    As above.
    I love traditional Ford Hot-rods.
    But they are few and far between here.
    I have been looking for a couple of years now for ANYTHING that might start a project, to no avail.
    Anything I've seen was either restored or huge money.
    Hopefully there are a few lads here that might give me some direction, hints, tips or locations.
    Thanks,
    Alan.

    We travel to Ireland as often as possible. Love Ireland. Friends in Dublin. This summer I saw an F-100 parked in Kenmare. The only time I've seen a rod or classic over there. Narrow roads. No, really narrow roads. Lots of insurance would be my recommendation. Can't imagine driving a hot rod there.

    Visited there over the summer and saw a 67 mustang outside Limerick in a small garage. Beautiful Country, every turn on every road feels like a game of chicken!

    Thanks Murf. I will.
    You know anything about the restorer working out of Granard?

    No.. but I think a restorer would cringe at what I am going to do to my model B especially it's a original irish car.
