Default Old Heavy Metal, By: Ford!!!

so yea i went shopping for a beater car today and i didnt exactly buy one... next to the car i was looking at was a pile of tires and a rag that was a car cover. i look at little more and find it to be a old '65 T-Bird. i asked the guy how much he says $250... i said sold! he even dropped it off at my house! it will be my ratrod project!

Dayamn, that thing is ROUGH. But it looks do-able. Long-term project or turn around for a small profit?

its really in good shape considering its a '65. im going to be building it into my ratrod weekend fun car. as soon as i go threw the brakes, get it running again, and get new tires... i will drive it around! i dont plan on ever getting rid of this one, i've made mistakes of selling my older cars and then regret it down the road.
