My Dad has always been a go fast gear head and probably the best trouble-shooter I know. He was around for the 50’s and has always been telling me how it was and how things have changed in what’s cool. Rust never was and never will be cool. Primer for a few weeks, maybe a summer that’s it!! He never admits to much street racing but my Uncle rats him out an awful lot and he knows way too much about going fast and doing it safe anyway. I remember a few times he would come home with the weirdest shit wrong with his cars. Broken ring gears, rear wheels with the mounting holes carved out by the studs, 2x4 manifolds laying around disappearing and showing up again. Same thing with them bald tires (wink) he would never get rid of. He knows nothing about it if you ask him but I know how that shit happens.

Well 30 years ago when I was 14, he gave me a 1968 428 Bonneville convertible. With his guidance and some help I rebuilt that car from the ground up, put a killer paint job on it and cleaned scrubbed polished everything that would come back. Did not replace stuff for the sake of replacing it, why? Because you will have more money to go fast of course. When I got my license I had one nice ride to drive that I knew everything about and appreciated. That pretty much started my sickness.
Lost my dad in December of 2012. He is missed deeply.
