    Biography
    My name's Luke McLeod and I got interested in "old cars" back in about 1984. I was 9 then and a family friend, Paul Easley, ran a little restoration and paint shop (Oak Leaf Autobody) out of his home garage. He had a '36(?) Ford Woody Wagon, a Willey's P/U, and a '35 Cad LaSalle Coupe resto project. He had more cars than he could drive to a show, so my family started tagging along and driving the spares and the swap-meet van. He sold off all but the Cad by the time I was 15 and I got out of it for a few years. When I was 19 (1994), I met my wife Heather and accidentally stumbled back into rodding. Her family is big into it. I had been kicking around the idea of building a Model A for years, but really didn't think I had the cash for it. My brother-in-law Mel suggested that between what scraps the family had and the scraps of a few good friends, we could build a rusty 'A P/U. We started it the spring of '05 and I was driving it a year later. 'Been driving her ever since.
