    likely will not start on this until after we move . these 2 cars will in all probability retire me out of the car business . with rat rods and now telsa transplants i just really dont care much for it any more. i'll still build my gasser and play but not at all interested in where things seem to be headed .

    I must not be seeing what you're seeing??? I see guys building more traditional stuff on a daily basis on instagram from all over the USA. It kind of makes me want to try to find a different chassis for my 40 and go that way.

    You, me, and probably a few others are in the same boat, Shine. Just for thought, a friend of mine has been toying with the idea of turning the back doors on his '57 Chebbie into suicide doors, it would be a heck of a lot of extra work but it sure would be unique!

    these cars will be luxury pro touring cars. my falcon will be a loud obnoxious gasser from my youth . just a fun car . i saw this one and if not for the green roof ( i hate green ) i would swear it was my old car . no cage or hole in the hood but it sure looks familiar to me.

    I've been trying to figure out what's going on there. Is that is that spark plug the cap for the master cylinder lid ?

    Nice finds, it's crazy how you have to drive 10 hours to find a decent car anymore. There used to be one behind everybodys shed.

    yep. lost the plug i guess. there are cars closer but i wont pay 2-3k for a pasture car . one of them was 400 for a title and parts. one was 500 with title and far less rust. the last one was 700 with title and min rust ' the 4dr sedan parts car i traded a trans for. so 1800 and i have 2 cars with titles and plenty of parts . hopefully my godson will show some interest in these builds and begin to learn some stuff .

    soon i'll start my search for a c4 rearend and c5 front , ls/auto . i kept the frame from the sedan so i can build it and leave the others as rollers in case we move sooner .
