 You guys have been seeing the '56 Ford F-100 chassis with the Volare frontend showup in the magazine's tech features in such hits as "Rust is Creepy" to name one. Well, now

you get to see the '53 Ford F-100 body that's going on top.


 Tony AKA "The Specialist" helped me haul the '53 F-100 out of my old truck dungeon located somewhere on the Newport Coast (Yeah, I know it's a high rent district, but I gotta store my trucks somewhere) and haul it over to his buddy "Super" Steve's bodyshop where we'll be blowing the cab off the frame and hauling it to Orange County Sandblasting where Don and his crew will make the old girl look like a brand-new Delorean. Then we're hauling it back to "Super" Steve's and burying it in Summit Racing's epoxy primer designed to go over bare steel. its a DTM. Okay, little shavers I got get outta here and finish the July 09 issue, but check out the photos Tony shot for me so I could show you guys what's happening around the CCT digs.

It's going to make a great project, the body seems to be decent, other than the odd cancer in the corner, nothing a good welder and air cutter would'nt fix.
