I recognize your starting piece. It's the swiveling bracket for a truck box hoist. You're not going to make a gravel truck, are you?
Keep up the good work.

I can't believe you gave us a still shot of a yo-yo, when it cries out for a video. Were you just going to leave us hanging, with a short story and a plain photo?

I had a devastating thought late yesterday. This shiny steering will be the only non-'old school' thing on this truck, I hope. I may not be able to call it a 'ratrod' and keep my head up. Man o man,...

I like the whole car, the style, the colour, and the 302 with cool mufflers. The only things I would change is the too high top and the Mercury licence plate.

You're welcome Doc. It also bugs me to call a Meteor a Mercury,---[even though------]. One of our guys offends me by disagreeing with my thoughts. Here is his car. I really like this car.

I still have my high school '56 Meteor, [Canadian Ford with a Mercuryish grille and usually the Mercury motor, although mine just had a 292]. My car was pink so I need a red one.

Hello and welcome to UnDead Sleds, from northern Alberta. Our paths seem to have crossed, as I have a Model A Ford and a '34 Dodge Brothers truck. Neither one of mine are as far along as yours are.
