Personally I could care less what people do with their car or truck, after all it is theirs. For me this site is more about helping others solve problems and looking around for parts. I do not see why there is a problem if someone has a modified car or truck, its not that big of a deal.

Where is Jalopy Journal? And there is stock, & mild customs. My 53 Merc Monterey is 100% original except the original hub caps are in trunk it sports beauty rings & baby moons. & it has a 6 volt elec fuel pump. Then my 12 volt 52 Merc Sports Coupe went a step further with offenhauser/Strombergs/fenton & of course AIR CONDITIONING. It has lakers, skirts none of which are stock. Oh both have fuzzy dice too)

I wish I could find a site dedicated to LATE flat head Fords/Mercs - I rarely see much here related to my 52 & 53 Mercs,I suppose it is because they are the LAST years in the "early" thread, & too "flat" for the 54 & up thread

I think this is great. I do not have any objections of what people have have posted. It's a ford sight. Don't see any problems.At one time the Early Ford V8 only wanted fords up to 1940. It was a big fight to go to 1953.
Lets not have the same type of problem here. I like stocker's and modified cars

I think you need to have a basic guiding, philosophy or reference point--and for Ford Barn that seems to be stock vehicles--and I'm good with that. However, always good to have a little wiggle room or flexibility--and I'm good with that, too. Problem is where to draw the line and I doubt that anybody has the ultimate answer. But when push comes to shove I hope the emphasis continues to be with the stock vehicle.

I can respect the “purists” but I think all of us are guilty of blurring the lines. I’m a newcomer but have lurked for a very long time. The insights/knowledge base here and ideas presented are what makes this place great and provide much inspiration.

That being said our ride (49 Ford) never was stock. We brought it home lowered, louvered and flamed as it would have been in 1955. Being children of the ‘50s we wanted this car but never could have afforded it. It was up to us to finish it mechanically and the interior. We wanted a “traditional” hot rod keeping the flatty but being air conditioned and running all day down the road at 70 miles an hour in 105-110 degree days in Nevada. Quite a chore for a flatty but it can be done, thankx to the members here.

Our hobby and our vision is ever evolving; it would be a shame for this place to become a refuge for purists only.

My apologies,Ryan.I assume that my post was deemed inappropriate and pulled off the barn.This was concerning possible sale of my 47 merc,and I was seeking advice to avoid taking too much space on swap meet,and had hoped for advice on pricing.I'll try to find another approach.Again,my apology.

We're all flathead lovers here weather modified or stock. We post here for help and advice. If there is input to be given please share. We're all purists in one way or another, weather stocker or a traditionally built flathead with the correct pieces. I like and respect them both. If someone needs advice and you have input...share your knowledge.
