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 was expecting both units were going to be parted out. Reason being that although there were enough parts to assemble a nearly complete car, it would require a considerable amount of labour to do so.
A few days prior to this, I was told that the Impala coupe body had been dropped on the ‘field car’ rolling chassis at a mutual friend’s shop. I’d just call it a pleasant surprise. Knowing my friends, it wasn’t any surprise that the newly revived coupe had been dealt off to another project car seller. (Perry’s Project Cars) BTW. Some people might get their noses out of joint over this, but the outcome is that one more car became a viable project instead of becoming re-bar. Any car lover can appreciate this.
This also is an example of how things were done in the old days. A little sweat equity could buy you things you couldn’t otherwise afford. Of course, there are the benefits of not paying the government. A win all around. Needless to say I still have a few vehicles that could use saving, so feel free to have a look at the rest of the website. Later, Jeff
