Zed towed this truck over 10 years ago for a lady, at that time he begged her to sell it to him and she refused. He always talked about this truck, and one day I was looking thru Craigs list and seen this truck, thinking it was pretty cool with a built flathead and all ,I emailed it to Zed, (not knowing that that was the truck he has been talking about all these years) He was crazed !!!!he made it down that day to buy it . it was in the same spot he dropped it over 10 years ago. WAIT TO SEE THE PAINT THE KID IS GOING TO LAY OUT ON THIS ONE!!!!!!

Was just thinking of a good old friend. This guy is the guru of old Fords He is the master of old multi carb set ups, He has done many for us and they are always works of art!! He has been around the drag racing seen for a long time ,he raced a front engine dragster back in the 60,s He has built many 32 thru 34 fords ,his project now is a 34 delivery. A machinist by trade he is a perfectionist, everything he does is top knotch, You may have seen him at the swap meets ,he is the guy with all the nice clean old original Ford parts, and the 70,s prices. Can't wait to ride in that 34 JACK
The year is around 1963 and a couple of my uncles and Ron Fout have been racing for a few years now, So they decide to team up and build a blown injected hemi 41 willys ,they build one hell of a car and run it until about 1969 , then sell it , the hemi goes and a big block chevy is put in, it is seen a couple of times at the world of wheels sporting the name night prowler on the door, then it drops out of site , recently Chris posts a responce on one of Jesse James posts on the H.A.M.B., and that sets the wheels in motion and wallllaaaa the car is here in Rocford , I call Ron and we go out to see it . Now he built this car in 1963 and it is almost the same way it was back in 63, it has the same interior , the same old cracked lacqure paint same olds rear end, same blue windows, The guy who owns it now is one of the coolest dudes you can ever meet, we spent hours in his garage ,Ron brought some old 8 mm movies of the car, and Bill talked about how the car runs now!! ( O did I mention that this old steel willys gasser still runs in the 10,s) There is a lot more to this storie and the people behind it ,i will try to tell bits and pieces in the future.
