1948 ford 2dr sedan

When i was 16 yr old (1957) a friend had a1948 ford 2dr sedan. Well he was going to build a hot rod. You know put in a 57 chev duntoff dual quad 283. Well one night before we tore the old flat head out 4 of us decided we would drive the ol flathead until we blew it up. So we got a couple of six packs and took to the road. the four of us took turns driving that flathead any way we could to blow er up. As I remember the top speed was around 65, left her in first gear with the pedal to the metal for soooo long and she just kept a going. So after four hours or so and some more six pacs. We drove the car back to the house and we all went home to bed.
