  • Damn I want this

    Car is real close to one I had back in high school......even won two trophys
    at local drag strip with it.

    It was a rattle can car and had red line falsies on it...no front bumper.

    I'd rattle can it in black primer.....put some red lines on it....get the six banger up and running
    and drive the snot out of it.

    So Brian.....give me some advice......how do you break purchases
    like this to the little wifey?

      Not sure on the breaking news part. But, if you do get it and want to sell those skirts. Advertise them on LA's Craigslist. The lowriders will kill for those here.

                      after searching for some parts for our '54 - you'd be a fool in everyone's eyes but your wife's for not bringing that home with you for as close to a grand as the guy will go - the asking price seems pretty reasonable to me as long as there are no holes where there shouldn't be any! man that thing has monumental potential - sand, epoxy primer to seal it, then whatever you want on top to give it the right first car vibe.... just stop that surface rust now before it gets too pitted....

                        Don't try and hide it like the other poster said. I tried that several years ago with a new Harley Road King that I hid in my friend's garage for several months till she caught me bragging about it to a friend on the phone. That little boo boo ended up costing me a 5 carat diamond tennis bracelet. Buy it and just bring it home like it's no big deal. Trust me........

                          My technique is similar to the WW1 trench warfare tactics applied to attacking machine gun posts.

                          Take a deep breath, make the sign of the cross, go over the top and charge headlong at that SOB with the bullets flying!

                          The good is that the firestorm is normally over quickly. The bad is that every now and again, you catch a bullet. So far none of my wounds have been fatal. HA!
                          That which you manifest is before you.

                            I just bring 'em home. Wife don't mind too much, neighbors hate it though..
                            Especially when I brought the ghetto S-10 home with the busted control arm.
                            I parked the busted control arm side against the garage so it don't look to 'billy.

                              you need another project... other than that, maybe owning a shop in another state would be good too.

                              5 carat for a bike? seems worth it
