This car the 1937 Ford is a true dream and goal set by me years ago. The car has a multi-functional purposes, besides it is sooooooo damn kewl to drive !
I always say that the ART ROD is a catyalist to promote the possibilities within each of us”
History of this Vehicle
the ‘37 was completed in 1997, with the help of Paul Gansh and Everett Gray.
Plans for this Vehicle
I have driven the ART ROD extensively to various Schools to promote handicapp awareness to young students allong with teaching basic drawing techniques and watercolor techniques with the students. After I have finished a art unit with the students I then explain about the CAN DO atitude and the creation of the ART ROD…which is two words…...”ARTIST and STREET ROD” combined. Then l take the students outside to see this bright red car, l open the passenger door electronically, a ramp unfolds, l drive in, shut the ramp and door and drive away….......the view from my rear view mirror is a huge GASP from the students…..they then understand…...YES YOU CAN !
