It's actually a truck. 1954 Ford F100. I'm gonna "massage" it a little though.

It was in a field with busted windows, bees, spiders, and mice(and one large serpent) He didn't make the trip back.

I haven't built something from the ground up since 1984? Man, that tells a lot!

Ford folks are gonna hate me. So are Chevy guys. I'm throwin all their stuff in a blender to make one shake.

Chevy powered Ford? I'm a Chevrolet fan but kinda like it when you keep it all one brand.

Can't wait to see it finished.

FORD makes it, CHEVY shakes it...

It could only be better with a Caddilac or Pontiac motor in it... We are doing a '48 Ford "rat" truck with a '66 model 352 in it. In the process of developing a "buggy spring mount and shaackles" for the front of it. Okay... no more truck stuff, I couldn't help it.

FLATTRACK RACE AT TAR HEEL SPEEDWAY SATURDAY SEPT. 21 GATES OPEN AT 1330 PRACTICE AT 1700 RACING AT 1900!!! BRING IT, WE'LL MAKE A CLASS FOR IT!!!

Buddy of mine that many of you guys know, "Coco", RON'd at A53 last night enroute to Pisgah for MotoMark's adventure riding course.

Pic of him leaving this morning...One well sorted GS!



2 new Trials sections finished this weekend, plus a couple of stadium section obstacles. Thanks for the help Ripper and GER!

You got my prayers Brother. I pray that the arms of the Lord hold you and your Dad and that the God of all comfort, comforts you and strengthens you. He knows our needs even before we ask.

Nothin but love for ya brother... The flesh may not like it and the unsaved may not understand it but like JESUS promises us in John 14:27 HIS peace he leaves with us so we won't be troubled or afraid... Ain't nothing like knowing a passing loved one is saved and that you were obedient and invested your life into theirs as GOD led you, and there will be no regret on your part. So many people get "busy" with a life and miss it... Prayers and respect for you.
