Due to A Server move, the original Guestbook that I had on the Site is no longer supported.  So I have added a new Guestbook.  Below are all of the Original Guest book entries prior to the move.

I just wanted to say I've purchased the same truck in hopes that my 7 year old son will want to restore it to a nice driver for himself and your tips have really helped me in a direction to head with it...He loves cars already, and I'm a car guy, so I hope some of it will rub off on him...I've done three complete frame offs in my day which isn't alot but I still have the cars...

I can't believe you have the time or patience to not only take on an effie but to have such an awesome and thorough description of your project as well. I have a '56 I'll be starting someday (kids in college) and you just reminded me what I'm in for. Kinda scarry. Good luck on your project. From your detailed description and pics the truck is going to be incredible. Kudos to your wife too, it takes a special woman to endure such a huge undertaking as a ground-up hot rod project. I drive my wife Jeanette crazy talking about my future dream truck. Take Care, Bill Balken

I'm in the process of restoring a 56 F100. This is my first restoration so it has been a learning experience. Excellente website. From the pictures I have been able to pick up a few ideas for my truck. Keep up the good work. Carlos.

Wow Your web cite must take a lot of time too, is great . It is your truck and you can do as you please however, I think if you change from stock in any way you will regret it later. Stock is great. I had a ' 48 Ford that I could not refuse the offer at the time now wish I had kept it. Good luck Bill Brown

WOW! I am truely inspired by your skills and forward thinking.I also have a 56 Effie,but mine is a bit different from everyone elses.My Effie was assembled in Norfolk,Va,and spent its next 15 years serving the US Navy,then it was retired to a farm in southern Va. I bought it in a town not too far from where i live,for $1000.00 US.Somebody had a brainstorm and put a very healthy 302 with a c-4 trans,but didn't bother to upgrade the gears in the rear end.Anyway,i'm currently going to rod the truck,but paint will be a couple years away,due to finance budgeting,but a primered flat black truck is fine for me right now.I will be hitting the cruisins locally til i get brave enough for a trip to Goodguys show in Columbus Ohio in july.Thanks again for the inspiration. Thanks so much,Kevin H. (KillBillet.com) look it up,my user name is...ratfink56...Bye

Hi Lee, was bored so I was going through my bookmarks to see who I could delete! I guess I'll keep yours even though I really have no idea what you are talking about! Donna

I am curious how the jag rearend is coming with the airshocks. Was it worth all the fabrication you had to do? I am building a 56. I don't have a frame but I can easily find one. I am debating if I should just have a new one made for me, Roy

Hi Lee, Just happened to find your site again after misplacing the link. Last time I looked was before you started with the shockwaves. I am putting the shockwave 8000 on the rear of my truck and noticed you had 2 per side for the Jag diff. I can't tell very well from the angle of the photos but, it seems you didn't leave enough room for the airbag to expand when the shocks are inflated. They get to about 5 inches (approx 130 mm) when inflated. It looks to me like they might rub the frame near the top in your application. Hopefully I am wrong but, if I am right, it's better to catch it now before you get too far into it. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing the finished product. P.S. You can see my progress on the FTE site. Had knee surgery last week, the 25th of Sep. so mine's on hold for a bit.

Like your web site, I too have a 56 that has been in process for about 5 years now. I laughed when I looked at the pics of your cab, it's like looking at mine all over.I too have the rust in along the front and sides....I was wondering the best way to tackle it. Thanks for th etips and I will be back to reference and visit. Aaron.
