Newbie

My Father and I purchased a 40 Ford Coupe, a car that he has wanted since he was 17 years old. We took it to the Street Rod Nationals last year in Louisville KY and a couple of local shows here in the Nashville TN area. It has a Flathead 85 horse...with two new Stromberg 97 carbs, 6 volt system, offy heads and intake and a 3/4 cam. We have had some difficulty with the engine running properly, but we are having a blast.
