Bryan lives in the Peach state of Georgia. I served in the Marines with Bryan and we have been friends for over 50 years.

The Ford has a 12-volt system with AC and a wood grained dash. The Custom '33 Ford has a 5.0 Mustang Cobra V8 engine. Dual chrome horns, cowl lights, chrome radiator grill, fancy greyhound mascot hood ornament and dual tail lights with soft tan upholstery throughout adorn this fine Southern Belle.

The 33 ford was made famous by the Rock group ZZ Top and has appeared in several of the group’s music videos. Enjoy the music video “Gimme All Your Lovin” highlighting their 33 Ford Eliminator.

WOW Mario, that's another checkmark in your AWESOME column.

I would love to own that ride but my wife said I would be mobbed by all the fast women, and she wants me ALL to herself.

I learned NOT to play LIAR'S POKER with her long ago.

It's a great ride and with AC it's perfect in the warmer places. As you can see Bryan has put "A Lot of Lovin" into this Beauty!

Did you ever see the movie Highwaymen on Netflix with Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner? That's a great movie for that era of cars.

Clyde Barrow is always driving the latest, by stealing them.

That Greyhound is prominently displayed several times in the movie and you always take note of the V8 badging.

And watch ol' Clyde double clutch and down shift and do a power slide trying to escape.

I even notice WHF initials are on the door of one of the cars.

Little things a car guy appreciates......

I've heard of the movie but haven't seen it. I'll see if I can get a copy from my Library. Thanks for the tip! That Greyhound is really sharp!

I even thought the beige car with the yellow wheels was a hit. They use that one to go to the drug store for Bonnie.

I enjoy seeing a Ford with a Ford engine for a change. As much as I love the Chevrolet motor it has gotten tiring seeing nothing but Chev motors in these old Fords. Cheers to you sir for doing a great job and keeping this beautiful Ford all Ford.

That's right George, I'm a GM guy also and can't understand how a Ford guy would put a Chevy engine in his Ford! What does that tell you?

I wouldn't think about putting a Ford engine in a Chevy! Cheers.
