Howdy yall... glad to have stumbled into this place...think I'll order a pitcher and get to know everyone. My name is Rocky Burris Jr. My dad's been building cars for years and years so I guess I can't help but follow along, learn what I can, and do my best to make him proud. Hopefully my son Rocky III will follow suite and we'll be able to share the interest like me and my pops have...R3's already got a pretty sweet hotrod pedal car his Papa got him last xmas so we're doin are best to bring him up right. Here's my 55 special lovingly referred to as "Special Ed" ...he's a kool car but he's a little slow. 264 cu nailhead and a rebuilt dynaflow. Larry James (HAMBer name OutKast) and his boy Ryan painted the car for me last year. They've got a shop her in Wichita called FlyinEyeCreations I plan to run down an affordable 322 from a 56 one of these days. I also have a pretty kool 55 f-100 that I mustang II'd with the help of my dad. It has torqthrust II's on it right now and some pretty kool kustom tailights I made from 59 cad and 37 ford buckets. I recently picked up a 61 chrysler grille and some dual headlight from a 62 olds off ebay. It will eventually get a 401 nailhead but right now a 350/350 driveline is doing the job. It needs to be chopped still and suicide doors. 50's kustom theme for the truck would make me really happy. I'll post some pix soon enough.
