Hello, New to HCS

Hello. My name is Ed and am new to HCS. I live in Albertville. I found your site while searching for cruise-ins. Great site!
My vehicle is a '59 Thames 300e hot rod. It is a sedan delivery that was built by Ford of England. It is powered by a 454 Chevy with turbo 350 trans. I have only had it driveable since September. I took it to the Village at Providence show recently. It looks rough now but will get better with time.(work in progress). Will try to post pic later. I am building my car to cruise and love doing it.

Hey Ed. Welcome. Looks like a fun car. Going to need wheelie bars?

Thanks HOSS429 for posting the pic!! That would be my car. I knew there were some pics taken. Appreciate kind words. To G_Horneck: It is pretty quick but traction is a prob. If it ever hooks up might need the bars. Thanks.

This was my favourite car at the show :-) I spotted it across the field and couldn't believe someone had brought an Anglia (close enough)! An old friend of mine in England, also named Ed, has a much modified 100E, with a well tuned pre X-Flow 1500, Weber carbs, etc. Classic old school Brit tuning. Handles beautifully. I very nearly bought it from him in the eighties, and am so glad I didn't as he did so much more with it than I ever would have. Have a look...

It even ended up as a Corgi model...

Welcome to the local car community, Ed. Your car is dead cool, painted, finished, or not.

Finally figured out posting pics. They are a little small, but that is an accomplishment for me (Technology challanged individual). Thanks HOSS for the additional pic. Yours are much better!

My plan is to paint it yellow (2010 Camaro Ralley Yellow). I tested the color on the dash panels in the pic. May do some type of graphic on the side panels also, not sure.

Was just looking at the CBI website. I will try to make it if my car is together. Was planning to start building radiator support and hood hinge mounting. May wait about removing anything till later. Will have to work 10 hour days this week & don't leave much time to work on car

Hey Ed!

Welcome aboard!

Just tell everyone it is a ratrod until you get it painted

Hope to be able to see your ride soon, I have something
similar in my "idea box".

Thanks for the welcome, RatTrap! Several people have told me they would leave it like it is and clear it so it would not rust. It actually won a second place RatRod trophy at one of the first meets I took it to. Been working on it all week. Relocated radiator mount & removed the mechanical fan. Installed a high CFM electric fan. Hope it will run cooler when weather is warm. Going to try to make it to CBI Sat. Hope to see you there. Look forward to seeing your "idea".

While really cool, and awesome...the HAMB might be a tough place to squeeze into. The board is amazing, full of info, and I love that you can speak how you want to. They may love it or hate it, and they will definitely let you know either way.

Thanks DreDay256. I appreciate it. Thanks for the heads up on the HAMB GrantH. One thing I have always done in building my cars is always do it the way I like it. If someone else doesn't appreciate my effort, so what! Again, I do appreciate the welcome here, thanks.
