The best thing out of this is that now you know what to look for when buying a squarebird and what to avoid. You should at least get your money back on the '58 so no harm done. There are probably more reasonably priced squarebirds around now than at any time in the last 20 years. I'm sure you'll find one.

Like Arnold said in the Terminator movies: "I'll be back..."

Today was a bittersweet day. I知 sad to see the 58, a car that I had high hopes for go, but I知 happy that she is going to a new home that will give her the attention she deserves. She痴 headed for Houston, TX and the new owner is very excited to have her.

It's amazing to me how many people in the Southwest buy old cars from the Northeast. I don't think they have any idea what they are getting into.

In this case the buyer was made well aware of the condition. Considering what he paid for the car and that he will be doing the metal fabrication himself, I think it値l work out well for him in the end.

I've bought enough squarebirds over the years to know that the rust that's visible to the naked eye is at least twice as bad when you start digging into it. I'm glad he can do the work himself because if he had to pay someone it would be more than the car is worth.

I came across this video on youtube. Looks like my old '58 ended up in Finland and the new owner has brought her back to life.

Hi Marcelo! That is great! It sounded pretty good too! Do you know if he is a member of our Forum? If not, if you know how to contact him, please let him know about us and that we can help him troubleshoot and restore her.
