The 1932 Ford Roadster, An American Tradition...

rough draft

When Mike Richards came to us to build his roadster he had a specific look in mind. That look recalled the post-war era when the Founding Fathers of Hot Rodding were tearing up the Dry Lakes at El Mirage. An era when veterans, turned gearhead, were creating roadsters out of drop-tanks, and applying mechanical skills learned on Sherman tanks to the task of turning recycled junk yard Fords into time-setting record breakers. Cars which, years later, would rise phoenix like yet again as a new generation of rodders tried to one-up their fathers.

So, when this roadster blasts by you like it's on a strafing run, looking like it should have wings, it's no accident.
