  1. I remember stopping on my bike to look at the 49 Mercury in my neighborhood. Hoping that one day I could own and drive a car like that. I think in some way we can all relate to the guy on the phone.

    1. Yeah, I remember lots of neighborhood cars from when I was 10-12. The house on the corner had an MGTD, and a Volvo p1800. Across the street was a brand new 66 GTO. 2 blocks over was a Studebaker Avanti.

    1. Peace Frog I agree. For although he obviously loves all sorts of cars, he has proclaimed himself as a ‘Ford Guy’ on this show a few times. It’s still a sweet ride any way you slice it… just not what I was expecting.

    2. Your probably right Trent but a Windsor would Mate. Here in Australia Streetrods (Fords) are having more and more Ford V8’s put back in them at an alarming rate!!! I’m a 70’s long wheelbase man myself so performance isn’t an issue but you may want to look at the phenomenal power Ford Australia got out of its 4.0 inline 6 cylinder (Barra) up until x3 years ago. Fucking Mad!!!

  2. Love Tom, love the Woodie, love the Show. Have watched every single episode, almost always less than a day or two after it airs on here, if not sooner. It just hits home in authentic way that others do not.

    Stay safe and keep planning/hunting/driving Tom, can’t wait for new episodes!

    1. He must look like chicken on a rotisserie. Cause I would guess that 80% of hot rod fords have a chevy motor.

  3. What an amazing and inspirational story you’re the best of what you’re doing Tom and I love you man, don’t forget Davin in redline rebuilds i never miss a second, thank you all so much and God bless HAGERTY ❤

  4. I watch alot of Barn Find Hunter and I would have never guessed there was an LS under the hood! Keep up the great work!

    1. seriously,,, you think he should tour the country with a flatty? Look how easy to maintain this vette engine is. Parts are every where.

    2. Can’t blame him, the dude’s always driving small displacement VW’s & Porsches, makes sense his OG car has a bit of power behind it.

  5. You had me right up til you lifted the hood…LS?….gotta have a ‘Ford in a Ford’! Thx for sharing Tom & Hagerty.

    1. Yeah me to Chris!!! I am a Ford Fanatic (own x9 70’s Fords) and whilst gm V8’s are great engines just like Chrysler’s it’s just not the same is it??? I love his shows and will continue to watch them but I have been hit with a monster dose of disappointment.
