I went through a lot of Oxygen and acetylene.. the good ole days,,never knew MIG welders were around couldnít afford one any way.. lots of you younger Hot rodders donít know what it was like years ago we didnít roll in cash and parts and chrome everything. My 1st dirt car the roll cage was made of Cow stanchions from a barn Fire,some of you guys have no idea????
