I haven't posted anything because as the saying goes, If I don't say anything you might think I'm stupid, but if I do say something you'll know for sure. I'm working on a '48 Ford PU that I've owned since '63 and am the second owner. It's going to look somewhat stock, if you call a loaded flathead, dropped axle and custom paint stock. I've been waiting about 20 years to start this project and it's going to be a lot of fun, I hope.
Bye for now.

Whats not to understand?

Those are terms I picked up when I was a youngster back in the 50's and 60's from hotrodders that had migrated back to the midwest and settled in my area. They were origionally from Southern California.

Dictionary time:

Reet: just a hard way of saying sweet or fancy

Kemp: a somewhat famous customizer way back when, using his name in referance to a set of wheels meant it was a sharp looking ride.

Double Throw Down: another way of saying High Tech.

Dont feel bad, you arent the only one thats asked me that question. I figured more of us gray beards would have known those expressions, especially mid west and westerners.
