Default Matt gets a '32 Roadster!! Irontrap Garage

Maybe a little too hot rod for some here but a great story and video. A 1932 Roadster that came from a Delorean brother and stored for decades in a tire shop in the Detroit area. It was hot rodded in the '50s and was a feature in a shop till now. Maybe they are still out there?? Youtube channel that I watch regularly. Someone can post a still from the episode but here's a link to it:

Hoard Much Matt You have multiply spares of everything including more cars than you can work on, your driving up the market for us other poor saps.

Just busting your stones.



You seem to truly be into these old cars and their wares, when you looked at those gauges out of that car out of that tool box you looked like a kid on Christmas morning

But I wonder if you enjoy the hunt/find more than the actual hobby?

That was the E-bay listing but the winner never paid so Matt was contacted later with a second chance to buy. He explains it all in the second video, ended up paying according to him $20,000. Looks much nicer with more parts mocked up. He used parts he had been collecting up in case he ever was able to purchase a '32 Roadster.

Have an older friend here in the Detroit area, who was friends with Frank Mack, Tommy Foster, Alexander Bros., etc. who's looking thru some old pictures to see if it shows up. Cool old hot rod for sure.
