I should rephrase the statement about China. I was referring to some of the " fly by night " outfits that are using low quality parts. I speak from experience as I once lived in China. But for what it's worth, I am prone to be " not politically correct " And since I'm not running for a government office, I don't really care so much if I say the politically correct thing. We Americans are caught up in our words, when it should be we do that defines us, not what we say. Was it Abe Lincoln that once said? " You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people, all of the time. Well something like that. I'm sure if I'm wrong someone here will correct me :) We just can't stand letting someone think differently, don't ya know!
The hot rods are not worth much as the veneer is loosening on one, and there is a 5 " scratch on the other. So rather than sell them for a song. I decided to just enjoy them :)
