Not so much but for me it is. I watch a lot of youtube where they restore or rebuild wreck cars. One name keeps coming up J&J auto wrecking in Ohio. They don't tell when they buy the parts how much they pay. I pulled their eBay site up and one headlight for a Cadillac was on eBay for $4200. Wow. One site I watch they bought a wrecked Lamborgini for parts at $35,000 to fix their other Lamborgini. All this to say that in the future it will become harder to restore our old trucks and cars.

That is why the rat rod culture is booming.

Sure is, I have an old Raliegh bicycle that was rusty and I pin striped then lightly sanded and satin coated it, has bright red wheels. I call it Rat Bike 3. The two previous ones were stolen! When I go to shows with our 51-3100 I have it in the back. Rat Rods are getting pretty big here but because this is Central Florida most of the old trucks have to shoveled up and put on a trailer.

Currently making 1954 3100 better than new
