    After 30 years of looking I found the 34 my dad sold in 1957.. picked it up today from the guy he sold it to.
    A time capsule of a 50's hot rod just as my dad sold it. 354 hemi with a Columbia two speed..

    Wow, I would love to have a few of my Dads old cars back. He was one of the original hotrodders before people every termed it that.
    He had a 34 Ford with a Lincoln big 8 in it and Buick Brakes.
