    Hey Jay...what's up...long time no see. Hows life at the wheel shop? Is the Falcon finally on the road, or is it on the side burner? The truck looks sweet. I'm coming up your way on the 24th of this month for surgery, I'll swing by and check out your progress. By the way, did you hear about the swap meet this coming weekend in Yorkton? If so, maybe I'll see you there....Later, Jeff

    Wow that looks cool, I like the engine placement high instead of down low in the frame like most do it.

    Looking good, keep us updated.

    I hope you'll continue to post more pictures of your build. I just have to add a truck in that style to my future builds. First I have a 1955 Chevrolet 1/2 ton and 1951 Merc to build. But theirs no reason I can't find one now and have it waiting :)
