  1. The '52 Chevy, '40 Ford, '57 Chevy, and '30 Ford were all owned by my good friend, Ted Wigert. Sadly Ted owns no hot rods now. he's living in an assisted living facility now. Ted loved pick ups.

    Dean, sorry to hear about your friend Ted. His 30 pickup is a nearly perfect twin to my 31 with a wheel swap.

    Do you have any other pics of your truck that you would like to share? I like your truck, & as I am building one are curious about any details that you would like to show. Bill

    A friend's current PU project, 39 Ford beer barrel. That's his 46 Olds in the background. Both are currently on hold due to health problems.

    Changed my avatar as my prior 39 1/2 Ton was sold a week ago. I have owned this true 48 5 window for over 10 years and it is now going to be finished (hopefully). It is or was my first build as I have always bought partially finished or finished cars in the past. With retirement came the time to do it all myself. Short list of things to date: Top chopped 5 in front 4 1/2 in the rear, single piece hood, louvered the hood (done outside by pro), Big block Pontiac Trans AM front clip with PS PB, Big Block Chevy with Tunnel Ram, 350 Trans, C-4 Corvette Rear, Dakota Digital Dash, power windows and power brakes. Plan is to now take it to FL (Franks Hot Rod Shop) for the finals as my experience is not in painting and final set up. I want to do it under his guidance. Really proud of the top as it is my first to cut and the 1/2 inch in the front made it look really good.

    Loved this one ever since it was in American Rodder back in the early 90s. How can you not love a rod with an Offy 270. DSC_0127.jpg
