The '40 Ford Coupe is complete and ready to hit the road! We took a little different direction with this car. We wanted this car to be a daily driver; small block 350, TH350 Tranny, and a modest finish on the chassis.
Smitty once again applied the finish & flames and did and amazing job. Sure reminds me of one of my Matchbox cars!

We had such a great time meeting new friends and running into familiar faces at this year’s Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup!
The hospitality to the participants and guests was beyond expectation!
With over 3000 cars on display and 300 builders showcasing their work, Shades of the Past was the highest quality show we've seen in years.
