Not if he does it right... Hey honey, No one wants to buy the T-bird... And I have to rebuild the engine in the truck so I found another truck I'm going to put the motor from the t-bird into and drive that around until I can rebuild the motor in the truck... Yes, Honey, I'm getting rid of the car....

DON'T DO IT!!

There's no sound like a flathead.

Buy a couple more old trucks. Then, you can put a modern engine in one of them.

At least, that's what I'm doing.

thunderbird tatses like overcooked ford grease ! tom noone can get me in trouble as i can do that quite well myself .scott i have come to my senses i am not going to do it too the 53 as i do love my flatty , and no it doesnt need a rebuild , it's a factory rebuild and i just picked up a few ancient goodies for it ............ i think the plan is another truck body as i got a couple of good legal documents for 55's . i can start the alterations on the old frame me thinks and drive the bird for awhile longer { just for another month or so when the customline is up and running with new exhaust then off too the butcher shop !!!!!!!!! }so now i'm off too the classifieds for a look see for a cab and front clip , bed etc. or a whole truck if its really cheap . i know the chop top 55 on my end of town is still sitting going to hades maybe i can talk him out of it again without his wife's interference ...................... though still i love the idea of my bessie hauling ARSE !!!!!!!!! AND MY OLD 55 IS STILL SITTING UNFINISHED IN THE GARAGE OF THE GUY WHO GOT IT FROM TWISE this is till i get too thinking again ...................
