I have wanted a 1956 ford f-100 since I was 14 years old. My neighbor did a resto-mod in his garage and I fell in love with his.
Fast forward many, many years to November 19th, 2005. I finally had the opportunity to purchase my truck. We (dad and I) drove all night from here in Northern Arkansas to the other side of Knoxville Tennessee and picked it up. Dad was so excited he drove all the way home by himself as soon as we had it loaded. (1240 miles round trip---driven straight through).
Its straight and solid. Its a running truck. I did some minor repairs and fluid changes once we got it here. Its all street legal and a blast to drive now.
Right now money is tight, but once things settle down a little it will have a modern drive train installed.
