Here is the right up on it.

Pure Ford and purely business this one off 58 sedan belongs to Keith and Jeanie Fulp of Taylorville Indiana. Body is red with yellow flame job wheels are a combination of Center lines 15x3.5 in fronts ans ss/t cragars 15x7 riding G78-15 L60-15 Dunlops. Rare pair of fiberglass fendrs flank 67 vintage 427 motor warmed over with 780cfm Holley carb  manifold Speed Pro pistons Kustom headers Mallery dizzy and Accel wires Cam lifters and push rods came from Crane. Manual shift C6 slushbox with 10" TCI converter and B&M deep pan passes the power along to a 9" Ford rear with 4.57:1 gears. OwnerFulp custom built roll bar and dash.

Wow....I forgot all about that one!
The old '58 was a street/strip cruiser back then. I miss the old FE days.
Other than the hood, the paint job is the same. Interior is the same except a couple of roll cage updates since then. As I recall, the "roll bar" at that time was made of something very similar to exhaust tubing...more for looks than function.
I remember my little girl, standing in the area where the back seat was supposed to be, smiling and blonde hair blowing in the wind as we drove down the highway.
I guess I would go to jail for that now, with car seat rules. :-)
Thanks,
Keith

The historical meaning of a HOOSIER is a Kentuckian who migrates north of the Ohio River to settle in Indiana.

There was a time when becoming a Hoosier increased the I.Q. level of both states; that was according to the U.S. Army census done in the 70's.

The truth of the matter is that Sam Hoosier was building a canal down by Louisville and preferred to hire men from the Indiana side of the Ohio because the men from Kentucky were good for nuttin lazy bums that just wanted to sit around and make/drink corn sqeezzins....... Laughing

That's your truth. Wink 
 The name spelled differently as I heard it ... originated in the 1700's to describe the inhabitants from the OHIO Valley, (which I think is mostly in Kentucky), who then moved and settled in southern Indiana, before it was actually called Indiana; (which IS across the Ohio River).
 Anyway,  there are many, MANY actual theories as to how the latest spelling was adopted and to where it might have come.
 Either way ... that U.S. Army census from the 1970's was based on the facts at THAT time, not from the earliest days or today.  Razz

Well...
I enjoyed growing up in Southern Indiana. Never worried much about the origin of the Hoosier term, but I AM half Kentuckian. I have been told that is the reason that I can fix many things with a piece of wire, duct tape, wire ties and silicone .
Thanks Y 'all....

Very cool Keith!
Thanks for sharing your Hoosier roots with me awhile back. It's cool knowing I seen you race years ago at US41 and just recently made the connection.

Thanks guys....
The old 58 is getting faded...carpet is shot...door panels crappy ..
But I guess I like it that way.
I think the new upcoming aluminum block Interceptor will take 115# off the nose so it will go faster!
