Adam, and the ghost of Henry Ford

Adam has the start to his hot rod.
A nice old 1930 Tudor. All original and faded.
It's time to cut it up and build a hot rod.
That's what hot rodding is. Modifying old Fords
Don't be scared or listen to old wife's tales. Henry would approve !
make it faster, safer, fun. Cool , loud and scary , awesome and yours
