    The family of the original builder of the 1934 Chevy hot rod/ gasser called me as they found two trophies from the Ram Rod car show put on at the DC Armory in 1964 and again in 1967/68. The 64 trophy was for third place and the 67/68 trophy was for the grand final of the International Championship auto show. Cool history from a very cool car guy!
    Thanks

  10. I wish that Tommy were still with us. He would have really enjoyed seeing your Chevy come back to life after all of these years.

    It’s a 20 footer but not bad for over 50 year old paint :)
