    What a great feeling to drive a car after 31 years. Bet you couldn't stop grinning all the way. How come such a lay up?

    Regards Dan

    I would drive it awhile before lowering it .... May settle some after a couple hundred miles.

    I would change the Fake Spoke Front wheels though ..

    Just me but those wheels are just Wrong

    Otherwise looks like a Super Bitchen Car !

    31 years is awesome.
    I've had "keepers" that have not lasted 31 days.

    Thanks everyone, I'm looking for some US Indys to match the back which have been on the car since the late 60's. I'm going to leave the front for now, hoping it will settle down a bit. For the steering I'm using a Unisteer... works great, almost 4 turns lock to lock and easy steering. I know its not traditional but the old 40's Ford steering box broke while driving.
