Yes, the Ford is currently grundgy. We pulled it out of a guys backyard late last fall. It'll be our main project this summer besides a couple things with my MSM.

More photos will follow of the ford I'm sure.. Not much to see right now as we have it all ripped apart and on jack stands!

But . . . that's what we like to see!

Here's my Sport Fury, FWIW. We're all-around car people here.

Jason, I know that this is unusual and uncomfortable for you, but it's ok to talk to girls just like other normal people.

Nice Fury!

I dug up some photos... I'll post more as the project progresses this summer!

Before the tear down (we have the front bumper):


As it sits in our cold garage.. .waiting...:




Has a running flathead V8, but the tranny was out. Replacing with a 5 speed that a friend had laying around... She's a hot mess

Welcome to the forum! This is Chris. I don't have as much time as I used to (job and kids), but it is a great forum. I know her and can attest that she is indeed an actual girl. Let me know when you get the MS setup and take your car to Cody's dyno, I would love to be there. And you are really going to need to go to Gingerman with us this spring or summer!

Cool Ford. Amazing condition, especially considering your location. That's going to clean up beautifully. Love the old flatheads.

Haha thanks for your testament Chris. We will let you know when we hook up the the dyno! Just getting all my parts on order now... I have about $500 more to go... I hope to get the MSM out a lot more this summer. I gotta catch up after last summer's hecticness.

Will do! I may or may not venture downstate this year. Depends on work.

Thanks for the pics of the Ford. She's rough, but I've seen worse brought back. What kind of shape is the interior?

Are you planning on stock/restoration or more of a hotrod?

What interior? ... No seriously. Floor boards had some rot, repairing now. Loads of mouse crap was in the headliner (that was fun). The dash and everything was actually in really good shape. It will be re-painted as the paint is peeling, that's it. Glass all good except one cracked window (flat glass, fortunately cheap to fix). Didn't come with front bench seat but we found one downstate waiting to be picked up. Fortunatley have all the chrome interior pieces (missing one chrome rock guard piece for the pass. rear fender). Both seats will need to be re-upholstered.

It will be restored as a traditional 50's hot rod.

Welcome, it's always nice to see girls into cars. my wife once came into the garage after i added new wheels, a pallet of parts, and sheet metal to a car i used to own and ask me why i hadn't changed anything. her idea of customizing a car is a stick figure family, which i vetoed because not gay.

Nice looking '94 you have there! Looks like it eats stick figure families for lunch.

I loathe stick figure families...
