    William Luckey started Luckey's rod run to the Chicken Oil Company. I didn't know the man but saw a lot of nice rods at the funeral home on the way to my shop this morning. Found this obituary on their website.

    Condolences to family and friends if they are on the HAMB. Just thought I'd let everyone know because there have been some threads in the past about Luckey's Run.

  6. I have know Luckey since 1993. He had a rod shop behind his house back then and mainly worked on '34 to '40 fords. Did mainly frame work, a/c and wiring. Made his own harnesses and string wrapped them. I worked with him from '93 to '94, most of what I know about building cars I learned from him. What he told me was "Luckeys Lunch Run" started out, some time in the '80, with 8 or 10 guys in and around Conroe, Tx driving to College Station, TX for lunch the first weekend after Jan 1st rain or shine. He loved '40 Ford coupes and owned quite a few of them. He was known to be the most knowledgeable on '40 Ford and how to hotrod them in the state of Tx. The last time I saw him was at the Sealy, Tx nostalgia drags last year or the year before, he was there with his daughter. I always had a good time when I was around Luckey, he was full of great stories. RIP Luckey.
