Hot rods, old cars, customs and the such... without friends, it would be a lonely ride. It's amazing how much people are willing to help just for the sake of having another friend on the road with a neat old car. We have had a lot of luck with people supporting our project with time, advice or just kind words.

Now we have even made new friends just by the virtue of going to grab some lunch! A recent trip to Rico's Tacos Lupe led to the spotting of a really fresh F1. Lowered, white walls, and a tough sounding Flathead. Most impressive? This sharp looking 1950 is a DAILY DRIVER! That's doing it right.

Speaking of friends, the shop can get a little lonely without some helping hands. This is how the car bug is planted.

You can also see a small piece of our next project in that first photo. Good thing Lil' Buddy has had his tetanus shot.

Happy feet.

Patience is a virtue... A virtue we haven't had much luck with. We kept putting off the alignment with each new piece of the puzzle. This of course destroyed the already very sad front tires.

Solution: Wide Whites! The F100 is now properly aligned, and feels great. Not bad looking either!

Daily Driving.

It's official, Spring has sprung! The weather has now permitted driving, and ice on the road seems to be a memory for the next few months.

So far this spring: My brother came to visit, as well as our good friend Klem. Being the Midwest, those first few nice days of March led to an impromptu ice storm. One of the hazards of daily driving the ol' F100 is walking out to a snow covered truck!

Luckily the Ol' F100 seemed unfazed by the ordeal. Chris, however, seems less happy to be left in the elements.
