Default Turning a "Rat Rod" :( into a Hot Rod :)

Step 1: "get the car stuck in the back yard while trying to move it because it sits to damn low.

Whoa! Those pix brought back memories of changing a clutch in the snow. Never again! You are either determined or one of those other de... words.
I wanna watch this one! Glad you're sticking with the Woodie type body. Good luck to you and keep us posted.

Wowzers.

You, sir, are an Iron Man if ever there was one.

I must be getting old..... I refuse to wrench in a snowbank or sliding around in gravel.

But looking forward to updates.

Please tell me you did not chop the roof on a decent factory ford woodie body and you just built your own..

Glad to see you are raising it up and going for a hotrod vs a RR look.
