Sweet!

I seen a 53 F100 at bonneville on the short course, the driver said he was going 100 or 105 can't remember for sure now? Body I don't think had been touched in 57 years and looked it, he was running a built up flatty in it. Not sure what front end he had either?

Bet that was fun, I think I'd be scared to push for half that in any of my trucks. Oh wait, that's assuming they were together and on road Lol.

Awesome!!
I've had my 49 with the stock suspension at 90mph but its only been for a short stretch at the end of the 1/4 miles track.

Once I change out to the 2.78:1 gears I'm hoping to pick up a few MPH

I hope my jag front end will feel comfortable like that! thats when i start thinking about things like "hope these welds hold up!"
