Robert & Christine's outstanding 1940 Ford coupe has a great story behind it. The car was started by Robert’s father-in-law and he did a lot of the body work. He even rebuilt the rain gutters that had been removed. He told Robert that was one the hardest repairs he had ever done.
His father-in-law left the car to Robert all in pieces with most of the pieces there. Robert spent three years putting it together and making it the beautiful ride it is today.
He has done a few local shows and plans to do a lot more. I happened to be at the Pumpkin Patch Show when he picked up his first trophy. Great car, Robert. Glad you, Christine, and the car are with us in CAL-RODS.
