  5. Great article, Ryan! I've always appreciated that Hunter Thompson quote and this car and Willy make it so clear that Hot-Rods are meant to be enjoyed and not trailered around in hopes of winning trophies. And that 1959 inspection sticker............priceless.

    i personally saw this car race with us a TROG . And you are absolutely right, he drove the heck out of this car. It was amazing to see it on the sand. And you could tell it was not some repop car or a piece together job. This was the real deal! and its guys like willy that enjoy it drive them like they were meant to be. You wrote a great article on it, What an amazing car!

    The perfect hot rod.

    I loved seeing it at TROG and even had breakfast with Willy and the all the DeLuxe Speed Shop guys.

    Great guys for sure.

    What an excellent hunk of history. Glad to hear it gets used as intended. Willy is one lucky guy to be able to stable that horse. NOT>... fear and PA!

    Great looking car. Glad you're not a literary trailer queen. An enjoyable article. I love flamingokid's " In a burst of dirty thunder...".
  16. While reading I was thinking... perfect, perfect...hum..perfect...
    When I ended I thought, well, I'm just gonna write "Perfect"
    Then I noticed some of you found the same adjective to be the least to say.

    This has got to be one of my favorite features in a long time. I was lucky enough to have a minute involvement in this car right after it got to Colorado from Kansas (I work for said "flipper") and so I got to see the transformation of this car first hand. When we had it, it had a stock 8BA backed up by a three speed trans, and it was one of the neatest "barn finds" I had seen to date. It couldn't have found a better home. I have to agree; this car is not only seen nationwide, but driven hard. It's a testament to not only the Deluxe Speed Shop style, but also their build quality. Those guys know what they're doing.
    As far as Willy goes, well, you hit the nail on the head Ryan. He's a helluva nice guy, and he's an old Ford fanatic, which is what makes conversation with the Deluxe Speed Shop guys fun!

    Also attached is a picture of an original '32 Roadster purchased from the same guy in Kansas, which I'm sure will appear on the HAMB at some time, as it's slated for an Ardun and an early Halibrand quick change.

    Awesome read, beautiful and inspirational car, and eager to read about the roadster! Saw the 3w at TROG and was awed by its preservation and drivability.
  21. I really like this true hot rod....Thanks for posting it boss......

    Wires should be ran more often on our old rides.

    If more feature articles were written like this, I'd probably read them rather than just flip pages looking at pictures.

    Great job Ryan. Not only does that car define what a hot rod is, but the story defines what hot rodding is. If you're not breaking something, you're not driving it hard enough.

    With any pre-1939 I couldn't agree with you more. Want to make a traditional looking hot rod? Throw some wires on it.
    That 32 is awesome. And drive it like you stole it.
    thanks for the story Ryan.

  28. Hot Rods are meant to be driven!! Not carried around the country in a trailer. "Real Hot Rods are Black, Some are shiny, None are finished"
