Everyone Needs Another Rusty Project Car: Look What Newbern Decided To Haul Home With Finnegan’s Other New Acquisitions
I can’t really judge Dave Newbern for hauling a new rusty Tri 5 1957 Chevrolet project home when he was supposed to just be picking up boats on his recent trip west. I mean I’m more of a ’56 guy, but I’m a ’56 guy because I once went looking at a car that turned out crappy and then saw my ’56 Bel Air wagon “Rusty” sitting in front of a farmers old barn. It had no floors, except whatever the seats were still holding onto, and they were being held up by the frame rails. But at $400 I couldn’t pass it up. That car made me, so I can’t argue with falling for another project. Oh, and I’m the guy that falls in love with projects all the time so again, I can’t judge. Oh and did I mention that Finnegan actually bought it for him? Yeah, it was a surprise and I dig it.
If anything it just proves that Newbern, Finnegan and I are brothers from another mother and so it’s good that we don’t live closer to each other. Otherwise things could be really bad.
Check it out, this thing is cool and we can’t wait to see what the boys do with it.
