Subject: Ford trucks in the movies

Since I seem to only have eyes for the 56's Here's my list of trucks in the movies. Last action Hero has a beautiful red 56 that gets wrecked. In the beginning scenes of Twister there's a used car lot with a 56 on it. And in Sniper there's a 56 Truck on the enemy base. Hey my brother tells me that Timmy's Father on Lassie drove a 56 Ford? I only remember the one ton Chevy.

That 56 in Last Action Hero was awesome!! I almost cried when they
crashed it through the window or what ever it was. It didn't take the
corners very well, lots of body roll, but still, I hope it was all
fiberglass, things like that should be illeagal. I know it's off
subject a little, but in the movie Vannishing Point, there is a guy
driving a Charger or something and then they crash it at then end. Too
bad that they don't know what these things are worth today!
Just my 2 cents

There was someone who listed their own webb site for
1950 model F-1's about 2-3 weeks ago did anyone happen
to save that address. I accidently deleted mine but the
site was very interesting with the history and all the
pictures. I would also like to get the phone # to EZ
wiring that someone says is real good and cheap.

Thanks

Glenn,
It's the February Issue. The article calls the truck Defiant '57.
It does look good.

Randy,
Auto Body Specialties (1-888-277-1960) also has your battery tray. I
checked this morning while there buying some parts.

Subject: ADMIN: Please trim those replies.

Once again, I'm asking that FTE list members trim replies.
Not to single anyone out (because many people do it), but
as an example:

Pete had 3 list footers at the bottom of his posting and
Mike's post had those 3, plus his message, plus his prior
message all in ONE posting. It gets hard to read and in
the long run inflates the digest size, which increases
storage space on the server, which then increases archive
search times (ie, its an inconvenience for everyone using
the archives) and server bandwidth usage increases.

Not only is this mail list Netiquette, it also lowers our
costs. At our bandwidth levels there isn't any such thing
as a $19/month all you can eat account. Our bandwidth
fees alone are several hundred/month in addition to the
server rental and maintenance fees.

I'm not coming down on anyone, I just want those who
aren't aware of it to know before it becomes too common.

Subject: Fords go to Hollywood

I hate to admit I watch stuff like this, but there was a nice '60 F-100 in
The Parent Trap. Green or blue as I remember.

Tim, I have that Classic Trucks issue. It was a motivation for me too.
There was another '60, red, in either Classic Trucks or Custom Classic
Trucks. I have both issues, but couldn't lay my hands on either quickly.
That made two featured in four year's count. There were two or three
teaser mini-photos, too, I guess, but I'm only counting features. I've
dropped my subscriptions to both magazines. I'll come back when they wake
up. It also annoys me how magazine articles underestimate the cost of a
given featured project. Oh, well! That's a whole 'nother topic.

I have a '52 F3 with a Marmon-Herrington 4X4 conversion.
Does anybody know where I can get some documentation on this?
Service/operator manual? anything?

Scott,

The car in "Vanishing Point" is a Dodge Challenger. Don't feel so bad,
though. If you watch carefully at the end, the car that actually crashes
into the dozer is a white Camaro. No Challengers were injured.

I hope that I don't start another one of those extremely lengthy discussions
about Ford should stay Ford. Here goes.... I would like to know if anyone
has installed a big block Chrysler, ie: 440, into thier '53-'56 F-100. If
so, what must I watch out for during the installation? I plan on using the
crosssmember from Gibbons Fiberglass which would utilize the front end
components from a large Mopar. Any help would be beneficial. I am sure that
I am not the only one out there that has contimplated doing a swap like
this.
