lol, it sounds like a definitely scored a touch down here, by creating this Truthful but painful thread. As far as the savagecowboys69 inquiry goes, what i decided is to use both in family while at same time trying to sell them back out j/as i got them. If however i wont sell it till summer and will have time to mess around, i will jump on it and will restore it to my best ability, since i already have a little bit of experience in it, its j/that i dont want to mess around w/another car again. The projects are fun, but time and money consuming and pain in *** sometimes, as i dont have no lift other them jacks in garage and not much of a clearance to work under, however as i mentioned earlier, i did spend half a year on slow time wise restoration of my Lincoln Mark VII, and heres some pics of its undercarriage below:
heres some shots before:

cut the peace out w/plazma or dremel i guess if theres no plasma which what i was doing, in thin places that is. then fabricate replacement, pref from zinc coated or galvanized steel and tap weld it. few dots then gring, then few more then grind again, so on till it filled in, then primer and its fixed, lol. the point job, i guess a different story. haha

this is a good reminder...look before you buy. Back when I use to buy old cars looking for rust was a must. I even sold 2 frames for 60'* Pontiacs because they would rust out in the back "dogleg". So yeah when ever I buy a car I allways look for rust. I am no body-man and I don't want to play on at home.
