    I love doing full bare bones back to metal restos, thats exactly what i did with the 65 fairlane you brought over here. Im now onto a 63 chevy C10 fleetside. I do restomod instead of numbers matching back to stock as i prefer my own twist.
    Keep the photos coming Ray. Best thread for a while. Will keep us all dreaming.

    I,m like you numbers matching Whitehall tyres and hubcaps are not my thing I can appreciate them as very nice cars but I,m an old hotrodder and prefer an old look with modern steering brakes and given where i live a/c when I moved here 40 yrs ago all my daily's were most of what is in this collection and $2500 was a ton of money to pay for any tri five chevy or what's now an iconic muscle car they were just cheap old used cars that nobody wanted back then and there was a must have something or other for sale in the newspapers every day , about the only thing I,ve held onto is my 41 Willys which I bought 3 months after arriving here that had been my dream car since the age of 15 only reason I,ve kept it, still puts a smile on my face every time I look at it , the cars are all due to come out for a drive pretty soon I,ll get some more pics then . hope to reunite with the Fairlaneat one of the shows & visit my old mate Ian some time next year my trip for this year is off I,m afraid . cheers. RAY A

    Very cool Ray

    This is what I like about the USA! The ability to make a fortune and stay humble, enjoy your own culture history.
    He could of just bought a passle of Astons, Porsches and Fezzers.

    I will be at Tatton park in Cheshire and look forward to catching up with you and Ian. Should have couple of 60s c10 trucks with me too. I camp over so the beer is on me.

    its funny he does have a taste for certain what I call modern Ferraris and he owns a testerossa , a 328 a 360 , a 355 Spyder & a 460 Spyder ,a flawless 73 dino but he never drives any of those & I,m always teasing him that a real Ferrari has a 12 cylinder engine in front of the driver , when we go to the auctions in mote ray & Scottsdale he's looking at all the normal chevy ford stuff & I,m looking at Chrysler 300,s desotos stepdown Hudsons, old woodies and street rods , his favourite vehicle in his entire collection and the one he drives the most is a 72 chevy tow truck with a Holmes 440 boom its a minter of course and black his favourite colour and having grown up around old comers Bedfords thames traders and the like its one of mine too .

    That would cool. I have the photos of it in your yard over there and i have spoken to the former owner, a William J Domitili of La Honda. I still have the old screen with what looks like a bullet hole on the drivers side.
