I'll add a few, just got Vicky road-ready, all of 140 miles on her in the last week or 2. Still "under construction" but driveable. First time on the road (without help!) since I parked her behind Dad's barn in '69:

My 56 Mainline, originally a 6 cyl, now boasting a stroked 302 She is not quite done yet but I have driven it twice to test her legs.

Hydraulic clutch, 5 speed, 9" posi rear, disc brakes, heavy duty sway bar, lots of fun!!

Well I am new here on this forum but I have a 55 Ford Fairlane fordor that is part primer and is a drive as I rebuild . Still has a good running 272 Yblock with a bad leaking Ford O Matic. I am just getting ready to build a 302 and with a T-5 or AOD . Just going with the old skool hotrod theme . No fancy paint jobs but just a good running hotrod like we had in senior hight school ! I will have to get some pictures to post here but nothing pretty to look at right now !

You can use a picture hosting website, like www.photobucket.com I load the pics there then add the links to my posts here.

Thanks

Heres my 55', was going to do an air ride setup, but decided to use the money to do bodywork and get her in paint. Going to go with Aerostar coils and lowering blocks in the rear for now. Going to be running a 301" Y-block with "G" heads that have been cleaned up, Isky RPM-300 cam, C4 w/ a manual valve body and 2500 stall. Had her 13 yrs. since high school. Should be fun when she's done.

This isn't mine as I am more into Model A's, but I have alot of respect for this guy saving the 6 cyl speed with this restoration. Most would have shoved a 289 or 302 into it. Enjoying looking at the pic's, when I can scan some pic's I will post some of the 62 F-100 Shortbox Unidoby I used to have. Should have never sold that truck. Rod
