    IMG_0104.JPG IMG_0105.JPG My buddy Al's '40 coupe that he just finished. It's got a real old school theme with the Caddy caps,shaved front bumper, and hot pepper matte red paint. Check out the Stude tail lights and homemade rear pan.

    Makes me remember the 50s&60s with seeing the fender skirts and Caddy Sombrero cars with a slight tail rake. May do that with mine someday:cool:

    I still love the old style gas classes at the drags when I was going to Dover Dragway in Wingdale, NY ('59-'62) when guys often drove to the races, competed by bolting on slicks and opening their exhaust cutouts, and then hopefully drove home. Or they put their car on a tow bar, wrote "car in tow" on the back window and flat towed to the races. Chevy coupes were popular but you saw '40 Fords too.

    Next is a local Wednesday Night Rotary Club Show in Point Pleasant, NJ. Just to avoid confusion, I have a black '40 Fordor, but NOT this one.

    Last up is Maplegrove Dragway Glory Days Nostalgia Drags. Not many '40 Fords, so I'll throw in a Merc.

    Don't know where you got this picture but I sure appreciate you posting it. That is my 40 next to a good friends El Camino. Just recently lost my friend and this is the only picture I have of our cars together. Thanks.
