Sometimes some people have a passion for old Fords and start collecting them for their own self satisfaction. Â Dave is one of those fellows who has sought after and purchased a nice collection of early Fords. Â The GG’s tour stopped by his hilltop home and toured his wonderful collection of old Fords, mostly hot rods. Â I thank Steve for the photos and I hope you enjoy them. Â The season is here and now is the time for you to start enjoying your hobby.
I really have a full day today in the garage working on Lucy’s engine assembly.
Here is a partial view of Dave’s collection of Fords. Â I can’t imagine walking into this garage every morning and deciding which car to drive. Â Note the nice garage lighting and floors.
Steve loves 40 coupes and this little maroon one was one of his favorites. Â No need to improve on Henry’s design, its perfect as is.
I know Gary would like this 36 delivery with the orange steelies and whitewall tires.
Hidden in the corner was this primo Deuce tudor sedan with signature orange wheels in place. Â Looks like a 25 louver hood has been added to the stocker.
This view shows a three window and roadster with the treatment. Â Steel wheels are the best IMHO. Â Note the split bones peeking out under the fenders.
No collection would be complete without a 46 rag to take the grandchildren for a sunday cruise. Â Dave likes his rides low in the front.
Here is another little three window for you to drool over. Â Painted undercarriage indicates driver to me. Â The big headlights really stand out on the darker silver fenders.
A true hot rodder also needs a Nostalgic dragster (Beebe & Mulligan) and a stash of Hemi engines to make sure he can Cackle in Bakersfield.
A 35 woody and Deuce roadster were also part of the touring folks who stopped in for a look at Dave’s wonderful collection. Â This looks like Ken’s roadster from IL.
Today’s sedan delivery….Dreaming!
Sporting a GA plate I don’t recall ever seeing this one around the LA area. Â George this is you inspiration for yours. Â The owner was part of the tour group on their way to Del Mar.
