Default The Tale of "Tater"

I think every active hot rodder comes across at least one special find in his lifetime (I won't call it a "barn find", as that term has been heavily used as of late). It can be a car with real history, personal significance, or just a great score....

Man... I kind of dig the front fenders... There is something about them that speaks to me.

REALLY good find.

Looking at that car took me back further in time than I would like to admit ! Very cool.

Those front fenders are wonderful. I'm always the first to say strip the fenders, but those need to stay.

Wow, what a cool Roadster!! I wonder what the history of the car really is?? The front fenders, lack of running boards, and seats should help identify it, if it shows up in any old photos.

Anyone know what those seats may be out of? Early Ford?

Thanks for the post, Jay!

Too cool! The history of it is what gets me going the most I think.. That's a time capsule car.

That is cool! someone took the time when it was built to make it an above average car for sure.

Looking forward to updates when Cris gets it cleaned up & back on the road.

That's a killer story.

What Northern California Valley town did you find it in?

Amazing find....love the fenders and skirts. I'd have to fix the rust and throw some paint on it, but wouldn't change a thing.
