Hello all, here is my 1940 Ford. I have had this car for just over 2 years now, and this winter I plan on making some changes. Here is a little history on it. This car used to be my Uncle's car and he used to take me all over in it. Before I was 12 he had me polishing the wheels and bumpers, and what ever other small jobs I could do while him and my dad did the real work. Uncle Jerry passed in 96 or so and the car got restored by a car club in Pella Ia. Around 1999 my Aunt brought the car by my parent's house seeing if my dad would be interested in purchasing. He didn't have the money, and there was no way I could come up with it either as I was a senior in high school. Well about 2 years ago I was cruising the local craigslist and saw a 40 ford for sale. I knew it was Uncle Jery's old car. I looked through the ad and thought to myself, dang wish I had the money. Later that night I told my fiance about the car, whom is now my wife, and her response isn't what I was expecting. She told me to call my banker and see if I could get a loan for it. I couldn't belive it. So I called him up and low and behold, I got a loan for it. Since purchasing the car I have only been able to make minor changes to it. But now the time is coming where I want to get it where I think it should have been when it was restored. The way my Uncle always told me he was going to redo it when he had everything. I only have about 6 months left on the loan, and I'm going to do as much to it as I can this winter. Here are some pics of the car right after I got it. I just put the rest of the missing trim on it, tinted the windows, hooked up the alternator that never was, and fixed the original fuel tank.
