    This is true. Bought the truck for $800, sold it as roller for $500. Keep motor, trans and spare 8rt flattie that comes with it. So two flatheads(one possible merc) and tranny for $300. I thinks its a good deal. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1441375933.514877.jpg

    Lol... My wife won't even step foot in the garage, let alone wash a part or use a wrench... Afraid to get dirt or grease on her...

    She loves customs and rods, but doesn't realize that you have to get greasy, dirty, and bloody... They don't come nice and shiny like that...

    I admire your determination, at strike 3 I found a fresh (running on break in rig ) flatty, so I just caved and paid the man. hope this one is fit to go!

    Actually this makes 6 flatheads and 1 banger that I've bought in 2 years. But who's counting? If i these don't work out, i may sell everything and start golfing.
