I was inspired almost a year ago when I first came across Richard Scaldwell's GN JAP creation. I started gathering parts in August with the purchase of a Ford flathead. Then red oak beams that had been aged 10 years, then Model A axles, and recently a Ford T5 trans. I've always been interested in cars, and was very passionate when I was younger, spending hours drawing them and working on them. I'll always treasure the time spent going to shows with my grandmother and her 64 Chrysler Saratoga 300. Since coming across the GN JAP, I've spent countless hours looking for and reading up on as much material as possible. I know I cannot duplicate his masterpiece, but I will try to pay tribute to what I think is one of most beautiful creations on four wheels that I have ever seen.
