Occupation: Both retired

Car’s make and model: 1940 Ford Deluxe (Hot Rod)

“I love my car because … I had one like it when I was a kid, and my wife, Babs, was born in 1940.  We both like the older cars from the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s.  We bought it 19 years ago from a friend we knew in Canada who built hot rods.  We like the shape of this car and got the stripe put on it when we went to “Cool April Nights” car show 10 years ago in Redding, California.  We drive the car everywhere.  This Ford hot rod has a Chevy 350 in it.”
