    I GOT 2WORDS FOR YOU:

    Posted on by

    JUST FOR THE SAKE OF DEBATE: What would you pay for a RUST FREE project car? That is, a rust-free rolling body. Most of us don’t want the original drivetrain unless you are going the full resto route. There are project cars out there for sale that have drivetrains where the owner has dumped a… Read more »

    THEY SAY that there is none so blind as THOSE WHO WILL NOT SEE. I couldn’t tell you who ‘they’ are. Could possibly be from a Simon & Garfunkle song. If you have read some of my previous rants, you will know that I have little tolerance for idiots. Mostly, it is people who begin… Read more »

    BACK IN THE GOOD, OLD DAYS (pre-internet), we actually used to go down to the nearest convenience store and buy a weekly Auto Trader or Bargain Finder (or, the monthly Auto Trader Old Car Book). We would PAY to run a picture ad of our vehicles for sale, or take advantage of the free parts… Read more »

    END OF YEAR MESSAGE It looks as though this year will end much the same as the last. That is, we hope that the coming year won’t be another Train Wreck. Any way, I have a couple of points to discuss here. The first is a continuation of my last rant. Besides the “Is this… Read more »

    MY YARD- MY RULES

    Posted on by

    I recently posted a new page (Chrome n Rust ‘G’ Bodies) in order to market another portion of my ‘collection’. I have recently been ‘outed’ on some Facebook b&s sites, so before I go public (I joined the sites) I thought I would post a few rules that would make interactions with me go better…. Read more »

    GOOD NEWS STORY

    Posted on by

    I recently received an email telling me that one of my ‘old’ project cars was for sale on kijiji with a substantial markup in price. Frankly, I couldn’t be happier. When the two vehicles in question (one was just a body without even a frame under it) left the chrome n rust world headquarters, I… Read more »

    TOO CHEAP?

    Posted on by

    LATELY I have been wondering what it takes to sell stuff online. I have posted vehicles and parts on kijiji and the last few years on FB Marketplace sites. Thanks to idiot governments and ‘plan-demics’, things have been less than predictable. The fact is that when you sell goods that are ‘wants’ rather than needs,… Read more »

    GOOGLE THIS:

    Posted on by

    A few years ago I took advantage of a ‘free’ google listing to help give my commercial operation Over The Hill Classic Trucks! some ‘search engine optimization’ thereby bypassing every East Indian nimrod with a cell phone who was promising top of the listing presence on google. For what it’s worth- some of the corporations… Read more »

    Best Left Unsaid:

    Posted on by

    In these days of political correctness, there are some words you just can’t use. Dropping long-standing team names because some snowflake made a squeak on social media is idiocy to me. It also strikes me that we are handing some people too much power to take things they did not earn. In this age, media… Read more »

    WTF?

    Posted on by

    TITS,TIRES, OR TECHNOLOGY: My brother once laid this on me shortly after his future ex-wife blew up the 400 engine in their Blazer. “If it has tits or tires- it will give you trouble.” My thinking was that he had neglected to check the oil in a good, long time. I’m thinking we ought to… Read more »
