Let me just say how FURIOUS I am. I usually don't loose my cool but I really want to smack this guy! I bought a 66 chevy with the dream of having it rebuilt and given to my hubby as a birthday or anytime I love you present. OMG it had that wonderful old truck smell and I imagined the look of shock and surprise in my hubby's eyes.......sigh:confused:...so a girl can dream big right?? Found a local guy who said he would do it, created a contract to give him a year an a half to do it with us supplying the parts, but all I have heard has been crickets. The time line was to be completed by March of 09, well the truck is still broken down into pieces...potty mouth, potty mouth potty mouth!!!
So we took him to court for breach of contract and now are in negotiations to settle out of court. Now his lawyer says his client:mad: doesnt want to do any work on it at all just give it back as it in all it 1 zillion pieces!!! Potty mouth potty mouth potty mouth. Talk about having your dreams broken down to the core! We swapped our 77 Harley for the work to be done....if y'all could only see me in silent rage mode.....It isn't as if I could just put it back together myself (although that would be a fun project we could work on together) or even take it to another shop because rebuilding old trucks like that in todays economy is truly a luxury....any ideasfrom you folks that know how to do this sort of stuff?

their seems to be something amiss.
he's been paid to perform a function,and all he has to do is return the commodity in a less then delivered state?
I would think that it would be his responsibility to return it to you along with the payment,or fair market value,and the truck returned as delivered.
as it stands now it has a very depreciated value.
I'll give you 3 grand for A rolling 66.
the same 66 in pieces,I got 800 bucks.cause bottom line,your gonna have A 2200 dollar expense in re-mantling it,without upgrading.
when you get it,I'm willing to bet safely,alot of money,that he will not return all the parts,nuts bolts,pieces and brackets.

get ahold of Sarge And Nikita,she's A shop writer,manager work expediter for A body shop,or was,she may be able to halp you.
this is A sucky thing to have happen.

No bueno mamma... I ain't talked to you in a few weeks. Don't be a dang stranger. Got a good bit of juice to swap life complaints with you this week. I miss you, and need your guidance.

That's a real shame:( Almost as shameful as swapping the hog LOL!!j/k Hopefully the situation will get resolved and you can put that 396 in it, right? Or dare I say a real evil crate engine with 500+ cubes breathing fire? Anyway, hope it works out and Guido doesn't have to be called LOL!! Share some pics eventually please:)
