Hi new member wanted to say hi

Hey just wanted to say hi this is the first truck website ive been on. Me and the old man usually retore classic mustangs but we got a f100 for cheap and couldnt pass it up. Go to school at minnesota state mankato, parents live in farmington, but grew up in oakdale woodbury area. I guess the best way to see what im all about is with pics ill add a few of the current projects we have and some of our cars that are done.

This is my baby been in the family for 25 years or so parents sold it to me not to long ago

Ya once we get her done it will be a great driver the police car was totaled with only 40k on it. The engine whole front suspension and rear was used off of it so it rides like a dream. It will be a neat truck when its done.

[IMG]Click the image to open in full size.[/IMG]

This is the engine in my 65 nothing special yet doing everything else like fuel system, suspension, rear, cooling ect before doing an engine alot of this stuff is done this is an old pic.
Click the image to open in full size.

And i almost forgot the first car i started restoring when i was 15 parents gave it to me as they got it for cheap and it was rust free. In this pic i just finished the body work and it has a bbf 390 with c6. Since then i put a full shelby body kit on it, 390 is comming out for a fuel injected 393w altho 390 is still in it. I havent seen this car in 5 years tho. Joined the army and it went to storage up north and no time or money for it right now. So she has just been sitting. Wish i had pics of it with the 67 shelby body kit but i never get a chance to go get the car.

Well if he ever wants to part ways with it let me know, I might be interested. Wife wants a car for the back to the 50's.......I have a 63 caddy but if I get it done I am afraid she will hit the garage trying to park it inside. Don't laugh she has hit the garage with every car she has own, LOL... That one would fit better in the garage.....

I cant blame her 63 caddy is a boat good looking car tho. Idk if he would ever sell it he loves his odd cars. He had a 63 ranchro that was all custom think it won the world of wheels the guy saw how much he loved it and gave it to him for dirt cheap. Well that car got rear ended on the day of my other brother wedding dead stop lady was going 45. Hit him so hard pushed the engine through the rad and bent the metal behind the seat around him.
Here is a pic of him and the ranchero was a sexy car

Here is that falcon before he tore it apart we did this because we were doing a 302 swap and the passangers quarter was replaced long ago and used a coupe quarter was not done well.
