I spent Saturday loading up the truck and trailer with MORE parts from the barn I bought out a few weeks back. The guy kept giving me more stuff till my trailer was FULL!
I got a pair of rust free 61 ford car fenders, one 60 ford car fender, one 73-79 tuck fender, one 63 fender, one 64 fender, one 66 fairlane fender, and one more I'm not sure but I think its like a 66-68 big ford LTD? ALL the fenders are RUST FREE!
I got three 9" ford rear ends, one rear end for the 50 ford coupe, and a complete 1947 chevy front suspension.
One flat head V8, One 240 or 300 6 cyl,
Seats for the 50 coupes, and then I did some cleanup and took a bunck of scrap metal too!
I think I'm done with this after 8 loads of "JUNK"
Spent most of today unloading

Once schools out 1st of june, I plan on doing ALOT of relaxing. lol
And depending on what does down in the next few weeks, I have 2 project options:
1) There's a decent 1955 olds 88 with a 324 for sale down the street I wouldn't mind tinkering on.
2) Convert the '85 to 4x4.
It doesnt matter to me which one I do, but dad would prefer to do the olds.....too many trucks.

Well, after a short hiatus off here the last week or so:
if gotten the typical head cold a week ago and felt horrible. Was off this past week and got the car put back together and took it TnT last night. Everything is back to normal and working well. Life is good, again, for now.
Back to work monday, wonderful. Hopefully I can "relax" a bit LOL!!!!
Well just got back from a trip south and overseeing my never ending work-load at this ranch. Got a few more trucks and sold 2. I also had a bad deal and had to call in the sheriff. The guy pulled a gun(rifle) and I had to take it off him.......now he is all paid up and the sheriff has let him go. My wife can be a great body-guard....haha
Anyway......SUPERNATIONALS was a great succes for us,and bought some great deals. I also have to ship a frame I sold from 1 of my 56f100s. Lots of grass to cut and glad to be back in Ohio.
My Florida ranch was 91-99 degrees and that is too hot for May,after 51 degrees....haha
My trucks are coming along and hope to hit some local car shows....and Memorial weekend will have alot of friends and family up for the opening of Geneva on the lake....it is awesome this time of year.......Bill
Weather's been nice so I've been driving the crap out of my truck. Been waiting for the police to get after me because of my historical plates but they really do have better things to do. Really, the only folks that hassle me are the gate guards at Wright-Patt. Gets boring standing at the gate checking ID's for a whole shift. Taking off this weekend to Hueston Woods for some quality family time. Wish I could take the dog but alas, they don't allow pets in the cabins. Looking forward to a great summer and I'm at least going to try and make the Hot Rod Power Tour stop at the University of Dayton. Should be some cool cars and trucks there.
Working on my truck is like opening Pandora's Box.
Well, after a longgggggggggggggg winter my first race is this coming weekend. Anyone looking for something to do Saturday(23rd), come out to QuakerCity Raceway in Salem, Ohio. Pretty good show of old style gear jammin race cars. Be there by noon for time trials.
