      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    1957 Ford Wagon
    I am building one of the newer Ford gasser kits to build a replica of a drag car a friend raced in his wilder years. I myself am not up to speed on Fords themselves, so I am in search of info to help me out some. The setup he ran way back when was a Paxton supercharged Y block. At this point I just want to know if the engine in the kit is a Y block or where to be able to get one. Also, I'm in search of a set of 1969 Boss Mustang.
    Can someone please help with info to help me out? It would be greatly appreciate it.

    Hey Rick,
    I was in your shoes in High School. My first car was a 1974 Ventura/GTO, 350cid, 3spd on the floor, bench seat, trunk car. I wish I still had it. I bought the full '72 Ventura body kit and a Nova donor kit so I could build my 1:1, too. I just don't have the confidence in myself to do all of the scratch building to convert it over to a '74. I would be happy to work WITH you and maybe we could figure it out together. Who knows, maybe we could build ourselves a couple of contest winners out of this pickle.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll go check him out and see what he has to offer.

    I wouldn't consider them to be that wide. Mine's buried in the closet right now, but if I would have to guess I might say 30mm? they're fairly narrow. That's why I'm looking for a wider aftermarket style wheel and tire set if they exist. I want to do a custom build with one of those bike kits.

    300 Series rear tire
    `Where is a good place to look for resin motorcycle parts? I'm looking for something like a 300 series rear tire and wheel set so I can build a custom bike.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I just don't have that much of confidence in my scratch building skills. If it's so easy to scratch build, why doesn't someone make a resin body? I think they would break the bank & not be able to keep up with sales. They would have to have a ton of back stock before announcing they had them in my opinion.

    Dodge Bros
    I'm looking for a company that might make an early '20's Dodge sedan body. Does anyone make such a thing?
