large_hands_grant perspective and what's really important in life is always something to keep in mind. I have just gotten to kind of know @bareknucklepaul (red flannel) over the past year even though he's been building bikes and parts for a long time in St Louis. I took this photo of him in Japan last year and was shocked to find out just now his well established and well equipped shop was hit by a tornado today and he lost a great deal of equipment and more. It's too soon and paul hasn't asked for help, but always be grateful for what you do and don't have in this life. Things change in an instant. I don't like having examples like this with hard working people I know. 2w
  •   goodarthlywd Bad things to good folks always blows. Happy to make something to donate if fundraiser breaks out. 2w

large_hands_grant My uncle Jim bought this 1967 big block 4speed Corvette brand new and only put 43k miles on it before he died last year. I rode in the car a few very special times growing up, my first ride was almost 30 years ago. It made a BIG impression on me...
Of course I would rather have my Uncle back than the car, but my aunt and I worked out a deal over the past year and I'm very happy to have the car stay in the family and in my care. While in Salt Lake picking it up last week, my aunt told me they never drove it out of town ever, pretty crazy to think of. I'd like to think my Uncle would be happy it's leading a new life with me. In California. Miss you Uncle Jimmy. #1967corvette #bigblockcorvette #dreamcar #secondowner #familyhistory

large_hands_grant Today was an awesome day. I got to help my dad @petsco finish up his first hot rod and cruise with him all over town shaking it down. It's been his first early car project and it turned out awesome so far, I'm very proud of him. He grew up on muscle cars of all types from Chevrolet and when I turned to the dark side (Early Fords) I don't think he got it.
Fast forward 15 years and he called me one day saying he wanted to build a "real hot rod" and I knew I had turned him! Over the past 3 or 4 years he's done a ton of research and work honing in on what was what and what he wanted made it happen mostly all in his garage at home. I think today driving it wiped away all those hours of frustration, worry, trial and error, and more as we blasted down the freeway. Proud of you dad! For better or worse I wouldn't be who I am without you and I'm lucky to share days like today with you.
Also, big thanks to @hotrodford for letting me use his shop to knock out some chassis work on the car early on.

large_hands_grant Pretty happy to be visiting my family for a few days and helping get my dad's 1931 Ford coupe hot rod roadworthy. Had to steal this picture from my sister Laura of my dad and I checking out a couple things when her kids wanted to know all the fuss was about so they joined us under the car.
It's the little things in life that are great. My dad taught me all about old cars and working on stuff in this driveway and now we have a new audience. @lbruschke #familyfirst #hotrods #passiton
