well, it's been a while since I've actually posted anything, as the past year has been a roller coaster of medical, issues, car shows, and hospital visits. Some of you know, last May 1, 2014, my daughter Bella was diagnosed with any extremely rare form of Cancer, and our lives stopped, all things were put on hold, and a new lifestyle had to begin. I won't go into all the medical details, but we have had a lot of support from the HotRod community, and Bella was diagnosed in Remission as of February. During that time, we have become extremely close with some amazing car people, specifically, Darrel and Terri Holenbeck, and Andy and Sue Brizio, and the whole Brizio/ Holenbeck family. Some othe extremely new close friends are Chuca & Tyler Pullen, Sue and Alex Gambino, Brian and Steve from The Lonestar Roundup, and Marion and Mike Rocco from Austin Speed Shop, along with John Joyo, and Lucky Burton, and certainly not least Piero. These people have done SOOO much to help us and especially Bella, it's just unbelievable what the HotRod community will do for kids. Also the local Spokane Ford club which includes Chris, and Corey Swenson, Mike Robison, & Lenny helped us out. That brings me to where we are now. I was in the long slow process of building my '32 sedan and '23 Coupster and that all was put on hold when we got the news. I even put them both up for sale, but no sale. I picked the Sedan over a coupe, so that Bella, who is a "car chick" would be able to ride along with the wife and I. Well after going to GNRS, and The LoneStar Round up, and with Bella in remission, our family HotRod juices have slowly started flowing again. One of the things we discussed was, when she started getting and feeling better we would get back to the sedan. Bella was always in the shop with me, so once she was admitted into the hospital, I found it impossible to even go out to the shop, I would just break down emotionally and get physically sick. She is now strong enough to hang out there, and will be getting back under her welding helmet soon. Well, that fact is, building a '32 Ford is very expensive, and while I had been building it, and gathered up a lot of parts, it was no where near close to being on the road. In walks an answer to our dilemma. While going through pics, magazines, and the Internet, '28-'31 Sedans caught her eye. I also knew where one was, but he bought it at age 14, and it wasn't really for sale, but someone knew that I had a '64 Impala that I hadn't yet got to, and wanted to buy it..... I said, if my friend will sell his sedan, for what I will sell you the Impala, you give him the money and we have a deal...... Needless to say, it worked out, a friend got my '64, Bella, got her Sedan, and no money out of my pocket to make Bella happy.... Win win for all, and we all know, a '30 sedan costs about a 1/4th what a well built '32 would!! So, the plan is, a spring behind Banjo from the '32 with the spring from the '23, a 3-4" kick up in the rear, the whole front end (complete drilled & chrome Super Bell) from the '32, '53 Flathead and 3 speed from the Coupster, 4-5" chop with a 1-1/2" windshield header rise, 3" channel with front and rear seating. We'll be checking out Evel's motor nation when that Roku device comes out, and to top things off, Lucky Burton made her a shifter knob with a "Cancer Survivor" coin embedded into it.
