  11. Quick little back story while I burn up the last 30 minutes of work.

    I use to own a 51 Chevy pick-up, Nice little truck I could hop in it and go anywhere!!
    One weekend I'm sitting next to my truck at a car show Minding my own business . Some random dude steps over my display and introduces himself! Well things went down hill after that.
    After about a years worth of hanging around with this random dude, watching him build this rotten, rusted out hunk of a thing that he called a 32 sedan. The bug bite happened.
    Before I knew it my truck was gone! In-case I had not mentioned it before It was a nice truck!!!! Next thing I know I own a 34 Pick-up and A pile of parts that at one time or another belonged to 8 other cars. The whole time I'm thinking to myself " what in the hell have I done" !!!!!

    One mans' junk......... This is why I horde car stuff in the south 40 on the ranch. Never refuse a part or a car "thing" that's free :cool:
  16. Nice work, enjoyed your little story on how you got the sickness too. :D
    Look forward to watching how this turns out.
  17. Sounds like a soup sandwich, but looks like a pile of badass!!! :D

    I'm doing similar: a failed coupster, cowl sides from another, coupe roof from yet another, cabriolet quarters, fordor doors, subrails pieced together from 3 cars... more parts to go. all horse traded, with no real out of pocket money... just other people's junk.
    kinda fun, isn't it?
