Re: I'm a turncoat...

I love that thing! I know very little about auto racing but I have heard those hornets gave the big three a run for their money.

Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

Out of storage they all need the funnel. I like an inline elec pump for that. Doesn't it cost like 20 grand for body and paint today? The guy is taking a bath at 38k.
