Thanks...I was busted up pretty good,had the shit beaten out of me as I was flying through the air rolling over and took a couple dozen stitches to my face...I was much luckier than my truck and the other driver (he crossed the centerline)

They say what does not kill you makes you stronger...I am going to work on that....

Well..its just over a year ago I had my accident and I am up and running again at about 90%...My 67 Mustang goes for paint in a couple weeks and I am probably sending the 68 Mustang for paint right after as it is ready as well.Then I will concentrate on the Diamond T...I will be getting it running again in the next few weeks...I don't expect any problems other than rotten gas...I turn 55 in a few days and I have been looking at the old girl since I was 9......The smell of the oak framed cab brings back lots of memories........Cory

A couple accident pics..Truly built "Ford Tough"

update report....I am almost back to normal and back to working hard at things..The 67 has been finished and the 68 is in the paint shop.The Diamond T grille is in my shop and I hope to do the repairs in the next week or so.Then off to the chrome shop.

I am putting up another shop 40x50 in the spring.It will be heated and the new home for the two Mustangs,the Diamond T and the newly acquired Grizzly Truck.The Grizzly is #1 of 13 or 14 trucks.Soon to get a major rebuild and changed to four wheel drive and a 5spd..Like Pacific,Hayes and Challegers Grizzly's were built here in BC in my own back yard so to speak..

A little news on a very old thread...I have purchased a 2000 Cummins 4BT engine with a Eaton 5spd for the Diamond T.Engine was purchased in Miami and I had it shipped up here..It will be a while before I can get to it.I have a couple of projects to finish and then I will focus on the truck...

Video of engine.
