Leadfoot has a red telephone that connects directly to the junkyard. Wish I had one.

The average person sees a POS.......
Its a cruse but I see potential......
Just in these pictures I see a set of solid rear doors for the chop van.Enough steel to build a nice steel Gullwing for the passenger side.a compleat roof to finsh off the top of the chop van.The list goes on......
Even if you did not have the chop already it could be enough there to save that one.....thats a scary thought huh......LOL
.........Wookee

Wow! Don't know weather I should laugh or cry. It's like a pack of wolfs have gotten to it slowly gnawing away to its bones...and from what you say may not even be much of those left.

Speaking of weather, it looks cold there... unlike here, where it's been unseasonably warm.

my back yard at the shop is always shady
but this week has been warmer than normal
today things started to get cooler
,low 40's overnight the next few nights and next weekend they say S N O W
... so nex week i'm hoping to have this done and cut,so i can do what i gotta do where it's warm from there
