Well, been lurking for a while, posted a couple times, figured I better introduce myself.

My names Wade, I live in Utah, just moved back from TN about a year ago. I love hot rods, vintage military vehicles, aviation, and pretty much anything from the '40's. I've been married to the love of my life for nearly 11 years, and have 4 kids that love the same things I do. :) I'm a volly firefighter, Active in the Civil Air Patrol, and a student, as well as having a full time job so sadly not much time or money for my habit :(

My current "rod" if I can stretch the term that much is a '49 Ford F-2 with a flathead V-8 and a four spd. It has just over 21,000 original miles on it!!! It sat in a field in NV for 47 years before I got it, and started right up with a new battery and gas, show me a new car you could do that with. Sadly, haven't been able to do much with it yet, but I'd like to drop it down a bit at the very least. I've been toying with the idea of going full fenderless and chopping it, but hate to start something that in depth till I have more time. Anyway, thats the gist of me for now, look forward to reading coments and getting to know ya'll more in the future.

Thanks MR, I'm gonna need it. I really like the old girl, and she's got a good history like you said. I just hope that I can make her into what I want her to be.
