simplyconnected is on a distinguished road

Congratulations for owning a great old classic Ford! I love all the improvements you've done, too. For now, I can only suggest you go with disk brakes if you drive it around modern light cars.

If you are passionate about owning a beautiful '60 Fairlane 500, this restoration journey will bring you a lot of joy. Put 'finished' pictures around your garage, and keep your eyes on the prize. Eventually, you will get there. When you do, much of yourself will be in that car. Then you can truly call it, 'yours'. There's nothing like it.

Take plenty of pictures along the way. There's no such thing as too many pictures. You will refer back to them and wish you had more angles as you look at details.

By all means, share with us. If you have any questions about anything, please post them. I love your car. - Dave
