    Pictures of Dad's 31 Model A Hot Rod through the years.

    First picture is of it in primer in the late 50's before he painted it.

    Second picture is of it on a car club float for the local high school's homecoming parade.

    Third picture is at a car show in 1961 at Bennett's Go-Cart track in Utica, IL

    Last picture was taken at the 2012 Chicago World of Wheels last weekend with some of the family. Dad's on the far right...I'm on the far left.

    My pop-pop's cars 1st pic 1937 Buick coupe he blew up the original engine a few months after buying the car in the 40's. He owned this car till around 1960-61. I've got a ton of paperwork on the car and would love to find out if it still exists. This pic is dated spring 1951.

    My uncle also had a '49 convertible:

    If my uncle looks like a juvenile delinquent, it's because that's what he was. Still is, at age 82.

    My grandfather. He was a circus owner and lion tamer. He had a chauffer who drove him on business trips. The rest of the time he drove himself.
