Joe and Laura have been Cal-Rod members for around 5 years with a short hiatus in the middle. Joe bought his car 5 years ago from our favorite dealer Charlie “T” (another satisfied customer).
Joe has done some upgrades and put in a new trannie.
Joe was also part of the team that got the original Cal-Rods web site up and running; he is a bit of a techie.
Joe and Laura drive their car when ever they get a chance and they always drive to the Cal-Rods meetings, so check it out before you come into the meeting. The car is a real driver with air conditioning, smooth ride, and no problems They have gone on several vacations with the 46 Ford. including 800 and 600 mile runs. The last long trip was to Hearst Castle with a stop off in Arroyo Grande for a car show. Thanks to Joe and Laura for being in the Cal-Rods. The more beautiful cars we have the better.
One last thing; Joe wants to let all the Ford guys know that the Chevy engine was in the car when he bought it.
