Like this 1948 Chevy Stylemaster 2 Door Sedan, saved from the a guy that was going to scrap it because it was started by his grandfather and passed away before he finished it... *LINK*

It sit in a barn for 20 years, was striped of it's engine and transmission by the builder brother and about 6 year ago given to the builders grandson. It had bondo 3/4 to 1 inch thick on the roof. he kid striped every part he could remove and lost most of the hardware to reassemble it. I have had for about 5 years, it made it into my shop earlier this year. I have remove the mud pie off the roof and heated and straighten as many of the bad places where he welded the roof pieces back to gather. Top is in primer now, working on repair to the frame now. Hope to have it going by the end of the year.
It will end up being a Rat Rod when done.
