An original 58 Vette being modified? That just tears me up, isn't there enough modified cars out there?

I agree COMPARED to todays cars they drive "like a wagon" but it IS a 52 year old car after all. I don't know, I just couldn't do it, call me crazy. Making a hot rod out of some worn out old car or one previously hot rodded and make it better. But to take a nice original car, a piece of American history, it just isn't me.

Obviously, it's your car do as you wish.

.............. Good question, I was hoping it would bring about half the cost of a new Jamison chassis !!

That was the plan for my 62 but my son could not come up with his half of the cost, so we are still riding around in the "wagon" !!
