My brothers helped work the family farm and built home-style hot rods in the 50's and 60's. Some I remember passing wrenches on in the sub-zero Iowa winters, (with a tarp over the side of the car and the only heat from a bare bulb used to see), were a lowered '50 Ford Custom in baby blue and a twin-scooped '60 maroon Pontiac. After school I became an Art teacher and built several rides as daily drivers, including a '62 Ford, '66 Chevelle, and a '49 Dodge pickup.
My project started after a good student passed away due to cancer. She always told me I should do more with cars, as I had pinstriped her Monte Carlo and put sunroofs in for several of the kids in school. The ad for the '51 Henry J tempted me and I spent $500 for the rusting hulk.
My wife loved it!
