My Dad... 1965. 1930 Ford Model A Coupe... and Hemi

Growing up, I remember seeing these pictures.  I must have been about 5 or 6.  I remember sitting around for weeks after that drawing pictures of hot rods with Hemis...  It "ruined me" for life.  Hemis, Hot Rods, history, and we even tried to chase the car down many years after with no luck.  But at least there's these two photos.  The stories and memories he speaks of are really fun to hear...

So I raise my glass to my creator.  And damn you for giving me this bitter sweet disease!  HAHA!  :)

If anyone in the Iowa or Illinois area knows the whereabouts of a 1930 Model A with a 331 Chrysler Hemi, double z-d frame, no chop, heavy channel, 58 Chevy Tail lights...  etc. etc.  and it looks like this car, please post here or email me.

Yeah Man really cool, we are all subject to our fathers influence, thank God they had good taste and cool style. it's been the same story for the majority of my car culture friends including you. Looking back over the years it has amazed me how much that one aspect of my life has also shaped it. Talk to you soon.

I love seeing classic hot rods people owned and the stories behind them. Your dad had one cool ride!
