Default Another project goes unfinished....

Well at least I got to drive it around the block once.... A friend of mine heard I was moving. He messaged me about would I be selling the Gasser. I said I really hadnt thought about it and already reserved a car trailer from UHaul. He say, Im gonna come over and talk to you about it. He came over with another bud and 3 hours later I decided to sell it to him.

I just got it drivable and took it once around the block the other day. Still needed a lot of tweeking but it drove pretty well. I thought I would feel bad after making the deal, but....I really dont. Im actually excited to find my next project. I actually enjoy the build more than the finished project.

I think this time Im going to get a muscle car and something not quite as big of a project as some of my past builds.

Meh, your hot broad wants you, not the “stuff”….

Plus, I won! I kinda had a race going on in my head! I got the ‘79 pick up done, before you!

I like gassers, but honestly, their time has passed, most people now wouldn't even know what it is. A nice muscle car that requires less work is a wise decision for you in my view.

It's always better to get rid of stuff rather than hauling it. If your playing house stand back and let her make it a home.

Most folks today dont even know what the term Gasser even means. I found myself explaining it almost every time some one asked me about my build.

The more I think about getting a 60 or 70's muscle car, the more I like the idea. I just dont want to get/build a belly button car like a Camaro or Mustang. Im going to go for something different and not necessarily a muscle car. Maybe something like a 67 Buick Wildcat.

Early Skylark, or maybe a Pontiac T37... I bet even GTO guy is unfamiliar with that one.

I'll be the first to admit, that even though I am 60 years old, the first time you said you were getting a "gasser", I had no idea what that meant, and googled it.
