    I was always thrilled at the ZZ Top Hot Rod. My Son-in-law is a talented luthier so I asked him to match my 33 Ford with a Stratocaster style guitar. He built this over a period of time. It was the first time he ever matched the autobody colors and I think his work turned out extraordinary. He still needs to set the guitar up so I haven’t got my hands on it yet but I am seriously stoked about the end result. Some of the details aside form the obvious Ethyl peghead, the 33 on the body also includes the grear shit knobs, and the pick guard made like a 33-34 Ford grill. The electronics are high end. I asm expecting this to be a killer guitar.

First, aeration in the fuel from the poorly installed return line had reduced quite a bit. The car was a beast coming off the light. Second, I'm getting better at launching. 5.0 Mustangs are no joke, I was very proud to hang with him 1n 1-2.


    They sure aren't, off the assembly line 460Hp 7.2k. Like your ride wheel mounted front fenders nice touch.

    Is that a Hurst motor mount sure looks like it. Which to build first? Think, which car has the most parts & best body of the 2.

    Curious, are you building or having a shop build it?

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    We’ve also got a 32 Roadster going. I showed the molding and demolding in earlier posts. We have the frame under if and the shop is building the front suspension.

    Replumbed the fuel filler line recently. First chance I’ve had to get the car out and blow the dust off it
