I have always worked on cars and completed a few projects, but always wanted to build a classic car my way.
I found it in a field. I was 15 years old
I chose this vehicle because when I was 15, I a neighbor who had a 1940 Ford Coupe, black, 327, 4 speed with a Indian blanket interior. It was low, black and wicked. I wanted to build a similar car one day.
Once I had a product I believed in, at a price I felt is better suited to people like me, we ordered some. A LOT of hose and A LOT of fittings – probably too much but we believed so strongly that there is an opportunity for a High Quality PTFE braided hose in the market with awesome looking AN fittings that we committed to taking the idea forward.
I’ve always wanted a hearse. They’re beautiful, unique, and versatile vehicles. They’re made to order, so no two are alike.
My favorite thing about the mid 60’s Superior made coaches, is the roof line. It gives them such a sexy silhouette.
My car was in driving condition with a basic small block Chevy . I drove it for a few years while gathering parts to make it a big tire ProStreet. In 2003 it was sent off to Kens Kustom Chassis in Reading Pa to get its big tire transformation.
Now, as you can guess, this festival is centered around apples and scrapple. (For those of you who may not know what scrapple is, it is scraps of pork, seasoned and cooked and put in a mold.)

had the parts just sitting in my back yard for years. We had a brainstorm one day and got a tape measure out and started measuring things, did up some sketches and cut up a scale model to see if I liked it. Showed it to a client and he liked the idea.
This thing is a never ending project and that’s fine by me, as long as I’m doing something to it, I’ll never get tired of it or get bored with it.
Most cars and trucks there were pre 1970, however, there was definitely a presence for later models and they all seemed to show well.
Something caught my eye, so I looked and saw a little old lady in a rocking chair making something crochet, I think .
I saw the front fender on a box so, I went and talked to her about it, thinking it was a Harley.
We tried to make it like a trip, so, you could see what we saw, but, you have to remember, we are not paid professionals, we do this because we enjoy it, so, no critiquing my skills. lol.
While I am a huge fan of Built not Bought, this car demanded to be brought back to life in the way it was intended when originally built.
