the Rudy Rodriguez "Lost" merc is officially for it!

I'm just not gonna get around to finishing this car any time soon. I have way too many other projects on my plate, and not much time to work on my own stuff anymore. I'm super bummed though cause I always wanted a '40 Merc, and this ones off to a great start. This was originally owned and chopped by Rudy Rodriguez, who just debuted the famous Nachtfalter Merc at the GNRS. He told me this chop is basically identical to that one other than the sail panels(B Pillars) being longer. The body is in very good shape, needing only minor rust repair, and the chassis is all original, with the block being removed from between the rear spring and crossmember to lower it a little. Other than that, stock. No motor or trans, but I have a '40 ford flathead I will include for a good price if the buyer is interested. Correct Merc banjo rear with nice gearing, juice brakes etc.,lots of parts included in the sale. I have the pink slip that still has Rudy's signature on it. VIN numbers match the title, but not currently registered. please email or call(805)644-1959 for more info. I have no problem helping with shipping, at your expense.

heres a pic of the car as Rudy was chopping it:

PS-theres still 2 brass and 1 aluminum CV cover available on EBAY, same prices as the webstore. just search for OLD GOLD GARAGE

"Dome" CV carb tops are finally here...

Now available at the OldGoldGarageCo webstore!...available in polished aluminum, polished brass, or cast look brass

These will fit any Harley with a Kehin CV carb, and installs in just a few minutes with a screwdriver. It will not affect the performance of the carb in any way.

kick my ass, go ahead!

the Khoury Coupe made it's debut at the GNRS. I got sick as a mutherfucker and started hallucinating in my truck on Sunday, and overall it was an awesome and exhausting experience. I don't recommend it to anyone. But most of you already knew that! I tried taking pics with my iPhone, but they sucked, so I stole this one from my friend Brian's blog...I think next year I will just be a spectator, or maybe build a bike instead...

Do Unto Others...

....Then Split!
