About

Now this was an very unusual car. It was a 1923 Ford steel body but had the doors welded shut which was very typical of the early built rods. The windshield frame was home built and the interior bench seat was dried out ripped horsehide. I thought it had not been touched in years but the Pinto 4 cylinder OHC engine indicated someone played with it. I found this when I was making a U turn in a Scarborough neighbourhood and spotted it in the back of an open garage. I did the knock on the door and is this car for sale thing here. It was, it was dirt cheap and in my garage the same day. I tinkered, got it running, added the fiberglass pickup bed, blanket over the foam seats, some huge Mickey Thompsons and drove the neighbourhood for a few months. My neighbour was having a party one day for his Navy friends and one of them made an offer I could not refuse on.

It went to Burlington and I have never seen or heard what happened to it. I suspect it is buried in the back of a different garage now just like it was before me.
