    Not mine, but yesterday I met an 85 year old rodder who bought this 39 Ford in 1948, and chopped and channeled it in 51. He has owned it and driven it for 65 years. ImageUploadedByTJJ1372796083.620083.jpg ImageUploadedByTJJ1372796109.554105.jpg ImageUploadedByTJJ1372796138.806356.jpg
    That's him in the middle talking to some fans of his car.

    Had my 65 fastback since I was 14... pulled it out of a field and got it on the road by time I was 16. Love my hot rods, but this car I will never part with. My three kids, some day they can fight over it. :)
