a friend Mike and I went to check out
one of the most beat up 30 coupe bodies I'd ever seen.
full of hot rod projects.
a 40's pickup with a Mercedes AMG running gear,
and other chit I don't remember.
One of the reasons I take pics.
and he was close enough
that I could drop by and check on progress.
he died of an accidental gun accident.
The details are way too crazy.
Well fast forward to now.
He says,"I gotta 40 just like that!"
"Yeah, right", I'm thinking,
probably a Plymouth or old Volvo.
I realize he bought some of the dead guys cars!
big block chevy with a 5 speed wedged in.
Fenderwell headers, 9" rear, black tuck'n'roll...
A real 60's sleeper.
The perfect family wagon.
but this was way more bad ass.
I'll get some front shots once he gets it running.
Cool car, bummer story!
