Cool story. It was nice to see the family restore the car. A lasting memory of their father.

I met that guy at a few shows. He was very enthusiastic about that car, and what he did to it. The story did not mention that he put a hudson 6 cylinder engine in the car in the 40's. He used wooden blocks to make motor mounts. He had to modify the drive shaft. It has been 10 years since I last saw the car, but still remember him and the car.
