NIce truck Old Crew. I gave a 72 Highboy (360, factory 4bbl, 4 speed) to a local out here. He has it up and running now, and it looks good.

Welshj, those are just a few of the cars I own. I didn't mention the 03 F550 flatbed, 06 F450 contractor bed, 99 SC2, 98 SL1,  Neon, Caravan, Probe, 01 3500 4x4 6 speed Cummins,  06 Ram 1500 4x4 mega cab hemi, 06 Ram 2500 4x4 quad cab Cummins,  94 Ram 2500 4x4 Cummins , or the 04 Pontiac Vibe GT.  The 94 is the donor for the 56 sedan. I have 2 more 94s  that I have to go pick up, and looking to go to Burlington WY this weekend to get a 56 Imperial sedan parts car, if I can get the 40' car trailer unloaded in time. I gave my first car to a friend in TX. 1974 Gold Duster 318 4bbl 3 speed stick. It was a mess and he is converting it into a Demon. I got outbid on a wrecked 03 Ram SRT/10 that would have been the donor for the 56 2dr.  Also looking at the cast iron V10s as they put out 400-450 ft lb from 1,300 to 5,000 rpm. but there is not the aftermarket for them like the Viper engine. Could also do the 5.7/6.1/6.4 swap. Depends on what I find for the right price.  My all time favorite car though is a 41 Willys coupe. Have not got one of those........ yet.

Holy... lol. I thought I was doing good with five cars.

'18 fiat spider abarth, '13 fiat 500 abarth, '18 jeep compass, '99 2500 HD, and a little '64 austin cooper.

Hmmm... 41 willy's. Good choice.

If we're talking dream cars- mines a '29 model A truck, old school blown hemi, fenderless... big and littles, old school hot rod look....sigh....

On the vehicle side, I'm playing with a 74 Dodge Dart I picked up for a song, and a xxxxxx stern drive Bayliner.  I'd be fine with the Bayliner becoming an artificial reef, but I like the Dart.

Did the head gaskets and freeze plugs, raised the dang torque bars to where it didn't scrape the wheel wells when you make a turn, and we're currently playing with the carburetor and getting rid of all the assorted duct tape and bubble gum from the previous owner.  This is far more literal than I would have believed possible. The vacuum hose is connected to the brake booster with silicon caulk.  Funny things, intake and exhaust bolts work better when they're not just hand tight.
