Make sure you take a very good look at the car you are thinking of getting. Look at its overall conditions, like how rusted it is, if it has a full frame, check if the tires are inflated, if is it sunk up to the door in the ground, and also you should bring a magnet with you and you should go around the car with the magnet to see if there is any allot of filler.
It is also very important to ask the owner any questions you want to know about the car. There is going to be a lot of questions you need to ask and don’t hesitate to ask those questions because the answer to those questions could be important to your hot rod restoring process. Hot rod restoration can be tiring, but if you follow these advices then it should be no time before you get the car you want and start restoring it.
