What's on the other side of that merc?

There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

That red Ford has a big V8 in it still but didn't look to see what it was, there is another 4 dr sitting facing it with a 250-L6 in it probably early '70s and I would guess rusted solid :( I thought I found the only one in that JY but I guess I was wrong.

There are a lot of neat old cars in that yard probably some from the '40s even (there is a Henry J sitting up by the "gate" now) there are a handful of early model Mustang sedans, most of them really bad, I think there is a '64 or so Corvair convertible sitting in there on top of another car, lots of old pickups and bunches and bunches of thorns.

See Ya,

I have an affinity for those early '60s F100 unibodies, I wish I had one but I also wish I had a million dollars.

The '62 I gave to my buddy was a SWB but not a Uni, if I still had that truck I might try to get at least the body off that one in the JY and move all the stuff over too it, my little F100 is the one vehicle I regret getting rid of (giving away) it had the police interceptor and AOD out of an 80s Crown Vic me and dad put in there.
