Hey, All!!

Boy am I glad that we didn't get started like that in the chat room! It
was geting pretty busy as it was when I had to bow out Thursday night just
as Peggy logged on to make sure we were all being good.
T-bird Terry, you have given me an idea, so now I would like to ask your
help. What did that Plymouth split bench you put in your Falcon come out
of? One of my Mercuries, and the one I intend to keep (wanna buy a '63
Colony Park?) is a '65 Comet. The problem I have with its stock bench is
that my wife is a less-than-statuesque 4'10", so when she drives the car I
have to put my kneecaps in the glove box.
I've thought about robbing an old Falcon Sprint or Caliente of its bucket
seats, but we kind of LIKE the bench, so a split bench could be a solution
to the problem. The car is a two-door, which may make my question a moot
point, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Of course, since I was one of the flamers on the Chevy engine issue, you
may just want to send me a virtual raspberry....;-)

window. >>
Just for historical accuracy, split windows were only made in '63.
No Ford content whatsoever.

Subject: in a bar

I knew that the Ford / vortec would raise some comments. Good
thing we aren't in a bar drinking, could have been a mess. Ah, the
power of the internet, say what you want, to who you want.

"i hit him hard right between the eyes and he went down but to my surprise,
he come up with a knife and he cut off a piece of my ear. i busted a chair
right across his teeth and we crasched through the wall and into the street,
kickin;' and gougein' in the mud and the blood and the beer"

nuthin i love better than a good arguement!

And what about those Flatheads. My neighbor has one in his 53 F100
nothing sounds better.

Denny I believe that the frame swap that you're talking about would not work.
You must check the width of the wheelbase. The late Fords are usually wider,
maybe a Bronco II.
