Default got a build thread going?

if you have a build thread going
or are following a favorite build thread

please post a link to it here.

in a week or so one of us mods will move this thread to the Tech Archives
we can update this thread with new links as they come in

the original threads can remain on the main forum here for the builders to update

and those of us that enjoy keeping up on our favorite projects will have a convenient way to stay up to date

good idea?

I'd like to put the "early Olds Rocket motor, into a stock 40 Ford & drive line" for only one reason:

Hamb is about the old ways, and this was once a very popular swap for a backyarder with basic tools. I am 60, and this was the most fun/fastest swap I've ever done. Everyone who has seen how it all fits in there, in person, is in awe.

I did not even touch the welder until I made the crossover exhaust pipe.

If there is a better build showing this type of swap, use that one instead.

Kool idea...Now I just need to start a build thread on my car. It would probably get closed anyway. No one seems to want to see a glass car get built even if it does look stock.
