    Good Luck on the new site

    My name is Paul and I'm retired. I have four old cars.

    The first is a 48 Ford Conv., mild 302, 8 inch rear custom interior, power brakes, windows and steering. I have had this car over 30 years and have done a lot of traveling with it.

    The second is a 54 Ford Victoria, 312, 4 speed toploader and a 9 inch rear. Pleated custom interior. When I bought it, it had a stock 239 and auto and I did the changeover.

    The third is a 56 Bird, mostly stock, 312 but I have installed a C-4 auto. Have done a lot of traveling with this car too, two trips from the east coast to the west coast plus other trips to various Tbird conventions. Was restored about 6 years ago

    The fourth is a 64 Fairlane. mostly stock. Originally a six with a three speed on the tree, I installed a HO and kept the 3 speed and have done some minor upgrading.

      You have good taste in cars. I like to see them built to be driven.


        Glad you are here, Paul. With tasteful cars like yours and decades of experience I look forward to your contributions.


          Especially like your '48 Convertible! I had a '41 & "upgraded" to a '46. I shortened my side trim & ended it at the front of the doors. I used the electric top lifts from the '41 & made "mystyfing" hood & trunk lifts! Painted Pirate Red, a '49 Lincoln/Mercury color. Car was set on a low rake. STOLE the SouthWind heater from the '41, to keep my Honey WARM! Ever get stuck & sleep overnight, in the back seat of a CONVERTIBLE???---I LOST the coin toss---LOL
          Ever switch the shift lever to the LEFT side, for more "makin' out" room? They shift sort' FUNNY that way--LOL
