My 56 F-100 has the stock drums (everything rebuilt or new) on it. I have a power booster and dual master under the floor. They work fine. I have had no issues with them fading (so far). I have even made a couple of emergency stops (idiot old people around here).

I am not saying that disks are not better. They are just an expense I cannot afford for a long long time.

I do not drive hard, since I have the original drivetrain. 55-60 is top speed on level ground.
