Hmmm, I missed this. My name is Tom and I live in south east CT, lived in CT all my life and winters are getting a bit old....and so am I.

Recently picked up a 1956 3600 that somewhere during it's abused life gained a flat bed dump and a broken frame to go along with it. I have the rear end our and futzing with the frame. Cool gay-raj and cold tools making work a real event.

I have been in mfg all my life and have a pretty well stocked shop, lathe, mill, welders and other tools of distruction.

Tyler here, in Burlington, Vermont. Thought I'd post a "hello" in the neighborhood thread!

Been on this site since '02. My 59 3200 has been off the road most of that time, with a brief trip about 6 years ago after installing the rebuilt 235 without adding a fuel filter. Carb clogged up with rust from the tank, and is has sat in the garage since then!

I plan on getting it on the road this Spring, stickered and legal-like. I want to drive it for a spell, then decide if I want to sell it or not. Needs the fuel system put back together, some tinkering with lights wiring, probably a couple weekends worth of work.

I play upright bass and would love to have an early 50s wagon or ambulance or something to haul it and its gear to gigs in the nicer months. I love the old Plymouth wagons and Packard Henney coaches! I'd need to sell the truck to free up the capital and garage space, though!

Hey New Jersey, welcome to the obsession.
You'll have more luck if you ask this in the Engine shop forum. The depth of knowledge here is insane!

Hi, Dave McKee here in Danbury Ct. I've got a very rusty 38 1/2 ton that I'm attempting to do a resto-mod on. The back half of the frame was so far gone I just cut it off and replaced everything from the cab back with box tubing. I've had it for a long time and now that I'm retired have started working on it again. So far I've been working on the doors putting patch panels on and refurbishing hinges, latches and window regulators. Once the weather warms a bit I'll get the doors rehung then square up and stabilize the cab and start welding floor and patch panels on to it. When I'm satisfied with the cab I'll be more comfortable putting money into the drive train and suspension. This is a great site and am sure I'll be spending a bit of time here.
