    Just got a movie, from Joe's wife's cell phone camera, of the truck hauling ass away from a stoplight, so I guess the starter is IN!:D <happy dance>

    Here is the latest news - we got the starterput it in had a few hick ups but figured it out. Couple of hours later we were able to get the truck off the jack stands and send Joe on his way.
    He will be at the Alameda classic car show this weekend from 10-3 p.m. on Park street. Great show for anyone who wants to come out.
    I am glad that I was able to help faciltate the get together to complete this for Joe.
    It was really cool to meet people from the HAMB who really stepped up. It took a village but we all made it happen.
    I think Joe is really happy and will be at this years show for sure without fail because of this/our comminity.

    Joe....this is an awesome thread! It kind of makes me think that there might be some hope for humanity out there after all!! I wish I could have helped out....but I was driving my son's car out to Colorado....left Friday and arrived on Saturday evening....that was after spending nights on it doing a timing belt job.

    Good luck this weekend!!

    I just got word that we will be on the block between Lincoln and Buena Vista. It's is the block where Good Chevrolet and Morris Landy Ford once was. I have no idea which side, though. Just look for the faded red oxide primer (pink) 1953 F100 with a real patina job on it.

    Hope to see you there!

    Perfect day over there. It was good seeing those who could make it, I may have missed a couple as I sat down at the 13 for a minute to get out of that sun.

    I am happy that I was able to help you get your truck to the show.
    It was a cool experience and met some cool guys along the way.
    Enjoy the ride :).

    Glad it all came together! Bless you guys
