Drive it when ever I can and yes I do own it.
Drove the Ford in the summer and am building the Meteor for next summer
Yes i own it and built it,with the exception of boring the block ,stiching the seat and cutting the crank i did it all.Its now since painted orange metal flake and has halibrand sprints on her.The picture was its first time out with my first hot rod at the roadagents show.Drove it 3 miles around town then 350 round trip to the show.I didnt take the picture but it was a special trip that i like to remember
As far as use,4 transmissions 2 sets of tires its been trouble free,as long as there is no salt on the roads or terential down pours i use it as often as i can.
I have had a great time building it and using it and expect even more with the next one
I sure do. It has a blower now and I love driving it.
yeah, since 1973.
the pic in the avitar is me about to get my doors blown off by HRLC. i don't feel too bad, though; she could pull 3 pistons out of that 455 and still have a larger engine than clarence.
Yeah, I own mine, but it doesn't run. It hasn't been driven since the mid 70's. The pic is from about 1980,when I was in H.S. It was right after a buddy of mine dragged it out of Spring Lake Auto Salvage in Manito Ill. Yup, it's a California car........by way of Alaska.
ok you guys are way to kool . im way behind & my arm is still sore . you guys/gals should pat yourselfes on the back while you can . you definately deserve it !! i was thinking that if someone had the money to put the talent on this board all in one shop , you could rule the WORLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not kidding , just the facts .
I only had to put 3 quarts of oil every 30 miles in it . this is the determination of a true hot rodder !
Yup. Flathead now, not the injected 427. great day on the flathead .
What's an Avatar? i guess if you have to ask , its not a biggy .
I sold it to two homo's in California. they will never appreciate it like you did .
i see naked guys on it now .
However, it is now in sick bay waiting for a rear end transplant . sounds like some girls i know .
I hope to drive mine for the first time in 2009 . if you need help , holler .
Quit driving my "pacemaker" to church since I painted it black . i hope it works in black .
Uh, no... not since 1968. But it's out of hibernation and in surgery . im sure you can fix it . if not the talent here is knee deep .
My avatar is an expression of my deep inner brooding and the machinations of a rust infused man-child . i cant even begin to solve this .

Its mine but I sure hate winter.
Every time I bring it out it destroys tanks and melts guns.
Some of these replies are going to be funny in the future when poeple change their avatars.
Owned mine for a little over three years now. Drive it nearly every day from April til December, then it's into the garage for whatever my budget allows. Just pulled the bed off last night for repairs, new bed supports, and moving the rear back a little to center the wheels.
Mine is a 60 Falcon Gasser. It was given to me by my gradfather back in 1988 and he owned it for some years, I think he bought it in 1982 for $100.00. Of course it was a stock 6 cylinder then but over 25 years in the family.
Yep, drive mine too.
My '55 looks exactly like the 1964 Revell box art but for a few small details, the main one being the model kit was a hardtop and my car is a coupe.
I'm currently building mine. I've been collecting parts for it since '04. Hope to be driving it next year or so. I've been doing everything myself... thanks to the wealth of knowledge and info on the HAMB!
I put many miles on mine when I was little.
I've owned mine twice since 1977. Do I drive it? 43,000 miles since 2 yr. rebuild completed in 2001. P*ss on Trailer Queens.
owned it for 10 years
drove it to work today
I haven't driven mine since the picture was taken ;-)
Owned..Built..rebuilt...re-rebuilt over the last 34 years..
Just put it in the garage after a ride..
Dear Penthouse Forum,
