Re: 1937 Ford question

I put little visors on my '37 headlights to soften the relatively ugly accessory sealed beam conversion. Fortunately for you, your car is so good looking, it doesn't take away from the over all look.

Re: 1937 Ford question

Re: Bill McGrath,Early Ford Store

When someone I like and enjoy doing business with, -while sharing our special hobby passes away, it hurts.
