I resent that some Bill guy in an earlier posting felt it necessary to suggest that it would be OK to destroy 5 or ten 1958 Plymouth 4 door sedans, because, as he put it, "no one would miss them that much anyway.".. Well my friends, we have sunk to an all time low. When you feel that it is OK to destroy an antique car because of the number of doors it has, we have definately reached the bottom of the barrel when it comes to being antique auto enthusiasts/restorers... No true auto enthusiast would ever, ever, ever, suggest such a thing. It is quite evident that this "Bill" person is not very well schooled in the preservation of antique cars... A word of advice for the unwise; It is never OK to destroy an old car needlessly because there are a lot of them around (no matter what make it is), or because no one would miss them, or because it is a 4 door sedan, 2 door sedan, 4 door hrdtp, or station wagon etc etc etc... Using a car that is not salvagable for the purpose of parts to restore another is a whole other story, as it is, in and of itself, a form of preservation of a different form.. But, to waste a car just because they aren't popular is pure foolishness, wastefulness, and needlessness, and does nothing to further our fine hobby.... Wow, I never thought that I would ever read such a thing on this website. Or that I would ever have to reply to such foolishness... Shame on us!!!!!!! If we don't stand up for the preservation of these cars... Who will???? Not the Ford or Chevy diehards, that's for sure... There's not many of these Forward Lookers around anymore folks, so lets stand proud together, for our contribution to the preservation/restoration of these fine cars/trucks......Smarten up!
