Em's first Ford Hot Rod

Well, I made it 16 days before I got back into the hobby and this time I'm even more lost than ever because I have only owned one Ford in my life and it was a PU with a 292 that I never spun a wrench on.

Anyhow, I bought this pretty sound little '62 Fairlane that is lowered (too much but I'll attack that later), has a mild cam, roller rockers and average paint (not show quality but protects the tin). Several small things such as an oil leak that I've got to find the location of and an exhaust system that's got to be changed. It has cherry bombs with NASCAR styled side exhaust that exit infront of the right rear tire. That was the "only" thing that drug when we loaded and unloaded it - - grrrrrrr I'm thinking flow masters and then out the back with the tips. The Rat's Nest in the engine bay needs major cleaning up and routing also.

Here's a very short video at idle.

Do they have support groups for Ford Newbies that are 71 years old?
