New Guy from Ohio

Greetings to all of you. I figure my first and best bet here is to introduce myself. My name is Stan and I hail from northeast Ohio. I am new to the BBF scene.
I am in the process of building a T roadster. Recently purchased a 1979 Ranger Lariat 4x4 drivetrain to install in it. It is a 460 with a C6 tranny and stock 9" rear end.
I figure it is my best bet to get into the circle that knows these beasts the best. Hope to learn alot and share alot here.

Stan
P.S. Although this isn't mine, It is exactly what I am building. After I get all my ducks in a row...I will start posting build pics.

I lived in Lima most of my life, living in Northwest Georgia now.
Good to have you aboard.
Are you planning to make it 4X4, i know silly ? but it also sounded cool if you could
keep it low enough for "the look".
Also would be good for traction I guess.

Jay

What do you mean I cant spin it like a small block?
