    Hello,

    The 1935-37 Ford grilles look somewhat similar. They were a far cry from the cool slant back look of the 33-34’s. On the other end of the 30’s, the 1938 Fords were getting their last shot at things “Art Deco” and gave the country a swoopy look on its own style. So, the 1936 still had the hot rod look that most enjoyed.


    On one of those in between So Cal rainy periods where most residents go for a mind clearing drive, we saw this cool blue 1936 Ford by the side of the road, sticking out in a field of “blah” newer cars. The color was one of the reasons, but in looking at what really stood out was the old styling from those good old days of hot rodding.

    The newer cars surrounding this old 1936 Ford Coupe were blasé and there was nothing to make them stand out, unless they were painted red with yellow flames…but then, who does that?

    Hello,

    Sorry for not posting the original photo of the grille. At the time, I had to move some stuff to get a good shot and I did not want to look like an intruder at a private parking lot. The above photo came from the Aces Hot Rod show in Huntington Beach.

    This hot rod gets around South Orange County. Just the last week, my wife saw this black roadster coming down a long hill, as it stood out among the big SUVs and sedans. It was turning right as we were going straight ahead. For me, it was hidden behind those giant SUVs, so I did not see it driving until it turned right. It has been seen a lot of times, driving around, just about anywhere in the So Cal area.

    It may not be most people’s idea of a hot rod, but it gets driven daily and certainly draws attention wherever it goes.
