Hi All; new boy on the block. been working on iron for many years. bought my first car in 1958. was a 49 ford 4dr with rear engine(motor was in the trunk in pieces). paid $7.00 for it. cost my dad $10.00 to get rid of it, he wasn't very happy. that started a love of cars and p/u trucks. my best friend and I learned how to work on stuff the hard way. shade tree u. hot, cold rain, snow. he got a 49 ford p/u with a junk 6 banger and we changed it to a v8 flat motor best and worst engine ever made. we kept it going with bailing wire, spit, and inspiration. later I got a model A coupe. got it to run barely then bought a 59 plymouth savoy 4dr 6cyc 3spd. $50.00. best bargain was 41ford p/u,$30.00,no motor . found a 47 flat 8 got it running. we bought and sold various cars and trucks. graduated h/s bought a new 67 ford fairlane 500 (junk) traded it for a 69 ply road runner conv. THAT WAS A CAR! marriage, kids, jobs you know. ive had more I will write more later. I have now a 55 dodge coronet 2dr to build soon and would like to find a 67 or 68 chevy p/u long bed. later all flathead48
