Welcome from eastern Tennessee! ::welcome:: Looking forward to seeing the pictures of your project. I, too, am restoring a basket case. A friend, Bkdunha, told me I should part it out, but there were so few useable parts left, I decided I'd have to rebuild it, instead.


The Rickster, a 1973 Mach 1, being restored as a tribute to my brother who passed away with COVID in July 2020.

Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.

El Guapo, a 1986 F150, frame-off Resto-Mod.

Also, in the queue, a 1950 Ford F1 Panel truck and 1962 Falcon Ranchero

Hello from Mississippi. Good luck on your project. You'll find a lot of members here have started with a car that had a new color called RUST! Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Very knowledgeable folks here!



No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Thank you for all your replies,


Ok so ive been really busy at work,


Some brief history first:

I bought the car in the 90s, It was a cheap fastback with a 302, I was 17 at the time (41 now...).

We called her "The Judge".

I drove her for 5 years, stored her after college and went away to to finish my studies.

Life happened and i nearly forgot about it.

17 years later when i finally had the time to bring her back to life i disassembled it and decided to restomod it instead of restoring it.


I went at it completely different to what Ive seen or done before.

I'm almost finished on all the metal work and suspension and I'm almost ready to work on the engine, trans and axle.


I was going to wait to be completely finished before introducing myself, but kinda got scolded for posting before introducing myself hahah and i have a lot to share and ask.


I will start a build thread in two month or so with pictures of all my metal and suspension work.





This was me with a couple of buddies back in 1991-3 not sure:



Pictures of the carnage:









Thanks for reading,
