    Just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I have been into and building cars since I was a small kid, especially hot rods. I have had everything from a 40 Ford to late model Mustangs. I currently have a 64 Ford pickup that has seen almost no progress in the last year. I am self employed so unfortunately cars get pushed to the back burner when I get busy. Just a little on what has been done on it so far:
    1970 frame and suspension
    Lowered 8 inches
    351w/C-4
    Prior to the truck the last project I completed was a 1963 Lincoln Continental that I sold(along with every other thing that resembled fun) to start my own firm. I saw the car a few weeks ago and it had 20 inch wheels and neon lights. I wanted to kick the jackass in his teeth. There is not much of a traditional scene in this town so I have to rely on the internet to get my fix. Look forward to meeting everyone and maybe getting some motivation to get off my rear and get something driveable.

    Hey Calvin, I'm thrashin on mine right now trying to get it ready for Day of the Drags in Temple this weekend...you going? Been working on it for 2 years. Not really "complete" even if I get it on the road (needs a little body work and striping), but I just hate sitting on the sidelines and I know you know what I mean. Cool site...enjoy seeing Texans on here. Later, John

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone. John unfortunately I am not going to be able to make it to Temple. What really sucks is that I will be in Austin the following weekend on business. It's like being a day late and a dollar short. Let me know how it was though.

    I'm good for Pistons and Paint. I have friends in Denton so it's a great reason to take a trip.
