A couple of weeks I befriended one of Gary L Wales neighbours Johnny Martinez on Facebook, turns out Johnny like Gary is accustomed to winning the odd motor show prize.
The immaculate small block is “kickin’ about 385 hp”.
Johnny’s Ford is equipped with disc brakes and the steering uses a Chevrolet Vega steering box.
Notice below that the door only has two hinges, that’s because Johnny lowered the roof three inches and dispensed with the top hinge.
Over the last 28 months Johnny’s ’29 Ford has won 27 awards below Johnny is seen with the Big Red Machine Bike and Car Show award he won in 2011. Here is a link to a clip from the show which comes with a parental advisory on the sound track.
