Had an old friend stop by today after not seeing him for 41 years! In 1971 I sold him my unfinished '40 Chev coupe and he just started finishing and fixing it up a year ago! He's just getting around to changing the title, and needed to get a lost title done, as he had lost all the papers over the years.
I always thought it probably rusted away and he never got around to finishing it, but looking at the pictures he's really doing it up nicely! Metal work is almost done, and he's got all the new rubber and glass for it. It's getting a 383 stroker with TH400, and 12 posi. His plan is to make a sleeper that looks almost stock from the exterior, but updated performance drivetrain.
Can't even guess how many times I've wondered what happened to him and the old Chev over the last 4 decades! He promised to bring it by once he's completed it!
