Re: Offy heads

Could be on new heads like you have. Buying used heads you always have the question if they where milled at some point.

Re: 35 wires, tires and tubes

If you are talking to me CAS. With the 5" chop and being 6'2" 250 it was like a monkey f' a football driving it. Every stop light was a mystery. :) It was a fun ride though, glad I experience it....

Re: Fender welting

I'm glad for the time I was able to access Roy. It was a VERY BIG loss. Roy literally created bolts that were needed for a "stock" build. Some at a loss of money. Big big loss of a ford icon. I...

Re: I'm all dressed up for the dance

I'm "stuck" being that guy that runs a basically stock 36 and 38 ford. Just whom I am. I've heard all the suggestions and add the numbers and cards to my glovebox when I will sell.

Re: 600/16 Tires

Tires are like shoes. Some people like wingtips some like sneakers.


It's a loaded question with no real answer outside what you want.

Re: Is an authentic paint color worth more??

Old PPG chip chart. 28-39. Body and accent colors. The old colors maybe less used and more unique when surrounded by modern colors.
