    My buddy bought that about 10 years ago here in Washington... it has been ABUSED every since. It was sitting in his garage for about 5 of those 10, then I helped him get it running and he blew it up, and it sat in that field for about a year w/ no top, tarp, etc... until I talked him out of it about 2 weeks ago... now it is mine, ALL MINE!!!!! Going to take alot of work/$$ to put back together, but it will be worth it in the end.

    They are probably 1/2 tread, but I have owned Thornbirds before and they are pretty much worthless even when they are new... but they do look cool! I am going eventually when I get it all rebuilt run a set of 33x12.50's... probalby like a ProComp or BFG or something... but I may keep the 'birds just to practice smoke shows in the street when I get the 351 Cleveland built for it! It will be a long time in the making... it is going to get put in the shop and not come out until it is a full frame off restomod. Hell, it will be the first Purdy thing I have ever owned!!

    Of the Frrd fambly, the EB's are one of the few things I don't mind. They're cute, like Scouts :D

    And those roadster doors are sweeeeeeeeeeet ... I wanna do up my spare set of door shells that way ('cept, of course, in sheet metal, as I'm no good with fiberglass :) )
