    My name is Sly and I live and breathe hotrods. I'm a member of Marineland Streetrods & Kustom Club in Napier. I currently own a 1962 2 door Galaxie, running an FE390, which was imported from the States a couple years back. I'm also in the process of building a 1928 closed cab pickup which will be running a 351 Windsor 4 speed top loader and a 9in rear. Keen to chat through this forum and get some advice with the build process. Thanks in advance.
    Cheers
    Sly
