Very well built and thought out Hot Rod. Thank you for sharing!!
Was there a shift knob change? Maybe it is my eyes playing tricks
"....real photographers" ?? C'mon man.......your stuff is about as real as it gets....I always get a lesson in film stashing with you, as well as a starlet spread out upon your roll. That's a great car ! Say cheese, honey !! Big daddy....gonna' make you a star......
Man I love that hot rod and the color.
Great car and a nice guy.
I met him at TROG for the first time also.
Eddie just kicked ass.
He sure made a ton of parts!
This rod looks killer! All the right pieces in all the right places. Even though it's local to me,the only view iv'e had of it ;was the Friday eve before the TRJ show. He was pulling out of Burger King in Sinky,looked and sounded excellent com'n at me. It certianly deserves all the accolades it gets.
Textured to perfection.
I love an honest rod.
It is amiss when a car has a miss. That car is a hittin on all 8. I have never seen a chrome '32 grille before. Was it done very often? And "textured" is such a good word for that car.
Hands down one of my favorite fenderless 32's.
the owner/builder is as cool as the car! every thing Jerry builds is dead on
Agreed. I'm a pretty big fan of his...
Great job, Jerry!
Love this car. Photos really do it justice. Ryan, do you scan your own negatives or do you have them done by a shop? Looking into buying a scanner so I can quit using the local CVS.
I was staying at the Blue Palm in Wildwood and I saw Jerry up by the boardwalk with his car. I just figured he was taking a few pictures. Had I known you were there too I probably would have walked up and got in the way!
I scan my own... The best scanner I've found is the Epson V700.
You should have!
nice to finally meet you Ryan in Wildwood.
Thank you Ryan for the beautiful article and pics. It was a pleasure meeting you and your son.
This car was built with lots of help and input from friends along the way. The Aces and Eights Car Club crew, Larry Kozlowski (Koz on here) , and Eli Horst to name a few.
This old heap is my little time machine..

I was also lucky enough to spend two weekends in a row around Jerry and his car. Jerry is a great guy, I just wanted to stare at his car and take in all the details. It is definitely a car that exemplifies the look most of us strive for. Thanks for the great post Ryan, it was great seeing you on the east coast.
Thanks Ryan I actually looked into a used V500 or V600. They've all had good reviews. The 700 is north of 300 bucks still.
Yeah, when you look up "Hot Rod" in the dictonary, this car shows up!
I would do hoodlum shit with that car.
Remember the Wicked, Evil, Mean, and Nasty picture thread?
Ryan, artistes tend to be over critical of their own work. Damn the "real" photogs, you done good my friend!! Oh, by the way those taillights are just the TITS. Bravo, Carp
Oh my god.... I love it
Just when I think I'm tired of seeing Deuce's, I get PULLED back in. Great car and a fantastic read.
I'm a bit obsessed with this car...
Gonna' have me a 3 winder some day.........................one beautiful mosheen right there! Great pics
