Hey Cletus, that is a really cool car man!!!! It looks like a serious gangster mobile! I love the color too.

To post a picture you need to find a photo you like on the web, then when you start your posting, click the button in the tool bar called "insert/edit image". Copy the web URL of your photo in the URL field, name the photo and then click "insert". Done! Todd sent me instructions on how to to it when I kept messing up.

These cars are expensive I see. About $45K! I hope you win Powerball and get one!

Here's my honor to you Cletus (I hope you like it):

        Yeah,they are VERY expensive,but much more fun than the cars built today.I'm crazy for custom cars & trucks.I have a '55 Ford panel truck that I've been building for the past few years.I don't see myself ever getting it finished because of the cost.I'd be happy to just get it back on the road.

            Cletus, these are the cars that my father drove and he said that the old cars were built better than today's cars too. I never heard of a Ford Panel Truck either but I found one. You've got great taste in cars. Are you into retro cars or did you grow up on those days?

            I hope you get yours finished and back on the road soon. This baby is sweet!!!

                Haymaker & Cletus,

                I'm not an SUV owner but I really like the front grill and the dark windows on this 2010 Lincoln MKX. I would definetly buy one of these just because I love the way it looks. What do you guys think?

                  1955 Ford Panel Truck

                  golpher1960,Your dad sounds like a guy I'd like to meet & talk cars with.Ford panel trucks of the mid-50's are pretty rare.They built less than 10,000 in 1955.They built a few more of them in 1954 & 1953.You have to look pretty close at them to tell what year they are.Ford also built a built a panel in 1956 with a different A-pillar (the pillar at the front of the door)Some people think that the '56 is a nicer looking truck but I think the real reason they like it is it makes it easier to chop the top.Just to give you an idea what it costs to restore an older truck,the parking lights lenses alone costs over $100.The chrome pieces that the parking lights are set in are another $100 apiece.That chrome front bumper costs about $400 (these are 1995 prices).I'm sure that the prices have gone up.There are hundreds of parts on the panel truck that will need to be replaced to make the truck look as nice the one in your picture.Chrome gets pitted so a person will either have to have many parts rechromed or buy new parts like mirrors and door handles and ford badges and tailight housings and the list goes on & on.Restoring a car or truck ain't for the week of heart!My panel has a fiberglass front end that tilts forward to show off the engine.I paid over $1000.00 for it in 2001.I'd hate to think what it would cost today.I've got over $10,000 dollars in it and its just taking up space in my garage.I'll need to win a lottery just to finish it.~;)

Good luck with your's that is in your garage. There's $113M up for grabs tonight in Powerball, I hope you've got a ticket! Good luck!

                      Next time you are driving down the road and you see an old car that obviously has been restored (or hot rodded),just think back to this conversation and remember that some people prefer to drive old cars,not because they are cheaper to drive than todays cars,but because they enjoy the beauty of the cars of yesterday.Cars have a beauty about them that is timeless.Us car lovers are as passionate about our cars as you are about your golf courses.We know that not everyone loves cars as much as we do,but we also know that many,many people love to look at our cars and reminence (sp?) about years gone by.Thats part of the fun,putting a smile on all those faces.When you are driving down the road and you happen to see a cruise in or a car show,stop to look at the cars (most car shows are free to the public) and talk to the owners of the cars.You'll find that they are a friendly bunch of guys and gals that would love to tell you about their car.Take care.And yes,I have a ticket for tonights Poweball drawing.
