Over the years we have known many of the people who were busy “way back when”..... creating (while they worked) what would become our hobby of Rodding ! It’s always great to see those who have contributed so much to our hobby......

Jack had a chance to talk with Edsel Ford at the Deuce Dinner. Jack grew up in the small Maine town where Edsel spent his summers as a boy.
