    Happy Birthday J, mine would be a 32 five window coupe, 37 engine with some tasty speed goodies.
    No fenders, unchopped, like the one my Dad had, and the firs car I ever rode in.

    I've been very lucky to have found a ton of cool shit in the past few years, the only couple things I can think of that I want are one of those Tucker radios that I see on eBay every once in a while and a '34 Ford car grille in good enough shape to run as-is that doesn't cost as much as I have in the rest of the car.

    But what I really need is a big bank of free time. That'd be worth more to me than any new parts at the moment.

    Smoothie Halibrands - got em.
    Grancor heads - got em.
    Kinmont brakes - got em.
    Pat Warren quickchange - got it.
    Old Ford sheetmetal - got it.

    Time to put it all together - number one thing missing on my list.

    Early Model AA Underdrive Box
    McCoulough VS57 Supercharger (got it but it needs a rebuild)
    V12 Lincoln Flathead
    28/29 Ford Pickup Cab

    ...a nice Mallory unit to spark up my 8ba would be nice too.

    Hmmmmnnnnnnn le's see

    Mine is probably not as cool as everyone else's.

    A pair of Enderle Barn doors.
    A GM Mystery motor (the virtually non existent 427), I would actually be happy with enough parts to build a destroked 409.
    A Z-28 Off road cam
    A good 4 gear ( I would settle for a Saginaw LOL)
    Any race weight body up to and including a first gen Corvette. I doubt than anyone ever built one but a race weight A sedan would fit my current project to a T ( no pun intended).
    An older hot rodded or mild custom and not to bad abused '40 Ford coupe and a hot 394/B&M trannied olds. Got everything but the Ford. I would settle for a solid '51 Ford Victoria.
    a '46 Jail Bar pickup
    A pair of 8 wide ( or 7s) Ansen Sprints ( early not modern)

    I could expand my list but as you can see I am a '60s kid. LOL

    Edit damn it:
    Two pair of 327 Turbofire rocker covers so I can build myself a tall set to clear my valve train. Canted valves and roller rockers require a lot of room.

    A late 60s style fuel altered with 392
    A 70s style fuel altered with a Donovan
    Ted Browns (RIP) T bucket
    Rich Guascos red Topolino (built by CARS)
    53-55 Studebaker coupe

    And a shed big enough to fit them all in - shed to have polished white tile floor, great lighting and to look like a modern car dealership showroom (without the modern cars)

    A pair of Cragar GT breathers were on my list for a long time and I finally found them. They're up for sale at the moment only to help fund a once in a lifetime chance to buy something I've been looking for forever. Here's the link to the ad in case these were on anyone else's list: Gragar GT Breathers.

    Read the postline here, and the first thing that came to mind was this week's political happenings; I won't go there however. MY personal wish list includes an OT forum rules car or two, getting my current project actually done (sleeper/bracket car), so I can get on to another (car trailer project), and assembling all these small bore/short stroke engines I have. We need another drag strip in Western Washington, and I'd really like to see that happen.
    I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    If I'm honest, I'd like to have the 427 cobra motor that was in my F-100 before I bought it, second I'd like to either try and restore or sell my '49 Lincoln(turns out it was more than I could handle), last but by no means least, meeting Linda Vaughn would be nice.
