Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Maybe we should get together, sip coffee and point at Nat while he works?

Coffee? I'm more inclined to a good rum.

No problem there. Hard to beat "Cafe Royale". Good stiff coffee, 1-1/2 oz of dark rum (Meyers) and 1/2 oz. of Grand Marnier with a touch of cream (if you like). YUM!

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Remeasured everything over the weekend and it looks like the Dana 80 HD will fit quite nicely. Just a lot more work to do. ..and money to spend. Can't remember...might'a been Carrol Shelby that said...

"All it takes to go fast...is lots of cubic dollars."

Somehow I grasp the "cubic dollars" thing, even though I'm not trying to go fast.

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Cool man Sounds like you're ready to rock and roll as soon as you get some time. You've probably said and I've forgotten--do you plan on going rear disc brakes or are you choosing drum? Does the Dana 80 have emergency brakes or will you use a drive shaft brake? I think I would favor the E brake on the axle though mine has it on the drive shaft. Don't forget to have the bikini team take pics of themselves--er I mean the parts. Jack
