Get ready to set your clocks AHEAD and throw them freak'n coats back in the closet.
It won't get here quick enough.
UPDATE: Been working steadily on my buddies Tbird(remember that one). We waited 5 weeks for rear wheel tubs. First set was 2 wks and they were damaged. 3 wks later we got what we needed. Last few weeks we've made MAJOR headway in getting them installed. They are pretty much IN, with only a few things to trim up and some painting before we rivet them in for good. We can then start back on the roll cage which has been sitting since Xmas break! The hoop/halo was welded and painted back in Jan, so likely we'll be able to finally weld it in and finish the pipe work in the next couple weeks.
It's been 14 yrs and this is the MOST that has ever been done on the car. Friend is getting happier with every little thing that gets done. Not sure if it will actually see the track this year, but at least it will be drivable!
About one month til all FORD swap meet in Columbus. Anyone making plans yet?
I have so much stuff planned to do when we get warmer weather: yard work (love doing that...seriously), clean out the barn (not so much), and tinker with the truck (my favorite!!!)
When is that swap meet??? I have a brother going to OSU so that would be an awesome thing to do while I'm in the area.

Ya, I'll be scrap'n it come nicer weather. Only problem is the sheetmetal is JUNK with capital "J". The bed is the only nice, solid part on the truck anymore and it's spoken for already. Buddy has a bump trailer he's had for long time and the bed is gone so he wants my bed to replace it with. Mechanical is good, but I'm keeping most of the powertrain. Got some newer pieces, like radiator and power steering box/pump, steering column that could use a new home. Trim is all good for most part, usable, though not perfect. I'll post about it when I start into it.
Well, spent the last 2 1/2 days at home. Got a kick in the gut with the flu. Gawd. The good news is I'm down near 10 lbs!! Haven't been this weight for 15 yrs LOL!!! Just getting back into things again, and might actually eat something today(been 3 days without food, only fluids).
Ya, likely will be there as in years past(when it was Fun Ford Weekend). I wouldn't count on the Tbird making it this year? It might all fall together better as the weather gets warmer, but it's still got a long road ahead.
Got the bike out this afternoon!!!! Yahoooo!
Went to the big Dave/Ed swapmeet at Canton fairgrounds today, picked up some misc. supplies for the garage and came home. It was wayyy too nice to just work, so I got the bike fired up and went cruiz'n. Spent about an hour, made a pit stop at my old neighbors new house(few miles away) then came home as it started to get dusk. Really nice to get some WARM wind in the face after 6 mos. of SNOW. LOTS of bikes out today for sure.
Will be working on Tbird a bit tomorrow, plus start to reassemble motor for race car(put heads back on). Life is good again.
bmuhlbach---I have a 71 F100 and what do you have? I just pulled it out of the barn and put the cover over it. It has a 302 and it is a nice truck.
I have some parts left over but no sheetmetal.
I too cannot wait till spring. I have been south and coming here really is cold. I have to go back soon,and wish it gets warm here by the time I get back.
