Default Re: Hey Fellas... Some Clarification...

I'm an old guy who hasn't met too many old Fords he doesn't like. Pretty much all vintage car makes as well as vintage airplanes fall into the same category. I've restored a few model A's, One AA and one BB in my lifetime, but now I have a model '30 model A sedan that is a vintage hot rod. I took great pains to build my car with original Ford components, most of which needed to be restored (by me) and/or resurrected from the dead pile. My car has fewer than 30 parts that are not pre '48, and most of those are scheduled to be replaced with vintage pieces. It's powered by a bone stock '40 Merc on it's first overhaul, a '39 trans and late '40s banjo rear end.

I drive it as often as the weather and my tired body allow.

I have a great deal of respect for vintage cars and those who care for them.

I grew up in the body/paint trade and I do absolutely as much of my own work as I can, in my one backyard shop.

There are few pictures in an album on my profile page.... Do I need to run away from here as fast as I can, or can I stick around and learn (and maybe share some info, too).....??
