    Ran across this vid and thought of this post: That's the modern equivalent of what you need to pull an 18 bottom plow.

    Hot Rod Poetry

    Rusted metal. Frozen bolts. Missing parts. Piece of history. Piece of scrap. Piece of art? I grab my creeper, and roll under the dirty greasy beast. It's clear, what must be done. At my bench now, I hammer. I heat. I weld. The metal bends, the sparks fly, as I grind my arms grow tired...

    Racecar to RATROD

    Crazy stuff on Craig's List, eBay etc!!!

    The F100 frames were built to handle bed load. You put a big motor in a stock frame and raise the front at the strip, it'll flex - a lot. I used to have a pic of one local. They then boxed the frame - that helped, but I think they still had some issues. Farmers didn't even like the unibody...
