Rare doesn't automatically mean desirable, Like most 50's Chrysler products....It's hideous!

The guy makes his money flipping cars.

Everything else is just marketing/fun.

If I remember Correctly, it was Dual Ghia #1. and Richard and Dennis stumbled upon it while looking at another car. Richard put up a Chunk of the Money, but Dennis paid the bulk, and had the car in HIS collection.

Did you miss the part of the show where he (and his millionaire buddies) buy cars, and flip them at auction, often times for huge profits?

His shop can build some good stuff. And he knows how to find a good deal. Cant blame the guy.

" The guy makes his money flipping cars." he makes money by butchering cars. once he had a 1960 dodge pu. what did he do? he cut the front part of the frame off. put a chevy front on. with a big block chevy. BUT when took it to test he didnt put a posi in rear. ONE black line. the man IS a butcher. and from what i have seen in last 2-3 weeks he doesnt even DO the work.

I liked the Sweptline...

Different strokes, I suppose. The truck was rusting away, now it's being driven.

There seem to be a fair number of buyers who adore his "butchered" cars and trucks.
