I bought my first street rod in 1987. It was a 1933 Ford Sedan Resto Rod. It was a great road car. My wife, Linda, and I put a lot of miles on it. I applied for membership to the ColoRODans after the purchase of this car as a way to meet new people with similar interests. Over the 20 plus years of being a club member, I have made many close friends.
After having the 1933 for a few years, I then purchased a 1934 Ford Sedan. We drove this car to many car shows all over the country. We attended to NSRA Street Rod Nationals in Kentucky in 1994 for their 25th anniversary. This was a fun and memorable trip. Our kids have been going on trips with us from our very first car and have enjoyed being a part of the car club family.
While attending the Rocky Mountain Nationals in Pueblo one summer, I spied a 1937 Ford Cabriolet for sale. I sold the 1934 and bought the 1937 shortly after seeing it. This car also made many of our out of state trips as well as local shows. I will always remember this car as one that was a very unique ride. I sold this car to a guy in Florida.
My next car was my current car, a 1932 Ford 3 window. Over the years I have made a lot of changes to the car to enhance it and make it more my style. Linda and I have made many memories with this car. This past year we drove it to Bowling Green, Kentucky for the 10th NHRA Hot Rod Reunion with other car club members. It was a great trip in which we were able to tour the Corvette Factory and Museum.
I am still working, but hope to retire one of these days. Then I will be able to attend many more shows and events down the road.

We had a great outing at the Colorado National Speedway on the 13th of August, 2022. Here is the video of our group doing some parade laps.
