    I've always wanted a car/truck to build. After many years of building models. I got my dad to help me build a 1949 ford f-3 (truck cab and front end) that we saved from the scrap yard. Along with a 70's chevy step side box that was shortend and narrowed. All sitting on an s-10 frame that we put together using a 1953 ford truck midsection ( for the cab mounts) also got the frame from the scrap yard. Gotta love those scrap yards. Put in a 1999 s-10 4 wheel drive rear axel with disk brakes. Lowered the front with 2" drop spindles and 4 cyl. springs. Got a rebuilt mild performance ford 302 backed by c-6 trans. Hope to have it done by the time Torque Fest rolls around.

    Welcome from the Iowa City, IA area.

    Whereabouts in Iowa are you at?

    I'm also a long time model builder. Do you know about KKIM?
