I learned what kind of car guy my dad is. Oh, i laughed. My dad and step mum made the 1-1/2 hour drive to come visit me and my lady this last weekend. As things happened. Him and I ended up out in the garage. sippin beers,and a lil shine, acting smart and talking dumb. it was an event in our relationship that is truely rare. As boys and there fathers can often have a ruff relationship. This visit was relativly positive. We got talking bout my progress on the ol ford. (which him and his siblings have driven) I got telling him what I had done with the engine. What I had done with the brakes and so on and so forth. I mentioned to him the brake kits parts cross to chevy calipers and i had to use dodge wheels to clear the calipers. I had a positive response untill I mentioned the dodge wheels and my desire to run the dodge dog dish caps. Ha Ha Ha,oh the sour look and words he shared. i chuckled so hard. I nearly fell off my chair. He was just dumfounded that I was not able to use ford wheels. I told him. Pa, I got a hell of a deal and that is what im going to use. I believe with this sort of response from him in regards to the comingling of brands he would qualify as a purist. Oh well. makes no difference to me.I guess this experiense will prep me for the heckeling and grilling I will be recieving from people at a show. Oh well fudge it. Thanx dad for the laugh.
