    Hello all! Greetings from rural Iowa. My wife and I are both into the many forms of traditional kustoms as well as fairly stock restorations.

    My wife has a 57 Coupe Deville with some mild mods (lost some of the really expensive emblems and added chrome reverse wheels). I'm just the onboard mechanic. My wife has been working on the Cad all spring and summer and hopes to have it done this fall in time for Hunnert. I have a very cool wife!

    I have a fleet of Full size iron that is just north of the cut off date for traditional rods. I have a 65 Chrysler T&C wagon, 66 Newport 4drHT, 67 Imperial convertible, 67 Bonneville Ambulance and a 69 Bonneville convertible. I also have a 68 Coronet 500 convertible and 440 wagon as token small cars. The 65 wagon and the 67 Ambulance are mild kustom projects. The 68 wagon is a fun hot rod with a mild 440 and 3.23 gears. My back yard is a private collection of around 50 cars that serve as parts cars for my projects and some storage for friends. Did I mention I have a very cool wife!

    I also truly love building model cars. I am a member of KKIM (Kustom Kemps in Miniature) in Davenport, IA.

    I really enjoy the people involved in traditional rods and the creativity involved without the need for big $$$.

    See ya on the road.

    Here is a car I built with a friend about 10 years ago. It's a 64 Chevy under there.

    My wife only puts up with my crap cuz I fix her sled. No one else will open the hood!

    I also have a 62 Olds out back I might put on the road, or not. I like being an unacceptable!
