It's the "Ramblin Rebel" from Old Miss, and it follows in the tradition of the "Ramblin Wreck" from Georgia Tech.

There was a thread a while back on this car. Isn't it used at the University of Mississippi football games? I couldn't find it in a search.

Ole Miss' Alumni page has a story on this car and its owner:
https://www.olemissalumni.com/alumni...ramblin-rebel/

"Tad Provence...couldnít help but feel the rumble of Georgia Techís jalopy during his 42 years in Atlanta. Evidence of the car is everywhere ó even on the cover of the Atlanta phone book. At one point, the carís driver lived across the street from him...Then, something happened that for Provence, was Providence. Expanding his carpeting and flooring business in the late 1990s, he bought an 800-square-foot metal building previously owned by a car buff. Inside were the scattered, disassembled pieces of a 1930 Ford Model A Sport Coupe...The painstaking restoration began in 2005, and lasted more than two years."

They built 5 million of them,enough to cross the country coast to coast...5 wide!!!. There was an estimated million of them still around by 1950,when the 'holocaust' for the A ended and people started hanging on to them.There are enough restored cars to fill every museum that wants one,with plenty left over.Paint it red and blue with a white top and festoon it with school decals?If that's what you want,go for it...hell fill it with concrete and used it as a door stop..

Personally, I see something terrible. Such a 90 year old vehicle does not deserve to be vilified. It is better to get the old patina! This is often more difficult than spraying colorful new paint.

For Hot Rod are half modern "plastic" cars - z. B VW Golf - painless to tinker.

Years ago there was a guy that had one painted in Oklahoma University colors that drove it to Dallas every year for the Texas/OU football game at the Cotton Bowl. I thought it looked good and I was from Texas.

Hey, where are you old miss people? Don’t be so quiet. It’s perfect for what they use it for.

Thanks for the info; the "interesting" colours of this car make sense now.

I don't know what to say. I'm lost for words.

It's a shame to see what some old cars are put through.

The caretaker for that car is a member of this board, I'm sure he's seen this.

There’s a butt for every seat, mine wouldn’t be in that one though. He probably loves it
and he can find it easily a a National Convention.

I was wondering when anyone would realize this thing was out there in the "wild". I can still answer questions about this machine.
By the way, the Blue is a Mazda color. I didn't get to choose the color, I just have to repair any scratches.
