My 36 was my first full build, was a fire truck, built with a 51 ford p/u frame, wescott frame plans for measurements while I tracked down parts, $2500 paint job from a local school, built my own box and everything else, tons of sweat equity, twenty years later still got her, her name is mary. Ten or more hot rods been built in my shop, all gone, but mary stays. I didn't even like the looks of a 36 pickup when I got her, but I'll die with her. I built her to go long distances, she's very comfortable, gets pulled into the garage, not looked at, rolled out for another 300 miles and has done that since I built her, all those years ago, has never let me down, ever. She has become a family heirloom.
