      I don't think so.... So is this not allowed in this particular forum? They are Ford Flatties which is why I shared here.

      Oh Randy, they are allowed, actually encouraged. I used to race one of those, wish mine had the Hillborn Injection like that pair have. I was running 3 Stromberg 97s. Still was able to do a 0:10:92 at 152mph when I broke the frame.

      3/8x3/8 8BA block resined.
      Potvin 425 Eliminator Cam
      Harmon-Collins dual point mag
      26 tooth Lincoln trans, second and high only w/reverse.
      4:11 cut down rear end.
      95" 1296# single black iron pipe frame.
      26"x8" slicks.

      Whew, a stroll down memory lane.
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        Whew!
        For a minute there I thought I was gonna get a vacation!
        Once on the Hokey place, the conversation went into setting up old Jimmy blowers. I made mention that I had a bit of experience and had recently built a big block Nova.. A couple guys asked for pics, I posted, WHAMMO I got a two week vacation and told if it happened again, it would be permanent...
        Wiz (your Momma named you dat?)
        I'd love to see pics if you have any. Back in the early 70's I tried my hand at running an old TF digger .... Cost a small fortune and was lucky to get out of it alive... Then went door slammer racing followed by circle track and road racing.

            Oh please don't! This is a place of information, not a place of nonsense.

            No Randy, my mother was stuck with a tradition that my opinion was not asked about when she named me, and in my Junior year of High School, was called J.C. and it has stuck for over 50 years, so I'm keepin it!

            I was fortunate that when I pulled a 7' wheely in my digger and came down to break the frame, I was able to control it to that 0:10:52 pass and that ended my driving career. I did continue to ride motorcycles however and would still be doing that IF I could grip the handlebars. *sighs* But alas, all good things will come to an end and I can't even do that anymore. So I build on the Model A.

            J.C.

            Nah - no mo Hokey... I still read there from time to time but I no longer feel like contributing directly.
            Got it JC...
            The frame was damaged on my digger when the crankshaft in my 300' old Keith Black engine decided to part company with the block in about five pieces.. Cost me dearly to get the car back together again with the old 392. Sold it all off...

              by Steve Plucker
              How many of you at one time or the other over the years heard something about the Model A/AA Ford that you had a hard time beleiving if it were true or not.

              Here is my story...I was told once that before the Ford Runtunda fire of what year I forget, that there were many Ford archives and Ford data that were lost due to the fire.

              One of the items that was lost were all the...

              55 Ford
              by 2manycars
              Here is a photo of me and my 55 Ford, taken in 1967, at Klamath Lake, in Klamath Falls, Ore. I painted it 67 Corvette Sunfire Yellow. The link is to a song called "55 Ford".

              How many times we've seen this? A Business Man makes a BIG LOAN, rents an Old Warehouse, paints it, hangs up FANCY Lights & pics & certificates, cordons off an IMPRESSIVE "Office" area & "I'm a Car Dealer, now"!!
              Off to the Right is a door to the Salesmens' Meeting Room, where they are Indoctrinated with TODAYS' sales schemes,...

              American Icon: How Alan Mullaly Saved the Ford Motor Company
              by Jeff/Illinois
              This is a good book for all you Ford fans if you are looking to pass some winter weather time indoors. Some neat points they make in the book, in relation to Model A Fords, was the story of 'how' the Model A came about (we've all heard it still interesting) but also later Alan Mullaly makes reference to how they pulled Ford out of the brink of disaster after he took over in Sept. 2006, akin to what...
