Hello Bluehawk and rywegh.........I live in western Ky near Ky lake in Grand Rivers, although I grew up in Madisonville KY. I have messed around with all types of Ford vehicles since I got out of high school in '79. My first truck was a '75 F100 4x2 with a 390. After that I got a '71 Cougar with a Cleveland (which I still have and awaiting restoration), then had various other Ford powered vehicles. I got to running around with a drag racing crowd and completely restored a '66 Fairlane and even stuffed a 429 in it. I almost had the car done, things changed and I eventually sold the body, but was smart enough to keep the engine and glad I did. Right now, a buddie of mine got me interested in mudracing a couple of years ago and since I already had a '78 4x4 I was using as a work truck, the project began. I built a 400 for it and race when I have time. I also have a Honda VTX 1800 motorcycle that shares time with the truck.
I like the pic of your truck Bluehawk, I have been looking around a bit at 250's myself.
Just found this chapter whilst surfing today. Good to find some local posters. I live in western KY close to deerhunter3814.
Hello to deerhunter3814.....Haven't seen you since the track last summer. Looks like you are a building "bigboy" for this summer. Remember the yellow and green '78???? Thats me.
How are you doing?
We wondered what happen to you the last few races of last year, after you bought some tires.
How did you nail me down? I do not have a gallery.
They are going to have races again this year, I will let you know thru here when they start.
Hey guys, mudcobra has one great looking 78, matter of fact if it were mine I would be hard pressed to put it off road at all. He was top of the class in looks. That includes body and engine both.
Glad to hear from you.
I work afternoons untill the end of May (I am off this week for my daughters surgery) but I am off weekends, maybe you can swing by and I'LL show you what I am up to for this year. Send me a PM and will get in touch.
