"Hi,  Here are the pic that was sent to me from chuck. He took very good care of his car it was shipped to me last week. see you at the bash at the beach.

p.s we can use the DISCOUNT TIRE CO. parking lot on Gratiot for the Gratiot car cruse. I am the manager of the store last year I was out of town and Harry Brown was using the lot for fords only.  Just to let you know my plans for the car; first the brown crush interior must go.  Also my floor shifter and 460 ci will be going in and the 391 gears soon but for now its good to be driving a old ford again.
