    It started about 1958, not quite a teenager, I was into model cars, first Highway Pioneers, then the AMT/SMP 3in1s. In 1959, I got my first car, the 1929 Ford Cabriolet listed above. got it running in '62, slightly rodded. My first hot hot rod was a '29 tudor in '63 with a 327, then a '57 tudor BelAir with the same 327, by summer '65. ...built a '29 Ford A/SR strip car with an injected 401 nailhead around '67. I stopped working on cars after VietNam (69-70), until early '90s.
    Since the restart, I initially built the '29 closed cab (resto-rod/street rod) in '92 and rebuilt it in 2010-11, making it more traditional, but it’s not fully there. I have had the 392 hemi powered '51 ford since about '96-'98 and been working on it slowly, and keeping it running most of the time as a driver. It is pretty nice now; but never done. It is due for new paint after recent mods and twenty years since last paint. The cabriolet was in pieces for many years; but i rebuilt it from mid 2011to Aug 2016, over 2,000 of my own hours. It is a mostly traditional rod, banger powered, mildly customized. I kept it in shakedown mode from mid-2014 to late 2015. Me, a retired civil engineer, general contractor, and RE broker, and nowadays, I am mostly just hanging out at my shop.
