    I agree. If someone gave me that car, I'd drive the hell out of it. Have some fun. What's the sense in that motor if it's not going to be used? Probably a trailer queen. May as well put it in a glass box so it doesn't get dust on it.

    I actually agree with you 100% Tony , I have several buildings full of cars and not a show car in the bunch. However most of them have made passes down the 1/4 or 18 and are turn key.

    There are many people that have very expensive cars built just for show, and don't plan on driving them much at all, and others who just want to drive a rat rod and do nothing to make it look better. Then there is (us) inbetween these two groups of people that just want to fix a car our own way and enjoy it. This hobby is very versatile and there is room for everyone, so I just don't know why there is this obsession that makes you guys want everyone to like the same thing you like. They spend their own money to build---or have built---what ever they want, so live with it.

    I thought it was good news that the nomad brought such a bid somewhere away from the high rollers that go to the BJ auctions.

    I concur... if everyone liked the same thing this world would be a pretty boring place... I'm all about modernizing older vehicles and introducing newer technologies, but I still appreciate a period correct "hot rod"

    I challenge any of these guys to drive their car 125 miles on a 98 degree day, race it that night, lean on it and drink beer until 2 a.m. in the motel parking lot, attend car show next day and drive it home that night. Been there done that with several of my cars CC Nats, Power Tour, Super Chevy etc.

    If I was ever shopping for a the fastest, coolest new car on the planet, and they wasted money on polished, billet, high dollar hood hinges, I could easily walk right on bye.

    Yes, those hood hinges caught my eye also. Again, they don't go with the flat firewall at all. And yes I know everyone can do what they want to do with their cars, and I have the right, and a trifive group on which I'm allowed to voice my opinion. Just as anyone can voice their opinion about my low budget build that I normally drive more than I work on it.
