Well that is a tragedy. But I am sure someone will still want those fenders.

My God that is in Flint. I may go try to find it.  I may even but it for a few bucks. I could still use the chrome. I wonder what under the good looks like.

Auto correct really sucks. I hate when it replaces words.

I said cry over not get over.

Rat rod.  On the tv shows they would clear coat it and ask $50k for it.

Well. Take your pick. Do you want to talk some sense into me. Or do you want to be an enabler.

How much different would this be from what I am doing on my Fleetwood. Many convertible parts are reproduced. So some would be easier to get then my Fleetwood.

And as I am going to spend $40-50,000 on my Fleetwood and it will be a $20,000 car.

If I spend $50-60,000 on an Eldorado it could be a $60,000 car. It actually makes more sense.

agree with your delima

many eldo parts are specific and are made from un obtanium
seeing how the car is probably not a clean title now, it will always be worth less

once metal has been in a fire,i believe it is damn near impossible to get paint  to adhere properly
heat does something to the metal

It to far gone. The chrome is no good.  The fire department use foam that ruins the chrome.
