A member left a Rainier Chapter card on my windshield when my red '65 HT was parked across from the Tractor Tavern in Ballard.

The car is a complete resto-mod down to bare metal throughout. It has an RRS front end with power steering, a Ford Racing 320hp 302 engine, Lentech AOD transmission, and interior by Cedardale in Mt. Vernon.

My 2nd '65 HT is tropical turquoise with Wimpleton white vinyl top, stock 2-tone turquoise interior, front disc brakes, Flaming River quick-steer power steering, stock '89 Mustang 5.0 HO engine, and stock AOD transmission. My wife requests I sell this car to make room for her own in our garage.

Welcome aboard Jay. I to am planning on an RRS steering assembly. I'll be ordering mine in a few weeks. I have a KRC steering pump on the way now.

Post some photos of your car. We'd love to see it.

Hey Jay,

Hope all is well with you and it's good to see you stumbled onto the site... though Ballard's a long way from up north where you live. It was probably Kenny or Patrick who carded you, since they live in Ballard.

I remember last time we talked (when you in my office about your CT) that you were going to sell your other car. Still no bites, huh? Well, maybe after all this election stuff is over and people start to settle down again it'll happen. Feel free to post some pictures of it in our "advertising your car" section below. Who knows who'll wander through.

Be sure to hang around. We'd love to have your input on all things Falcon.

Welcome Jay! I think that was me who stuck the card on your car. On 9/17 I was at the Tractor to see Slaid Cleaves (great show) and noticed your ride on a smoke break.

Glad to see those things work!! Hope to see you around.
