    Well.. i just wanted to post up some pics of the family tradition project. My Grandpa, Dad, and i are rebuilding this fine looking 55 f-100 up.. It is in mock up stage right now.. so it's quite a ways from being finished.. Anyways it has a pretty well built 390, a custom frame with 4 link rear, indipendent susp. up front, and coilovers all the way around.. Has a ford 9 inch rear.. This truck was originally purchaced by my great great grandfather back in 55.. Thats why we call it the family tradition.. here are the pics..

    Thats great!! Wish I lived near my dad, much less really had a project with him.

    Almost started working over a 64 Chevy pickup that my grandpa bought new but it was too rusty and I needed a daily driver fast. Wish I had gotten my hands on it before he gave it away.:doah:

    Nice truck!!!!! About 20 years ago, I cheated and put a 50 F1 on a 74 Ranchero frame. It sure rode a bunch better than the F1 suspension.
