far from done, but far from just starting. a pic from today. I got my very first car in 1958 or 1959, too long ago to remember exactly, but after getting it together, running and mildly rodded, it got put aside in 1964. Three years ago, after some false starts, I started rebuilding it in earnest. ...and fifty plus years after being set aside for another Model A hot rod, it is back on the road. This is a car with a lot of family history, as my father bought it brand new in the fall of 1929. That history made me a bit cautious about how to modify it respectfully. Most of the car's life from 1929 to 1958, it was my grandmother's only car. and she drove it everywhere throughout California during the depression and WWII. It suffered but was a survivor. Once I got it, while not yet a teenager, my father's first requirement was that I could not drive it until it got hydraulic brakes installed. So along with adding hydraulic brakes, I got rid of the '35 spoke wheels, in favor of black '49-'51 Mercury wheels, 5.60 and 8.20x15 wide whites, and a dropped axle. It was running by the time I got my driver's license and I drove it everywhere until I got my more serious hot rod that got me through my senior year of high school. The second car, a '29 tudor with a 327, came because I wanted more horsepower, but was not ready to put a V8 in the cabriolet. I will continue, focussing primarily on the current build effort.
