Tony’s Car Collection

Here are a few of my fav pics of some of my cars. The flamed ’40 Standard has been sold and replaced with a ’40 Deluxe with a better drive train but not as good flame job.  Joe Martin re-did the flames on this  using House of Colors paint (Martin Bros/Iron Resurrections).  The ’33 is a 3-window high boy by Henry and has been drastically altered to arrive at the stance and engine bay size.  It is powered by a 463 CI 525HP Big Block Chevy.  Frame off restored three years ago.  The ’32 Rdstr was the cover car on Rodder’s Journal #10.  Great 6/7 page article on it in that issue. 

The Impala was bought because of it’s iconic ’50s greenish color they called Glen Green.   The ’58 Impala is a 348 CI Tai-Power BBC with a Muncie 4spd soon to be a 700R4.  Also have a ’57 Belair that took 6 years to build and an incredible ’32 3-window Ford Coupe powered by a 700HP BBC all done to the highest standards.  I am truly blessed!!!
