I’ve always been a sheet metal geek and in 1985 a friend asked me to help him chop the top on his Nash coupe. The experience stuck with me and by ’87 I was buying old bodies to chop and resell. I finished the last one in 1994 just before moving Winchester and haven’t done one since. That’s me in 1990 busting my ass to finish the new planters in the front yard. The 40’s Chevy Sedan to the left just rolled off the trailer and turned out to be the hardest chop I ever did. By the time I got it sold I realized I had been working for about $2 an hour and never did another sedan. The F100 project was ready to load except for bolting up the tilt front end. My brother worked with me on some of these projects and took a ton of black and whites that were never developed. We talked it up a few days ago and if he can find the film I’ll post what he’s got.
