I was almost stuck under a '57 Bird dashboard...
trying to take it out without removing the steering wheel or column.

yup! just not really working on any cars that fit under here at the moment. I mean I do also have an 1981 F250 but I usually go to another corner of the web for those issues, and my new-to-me Datsun 280 isn't even remotely close

Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!

Hopefully not. Nobody posted for a couple of days so I thought I'd try to stir up some activity with a weak attempt at humor.

Hmm....could be , as a lot of them that I've seen over there (on HAMB ) have at least a few mods made to them .
I have been a hotrodder for about 50 yrs. now , so I personally don't have any problem w/that !
However , I believe that there is still a large population of late V8 Ford owners out there w/mostly stock vehicles . So where are they ? Do they not feel comfortable here ? Sure wish that more late V8ers would come aboured !

We got 8 inches of snow last night. Been busy with that. I got the t-Bird on the rack going to replace the gas tank some day when its warmer. No heat in the big garage. Ben plowing snow today.

We just got crapped on with 36" of snow. I was scared of getting stuck with my 87 Chevy plow truck. Driveway is a hill so I aimed it to where I thought the driveway and gave it hell.Couldnt see for shit but I made it. Hardest part was walking out to the barn with snow up to my ass!

I live in western PA, north of Old Redneck and Bob/PA. We had about ten inches of snow. I found a garbage truck blocking the end of my driveway this morning. The truck got off to the side and stuck in the ditch. I drove through the yard and around the house, through a neighbor's yard, and into another neighbor's driveway so I could get around the garbage truck and go to work. Of course that was through deep snow, and was UPHILL BOTH WAYS!

I don't envy you guys up north. It's been getting down into the 20s at night here and we had about 3/4" of snow a couple of weeks ago but it didn't stick to the pavement and was all gone a day later. I'm as far north as I care to be.
