Hi folks, I have been a member here for about six months and this is my first post. I have been sitting on the fence watching and learning.
I am fairly new to rodding. I fished competitively for about 13 years and got tired of the politics. Then decided I would now finally build a rod now that the kids have left the nest.
I built a little British Ford (Thames E83W) truck. I started it April of 2004 and drove it out of the garage September 8 last fall.
I busted my butt to get it done. I did a pile of body mods, custom tube frame and built a new box for it in my garage. It has a 4.3L GM V-6 with a BDS 4-71 blower, T400 trans and Ford 9". I have shown it twice and got a number of plaques for it. Just a proud Papa all over again. Very Happy
Can't wait to get back on the road this spring after they clean the rocks off the street.

Russ

You've just stepped into one of the oldest Rod forums on the 'net.
I've been hangin' with the RRT since 1996, welcome aboard.

Guys, here's a picture of Russ' Thames

Welcome Russ. Glad you decided to jump into the group. Love those Brit cars/trucks. Especially when they have a proper engine in them. Your truck looks awesome in the pic, please post more pics.

I will see if I can post more pictures once I hit the 10 post mark as it says in the rules. Or maybe Mike has more in his bag of tricks.

I can't add a lot, I've only got the two angles from last weekends show, so here's the other end.
