Steve Hall- 1932 Ford

    "My father in law had owned this 1932 Ford five window street rod for the past 40 something years.About 10 years ago he started the process of doing a frame off restoration to this car when his wife was diagnosed with cancer. He put the street rod project aside and devoted the next several years taking care of her. She lost her battle to cancer a few years back. He just never regained the desire to start back on the car. I feel like it was due to the fact that there was so much history with the car and his wife since she loved the car as much as he did. The car has just sat in his garage covered up since she passed away.About a year ago he contacted me to see if his daughter and I wanted the car so we could works towards completing it. I was happy as a pig in mud until I realized that I was a little in over my head and lacked the skills and the tools needed to complete this project. On top of all that I am in the floor covering business and as you can imagine the construction and remodeling business has been unbelievably slow these past few years and I am now working a third more hours for half the pay I used to get so the lack of extra tim e and m oney have m ost definitely put a dam per on this project. There is nobody anywhere that would appreciate some help with their project more than I would. My father in law is up in years and I would love to complete this car and see him take it for a drive while he is still able. Thank you for considering my project."

      I am in the construction field myself so I relate to the slow business for the past few years. I am a huge early 30's Ford fan. My mother in law passed away a few years ago to an illness that she had for many years. My father in law is a machinist and we are building a 51 Chevy together. I have a couple of projects of my own but I want to get his completed so he can drive it before he is too old. My father in law also went through a bout with that stuff a few years ago. Best of luck to you and Merry Christmas!

      My wife is a also a cancer survivor, she has been clean for 7 years so I know what it means to support her and put other projects on hold. My vote goes to Steve Hall from one hot rodder to another. I hope that you can get the 32 back on the road soon.

      My wife passed away 8 yrs. ago, so i can relate! It took over 4 yrs. for me to get back to my projects. Please try to get your father-in-law involved if you can. You'd be surprised how much it could help him!Good Luck, you got my vote!!!
