lets it sit. Why?

    Your killing me Scott.
    Looks so much better when it's not tucked in the corner covered with stuff.
    Anyone want to buy a kidney, testicle, eyeball, or any other body part that I don't really need to survive?

  13. Given all the posts bitching about prices of things I sold, I presume it's going to be posted for 50% of average market price?

    That's a rhetorical question. Carry on -

    I can understand it, it is a moment in time that lasts forever........until it gets changed. Bob
     
  16. He worked his ass off, for years. His son had a serious accident. Life just gets in the way ... as good priorities often do. He was an awesome dude. It is, and would have been a great '32. We know it. God bless man.

    I can't answer for this situation, but sometimes there are more important things in life that come before old cars.......

    I already made a move @loveoftiki, but couldn't swing it. Just buying that survivor deuce Tudor didn't help my finances any. LOL...
    I did buy a lotto ticket last night though, so there is still hope.

    That's neat, I know that if Frank had gotten back to it that he would have built a nice car.
    I looked for the for sale posting but couldn't find it.
    Anyone who gets to own this car will be fortunate.
    Edit, found the ad. great buy for someone, wish it was me. :)

    He was a great guy for sure. His son was in a car accident last year but is doing fine. Frank is the one who suffered a terrible industrial accident and spent four years in the hospital and endured seven neurosurgeries. Even after all that he still taught a lot of us so much and made you laugh every time he was around.

    Wow, that is awesome. Frank was a great guy and had some nice iron! This is a great example.
