27

there is a neat story behind this project.
i been driving by this house that has a little mechanic on duty sign out front for years.
i was driving the willys and i stopped one day to see what was up.
and met this older fella that had a yard fulla these hotrods.
we ended up being friends.
one day i called him up and asked him if he wanted to go set off some tannerite targets.
i told him i thought his cars were the coolest and he offered to help me build one.
i came over the next day and asked.
are you serious about this build.
his response was.
i am if you are.
i handed him a henry big boy with marbles sight and said.
hows this for a down payment (i knew he was in love with it)
he sez.
lets go out back and find you a body.
turns out he has been building stock ,vintage and hotrods for 45 years.
this guy KNOWS cars.
i am getting off easy for a few reasons.
1 he wants to build another rod
2 we are buddies
3 he already has many of the important parts
4 he is making me do all of the grunt work
our goal is to be driving this by this summer.

I guess I'm missing something. I can't find the pictures of your finished project.

Looking good !! Be sure to let us know how your trip turns out. I had a 28 Coupe ,chopped, channeled and shortened 10". Couldn't hardly walk after driving over 50 miles. But I sure LOVED that Hot Rod.

the only reason to send 2 of the same side ??? they package better... it would be different to have one header pointing forward... ugly but diff..

yet another update.
after i stopped being so mad i was speaking in tongues.
i sent this email and also speedways response.
BTW that shipping is $53
hello MR Scranton.

is there a way you could cut me some kind of deal on these headers or something.?

these headers order mixups cost me a lot of time and that means they cost me money.

i am seriously considering never ordering anything from SPEEDWAY again.

i simply dont trust the company to send me what i pay for in a timely manner.

regards

William Hedges




William-



I provided my supervisors your words of disappointment regarding the matter regarding your headers. He refunded your shipping cost from original order for your trouble.
