Your car looks like ALL the other Street Beast ... not a 34 Ford.

Someone has drank the cool aid

No more from me ...

I give up also here. Enjoy your forum here but its someplace where I don't belong from what I can see here since according to most of you I am driving a Kit car. No problem fellows enjoy this forum where most of you all think alike. I plan on deleting my build off of this forum also and all pictures of my build. No need to try and help anyone here as I tried to do with any CMC or SB projects any may be dealing with since I feel it was all a waste of time coming back to this forum. I really don't belong here with this crowd.

Sorry you feel this way ... most everyone here has stated that you have a nice built Beast. I do not see the problem with it being a called kit car.

What else can you call a car when the chassis and the frame come in a box from the same folks ... and the parts are dedicated to be used only with each other. You got a instruction manual.

This here is NOT a kit car ... in the truest sense ... but will require dedication, money, talent and a lot of effort to get back on the road.

You should NOT leave ... you can be a asset to the board ... but then you must do what you feel is best for you.

You can voluntarily stay away, but requests for account deletion are typically not granted.
Anything you wrote, that you were unable to edit yourself, will stay up. If you thought it was good enough to leave up for the 10 day editing period, it's good enough to stay up indefinitely.

That's the rules regarding your request.

Sorry you feel the need to go, you won't find anyplace where all the members will agree with everything you say.


BTW, you do have a kit car. Call it whatever you like today, but that's what it is.

Perhaps you should read what you wrote about a week ago, post 888 in this thread...

People still call my car a "kit car", I get tired of correcting them. To me a "kit car" is a body slapped on a VW frame. There was absolutely "NOTHING" about my car that was "KIT". You need to stay IMHO.

I think this thread gets off point every once in a while. To me the problem is Streetbeats management tactics - overstating the simplicity of the build and not timely delivered parts.

My opinion...but what do I know?..........and, who really cares?...I don't

If your car came from a factory other than Ford etc in the year of manufacture..........steel or fiberglass....................it's a kit car.

Sorry to see you're leaving. But... let me give you a little friendly advice. Most other streetrod forums will have similar opinions about Fiberfab/CMC/Innovative Street Machines/Streetbeast products so just be aware of that. Their cars are not well accepted my most knowledgeable people in the hobby so be advised that you'll have to defend your car where ever you go.

You really do have one of the nicest CMC kits I've ever seen.

Good luck.

Multiple user names and out and out deception (or low level attempts at it...) are strictly forbidden. That's actually grounds for immediate banishment. However, for now, I want to see how you'll try to explain this. I'm ready and waiting with the hip waders.


In a while, Chet.
I am a computer geek by trade but a car lover by heart.

It is easy to have the same IP address from the same location. It is called PAT/NAT (Port Adress Translation/Network Address Translation). Basically the inside private address is translated to a common public IP address. If they both work for the same company hitting the internet from the same location it is quite possible to have the same IP address in public.
