Like a Rock! One of Bob's best.........
Great story, Thanks for posting, Congratulations!
Larry, because this is so funny this one is for you...
p.s. but this is another story...
Too cool! Congrats on the reunion!!!
I already started a thread about 3 months back, title is:
FOUND...The Hot Rod that started it all for me!
Hope you enjoy it!
What a neat story Ron, and a great photo too boot. Thanks for
sharing your happy reunion with all of us......
I had to go back and make that picture my screen saver on my computer... It's just too awesome...
A perfect day in Thunder Bay to bring home an old friend !!!
One very happy, Ron
Beautiful story. Congratulations.
Wow! I thought I had a good Friday.
Good for you Ron!
Wonderful story, wonderful.
And that picture on the rolloff is a keeper.
Thanks for posting.
Thats awesome I thought I had the best 32 story on the Hamb but yours beats mine !! That is one nice duece you want your 75 bucks back ha ha !!
Did a bit of clean up on it last night. Very little rust in the usual places and some small dents but the floors look almost new. The frame will need a bunch of changes but that is pure fun. The great thing about being young is that ignorance is bliss, if you know what I mean.... Now I have to go on a treasure hunt to find the missing pieces and that can be just as much fun as the rest of it....
Such a great story. Glad it's back home.
Congrats, Awesome story and 32! Very Cool!
This story almost belongs in Ripley's Believe It or Not. You accomplished the next to impossible. Congratulations, Bud !

Wow. Best thing I've read on the HAMB in a while. Congrats.
I agree with them all, fantastic, brought a tear to my eye. The pictures are priceless.
you look like a happy kid
I got my 47 Mercury in 1967 and everywhere I went people told me that they used to have one and **they wished they had kept it***
I had it for 46 years now
boy, that story put me in a good mood! drinks all around! even if you don't ever get around to finishing it, it's got to feel great just having it your garage again! like an old pal you found out wasn't dead after all!
Ooooooh Man! That is an incredible story, and like many have said, probably the coolest thing I have read on the HAMB.
To have had a '32 coupe as your first car at 15 years old is a helluva' cool thing on it's own, but to get another crack at it 56 years later is truly unimaginable.
I don't care how much chasing or otherwise you did to make this happen, you are one lucky guy!
Thank you so much for posting your incredible story, great looking coupe.
Having just finished reading "Lost Hotrods 11" by Pat Ganahl, thinking what great stories then you come along and top it with the best story I have read on the Hamb. If Pat ever does another volume then this should take pride of place.
I look forward to seeing the project develop. More pictures please!
That is the best story I've read here on the HAMB.
Just today in the morning I thought about selling my first car (64 Ford, bought it 23 years ago) - after reading your story I realized that this would be a bad idea...
A couple more pictures. The one with the kid and his newly painted (with a brush) car was taken on my 16th Birthday. The other one was taken on moving day which was the first time in 43 years that it has seen the light of day. It had been in another garage for about seven years before the previous owners moved to this location.
p.s. Thanks to all for your very kind comments. They have given my wife and me , a great deal of enjoyment !!!
