Dealford is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Welcome to FTE!
How about starting with a Turbo T Bird? If you could get the whole car, you'd have everything needed to convert.
Use the search feature here & type in "turbo T Bird" & see what comes back. There's been many posts on the subject including best years to get & why.
