Re: Electric Power Brakes,,?

Roy would have told you: "You don't need no stinkin' brake booster! Get your lazy butt to the gym and work on those leg muscles, wuss!" That's basically what he told me when I introduced myself on the forum and mentioned that I was considering a PS and PB conversion. :lol: :lol: :lol: Good ol' Roy, ...

Re: Turn back the calendar to 1969

You must have been rich!! $125 paint AND mag wheels? I’m jealous. Oh yeah, I was rollin' in it! :lol: When I bought the car it had chrome reverses on it.

Re: Turn back the calendar to 1969

Those are great pics of a really cool car! My clock only turns back to 1970 when I bought my first Cyclone. The pics aren't as good as yours, and are from 1973, but she was my pride and joy. :D 8) Like you, I had one of those expensive paint jobs, too. Paid a friend's brother $125 to paint her. Four...

Re: Dash pad replacement

I just did mine, how It went is on my build thread. I got mine from Summit for the free shipping. A Dashes Direct, fits really good except it was a little short on the pass end, but not really noticeable. I am happy with it! This is a link to the page in Lou's thread that he mentions. I bookmarked ...

It looks identical to my first Cyclone, too, except mine had American mags.

The old chain trick might work well. Haven't seen that one in a very long time.
I had a chain on my first Comet. That was circa 1972. 8)

Re: ... On Donner, On Blitzen, On COMET and...

Like the Ranchero, like the 8N (?) I think that's a later model, Joe. The 8N had vertical bars on the grill. Here's a little Christmas Eve whimsey for you. Us Comet guys aren't the only ones that like to tweak our Ford rides. Santa could really pull his sleigh with one of these. :lol: https://youtu...
