Featured Member of the Week: Mr. Horsepower

Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m 64 years old, and am a retired cabinetmaker.

How did you first get interested in this hobby/passion?

My dad gave me an unfinished 1959 Ford 6 cylinder on my 15th birthday and told me that if I finish it by my 16th birthday, it was mine. From then on I was hooked.

A 1932 Ford 3 window Coupe Blown Big Block, a 1932 Ford Phaeton Street Rod (wife’s ride), a 1940 Cadillac Limousine Series 72 (on 325 made), a 2003 F350 Dually (my everyday driver), a 2002 GMC Envoy (wife’s everyday driver), and a 1995 Bayliner Capri 22ft (small Block Chevrolet).

All the diverse and interesting rides and what they have to offer.
