nice to hear

Nice to hear from you you guys in the big u.s.a,my car is the "sit up n beg" model as it is known over here,you probably know the type i mean! I have not built a rod before but have lots of experience as i:ve restored too many v.w. beetles and ones for friends too! My car is all original steel and was bought from an auction as a restorer went into liquidation,The car i intended on buying was a 1950 ford v8 pilot,but on viewing was too far gone to safe from the dreaded rust bug so i came away with two ford prefects instead.whats you car like? :rolleyes:

My car is definitely NOT A FORD! But I do like vw bugs. I have always wanted to own a bug. There are plenty of ford fans on this site. :rolleyes: Maybe you can get some pics up.

A Prefect - Far Out! I've just Registered after a long retirement from Rodding. My cousin and I put a 352 Caddy Engine with a Paxton Super Charger originally out of a Studabaker in a Prefect back in the mid 60's. Needless to say it was a BLAST and a Very Good Looking Street Rod. WelCome and Good luck with yur project

Hi, what are your plans for the prefect? I recently bought a '51 and am a bit undecided on the project, either way I want it to end with a v8 but i gotta get a new chassis 1st. Let me know how you get on or if you have any tips, thanks.
