By now you know that we at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff have been resurrecting Tom Medley's (Stroker McGurk's) 1940 Ford coupe that was all but destroyed in a fire in his garage last fall. We took on this daunting project with help from a lot of suppliers, as well as individual donors. It's been a series of challenges, but we think that we've come a long way.
Here's a before and some after pictures. We'll take it to Pomona today for the LA Roadster Show. The intent was not to have it done, but to give folks an in-person update on our progress. Plans are in process to have the car completed and to present it to Tom officially at the Good Guys West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton in August. Watch for more news on this event soon. In the meantime, we hope to see you there at the Hot Rods & Custom Stuff booth in Building 4.
