    Back in the 1970's I used to have a '39 Ford DeLuxe. I think about it often and I sure miss that old thing with its 85 hp flathead V-8. It was a neat old car - and attractive also.

    I always like the looks of the 39-40 Plymouth Coupe also. My Dad had one, but that was before I was thought of. 39-40 Ford excellent also. I can dream about having one anyway.

    My family has a '40 Ford Deluxe coup, all original and working including the factory radio. It was my father's until his death 3 years ago. It is on it's 2nd set of tires, and has the original set in the trunk. The previous owner, who put almost all of it's 60000 or so miles on it, kept a log each time he drove it, starting and ending milage, destination, etc. and I think that is still in the glove box. It's in San Diego and will be sold one of these days. Very cool car!

    Oh man, that's just way too cool of a pick up truck. You probably haul gravel and rocks n stuff in it, right?

    Back in the 70s I had a Nova SS that I wish I still had. :-( We have a Model T that's in pretty good shape. It's sitting in our garage.

    39 Standard Coupe is the best looking.

    The three, IMO very subjective opinions on the most iconic hot rods:

    Any '32 Ford.

    Any '40 DeLuxe Ford, PU or not.

    Any '55 Chevy.

    and that's it...except for maybe a Lowey '53 Studebaker Coupe with a Bonneville look...but that's a stretch.

    I'm stubborn and reactionary about hot rods.

    Chango, My dream car was and still is a 55 chevy preferably a convertible. I saw a 53 commander coupe dressed in black this past week and it was cherry. I drooled all over it. One of my friends and I put a 327 in his back in the early 60's. I was 13 and he was 18 and I was thrilled to be able to work on it and then when we took it out for a test ride we passed a deputy sheriff. Don't know how fast we were going as the speedometer wasn't hooked up and of course it didn't have a tag yet. The sheriff told us to get a tag and slow that thing down. LOL (That was a long time ago) Jackie B.

    My dad had a 39 ford sedan as a work car. It had a floor shift and a toggle switch as well as a key ignition. It was black with a kind of purple colored dashboard and window trim. It smelled dusty all the time inside.
    I would spin the wheels when the folks would leave for the weekend on the gravel road a block south of our house. My sisters finally ratted me out though.

    Back in 1957, I borrowed $250 from my Father and bought a 1932 Ford 5-window coupe, model B, 4 cyl. Next time you see my Wife (girlfriend at that time)ask her about the roof leaking when it rained. That is one of the 15 or 20 cars that I owned before I was 20 that I wish to hell that I still owned, like several Model As including a station wagon, 36 Ford coupe, 36 Chev coupe, several 40 Fords, Mint 27 Buick, rare 42 Pontiac. Oh Well!! Larry Evans

    My first car was a 37 Plymouth 2 door if it rained in the next county it wouldn't start. I always had trouble starting it during the week found out later . My brothers would give me a shove and it would fire up they always would help with no bitching.---- they had been using the darn starter to make it go up and down the driveway. Still miss it $49 dollar special from my great uncle and he threw in a 10 gauge rem double spur hammers sawed off but legal length. Still have it, can pattern a car at 20 yards or so. I haven't shot it since the 60's. KEN
