I started making my own pdr tools.  made the fog board and now I'm starting to shape the rods.  don't really have time though to learn the pdr but I was interested for about 2 weeks. lol

A real piece of history wasted for the owners short term pleasure.   Congrats on cutting the value of the car in half, let alone an irreplaceable piece of history.   Regardless of the circumstances,  cutting that car is completely irresponsible.

i agree with you, dont get me wrong... but.. i believe i summarize mostly everyone's opinion by saying, he is still a blooming idiot.  if he has this much money, he can find any other car and "fack/hack" it up the way he wants, but to do it to this car is just blasphemy.

i, for one, will honestly not view this thread for updates because i dont think he is making the car better, but rather he is ruining it.  no sense looking for updates on a car that is getting screwed up.  not dogging on you man, but the dude is a little off kilter.

"His car, his money" is not mutually exclusive with "he's a fucking idiot."

For the record, I'm not in the "mostly everyone" crowd.  That is not my opinion. Bring on the updates. Can't wait to see this bad boy done.  2thumbs

All I can say is what I've been saying all along... It's his car, his $$... In the end, his decision.. More power to him for doing what he wants with it  

I stopped by Jon's shop tonight to talk to him about a few things...  And we got to talking about this car...

His feelings are it's his car, he can do whatever he wants with it.. He asked the owner if it's REALLY what he wanted done and if he knew what he was doing.. The owner replied "I've had this for 42 years and this is what I want". Jon explained everything that had to be cut and moved...Jon told him to sell it like it is (factory) and buy any car you want and race tomorrow with it...

So in the end, it's something the owner went into with his eyes open wide...

As for the post above.. it is a real car. Jim Reid (who built my motor) is the guy who put the 43 miles on it back in 1967. It was bought new from Hall Motors in Brockton, MA. It was a factory Hemi 4-speed Belvedere 1, otherwise known as the mule car...Radio delete.. Heat delete... Jim and his brother Tom raced it in '67 and sold it at the end of the year , to another guy in Central Mass, who pulled the entire drivetrain out. The CURRENT owner bought the body, as you see it for $300.  It even has the original metal hood scoop...

For the record, the guy who owns this is not rich.. He's a regular working stiff like the rest of us... He put his kids through college.. Did his time.. And this is his dream car.

My hat's off to him for living his dream.

Any one who thinks the car is being "hacked" should really go see the quality of the work that's being done and decide for themselves...

Hey guys, I bought a painting!

I made some "modifications."  People told me not to, but they don't own it, and I figure, hey, it's my painting.

But its not. When I finally get around to working on my car I better get permission from the Mopar gods and give them 3 copies of a 5 color plan of how I would like to build MY car. I hope all these purists have the correct hose clamps, oil filter, battery cables, and cam bearings in their own cars, or maybe they are just a bunch of hypocrites. I am going to get some dinner, will it offend anyone if I have lasagna? Or should I have what they want to eat?

You are fundamentally misstating the issue.  It's not whether your car per se is correct, it's whether the truly rare, historical ones are.  Just like I don't care whether someone draws a mustache on a five year old's art class rendering of the Mona Lisa, I really don't care if someone wants to put a bunch of "pro-touring" stuff on their unspectacular 318 Charger.  Nobody needs "permission from the Mopar gods" for that.  But when you want to mess with a 1 of 1 Hemi Belvedere with 43 original miles, you might as well be painting a mustache on the real Mona Lisa.

I'm not a hypocrite for saying that this car should be correct because my non-R/T, non-numbers matching Charger is not.  But any idiot can see that there's a difference between my car and this Belvedere.

Can you see the difference?
