that`s just too damn cool!!!
WOW! I'll agree with everybody else...one of the coolest stories I've ever heard. I love the second picture on the first post, and the line, "...and now my first car will be my last." Amazing tale.
I call bull caca...seriously...you want all of us to believe a 70+ year old guy knows how to morph photos on the computer?
jealousy rears its ugly head...
This is the best story I've heard in a long time. It made my day. Congratulations on getting it back.
That's one of the best stories ever, there has to be a movie there some where !!!
Awesome story. Can't wait to see more pics of it. I can't imagine how you are feeling about getting your first car back after all these years.
Can't say anything not already said. Such a cool story and picture.
Epic story. Epic.
You had beter buy a lottery ticket!!!
Amazing! Great story, I'm happy for you, thank you for sharing it.
So many great stories about finding and recapturing that long lost car,,especially Deuces. HRP
Wow what a great story your Mom and Dad were certainly the best letting you get a Deuce coupe at 15 years old just amazing. Hopefully you get her on the road and one day pass the car on to another family member so the story continues for a very long time.
Enjoy your Deuce there's nothing else like owning one.
I can't tell you how pleased I am that you enjoyed the story ! Your kind and some time humorous comments surely made my day! The question was asked what my plans are for the car...well I do like BLACK and I like the original body detail of Ford Coupes so it will (I hope) be very similar to the pictured '32 beauty. The interior will have the original look with mohair upholstery. Red solids and the jury is out regarding www,s. In short it be clean and will be on the same theme as my '39 pictured,which is going to be repainted soon in .....you know it........ BLACK. Thanks again !!!!
Your story is the dream come true of every car guy that has ever sold a car they loved in their youth. Good luck with it and enjoy your second chance, most of us will never get one.
Way cool story!
Wow, awesome story man, brings a smile to my face.
...this is the coolest hot rod pic of all time!!! What a wonderful pic!!!
You have passed Hot Rod 101 with flying colors!!
Bud Crane has NOTHIN on YOU !!!!!
You are living most every HAMB'rs DREAM !!!!
excellent story and happy for ya! Are you putting an original firewall back in the old girl?
Let this be a learning experience to you guys who have your first car and love it..
You had better keep it no matter what or it will haunt you all your life if you decide in a fit of madness to get rid of it. Odds are you will never get it back.
Thanks for the GREAT story, and good luck getting it rolling again! We'll ALL be watchin ya!
I like the one that Drake sells without the holes. Thanks !
Wow what an excellent story, with a great car and picture. Very clever.
Great story i think you are double lucky being that you have got to own that 32 twice.
congrats for getting her back
Hell of a bedtime story ,thanks.
The best part of the story to me is the fact that your Mom & Dad made the move and bought the car as soon as you told them about it. Glad you have it back, should look great in black. Bob
You just might have inspired me to finally drag out my '32 5w. I bought it over 40 years ago. Think it might be time to get 'er done?
Thanks for posting this great story!
A wonderful story. Big congrats to you
