    Yeah I know Ben is going to kill me for posting, but I wanted to thank him for all the great work he did to get the family car, BUDD II going. Now you may ask why BUDD II, 2 because the first one was sold to get his shop built, and BUDD for Big Ugly Damn (DeLozier) Dodge (either Bob or Atch came up with the name I think). Come on everybody tell Ben how good he did.

    Oh, by the way, we couldn't have done it without the Tech line, FLatTop Bob, Mike )(Visor), the guys at Rebel wiring, Dave in Washington, MO, and Harv, oh and the guys at our local repair shop for the occasional drove it down and this is what it's doing questions.

    My husband besides being a great car hauler is a fantastic chassis builder, and can adapt or refab anything to work. He's also a great guy, father, and I think I picked good for lots of reasons not to be discussed on this board. OK, that's all the mushy stuff I'll do, now let those with a man crush chime in. :confused:

    You know, he should put a roof rack on it.. and paint "Freddy Fleet and his band with the Beat" on the side..

    Or just put "T and A" Transport on the side, and use it as a tax deduction for advertising..!

    Yeah, I know, I hate bias plys, but Ben wanted to leave them on the first day because of the wheels and trim rings. I asked him to put the orange ones on, which he did Sat. morning, but we didn't get pics, I took 2 while in the garage, but Ben said nope he'll get it out, and I can get some good pics.

    I like the orange better, too.

    Roof rack- yeah it's still in the box, but it should be on once the sedan is done, and Ben feels better about drilling into the premium headliner.

    Remember I have to drive this to work daily in August, so no T and A, or I would have to explain it, and I don't teach sex education in 4th grade.:) It could get me arrested.:eek:

    Didn't know you were driving it to school:rolleyes:. guess you could do tanda transport, and tell them you specialize in hauling a rare breed of bears called "tandas"...

    That was pretty bad, wasn't it?:rolleyes: It's just what I think of every email I get from "tanda transport"...

    MissyD,
    That's a whole new meaning to the term "Honey Do". Great job and congrats! And I agree, you married a good one and you both have raised a fine son!

    Is that a 47?

    Just did one for a lady friend. She calls it the "47 Doll" and has personalized plates. Left it at stock height but did a slant 6 auto. Ice pearl blue paint.
    She loves it!

    Still want to lower the front a bit. Not too many of the old dodges around.

    Looking fantastic Missy~

    It's a 46, the other one I had was a 48, and they are almost identical.

    Thanks,
    Missy
