    Default Newbie in town....

    Hi Everyone.....
    I just found this website and it's pretty cool for sure. I'm a 64 year old retired guy and I've always been into hot rods, originally from Indiana and now live about 35 miles south of Boston since 1968.
    I always wanted to build my own rod and in 1997 I bought the 1930 Ford Model A Coupe in my avatar. Of course it was an original steel body and frame which I built from the frame up, adding a new crate sbc 350, also have 3:73's in the Ford 8.8" rearend. I started with a Saginaw 4-speed and after a couple years I swapped it out for an '86 IROC 5-speed. I kept that in it for about 3 years and got tired of constantly messing with the hydraulic system for the clutch so I added a 700R4 overdrive automatic and I love it. I got it on the road in the spring of 2001 and I finally got around to having an "official" interior installed last winter ( see my Cool Rods album for pics of the new interior ) so it feels like a new car again.
    Anyway, that's a little about me and my car, I will drop in here often so keep up the good work on the website, thanks for having me!!
    Cheers, Mike

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
