  • saved from the scrap man

    My buddy who works for a scrap yard calls me with these pictures. Someone drug in a transtar for scrap. he offers it to me at scrap prices. Well I couldn't sleep if I let this dry desert sheetmetal get crushed. I'll be sleeping with the dogs with my wife finds out.

    I think that's a '56. People have restored way worse. At least that sheet metal isn't all riddled with rust. Whoever hauled that to the scrap yard really missed the boat; if they had hauled it to the International in Glendale last June, they could have come away with a few hundred bucks jingling in their jeans.

      Excellent. 'No way should this truck have been baled.

      Was it Hank Williams Jr. or ??? who said it was good to have friends in low places?

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

              I've never restored much worse but, there's certainly a lot there to work with. Glad it's been saved.

                      A scrap yard doesn't qualify as a "low place." At one time, every single occupant of the box seats at Severance Hall could tell you, offhand, that day's bid and close on scrap iron. It's the blue hypocycloid on the Steeler logo. IIRC, the other two stand for muscle and blood.

                        For some reason I'm thinking of Hank Williams, Jr.'s..."Its a family tradition!" after reading BP's remark!
