    Lenny,

    All I've ever seen of your blown shoebox was the one picture with text that was posted above. I have always thought that was THE coolest Ford I'd ever seen with that monster 8-carb blown Hemi sticking out of the hood. I appreciate all the pictures you have added. Really like the Mustang and Javelin too, your cars are crazy and just plain badass. Thanks for sharing!!

  19. Len,Thank you for letting us look at your pictures. Welcome to the Board !
     
  20. Len.........Welcome to the H.A.M.B.
    I too am from Massatwoshits as you are also. I've always been a great admirer of your cars.
    Did you work out of a shop in the Lynn area?
    I've worked in Lynn for about 20 years and worked in the town of Waltham since the early 60's.
    A lot of rod 'n custom history in our state thanks to guys like you.

  21. Anthony or anyone else have info on the Paul Aldrich Shoebox Ford ?
     
  22. "Anthony or anyone else have info on the Paul Aldrich Shoebox Ford ?" Thats the one from New Hampshire right?
     
  23. I know it is from New England , not sure if it's Mass. or New Hampshire . Black tons of flames and driven to death !!
     
  24. Paul is a member of the Ty-Rods and the Ford was chopped(I believe)and painted by Kelsey Martin in Beverly Massachusetts.He also did the work on that chopped Merc(the Ant Crusher)owned by Sonny Venuti from Lynnfield Massachusetts.
    I know Paul used to drive the wheels off it.He damaged the side of it once going through a toll booth in Florida(the Sawgrass Parkway I think).Sonny is the same way with the Merc.He's gone through 3 motors in the car.Been to the Merc/Deuce reunion in Holland MI,many times to Louisville KY and Lead East.Neither one of the cars uses air ride or hydraulics but still ride and drive like a standard passenger car.
     
  25. Is Paul Aldrich in the candle business?
