Welll here goes nothing. I'm starting my first build thread so as to keep myself accountable and on the right track in getting this thing finished. So the hope here is to end up with a modest 50's kustom DRIVER built purely for the purpose of reliability, style, class, and fun, all on a working mans budget with limited build hours through the week (one day a week to be exact...my day off). The engine will be built for reliability, the body mods will be modest and practical, and the build will be slow going, but the idea here is that a little bit here and there in the way of time and money will all add up eventually. Starting off with a 1950 Ford Sedan bought from a good friend for $500. I've personally ALWAYS wanted a shoebox and this is the first car that me and the ol' lady looked over and picked out together, and despite it's current ugly duckling state she absolutely fell in love with, so now that it's been given the green light, it's time to get to work.
