I am 58 years old, and have the 51 f1 my dad taught me to drive with. It has been in our family for 45 plus years. I traded up a 88 Lincoln Mark vii and I am planning on using the drivetrain in the truck. I have been a mechanic for 43 years, yep started in a service station at 15. I have never built a hot rod or restomod or rat rod and thought this would be a good place to discuss things. If my ways are not your ways I will not bother anyone. Thanks for the time.
