Hey all, chilly as heck today so I thought i would go into the garage and work on the '49 and by the end of the day ended up having all the front sheet metal hung... and it looks great. Its amazing what a 16 year old kid and his 15 year old friend can do in a day when they put there heads together!!!
Pics are in my gallery!!! check it out.
And yesterday when out to concord NH and picked up my new winter truck. A 1994 F-150, 4X4, 5 speed with 35,500 original miles!!!!
THANK GOD YOUR 94 ISN'T BLUE!!!! I just bought myself a BLUE(God no, not another blue truck!!!) 1994 F250 XL 4x4 with a ZF5!!!! and a 351W and it has 1 ton front springs...1000 bucks...I gotta drop the oil pan and change that, windshield, and passenger window. All new brakes, radiator...has a couple usual rust spots but I don't care, the fact that it is a ZF5 made me giddier than don and sean alone in a room with a 20 foot high by 60 foot wide cheescake...(sorry boys, just another harmless dig from the fat kid)
Saw the youtube vid of the 49' you had better leave that flat 6 in there. Get a supercharger for it, the old flat sixes take it very well...that and turbos, put the carb in a pressurized intake box and you're good to go...hell, see if you can mount 6 Mikuni spigot mount sled carbs to the side of that bad boy. Matter of fact, Kaiser/****** had a car called the Darrin I believe that had a flat 6 with a belt driven mccullough supercharger. I am serious though, leave the 6, you don't see many flat sixes, they're all either SBC's SBF's or Ford Flattie V8's. Hell go rat rod with it and paint it OD green (army green that is). I know...I am nuts...
