This is the car that changed me from being a "casual" hot rod driver into the "anytime/anywhere" hot rod driver that I am today. After a couple of weeks of taunting my dad with a listing on E-bay, we found ourselves with one way tickets to Albuquerque, NM, and road tripping home in a car that would become my daily driver from May 2011, to February 2012. I put about 12,000 miles on it, and even squeezed in a few thousand in the '40 coupe, during those months.
In February 2012, I sold it to Jim Riley, up in Leasburg, MO, and I get to see it a few times a year when he participates in our SWMO, NW Arkansas, and St Louis Hot Rod Hundred events. Every time I see it, it's like seeing my old girlfriend again!
At the Bonnie & Clyde ambush site, just south of Gibsland, Louisiana.
After running hard (about 80MPH) from Conway, AR to Texarkana, I was about 3 miles short of making it to the gas station. Sucks to have that happen in a construction zone.
On the last roadtrip, coming home from St Louis, and making a photo stop in Lebanon, MO.
May 5, 2011. The day that I liberated this one from its garage captivity in Corrales, NM. This was a stop in Albuquerque, NM.
