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
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.
Had only my 9 year old girl and her friend to help me. It was crazy to have this 2 ton beast lurching around every time I hit the brakes. My girl decided that this will be her car when she starts to drive, and I’m cool with that. She helps me when I work on it.
A sleek little black Studebaker Lark caught my eye in West Virginia. Bought her and drove her home through a blinding rainstorm, didn’t even leak, but boy those old wipers got a workout!
I remember when I was 13 or so he was going to get rid of it, but I asked him to save it for me
Luckily my father had me under cars since I was little fixing stuff has been a major help. But as I get older it’s a bit harder to do the things I want to do with it. So few things are contracted to mechanics.
I started this project with my dad when I was 14.
I’m currently 21 and close to graduating from college with a degree in electrical engineering.
