And this is kinda where I wanna go with it. Dropped to the dirt first, then a chop, and maybe down the road a big section.

Concepts: 1-2 chop/drop 3-4 chop/drop/section

It ain't much better around here, the vintage stuff just isn't out there. I just got real lucky on this one. It's hard enough finding anything from the 60's. Whats more, it was on craigs list and in the paper for over 2 weeks while I was on vacation. Very little rot , blown motor , solid frame , and ALL the trim - $500. That still leaves me 46 dollars, 12 cents, and a cat eye marble for my budget. I'm happy.
