nice score, man. i'm fifteen (see signature) and i've got a 59 ford f-100. just make sure you're ALWAYS doing something on it. go out there and just do one thing every day, don't get overwhelmed. fixing up these old things is just too much fun. you'll get all the attention at school, there's some other cats our age here and were all good friends. if they haven't already posted on here i'm sure they will. my opinion on the engine swap is just keep the flatty. everybody loves em' and your insurance bills will be much cheaper.
