Dave Hinrichs  –  1931 Ford Model A

This car was originally built in 1931.  It’s life ended way too short, and somehow, it ended up in a muddy wash-out by the Little Blue river.  In 1980, Dave dug it out of that wash-out and slowly, he brought it back to life as a modern day Street Rod. He began with the rusted out body by replacing much of the drivers side.  The frame was hand built, he put in a 350 Chevy motor, and painted it a metallic copper.  The interior is a plush velour with the seats coming out of a 1971 Mercury Capri. Later on, Dave added cream color graphics to give it that Street Rod look.  This is no trailer queen, as Dave loves to drive it everywhere.  He has driven it far north to Minnesota, down south to Oklahoma, and everywhere in between.  Those trips are fewer now, as Dave has added two other vehicles that get a little more driving time.  A yellow and black 1969 Camaro was his next project, and recently, he completed a 1979 Mustang Indy Pace Car.  A wonderful Trio of cars.
