    Tom, I see you have gotten a soft top for your hot rod. I am thinking about getting one myself. How do you like yours? It seems there is some debate about this, but can you put the top in the trunk without modifying the supplied aluminum sides?

    Hey Tom I just noticed you sent me a message regarding upper ball joints. I have not noticed any wear on ball joints in just over 18,000 miles. I will keep an eye out for any wear. I have not been driving much as the weather has been ugly. I started another project, 1938 Ford pickup one ton express and it's going slow. Nice to here from you and hope all is well.....

    Tom,
    Very cool about finding a long lost cousin. I have to admit I'm not that up on my genealogy except to say my Great Great grandfather had 3 brothers that arrived from Scotland. Two stayed in Utah and the other went to Alberta. I'm going to have to look now. Thanks for the note.
