    So I posted some time ago that I had been contacted by Kustomrama saying that they wanted to do a feature story in their Magazine, Gasoline on my Hi-boy. That has happened and it is now on the European market, and maybe more, I don't know. Anyway I know many on this site will say, "BFD", and I can respect that, it seems UN-cool to be doing so but at 80 years old, and being a car nut for 70 of those maybe I accomplished something I never thought I would in this old life. So here a couple of shots of the mag. Forgive my "old man enthusiasm" and the fact that the car itself isn't considered by the purists traditional guys, a piece for the HAMB, (" understand and get that also). So here is a couple of shots of the Mag, The story can be seen in its entirety by Googling, Jerry Bergs 1934 Ford. Gasoline 2.jpg Gasoline.jpg

    BTW, this mag. is as fine as any in the field, as fine as Rodders Journal quality or at least 90% of what RJ is.

    I've been fortunate to have more than one car feature in a national magazine and I understand how you feel. It's a good thing to see some recognition in print and that is forever.
    Very cool deal as it's almost like winning the lottery when there are so many quality cars to choose from at any event, local or national.
    Congratulations

    Well,
    It is a “BFD”. Not many will be able to accomplish what you have done. Be proud. Also , at 80 yrs. old and still a car nut. You my friend are an inspiration.

    Well so surprising to get the congrats and all.

    BTW the OP is "LarryMoe"…………….. not jerry. Visit Kustomrama website and search for "Jerry Bergs 34 Ford" or google that for the entire history back to 1955.

    I'll try posting the pic I took a month ago, but it could be deleted because it is not HAMB worthy, meaning it is not "Traditional"

    I remember that car when it was gold from either or both Seattle and or Tacoma shows around 1959/61 when I went to those shows on Dad and kid weekends. It was a great looking car for that time frame.
