To get Project Real Street from Lakeland, Florida, to Longwood, Florida, we borrowed a now-extinct Lincoln Blackwood from the Ford press fleet. It proved a fine tow vehicle, especially with our light aluminum trailer and stripped chassis. At this point, Project Real Street was our version of a body in white. We stripped off the lights, the fenders, the nose, the trim, the interior, the drivetrain, and anything else that might hamper a quality paint job.
