    Ok, we got some pictures and it's sensory overload. He had a ton of muscle cars too, but I don't really care about those, I don't think we got any pics of them at all.

    We got my clip loaded.

    I can't remember a 1/4 of what he told me, but this roof is for some other make for a chop and better roofline.

    He takes the good stuff off the four doors and puts the parts in inventory or uses it or eventually sells the extra parts.

    Dashes out of four doors get used or sold to rat rod guys for #250

    He takes cars to a certain point, then sells them. Basically does the stuff he likes then moves it out. He tries to avoid taking a car above 25 grand, he said a lot of guys can afford a running driving painted car that needs the detail work finished up. He said he can finish the cars, but the 50-100k market is harder to sell.

    He had an extra grille for this one, take the two and make one good one. Also had a full all new glass kit for it.

    This one was a running driving rust free survivor with low miles, I could afford it and was sorely tempted to put a deposit down.

    Found one of these same color but better paint near Greenville NC many years ago. Great looking car seldom seen even when new.

    I've never seen one of these. Looks like a 1949 or 50'ish Hudson? Almost looks like a Ford.

    That 57 ford wagon is gorgeous just as it is. Hope it has a 312 in it.
