    Earlier in life I worked at a body shop, and saw some high end restorations done on rare Mercedes, a Lamborghini, and a number of muscle cars. I worked on a few cars myself including a ‘67 Firebird and my own ‘81 Trans Am. The shop owner had a ‘34 5-window coupe. Influenced by his car and ZZTop’s Eliminator, I’ve always loved the 33-34 hot rods. I’ll come back to this later.

    I’m much older in life now, and have retained my love of Mfg. (which began at age 12) and cars. I’ve pursued Mfg. for the duration of my career. I’m proficient with welding and fabrication processes. I still love to work on cars and motorcycles. You can see the two bikes I’ve built and a recently rebuilt Jeep that started as a Copart salvage project. I’m a father of nine children, with the oldest being a Junior in college and my youngest being 3. These projects I’ve done with the kids and each of them have been involved one way or another. It teaches them some skills, familiarity with tools, gets them off electronics, gives them earned pride in something they’ve accomplished, and has built great family memories.

    Recently, I had the opportunity to acquire a ‘34 Ford Sedan. I was excited to come across one that had been untouched. It’ll make the ideal project for me and my kids. If you’re sweating the idea of young kids working on a hot rod, don’t be. For the projects we’ve done, you’ll see it’s under good guidance and age/skill appropriate work is given to them. I never plan to sell any of the projects we’ve done, though I did sell the first Harley so we could afford to buy the 2nd one which we customized to a much greater extent. I’ve joined this forum for the perspective of the members and to help with some guidance on doing this ‘34 Ford.
