Re: misleading ads on the barn

Add the sellers ignorance. But been sucker a few times, not on the barn, with NOS boxes with aftermarket parts. Small stuff though. Buyer beware as they say.

Its a street/rat rod world, we are just living in it. Sorry to hear it. Maybe someone will pick up the pieces.

Re: Bodywork on Fender
