One of the drawbacks of running this site is that I don’t really get to enjoy reading builds as much as I used to. Before I started Build-Threads.com in 2009, I would have my bookmarks filled with build threads of all types, to enjoy at my own leisure. These days, I have you guys to think about! That means less time reading builds, and more time critiquing, collecting, and posting; which leaves less time for my own enjoyment (cue violin). But every now and then I find a build that makes me stop and force myself to devote enough time to really take it in, which is what happened last Sunday. Over the space of a few hours I read Jesse’s 1962 Ford Falcon build, and I loved every minute of it, as it reminded me why I started this site in the first place. Not only is he building a cool car, but it’s the stories that he tells and the way he tells them that make this such a good read, as I found myself chuckling out loud on more than one occasion thanks to his great writing and humour. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Handy hint: I’ve found the best way to read blog-based builds like this one is to go to the “Blog Archive” pallet on the right hand sidebar, then click on each post from bottom to top (oldest to newest).

Awesome! Blogs are so much less interesting and have so much less character when doing builds like this! Never the less… great as always!
I bought one of his factory leaf springs after reading his blog and realizing he was close and had pulled them off.
