S-3...No, The computer showed trucks back to `39....So he knew there were Ford trucks then...They just didn`t build cars yet :?  ( guess I need to get 5 titles ammended to show the correct years)

Jerry, I'll assume that the book didn't go back that far -- and that's why the young lad said that Ford didn't make cars back then.  If it ain't in the book then it don't exist and never did - right?

Slim, you must be old, a young lad would never use a book :-o

I recalled a remark from an SCCA publication long ago about the timing crew:

These are the souls that time men's tries.

Reminds of the time I went to NAPA  to get a belt for the drill press..........." I need a v-belt in this width, Onlt 1 1/2 - 2 inches longer"   Counter guy " If you give me the make ,model and year...I can give you the exact replacement"   Me..." It`s a 1937 Atlas Model 324 drill press"     Counter guy..." How long did you need that" ?  Me (being my usual smart a$$ self)  " I`ll need it for a long time...It`s going on my drill press"

Why did the Rat-Rod builder cross the road????...Because the weld broke where he had attached the galvanized pipe fitting to the rusty, bent crow bar he used for a drag link :)  ( not a big fan of rat rods)
