  • CRUISE IN Season

    Went to a cruise in today. Haven't cleaned my 53 in about 3 months, so no pictures of it. My wife said I must wash it and get all the dirt, hand prints and grease off. Plus it had a film of dust. My reply: I'll tellem it's a barn find ! LOL anyway I did forget to take pictures of my car so I posted the cruise in here, since there were no Studes.

    I didn't take pictures of the new Mustangs and Mopars, and several high dollar cars. Don't impress me. Anyway no 1 here would have scared me to try and drive :

    I have been known to drive cars that looked worse, BUT, once I looked under the hood, Rat Rod, was forgotten, but Rat Nest came to mind:

    In contrast to this, this cool old man came in a 53 Ford, and he explained he had all the decals and he was gonna repaint his engine compartment before long, We will see next time :

    That "53 Ford" has the new for 54, overhead valve engine, so it was probably a 54.
