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.

Keep kroozen

Way to go Steve.

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.

Sorry to hear you fell under the got screwed banner, but if it will help you out, I have a wiring harness for a 34 CMC, SB or whatever, If you want it I will give it to you, as I used an Enos board in my 33, it might work it might not but all you can do is try it.I had about everything in the 33 digital dash, a/c, pw, remote door and trunk opener, FI engine, now I never checked it, but it's free so let me know.

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?

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.

Well,

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,

Jay K.

Streetbeast

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.
