We kept coming back to this '50 Ford ragtop taildragger. Ron Bales had a '50 as a high school kid in 1956, but no money to build it up. Now he's doing it with this one, customized with '54 Buick trim, a '54 Pontiac grille center, '54 Chevy parking lights, and some baby Appletons. It runs a 0.030-over LT1 and rides on front and rear Air Ride bags.
