Soon to be F150 owner.

Hey everyone. I figured I would sign up and see what I can learn here. I will be purchasing my dads 1978 F150 Custom hopefully this weekend. He bought the truck when I was only about 5 or 6. I'm 22 now. He got it as a Christmas present for the family esentially. He has recently started having medical issues and needs help with his other projects. We made a deal that if I could get his 260z running again that he would sell it to me for $300. The engine has been rebuilt and has maybe 1000 miles on it. It's having some carb issues and needs an alignment, but I hope to make it into the project my dad wanted. We were going to paint it black and red, lower it, and do a custom interior with bucket seats. I hope I can get it in my name soon and do a well needed tune-up as well.

That is cool!

Sounds like it will be a win/win for all and you will have a trick looking truck when you are done.

Still haven't gotten the truck in my name yet. Gotta take care of the rent and phone first. Will get that done ASAP though.
