Cruise-N-Milford 8-15-17

What started out as a drizzle day with a lot of clouds turned out to be a pleasant evening at Grill603 Cruise-N-Milford event. More rare and restored machines showed up. Another TVR that had been converted to run a Ford 5.0 Fuel Injected engine was there. This one is a 1986. I also had the opportunity to talk to a man that restored a 1950 Ford Pickup. He used Oak to reline the bed of the truck. That old Flat Head V8 just purred when he started it up. The work put into this project was amazing, and he joked about the fact that restoring some of the fenders and body parts cost more than replacing them. Now that it’s all done, the truck has it’s original parts instead of replacement parts. There was also a 1957 Truck that was un-restored, yet in great shape. There were less people there that evening, but I was able to talk to more people about there project cars than when the packing lot is over flowing into the next. We do need to than Sal’s Pizza shop for letting us use their lot for any overflow. The Kenworth truck was a actual body from a big rig, adapted to fit on an F350. I thought it was a kit, and the guy driving it snapped and pointed out the original rivets on the body. He did mention he made the hood all custom out of fiberglass. I don’t know if he started from scratch or cut one down to fit.
