This was a project made from various parts, collected over time. Some parts were scratch built and therefore, the start date and purchase price are relative numbers.
Well, another year has gone by and we have had some milestones happen. This has been a good year for us, so, in an effort to recap what has been happening, let’s look back at last years review.
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.
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.
A hearse as my personal vehicle was on my bucket list, and my son made it happen for me.

It’s like a sickness you could say. Any one who has seen the movie “Christine” will have an idea of my mind set when I laid my eyes on my 56 Cadillac.
No matter your thought on what a rat is, or is not, this build deserves respect. It is a labor of love and a well put together piece of machinery.
This 68 Camaro is designed and custom built by Jim Johnson of Jim’s Body & Paint in Geneva ,Iowa.
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.
It has almost been a year. Ten months really, since this idea became something tangible. Since I acted upon my ideas and began to go out and “do something” 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.
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.
