yea, that is what I figured. For my first toy I may buy a half-finished project of someone else's. Just a thought, I am just nervous about getting in over my head. After she is done I want an orginal willys that I can drag and drive on the street every day. Not gasser style, while cool it is not practical for dragging. I wil drop it with a stuffed 426 -sigh-. Both will see daily street/strip use, if I have my way and a little luck. Oh well, to many projects not enough money

Ya, I'm bored. I wanted to just bullsheet with some people from New Zeland. Instead, I am subjected to look at something done well and on the side of originality. I'm so upset that I'm going to download this picture I found on another wed site called the "Cholopy", drive over to the shop and take a new look at this hulk of a rusted 41 Chevy mordoor sedan. I don't need this sheet, I wallow in it!

I represent those comments about my age. And just when you think you know something, the gray matter starts to go bad! Bummer. Actually, I still relate to my highschool days more than any other era. Don't even remember what happend to the 80s and 90s. My adult children are like a bunch of old people walking around. Don't know where they came from.

Draglink; Love your pics. Much rather see these than $$$$$ billet paint jobers. Notice you chickened out and didn't redo all the wood! We did on my son's '36 and I vote for square tubing!!

Hallo; if you can weld sheet metal don't you EVER appologize for not welding plate stuff. That's like saying "let's dump our 25 game wining lefty and keep our 255 hitting catcher!"
