Yeah. I always hate to see one go. My kids acutually cried when the 56 wagon left and that hurt me more. I always get attached to my projects even though I know they will be sold. Part of the benifit of building cars on spec is I get to pickem. which means I like the car in the first place and just like it more as it improves. But, it's what I do. And we gotta eat.
On the otherhand...... it is really great to meet the new owner and see the joy on their face. I have met some really neat people and I am glad that I had some part in helping them reach for a dream. I truely believe everyone should own a 55, 56 or 57 Chevy. It's too bad there are not enough to go around.
You know......I loved these cars back when they were worth only $100.
I wish they were still worth only $100............then I could keep them all.
Thanks for the pics. It's always nice to put a face to the name. You do some fine work my friend. My first '55 was painted yellow. I loved that car! And I love yellow on the Tri Fives. Happy Holidays!
