First of all, thank you for the sacrifices that you have made and are undoubtedly still making for our country. The history of that truck sounds more like layers found in an archeological dig. Hope things are continuing to go well for you and your family. MUSTACHE RIDES license plate.....What year is that from?......I'd say your wife is pretty cool not to sweat you about that..

Thank you

Thank you for service to our still great nation. I am amazed at some of the earlier hot rodders imagination. This was before they had mass communications to know exactly what others were doing. I applaude your grandfather and dad for instilling their values, love of the hotrods, and knowledge to be passed onto to another generation. My nine year old grand daughter has been helping me on our build of a 1953 Ford truck. She has her own small paint gun and helped me prime and paint the chassis. We are working on the fenders and hood at the moment. I wish you great success and memories as you build your truck again. psmith1951

I was hoping to post some pictures of some smokey burnouts in front of the house or just plain old me and the boy driving the hell out of the truck....BUT.... always a big ole but in there....

The ole 427 started suddenly running very warm. Im sure alot of it is the 97 degree temp here right now but ive never had an issue controlling the temps before. So today i ripped the water neck off. flushed the motor and radiator, as well as threw in a new thermostat. hopefully tomorrow i can get her filled up and the problem is subsided.

stay tuned...
