    I keep getting these requests to tell a little about myself. Makes me feel like I am going to confession!!
    OK, so let’s start at this end. I am 74 years old and live on a horse farm. The wife is the one who likes the horses. My shop is a pole-barn with a dirt floor so don't expect perfection.
    Now, let’s go to the other end. My first car at 15 years old (1956) was a 1939 Lincoln Continental V 12. Paid $35 and sold it for $50. Never did get it running. After that was a model A that we chopped, a '35 5 window that we channeled and a whole series of '40 Fords. None of which were of show quality but a real joy to me and driven on the street. Then there was a wife and two kids and all that stuff. That’s how we got to here and now. Now is one last hot rod. Namely a fiberglass Jeep body and a 455 Olds that have been lying around the place. Surly with the help of all you guys I can make this into one last hot rod.
    Thanks………Terry
    PS thanks Brian for the help on the frame
