I got sober in 2002 and racing has been my passion ever since. Old skool racing is where it’s at. I told my wife of 20 years at the time that I wanted to build a Gasser. She was on board immediately, and that is when the fun began.
My wife owns a costume shop in Old Sacramento and we wanted something to market the store during Halloween.
This car has been in my family since 1930
I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a kid. I have always had an imagination, allowing me to think outside the box and make things my own, via customization, with little to no money. This truck has helped me learn many new skill sets with fabrication and welding.
I couldn’t work in the computer generation and always had an interest in older trucks. My Pop shared the same interest. He is the one who told me that this was the truck for us to work on. He will be 80 this year and still loves to help me work on the “Ol’ Girl”
Bought it in CA on New Year’s Day 2004. Had it shipped to UK and then to Northern Ireland.
Numerous Car Show winner, Also Feature Car trophies!
I purchased my ’39 so I could do Poker runs and cruise nights. I have entered it in a few Car Shows and I did win best GM at a show in Chatman, Ks.
My brother in law purchase it 1966 for $200.
I bought it in 1988 for $600
I am just about finished with this build and just in need of some cosmetic stuff as far as gauges and carpet. I plan on attending car shows this year and put this truck to use.
