    I've had my 38 Chevy Coupe since 1974. It was set up Gasser style back then. I went crazy in the 90's and made a Streetrod out of it. I'm in the process of taking it back to a gasser with a 409, switch pitch TH400, original straight axle, ladder bars......etc

    Bought my '46 Ford business Coupe when I was 14, still have it, even though it is in a million pieces right now. Where have the last 39 years gone?

    My uncle owned it from mid 50's till 65 until he died in a car accident and my dad inherited it. He owned in from 1965 till 1987 when he gave it to me. I put it in my name in 1992. Will go to my son in 2025.....

    I've had the '54 in my avatar since 1992. What is that, 22 years now? That's more than half my life. That's twice as long as I've been married. (and she wonders why I love the car more.... ??) lol...

    The Chevy and I have been together 30 years. 1st laid eyes on the dilapidated race car in 1975. I was 9 yrs old, it sat and sat till I was 19 and the owner, my pal's dad, calls me up (on a normal phone)and says come get it. The guy refused to sell it prior to that. The purchase was made official when he handed me the title and I gave him a one dollar bill.
