    I have to get going on mine so it can celebrate it's 90th birthday with a giant, smokey burnout!!
  7. Even though I'm a Deuce guy, the 1933 and 1934 Fords are the most beautiful V-8 Ford ever made!

    Right there with you.
    Had the pleasure of some seat time on a trip to Pleasanton many years ago in this 34 that my friend had (RIP Arden).

    @DDDenny funny how pictures in magazines sometimes don't capture the real color, I wonder why. Incredible roadster BTW

    When I was first introduced to hot rods, it was a friend who had a 1934 Ford 5 window coupe. It was not stock, as it was noisy and fast. I could hear him coming down the street to our driveway for the weekly high school teenage gathering at our house.

    The teen gatherings were for exchanging hot rod ideas, hubcaps on other’s cars, learned new techniques and the latest gossip. I did not have a license as yet, so I was the "go-fer" for the older teens. I cleaned the wheels, wiped the dash and interior areas and generally kept the teen cars clean. For my reward, I got to hang out with them, the cool hot rods and two semi custom cars that were also fast.

    My brother allowed me to hang out, if I was busy doing “car” stuff or riding my bicycle down to the parts store a couple of blocks away to get some necessary parts, oil or a couple of cans of STP-stuff for their motors. I could drive any of the cars, but they all said I was too young and their insurance would not cover an underage, unlicensed driver. So, I rode my bicycle to and from the auto parts store.


    One day, I was helping the guy with the 34 coupe at his house. He lived several blocks from our house. When we were finished, he was going to work, so, he gave me a ride in his Oldsmobile powered 34 coupe. I had never been inside, only the cleaning part and "oogle-eyeing" the cool hot rod. So, he gave me a ride back to my house several blocks away, as it was on his way to work. It was a short distance, but he went through the gears from a standing start down this long stretch of roadway. I was thrown back into my seat and was totally amazed and in awe of such power. It was my first ride in a real hot rod.

    A month later, I filmed him racing the 1934 Ford 5 Window Coupe at Lion’s Dragstrip in the A/Gas class.

    But, the initial ride locked me into the great feeling of being in something so cool, yet so powerful. When he was finished accelerating and slowing down, he looked over and had a big smile across his face. What he saw was the same smile across my own face. It was stupendous and exhilarating to be inside of the 34 coupe and flying down the street.

    So, one day… (I said to myself,) it will be my turn to build, ride and then drive my own hot rod. Yes!

    My opinion is worth 2/10 of f#ck all but I still think the Model 40s are the best looking cars from era, especially the 3Ws. Here`s mine some time in the 70s.
