I think building on a budget is something almost everyone has had to do at one time or another. Used, traded-for and rebuilt parts are what makes the hotrodding world turn. At our junkyard, one of the most sought after 'race' parts was my Dad's rebuilt 3-speeds, for example. 4-speeds hadn't been out that long and weren't in junkyards, or in most guy's street cars either.

Heck, even Garlits started out in dragsters w/an old pair of Chev frame rails. Rails that prolly didn't cost a nickle...
