    As a kid growing up in the sixty's I spent many hours building plastic car models. My passion for Ford Hot Rods was gained from the many hours spent modifying those old plastic kits. In the very early seventy's I purchased a 1932 Ford roadster it was actually just a body held on top of the frame with 2 x 4 wood there was no floor or sub rails. At the time I had no idea what a sub rail was. So as time went on I built that roadster teaching myself how to weld and make parts I still have that roadster today.
    My wife and I have driven the roadster all over the place including a cross country trip to California there's not much we have not done with that little roadster.
    Besides a few deuces we also have a Land Speed Race car built form a WW 2 drop fuel tank from a Navy Bearcat fighter plane. The race car continues to evolve now a very fast rear engine modified roadster having set many records on the Salt Flats. Also becoming the first ever gas burning Flathead Ford powered roadster to hit 200 MPH.
