Enter our 1937 Ford Wild Rod. Thanks to Dennis Avery who gave me a name and phone number along with pictures of the car he saw at a car show in Pismo Beach.

Our claim to fame was when we were invited to Blackies (in Fresno) last year.

This classic beauty was purchased from a party to whom I never met or spoke with. My connection was with a young man who had just begun his employment with the owner just two weeks prior. Time and money was spent on paint, tires, and brakes to
