    I was

    thinking the same as Vall. I really like that fastback just not sure about it as a gasser; but who knows, it could look absolutely killer also.

    I am really liking the business coupe. Love the longer trunk.

    Wow being in the rust belt you have a lot of looking around to do to find some thing solid....witch in the long run will save you time and money if you need to go out of state to find a solid body... may be worth the shipping hassle...I hate rust..and latent salt deposits that eat away for ever

    I’m with Vall on the fastbacks. With the right rake and axle location it may work great. It reminds me of tony’s Studebaker.
    Speaking of which will be the July feature car on our calendar starting Monday.

    Just my opinion, but I like a fastback better than a big ol' business coupe trunk. An example:

    Black with flames. It’s so classic. Flames actually look good on there.

    I guess I could go either way with condition making my decision.

    yea, maybe I should expand my search a little. There is a guy trying to foist off a rusty beater of a 51 for 3500. Fastbacks are nowhere to be seen around here.

    I wouldn't expand the search so far that you can't rent a car trailer and go get it yourself. First issue is taking the seller's supplied pictures, or word about condition. Second issue is the sheer cost of shipping these days. It could easily cost you much more than what basic rust repair costs, and it could turn out where you paid shipping and still had to do rust repair. That would be a real double loss situation.
    I'd stay within a day's drive to buy a car and that way you can still get lots of pictures and talk to the seller. Then once you're satisfied grab a trailer and truck and go look at it. If it's as advertised you can load it up and haul it home.
