There are so many forums out there, on this almighty web, and I cannot believe this thread, is the only one causing the sales loss.

Business is done by good Public Relations, and customer referral's's.

First and Foremost, Quality and Honesty are the two things that will grow, or break your business.

"Word of mouth" is the best advertisement, it can also be the worst.

With that being said, I don't understand the difference between you talking to your family and friends, or whoever, or posting on a thread, such as this. How could any legal proceedings arrive from this thread alone?

I feel this site was designed, by insight from Jon(and thank you Jon), to help the general public resolve problems with whatever they are working on. If they are having a Quality issue, the members on this site, that have experience on their problem, will give them an Honest answer.

I do not see the difference, whether it is "spoken", or "posted on the "web". Like posted earlier, "Freedom of Speech" is in the first amendment of the constitution, if you don't like it Move back to wherever you came from.

Streatbeast's needs to address the Quality issues, and reform their sales pitches, to succeed in business.

The "legal team" must be busy going after you for devulging SB information as we have not seen them or heard from them. Maybe they got hung up trying to get across the RioGrande. ha ha ha ha

FYI gentlemen, when a supposed "insider" turns from semi-trusted informant to exposed deceiver he/she will naturally turn to harrassment and goading to get his way. I would imagine the goal is to get this thread sent to the dump, we will edit out this persons posts and send those to the dump instead.

It is no mistake that we are now seeing mexican labor pics in an attempt to "get your goat" and cause people to inadvertantly "Slander" Streetbeast in some fashion.

This is the embodiment of what we call on the web a "Troll".

Do not fall for it, if required we will ban "Insider/Opsman" and all his various IP addresses to prevent his trolling on the forum by this persona.

Just a helpful message from your friendly neighborhood Moderatorman.

Because this thread has taken on a life of its own I wanted to check with Jon and the other mods first. They agreed and I have deleted the political posts..... and will delete any that show up in the future. After all we don't want anything to get in the way of these Streetbeast employees making fools of themselves.

This is by far the greatest thread on the internet I couldn't stop reading for over an hour. I am just amazed. Jon, Centerline, Cboy, and contributing members you are all Hero's to the Hot Rodding community in my book. Thank you for all your work in this and it has been interesting .

41willys, You have a great looking ride, keep up with all the hard work. Ever decide on paint scheme?


Can someone please give some sort of clarity on what has just happened?

Hey, thanks, and no decision on paint. It will be two tone candy color on top, silver on bottom. I just can't decide on the upper color, if it will get graphic, etc.

I agree, this gets confusing at times, but it is very entertaining too.

Do a photo shop or simply take a nice picture of the cars side and blow it up to 8x10 or bigger and color it with felt pens or something. You really need to SEE what you are going to do. Or of course find a similar car with similar paint to check out. But cutting a car in two with color does some super strange eye tricks. Darker colors "shrink" what they are painted on. So you can end up with the bottom of the car "growing" out of proportion with the top if you paint the bottom silver and top a darker color.

Be careful!

I'll update the wiki article with the latest drama on the Marc Goldberg issue, and link up that cached photobucket page. Maybe add a short "timeline" on events in this thread?

To clarify what Centerline was saying -- the political posts were deleted from this thread, not wiped from the board. You can find them in Off-Topic and the Dump. We've also been discussing in the mod forum how we might be doing this more often as "political season" is upon us, at least for those in the United States.

Might consider another sub-topic under general discussion for any of us that are politically inclined.
