My name is Rick, I'm 61, from Warren, Ohio and a hot rodder since I can remember.
I've had a 61 Impala convertible (327, 4 speed), 57 210 2 door sedan (327, 4 speed), 65 Vette roadster for 30 years (4 speed, several 327's, one 302, several 350's........), a 63 Biscayne 2 door factory air car (SB 400, 4 speed)
Currently building a 27 T Roadster on 31 A Rails (327, 4 speed.....notice a trend here?)
I've obviously built mostly Chevy stuff, but it's not any kind of brand loyalty, it just kind of worked out that way. Most of my regular drivers over the last 25 years have been Fords and Dodges. I currently have a very clean 97 Dakota 4x4. I hated the six so about 5 years ago I swapped in a 360....I can't leave anything alone.
Anyway, that's the quick version...look forward to sharing with you guys...
