Subject: The toughest Ford EVER


I think I just met the reincarnation of Henry Ford.  While at my dealer
pickin up a dipstick for my 73 F-250 project, up pulls a black Super Duty
F-350 Crewcab 4x4.  Only this sucker had 2 live rear axles!  I got to talkin
with him, this truck is totally custom.  Made his own frame, to which he hung
a dana 60 front in the convention manner, but the rears are set up just like
a big rig, with huge control arms and airbags.  Made his own power splitter,
including having custom gears made, so that both axles were live.  Both rear
axles are also sporting duals, which makes for one heck of a look.  Basically
this is (according to him) the truck dodge got the idea from to build the
T-Rexx.  This thing was flat awesome.  Tilt bed, so he can show off the
goodies, the running boards were custom made to be his fuel tanks, but they
are still filled via the door on the bed by way of a slip joint, and some
ingenious lever action.  Im going tomorrow to take some pics of it, And with
his permission, Im gonna send em to Ken to be posted.  If any of you read
Truck Trends, it was featured in the Feb issue last year.  Man I cant stop
thinkin about this truck.  The power plant is a power stroke V-8 thats been
boosted by Banks.  Said with his huge 5th wheel (I saw a pic, its got 4
axles!) hes sittin at just under 34,000 lbs, and can still hit 105 on flat
ground.  without the trailer he said it'd do about 135.   Anyone thats
interested, I'll email you these pics when I get him tomorrow, just lemme
know, I'll put ya on a list.  This is one Truck you dont wanna miss!

Subject: FTE ADMIN: Change to classifieds


As many of your are aware "dot com" companies have been hit
hard in the last few months.  FTE is now feeling the
affects.  Our ad revenues through our reseller have taken
a serious hit and have plunged by 80%.  FTE is taking steps
to insulate itself from the advertising slowdown.

Many of you have enjoyed the use of our bandwidth with free
classifieds.  As is the case with many web sites, the free
lunch is over.  Our classifieds use a significant amount of
bandwidth per month and we >>HAVE to come up with new revenue
sources in order to keep FTE operational.  Thus, we're
implementing a >>reasonable fee<< for placing an ad.

The classified ads will now be $4.00 for up to 45 days plus
an additional $1.00 for each additional category you place it
in.  After placing your ad you will be given a link to a page
on our secure server to pay for the ad.

Our classifieds have over 75,000 visitors per month and this
number grows every month. $4.00 for that kind of exposure
represents a tremendous value.  Anyone who thinks $4.00 is
too much to pay ought to consider the thousands I've shelled
out to keep the site operational and the need to continue to
keep the site going.

Thank you for your understanding as we implement this changes.
It's unavoidable given the current economic climate.

Have you checked you Oxygen sensor? I had an '89 with the 302 that had the
same problem, but it was just a bad O2 sensor. When I replaced that it fixed
the problem.

A couple of weeks ago the message board guidelines were
overhauled.  They have worked out well and they leave
little gray areas as opposed to the old guidelines.
Because of their success, the mailing list guidelines
have been brought in sync with the message board
guidelines.

Please read the new guidelines at:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/faq.html

These are the new Terms Of Service the lists will be
operating under.  If you do not agree with them, please

Subject: '61 Unibody for sale


Hi to all fellow FTE'rs

    For the last several months when I go out to visit my folks, I have seen
a '61 Ford F100 Unibody sitting in someone's driveway. This last weekend, it
had a for sale sign on it.  I couldn't resist stopping to check it out. The
owner, Brian, turns out to be the manager of the local bow tie dealer's body
shop. He has a '26 'T' in the garage and is in the middle of redoing his
wife's C'm'ro and the Ford is one to many projects. (According to his wife,
that is.)

    Anyway, he gave me to $.10 tour, and it looks pretty good. Don't get me
wrong, it still needs work, but he has already done a lot of the body work.
It still has the 292 Y-block in it, and it started right up and ran with 60
lb. of oil pressure. Everything seems to be there, & he said there were some
extra parts as well.

    Now for the good part. He only wants $800.00 for it. I would have bought
it just on spec., but I am getting laid off from my job at the end of the
month and don't dare spend any money right now. (As if I had any to spend
anyway)

    The truck is located about 20 miles west of Portland, Or. Telephone
number
is: 503-357-4163.

    I have no connection with the seller, and I can't buy it myself, but I
believe it would make someone a great project, and it's really priced right.
