    Hey, Eric...

    here's a chance to own a classic. One of our members is moving to VA, and he's going to sell his T.



    Real steel body, 327 with double-hump heads. Just what you need to keep you off those motorcycles!

    What's the story with the "Gold Crown" air freshener on the bumper?

    I'm guessing it's from a "Seagram's 7" commercial display somewhere. It was on the car when my friend bought it.

    Mike says it's got a real Model T steel chassis; just modified into a rod!

    Nice!

    But (says my conscience) I must get my Trans-Am sprayed (properly) before I buy another old car. The longer I wait, the more expensive it's going to get - and the car deserves to be brought back to its former glory. It's still presentable enough, but I know I've passed a Rubicon of sorts because when my wife opened the (heavy) passenger side door one day this summer and it got away from her, she ended up putting a good-sized ding in it - and I didn't even get mad.

    Just another imperfection... sigh...!

    The car was bought out of CA, where I suspect it was built sometime in the '70's or possibly even the '60's.

    It has more vallue as a period piece than it does as an actual hot rod. But a 327 with double hump heads hasn't been common for at least 20 years.

    Where did he say that? All I saw was "Real steel body"...

    I didn't say it, and it would be a lie if I did. A T frame does not stand up well to a modern engine.

    If I bought it, I would put a new frame under it, anyway.
