No wars intended, just starting conversation.. BTW..you have a nice website. I too, was in the auto body business, now retired. We were a father and son team, my dad and I. When I got out of Nam in the late '60's, I built a '57 Chevy Canary Yellow E-gaser, and was a Grand National winner at National Speedway in Islip, NY, which is now closed down. I also did some custom work for Joel at Baldwin Motion Performance where I worked on the conversions for their Motion Corvette, Camaro, and Vega. Those were great times and building and racing a car was much more affordable than it is today. Growing up with my father and his six brothers, there was no way I could not love the American automobile. Here's some pics of the rest of my cars and family. As you can see, I'm breaking them in from young. Also, I'm lucky enough to have my wife, who I've been with since I was twelve yrs old, and married now 34 years.. She has always supported my trade and hobby. :flagREBEL said:let's not start any wars ... people buy what they like, and the rich can have it all. I was born chevy in a chryco family. The SSR "roof up" look does it for me.
I beg to differ on that point. With the roots blower (380HP and 450 TQ) the motor has a mile wide powerband. These trucks are not to be trifled with.Joe Schuhriemen said:No comparison to our SSR's...power
I agree Argo, he hasn't reallllly gotten to know a Lightning, :lolJoe Schuhriemen said:Thanks for introducing me to the Lightning. I checked out the web site and it's just a regular pu. No comparison to our SSR's in styling, power or our convertible feature. My impression is, why bother.
