I am an old, 54 year old man, hence the name. 40 years ago my father a car dealer brought me a 23 metal bucket to drive for a while. By todays standards it was an older build, in 1971.
at 14 and no drivers card, i was watched heavily.one burnout too many, the car was gone. just bought a homemade tube frame with a 27 t drag body on it, a good start rolling chassis for little dollars. 350- 350 located to install, total body prepped but not installed in dallas to go pick up. have some questions, identifying front end, 34 chevy pu? will post pics when pick up car in a week, here locally. thanks, gonna sell my ski boat to fund a real ride...skip

Welcome aboard, and once you do a T, you'll be set free. The power to weight ratio is very addicting.

OldSkip, you may have told too many people about that T. Someone may have seen your post and went first. !!!! I know Murphy real well and his laws.
