Hope to have on the road in April '13

1952 Ford F1
First saw on my only ride in 'merica w/ Fite, Ace & Katoomer in '08 in Cooke City, MT. Had a for sale sign in the back window, ran the guy down for info, then pondered buying it for a year and a half... finally couldn't hold back and picked her up summer of '10. Started tearing her down that fall, hope to have her completed by April's car show in Eagle River... Here are a few of the many shots I have of her in various stages of rebuild.

The new powerplant

The new frame

during teardown... note the original Yellowstone "Park Ranger" lettering above windshield


Coming together

Finally in paint

getting there!

Lots of time, money, searching the internet for ideas, money, listening to the wife discuss how much it's costing... Oh, did I mention money?
Yesterday, I checked into a motel room and said to the receptionist, "I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's regular porn, you sick bastard."

Mythical Riders,
Boy are they Movin'!
Thru the dust rocks & mud...
