My 32 is registered as a 1932 Ford. "Kit Car" is a dirty word to real hot rodders and I don't do "plastic" (fiberglass) cars!

Where did you find the trucks you're looking for? There are hundreds of classic chevy trucks and F1 / F100 Fords for sale in CA. Some good spots to look are the Trader Pubs and Recycler:

http://recycler.com/

And if you can travel here and bring cash you can get some killer deals at the Pomona Hot Rod swap meet, especially this time of year.

Long Beach swap is another good one.

Plus, it is always good to see what you are getting before having something shipped overseas. If you'd like me to check something out for you let me know.
