    Born Feb/14/1938. Dad bought a 29 Ford,$100.I was about 14,I really had my eye on the 30 Ford touring next to it but it was $300.He had Model As for several years earlier. I think he wanted to share that with me.We worked on the A,was the car I learnd to drive in.I bought my first car from Dad,his daily driver.1941 SuperDelux 2 door BLACK ,in 1955.It didnt take me long. Dual exhaust,Saran seat covers,spray dyed the headliner,recovered(grey nagahide) the doorpannels,Mama sewed the armrests,dropped axel came out of a sprintcar.read instructions How to Lead,removed the parking lites and (trunk handle,installed a pullcable)removed taillites and installed a pair from a 50 Lincoln.A former cab mechanic ran a garage a couple blocks away.He painted it Cadillac Coppertone.After I married and bought a house I traded it for a 21 inch TV.A 1953 Chevy BelAir HT was the family car.I bought a 1940 Hudson Coupe,I repowered it with a PontiacV8. It was out of a friend's convertible,he wrecked,and anorher friend bought it for his 49 Ford but sold it to me,for 100bucks.I tore it down and rebuilt it.I was going to put it in my 53 Chevy.But put it in the 40 Hudson Coupe with a 39 Packard tranny.That's just a little dab of what Ive done.Cadillac in a F-2 Ford.I won trophys 2 years for my 40Hudson Coupe, 2 years I showed at the winter show. I put a Zundapp engine in a Kawasaki Greenstreak race bike for a guy who competed with it.He did well with it.The 4 cycle just chugged along in comfort,he said.I restored and resold many cars for a small profit.People even gave me cars that they knew I would put time into.I was accused by a few people in jest that I never paid more than $250.00 for a car,which wasn't true.I built and cared for a Hobby Stock 56 Pontiac/389 cu for a couple years,Joined the city fire department in 1971,worked maintaining the EMS ambulances 3 years ,Fire Fighter Mechanic Captain 12 years, Combat FireFighter for a total of 27 years.I drove the big red trucks.
