Not if he does it right... Hey honey, No one wants to buy the T-bird... And I have to rebuild the engine in the truck so I found another truck I'm going to put the motor from the t-bird into and drive that around until I can rebuild the motor in the truck... Yes, Honey, I'm getting rid of the car....

DON'T DO IT!!

There's no sound like a flathead.

Buy a couple more old trucks. Then, you can put a modern engine in one of them.

At least, that's what I'm doing.

thunderbird tatses like overcooked ford grease ! tom noone can get me in trouble as i can do that quite well myself .scott i have come to my senses i am not going to do it too the 53 as i do love my flatty , and no it doesnt need a rebuild , it's a factory rebuild and i just picked up a few ancient goodies for it ............ i think the plan is another truck body as i got a couple of good legal documents for 55's . i can start the alterations on the old frame me thinks and drive the bird for awhile longer { just for another month or so when the customline is up and running with new exhaust then off too the butcher shop !!!!!!!!! }so now i'm off too the classifieds for a look see for a cab and front clip , bed etc. or a whole truck if its really cheap . i know the chop top 55 on my end of town is still sitting going to hades maybe i can talk him out of it again without his wife's interference ...................... though still i love the idea of my bessie hauling **** !!!!!!!!! AND MY OLD 55 IS STILL SITTING UNFINISHED IN THE GARAGE OF THE GUY WHO GOT IT FROM TWISE this is till i get too thinking again ...................
