It should make for some interesting moments in traffic ,for anyone catching up to it.If you leave the headlights functional it should cure any tailgaters. As a kid I vaguely recall a story involving a "pushme-pullyou" but you will no doubt get better ideas for a name.'Neat project,be sure to show us lots of pictures.Good luck with it! Bud

And it sound's like you might have to take that vet out of your Avatar,And put a pinto or something with ''FORD'' across the hood there..That is a Chevy you have there now,Isn't it...LOL Man I'm just joking with you..It feel's good to smile,After what I had to see today..
you guys crack me up. .hey,if you take it to the drags as a ford and start having trouble keeping up, you can alway turn it around and try again. ...but thats about the only way a chevy cant pass a ford...welding it to the back but then again the back might try to pass and jack knife the whole project...so mabee it's best to keep it all ford but if the chevy cab is going foward you can always call it a "rescued ranger" ...mabee you'll need two names ...depending on which one is going forward. Ether way it would make a great get away car for a bank job. ..it was a ford no a chevy..it went that way no this way.

I'd put that 'Vette' up against everything 'street' driven around here.

Both times to the two dyno shops around here it has been towed by a 'flat bed', 'Ford' Powered tow truck. Only because of the 'wheel flares' and paint job added years ago. LOL
that vette Got a 428 cobra jet in it? HaHaHa,...Now that would Pisseverybodyoff...get the rope...LOL

Just did a road trip from Sacramento to Wisconsin and ran into a back to back '50s olds in Wyoming that was used as an ad for a car dealer there back in the day. Wish I had a pic of it. Nice build!

They had a Ford here at the drag's that was Beating everyone there..And Speedydeedy said.. I bet theirs a Chevy motor in that car. So we went see it in the pit area,And sure enough it had a Chevy motor in it.

This remind's to email someone. He wants to make a Ford Ranger look like a 'Big Rig', complete with the trailer and all.
