    I think I see some rust developing around his ears.

    Can't sell the car in my avatar. It belongs to my dad, but he's 98 now, so I figure sometime in the next 40 years it'll be mine. Hope I last longer than him.

    I'll sell the picture. And I'd sell the car, if you offer me too much money for it.

    It is still a work in progress, who would want to finish it. Most importantly, I'd lose money and I can't afford to throw it away to do the same thing again.

    Yes. Already sold it and replaced it with more projects.
     
  11. If you changed your avatar, what would be next, your name too? Madness. ..

    In regards to the question, no.

    a) I have way too much invested and have completely over capitalized

    b) I didn't spend the last year of my life working 2 jobs to give up now

    And

    c) Dreams are not for sale

    I would for a fair price. I'm getting too old for it, and vintage racing in Minnesota has gone to hell. Either the rules are too strict, the cars are too new and too fasr, or they are "clutch and starter" meets only, that ironically, exclude most quality open wheel cars.

    Luckily, I have several replacements in the wings.
     
  15. I want to buy Tfeverfreds avatar....ohhhhhh Yeahhhhhhhhhh

    I think I should sell mine before I kick the bucket. My kid or others in my family have no idea what it's worth.

    Kinda like that dog though. He'd be a keeper!
     
  18. For the right price....its for sale. But I'd have to atleast break even money wise and then some.

    I would prefer not to, but if someone offered way more than it is worth (stupid money), I would sell.

    No. Means to much to us and the Zartman family.
     
  25. Not again. I sold it once and it took 20 years to get it back. I change my avatar a lot out of boredom.

    Yes. Getting to old to crawl out of it. :( And 31 Chevy is nearing the end of third rebuild in 49 years. That one is not for sale.
     
  28. Sold mine 7 years ago. Many projects, too little time. Isn't that what bucket lists are for?.
     
  29. I don't see it happening at this point. I've had it since 1978 and I'm just getting it where I think it's starting to look good! :)
     
  30. I'd rather trade for something after it's up and running but I'd entertain all offers for it as I work on it.
