Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

The Pictures don't do it justice. There is probably 20 times or more to see. I have been 2 or 3 times before. Every time I bring a friend down here to my buddy's house I take them there so I forget How overwhelming it is.

Went to a swap meet at Sumpter County fair grounds this morning. Scored an under floor brake setup. Brand new for less than half price. A pair of exterior door handles and a box of 8mm Mauser cartridges. A good day.

Not any progress as far as working on the truck. I did go to a swap meet at New England Dragway today and picked up a track lock third member for a nine inch That needs a ring and pinion for cheap money. I also bought an HEI distributor for a small block ford thinking that it would fit my 5.0 motor. After getting home I looked it up and it turns out by the part number it is for a 351. It seems to fit and the only thing I can find that is different from the cam position sensor is that the tube that goes over the oil pump drive is a little shorter. It has about a 1/2 inch of engagement which is about a 1/2 inch less than cam position sensor. It seems like it will work. Am I missing some thing else?

Been working on the truck a little bit at a time. Made the bolt in K-member and added a cross member at the bottom of the kick-up in the rear. Both are made of .120 wall wall X 1.5" D.O.M tube. I also modified the master cylinder bracket so that it is closer to the frame and at the correct angle so the pedal will push straight. Moving the master to the left should give me enough room to run the exhaust between it and the trans. The next steps should be steering rack and headers. I guess it's time too spend some money that I don't have much of.
