My name is Drew and I live near Silverdale. I've owned a 66 Ranchero and 64 Futura since the mid-70s. The Ranchero is still in my possession but this summer I passed along the 64 to my new daughter-in-law in August as a wedding gift (she fell in love with it the first time she saw it). My son rolls a 63 wagon so it's still all in the family. I retired from the government after 35 years of maintaining nuclear submarines and now just work in my shop. I have raced in a 4 cylinder stock car class on paved ovals for nearly 15 years in the northwest and love it. I ran mustangs for a few years but built a new car based on the Merkur XR4ti platform three years ago because of the independent rear suspension. And now I'm planning to re-body the car with a Falcon body just because it's cool. Nothing like an old school-looking stock car. We take our cars to many cruises throughout the year and just have a blast.

Welcome Drew. Feel free to post some pictures of your cars - we like pictures. Hope to hear more about the swap. Sounds like a very interesting project.

Glad to have you on board Drew. I live up in Sequim so if your ever in the area swing on by the powder coat shop. Get that baby ready for summer it would be nice to have another close falcon to meet up at shows with. :BEER:
