Working on Paul's 1936 ford truck frame.
It's what I call a "reframe"
Removing the old modified chassis and replacing with our new design.

Not his truck, just a cool old picture

13 years

Lori and I started Riley Automotive 13 years ago today. ( got business license )
 Pretty fucking weird to think about.
I had no job, I had no money, no rich uncle. A $20.000 desk (same one I'm at) and
a passion for old hot rods. I will have some new products this spring. (and a new website)
Keep your eyes peeled..   eriC
