Street Beast crap
Hey, gang....keep in mind that if you lost bucks in any form, it is tax deductible as a casualty loss. You can go back 3 years & file a amendment. You can take $3,000 max a year off the top of your taxes due.
Did it in 1963 when my Rod Shop was robbed. Again in 1976 when the shop burned.
Again 2 years ago when GM went bankrupt and we lost much stock.
Again when Ed Roth took my deposit on a motor cycle in 1973 and never delivered.
Several loans that went bad.

streetbeast lawsuits update
You missed the right thread you should be on, go to engines and you should get help there, a lot quicker than you will here. I would help but am a ford guy don't know much about chevy's to help you.

Do the GM 215 heads LOOK identical to the stock heads? Will the stock manifolds work? In California it has to look stock to stand a chance without going through a "referee"
Thanks for your quick response/

Unfortunately alot of guys won't even bother to throw out ten bucks.
That's OK. The money will eventually have to come from somewhere.
When the advertising appears all over the board because Jon needs to make up the coin, these same guys will be the biggest complainers about it.
Hopefully some other members will step up as well.

I just made my second donation and challeng each of you to do the same.
The one dollar suggestion was a good suggestion, but reality is few will donate. So I made up for a few others
Thanks Jon. Let us know the final bill.

My Streetbeast Willys arrived. Probably the last 41 Willys they produced. I'm having a local builder look it over next week. I paid $2,500 extra for a tilt front. They bolted the old hood to the fender section and hey!, a single piece tilt front. the edges are uneven, cracked and chipped. No way to repair without taking it apart. The fenders are badly tweeked and won't sit down against the body. It's headed for the land fill. The trunk lid has no hardware. The door jambs have no latch hardware. No grill ($500.00?), no head lights, no wiring harness, no tail lights, no carpeting, no headliner material; etc. etc.. All of which was paid for. Also no radiator that I paid $780.00 extra for. The body was supposed to be sanded to 400 grit, nope. I'm also expecting $1,950 for overpayment on a front end that was canceled due to the closing of the company and no time to order and install. I know Bob Southern did all he could. I believe Bob is a good man and wanted to do all he could to deliver a good car. It just didn't happen. The money due? We'll see. Well, I could give up but I'm going to try and salvage this mess.
What has happened to our country? Why does this tpye of thing happen everywhere? No pride, no honesty or fair play? Just greed, lies and selfishness. What can I say? Hope all of you are well and let's hope for a better year; and our Warriors safe return from overseas.

Congrats on the win Jon and much thanks to all those who donated to support Jon, the forum and our first amendment.

Father son project & Streetbeasts Liquidation Auction
Congrats on gaining some good times during the build!
Yesterday, the Streetbeasts Liquidation Auction ended with only about 1/2 of the items being sold, with the proceeds going to the Bankruptcy Trustee. Did anyone get Jon that commemorative Coffee Pot?

The welder is back online and to answer your question, this is the first time my father and I have ever tackled a project this big. I have a build thread going on this forum under the title of "streetbeasts build starts" and we'll be updating next week as I've been down studying for exams.
Thanks for the response,

Yes it was and I just passed typing, almost 50 years ago. Well if you get your welder fixed, and know how to weld, you can get the frame done. Just measure twice and cut once and you have it made. One thing about working with fiberglass is if you don't like it glass it up and do it over. You have to learn sometime and a glass car is, to my way of thinking a lot easier than steel. I don't know how far you are on your car, but you have to come up with a plan, lay it out and check it off as you go. I never did go much with the book they gave you to put the car together, did look at it once in awhile, but most of the time we went with the check list we made up. I also don't know how many street rods you have built, so maybe you have to go by the book.
I started building cars when I was 12 years old, and I mean building one, not helping my dad, he was not into cars. I( also worked in a junk yard when I was 12, so getting cars or bodies was not a problem. That was in 1956, so of course the new cars were 56, my job , cut cars up, and you can guess how many would be street rods I cut up. I did set the nice 30'S cars aside, so I had an endless supply.
Well just take your time, cars are not built in a day by one or two guys having fun, and really that's what this is all about, having fun learning about cars bench racing and having a good feeling at the end of the day knowing you are building a car.
Later and just get her done 35terraplane
