Been reading Hamb for months and finally got the nerve to sign on. If other old farts can I guess I can too! Just turned 59. Been out of the rod net since 1963! Retired Army. First car was 37 ford slant back with a 41 sleeved and milled Lhead, sporting 2 carbs on a fenton, daul straights packed with steel wool, green wheels, fake whites and hand painted flames! In those days I bought old ford parts at the scrape metal yard by weight. Second was a 40 Ford 2 door sedan with a 52 olds mill and columbia unit. Been running a stock 55 Belair 4 door since 79 and am in the process of re-doing it now. Trying to get caught up on the terms. Guess all my old stuff came under the title of rat rods or maybe scrap rods! I have enjoyed the reads and the pics. Good to see interest in the old Ford flat heads. Still planning that rod I never got a chance to build and I may do it yet. People on the Hamb remind of the guys back in the early 60s. Guess a few rodders show up in every generation. Im out of here for now.
