    Well, Guys, I own another Ford as of this weekend

    What you all think? Down the road, I am thinking it might be nice to install an FE in it?

    Well, Guys, I own another Ford as of this weekend

    What am I thinking?? Lets see! You are gonna need some extra padding underneath your rear end because it is gonna be dragging in the dirt with that thang so low to the ground! I am thinking that you are gonna need some heavy duty soles on your shoes when you brake (ala Fred Flintstone!) so you don't burn the bottoms of your feets! I am thinking that you needed another Ford in your life like I need another hole in my head! I am also thinking that is a pretty cool rod and that you will probably have a lot of fun with it racing against your kids! Who will probably beat you! lmbo...

      PLEASE tell me you're going to toss the frame into the Scrap pile.

        Um, yeah, I know it would go over on there like a brick. I would say http://www.killbillet.com/ is where I will belong.

            Yes, it came with another shifter rod that is about 6 inches longer. In fact that may be it laying on the bench in the background.

            By the way, this ride was built by a Swedish guy that tried to ship it home, apparently Sweden won't allow any cars that have custom frames passage without big dollars to tech it?

                RustyNCa we are going to have to change your handle to "HENRY". That's way too cool but what size are the tires on that rod

                  I love it!!!

                  Questions:

                  * is...that.... the gas tank in the rear above the battery? If so do you go to the corner store and back , maybe?

                  * given the geometry of stick shift I have to wonder if Yao Ming was the previous owner (easily spotted for having been out in it due to the bugs on his teeth) ?

                  Have fun!!

                      Trust me, there is an FE in this car's future..... I already have the edelbrock tri power intake, I can use the strombergs on the FE.

                      Then I would need to find a C4 or C6.

                      I think it would be wicked cool with that old FE big block in it, lumpy cam.

                        No, the factory tank is still functional, which holds about 10 Gals of fuel, that is the tank for the air bags, the compressor is up in the right rear qtr.

                        If any have old vintage looking for stuff, well, I can probably use it on this....
