Happy with mine

Well, here goes, I joined this forum right after I purchased a Streetbeast kit from a widow. That is when I looked up Street beast on line. The gentleman that purchased the kit obviously had no idea which end of a screwdriver you hold and was sold the kit as a "do it yourself" bolt it together car. I think it gave him a heart attack because the only thing he did was to attempt to mount the right door hinges on the left door. He was a mailman, a nice guy but not a mechanic. After I looked at the kit I realized it was a replicar not the real thing. I continued on line and found Pete from South West Rod and Custom on line. He had many videos of how he assembled 150 Streetbeasts for owners that could not "do it your self ". I watched intently and proceeded to assemble the "34 Coupe I thought that the company probably should have added $500 to the kit and included a mig welder and a 1/2 hour instruction video. instead of saying "you can drill this and nut and bolt it if you want to" A year is almost up and the car is registered and driving. It is a fun car to drive, learn , and be seen in. No it is not a 34 Ford but it is a coupe and it has modern suspension and modern drive line, A heater and Air conditioner.
I never had anything to do with the streetbeast company itself but if they were not out of business I could probably buy the side hood grills that were an option. I don't take any sides on the debate about Streetbeast, because I feel both side are wrong. Fact is this forum badmouthed them so bad they went out of business a couple of times. How many people got hurt because of them closing their doors? Only the lawyers win, all others are just loosers to a different degree.
