What did you do to your Dent today

Not open for further replies.
I went to the F100 Supernationals on Saturday. I took some photos which can be seen on another forum and just walked the show. I parked my dent with the spectator cars and that is the photo I posted here. Interesting though was the fact that my truck wasn't alone out there. There were a lot of really nice vintage Fords that were driven in by other spectators. One could have almost just skipped the entry fee and walked the parking lot!! smilieFordlogo

Today my little green machine is at the doctor getting valve seals replaced. Just a little too much smoking. Hope we can get her to quit the habit....

Aren't they a bit small to be driving those things? :)

Very cute kids and for sure Ford Truck fanatics like dad!

Donald.

Just a tad small....a few more years and they'll be cruising around town in these for sure!

You can see that at most car shows up here in Maine also.....lots of old steel enthusiasts want to see other rides, but don't necessarily want to or have time to enter the show.

The very first year we bought the 77, we entered 6 shows that summer and it's an ALL DAY event from 6 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon.
 
Ken, I was seriously thinking of entering my green machine but there is really nothing special about it other than it is pretty original, almost like going back in time.
But there are some things I want to do to the truck before I do enter it. That and it was my daughters birthday and we had plans for later that day. I think it would be a blast to enter a show like that. It would be my first!!

You'd be surprised at the huge attraction to an original classic....I bet your rig would do just fine in any competition.

Finally got around to changing the transmission fluid and filter. Drained and refilled the TC. First time doing it so I was a bit nervous. Went pretty well but its still having issues shifting. Thinking it might be the modulator. We will see after tonight.

Is it just slow on shifting?

^^^the leak was a loose hose clamp on the dual filters. ....he said I should have braided lines and expandable pressure fittings just like the rest of the engine already has instead of the current rubber hose and clamps....I concurred and he's ordering the parts....it'll look better also,not that anyone will notice that anyways....except ME!
