My love of hot rods started when I was very young. In the mid-sixties I saw a 1939 Ford Coupe. It was jacked-up, nose high and had a scoop on the hood. I never forgot that car - I WAS HOOKED! My first "car" was a 1948 Ford Woodie with a flathead engine. I drove it just once then sold it to someone in New Jersey. My next "car" was a 1950 Panel Truck with a flathead. This truck was my daily driver for the next few years. I met my wife Laura in 1971 and we would go on dates with the truck. I also bought a 1923 T Bucket and sold it minus the flathead engine and front axle. In 1972 I bought the 1932 Roadster I still have today. It was just a body and frame. I used the left over parts from the T Bucket, and slowly over the next few months the car came together. In the early 80's I changed the engine to an ARDUN.
Thirty-Five years later we have driven our roadster to hundreds of car events. In June 2006 we drove to the LA Roadster Show and back.
