  1. I have never been bothered by that question. I think most people ask because they would like to carry on a conversation and that seems to them a good place to start. While I do most of my own work including bodywork and paint I currently have a speedster that I did not build. I have no problem telling people that I purchased it. The guys that want to look down on your not building are few and far between for me anyways, and they re not worth the time. The guys and gals that may ask that do their own work I think most can appreciate we all are not in a position to do that for whatever reason. Hell for me life can get so busy with work (self employed) and family that I can go six months or more without being able to get serious shop time in. Building cars or motorcycles is not for everyone, but it was never a requirement to enjoy older vehicles. Enjoy and ignore the negative people out there. Theya re probably jealous because they can't afford to buy a car.
  2. Well not surprisingly this car doesn't appeal to most of us here on an antique car forum. We talk about about young folks not respecting us or our cars and keeping the hobby alive, and this is a two-way street. Surely we can appreciate the guy owning what he likes, and many of us can appreciate the work involved in creating this car, especially the body and paint work. At a show or cruise night we should not walk by saying WTF, but instead asking a bit about the car. Pick anything. Talk about the color, talk about the wheels. If we want folks to not ignore our work and creations, let's not ignore theirs. Just me two cents worth.
  3. I did the same this past winter and difference is light and day! Best $200 i ever spent 9 8' strips in a 14'x 40' garage lights the place up.
  4. Just had to go and post this did ya? I had just about talked myself out of going to Hershey this fall because of previous scheduled engagements on both the weekend before and the weekend after Hershey. A love walking the swap meet looking and asking questions and learning about all kinds of stuff and purchasing a few that I absolutely do not need. I might as well start making travel arrangements tonight.
  5. Collector vs Hoarder. All depends on the attitude of your spouse.
  6. Can you find someone in your state who deals with selling classic cars for advice. If you can't title it you sure should be able to sell it with a bill of sale to someone in state that only needs a bill of sale. Good luck. I hate you have to deal with such frustration.
  7. Great looking car. I would have been a nervous wreck watching him back that car out. Enjoy it!
  8. My 1919 Chandler's exhaust and intake manifold is one piece.
  9. A Chevette was supposed to be my first car. After a test drive we walked through the dealership to do the paperwork and I saw a 1969 Kawasaki 500 H! someone had just traded in. Much to my parent's dismay I came home on it instead. Best $1300 I ever spent!
  10. Have you checked with your state? In Georgia I purchased a jeep that the title had not been signed over and the person had died. I just had to have a police officer come out and confirm the VIN and that looked up to verify it wasn't listed ad stolen and I got a GA title for it.
  11. Beautiful car. Makes me miss my '60 Caddy though it was no where near the beauty of yours. Is that a stock color?
  12. Well you all are smarter than me; I just keep making the same mistakes over and over.
  13. I don't think that is unusual. many cars today do their job well and without any fuss or special attention on our part. Unless there is something unusual like performance or luxury I think a lot of us feel like we are just driving a well oiled appliance. When our Hobby cars that we do feel attached to were new most people driving them probably felt the same way we do about modern cars. It was a vehicle to get places. But I sure get what you mean. I love my Frontier and all it does without any fuss, but I wont be giving it a name any time soon.
  14. Hey, I know that guy! He sold me new guitar strings for my air guitar.
