|WHAT'S NEW? --New pics -- When new pics are put on the site, the previous pics will be added to the pic collection at the bottom of the page. Also, when viewing Our Coupe: Part 6, use MEDIUM text size to better view the parts listing. Having trouble getting connected at certain times? See the note at the bottom of the page. After a self-imposed time off from working on this site, I will add a few pics and maybe some other features as my time and patience will allow. Check back.|

|Well . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..Why not?|
|When I was 17, I liked modifying and tinkering with any car I could get my hands on.
I still do.
When I was 17, I liked the smell of oil and Go-Jo on my hands and the sound of a flathead.
I still do.
When I was 17, I liked to B.S. and share a cool beverage (the statute of limitations ran out a long time ago) with my friends who always had grease under their fingernails.
I still do.
Why is it that so many people work themselves to within one foot of the grave so that they can retire to do what they did when they were 17?
I've never really grown up. I never intend to. This page celebrates those 17 year olds who are trapped in a 50+ year old body and the women who have shared their life and love for the freedom of the open road.
I never cruised Van Nuys or Woodward. But I bet that I had the same feeling as those who did when I first started a car, got my license, and saw what "it could really do". Sarah (my wife of a lot of good years) and I will update this site each month posting more pictures of rods of the northern prairie, talk about the building of our coupe, and other stuff that may (or may not) interest you.
We are driving into the next century wearing our Hawaiian shirts, with a full tank of gas, and with "Little Deuce Coupe" or "Drag City" screaming from the cassette player.
Ride along with us.
Bob and Sarah
