Do you know how many parts are in a Falcon Tailgate? [December 5, 2013] views: 3745 Answer: Alot. Do you know how many aren't available new? You guessed it: Alot. So, every time I think I have this thing DONE... I'm not.

But

I'm almost there! Window goes up and ...

Ford 4-Lug Disc Brake Kit from Wilwood [July 16, 2013] views: 4141 Christmas came in JULY today when I got my order from Wilwood. I met a few Wilwood guys here and there at SEMA and at SEMA's MPMC event in SoCal. When I found out they started offering a 4-lug ...
1963 Ford Falcon Shelby Drop Done [July 1, 2013] views: 4937 I've been meaning to do this for a long time. Now that it's late June/July and 115+ in Arizona, I finally got around to it. Wish I could go for a test drive to see how it feels, but going by ...
Stainless Steel Engine Bolt Kit [June 10, 2013] views: 4512 So of course I have to polish the ones you can see! (almost all of them except the ones for the oil pan...)

Should look cool against a gloss black engine.

How Cool is this? Wagon Tailgate Emblem [June 10, 2013] views: 4664 I'll do a how-to on this, but had to post this picture. This is the tailgate emblem for my Falcon Wagon. I had given some thought to welding the holes for this piece, then thought, no... all the ...
WHY!? AT Pan Gasket Pain [May 28, 2013] views: 4570 Can't believe what a pain this has been. Got everything put back together and the pan gasket is still leaking. Thought I did everything right putting it back together, even used a torque wrench to ...
AT Cooler hook up - Clean and Reliable [May 28, 2013] views: 1861 Finally! Got the AT Cooler back in and plumbed. It's such a tight fit in there, it was a true pain in the ass! But, in the end, I used some -6 AN style fittings with push-on hose style backs. ...
Hold Your Dipstick [May 6, 2013] views: 1553 There's an embarrasingly long list of stuff I've been meaning to do to my roadster. Never enough time in the day, I guess. Or maybe just not on the top of my list of importance?

So I ...

I'll never buy Champion Spark Plugs again! [May 6, 2013] views: 1205 My roadster sounded like it wasn't running on all cylinders. When an 8's running on 7, you can sometimes miss it at idle, but when a 4-banger's on 3, you can't miss it! So I decided to check the ...
Been Too Long - A/T back in Bonnie [April 30, 2013] views: 1008 It'd been too long! I've had a new front pump seal for a long time (fingers crossed that's where the leak was... it must be!) but haven't spent any time out in the garage. The weather is too nice ...
2.3 Ford Four Cylinder info [April 9, 2008] views: 950 I know it's not period correct, but it's a pretty easy engine to use 'cause of availability. It's served me well. I decided to post my 2 cents here for everyone. I don't claim to be an expert, ...
Have you seen me? [September 12, 2007] views: 847 Do you have any information about this car? It was my dad's and I'd really like to know what happened to it.

Thank you!

Learning The Gimp [September 2, 2007] views: 878 I want to be a better photographer than I am now, that's for sure, but I've got a few decent shots. I like to take pictures of my car, then put crazy sunset's behind them. I'm just barely ...
