  • 37 Dictator rod FS- wrecked

    Looks like a nice car and a decent price. Not a real bad fix, but OUCH!

    agreed Bob ... looks like a nice car if one can find replacement metal for the front. I know this guy must be sick about the damage to his car.

      From the type of damage it looks like he rear ended a truck.

        Kinda makes that approx $250/yr classic car insurance look like a great buy. It's a shame he needs to lose the car because of lack of coverage.

            I bet with the right front fender could be straightened. Proper placement of a porto power, a block of wood from behind, lots of shrinking but with the metal used then it cuts down the parts list cost. I would jump at this if finances were different, but I'm not alone these days.

              Once again...a clear sign I'm broke! This prompts me to comment on one of "John Clary's LAWS OF LIFE." ...THE AVAILABILITY OF GOOD DEALS AND THE MONEY TO PURSUE THEM ARE INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL

                  It's a Bomb! What a great La Bamba for someone to recover. Really sad to see it crunched though.
