    I was driving around the other day and saw this awesome old ford but have not been able to it. The best description I can give is that it looks a little like the old vw bus trucks. Does anyone know what I am refering to?

    Has a center mounted motor in the cabin..can only imagine how much heat it can put off and how uncomfortable the heat was during the summer with no AC.

    My brother used the dropped straight axle out of an Econoline pick-up to build a low budget 600 horse power B/ Gas drag car. It did not steer too good, but ran like hell, 12.50s @ 125 mph.
