The coolest 1930 Sport Coupe EVER!

Okay, Rick's 1930 Ford Model A Sport Coupe is not new to the local scene, but certainly is worthy of being repeatedly posted on threads, forums and yes now the new fangled Blogger sites...

I love this car! It has more cool factor than ANY painted show car and has more attitude to boot! The car is PERFECT and for those of you who seem to think that cars like this fall into the "R@t R*d" category, you better recheck your definitions and get your facts straight. This is the genuine article! A REAL hot rod!
