This project is alot of work,but darn fun.With my work my car and my pops not being in good health.It's taking alot longer then we thought it would.He got the wheels and tires,and we had to get a new frame,rods,steering rod,and arm,brakes,wiring,ect.It's adding up fast but I'm helping him keep it all under $10000 like he wanted too.
Nothing fits right,nothing is a bolt right on. But we'll get it done,hopefully soon.
At least it will be all Ford.

It works two ways, Scoop. Buying a completed or half completed project has a different set of issues. You would be surprised to see all the Mickey Mouse crap rigged into a car under the guise of sound engineering.

ron I know you help him as muchh as you can but I want you to remember this you are fortunate as well as your father and brother that your dad is there with to to have this time to do these thing together. I did not know my dad until i was 32 and then I only saw him twice since then. I am not looking for simpity I just want you to realize that we take alot of things for granted and you have to be there for your family as well so dont feel guilty about not spending as much time with him just be gratful you have the opportunity to spend any time at all with him life is precious and we need to retain our memories of good times ..bruce

SLOW thats how things are going.
We did get the rear in and the frame painted.All the front end parts are there and painted.The motor trans is all ready to go.And almost all the parts are in now.So next week we get started puting it together.We hope to be done by the end of October.

But it will be the only all Ford car in the Reno T-BUCKET club.
