Personally, can I be honest? That car is kind of dorky, and whats all that mess on top? It is obvious that it is on a pickup chassis, like an S-10. Which is fine for a 49 chevy but makes a 20s-30s car look like a mack bulldog with the radiator so far foreward of the wheels. I think you should find a closed car that already has heat and a/c, wipers, windows and all the amenitys you desire.
Keep looking.

off subject, but I like that mustang. Want a 2000 Pontiac GrandAm? it has 4doors, a big back seat and a v6 that smokes the tires quite nicely without the ebrake (stupid people flat spot the tires). Runs 15.8 in the quarter, it's stock.

Bought a Street Rod

Good Morning WillowBilly & others, Just a note to let you know I bought a Street Rod after looking long and hard. After taking all of your advice, I bought one that was already finished and in great condition. It is a 1937 Chevy Coupe, 350 V-8/350 Turbo Trans. Take a few minutes and check out the pics of 'Ruby' in my photo album.

Hello Mike

Mike, no that is not the one that was 'sold out' from under me. Things do happen for the best because this is a MUCH better car than the other one.
