Hi, guys. I'm new to the site, but not new to SoCal. I am a Mississippi transplant via the US Navy! I will be picking up my grandfather's 1948 Ford F1 in a few weeks and I will be modifying it to a rat rod truck....aka new engine/tranny/rearend/chop and drop. I will be needing an unbelieveable amount of advice, so I look forward to blogging with you all! Thanks again.
