Ask DJ Lyons: 1935 Ford

1935 Ford

Do you like vintage cars?

Have you ever attended a car show? if so, where and when? What kind of cars did you like the most?

As my husband and I wandered around my very first car show, I picked out cars I liked the best. This particular car show was held in Greeneville, Tennessee.

This was one of the cars I thought was quite classy-looking. The car was shiny and red. The headlights and rear tail lights were rather odd and unique-looking. I loved the rounded look to this car. It also looked like the trunk would have been nice and roomy.

I could almost imagine that a husband and wife would take this car to go shopping back in 1935. The wife would lead her husband around from shop to shop. She would buy this dress and that coat and this pair of shoes. They would take their packages out to the car and put them in the trunk. The trunk would still look so empty-looking due to its vast size. The wife would begin to feel antsy. She would feel like she had not bought enough because her packages barely made a dent or much of a showing.

The husband would growl under his breath as the wife led her spouse to another dress shop.

Of course, if the husband had decided instead to go to a store that attracted him, he might not find himself growling when he found that he would have plenty of room to store large purchases.

So I have now taken you on my little flight of fancy for the car in the above-picture. To watch a short video of this car, click 1935 FORD.

As for my husband, he enjoyed seeing the engine of this car. I'm sure his thoughts never had anything to do with shopping trips. Of course, another benefit of having such a large trunk is that it could hold a lot of groceries. That is a feature that we really appreciate about our own cars.

The front grill on the car was rather interesting looking as well. It gives the car a rather distinctive look. The fact that it was a 2-door car caught my attention with rather small side windows and a very tiny rear window. As far as I can tell, it is a car built for 2 people only. It does not appear to have a back seat. So if the owner had a third passenger, I guess he or she would have to squeeze into the front seat.

By the way, what features do you most appreciate about your car? What is most important to you when you are picking out your most ideal car?

Also, if you were going to own a vintage car, what type would you most like to have?

For your viewing pleasure, here are some other videos of vintage Ford cars I found on YouTube.

GMP 1/18 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe - Black

GMP never disappoints us with their die-cast works of art, and this little '32 Ford is no exception. Done in the style of a "traditional" hot-rod, this 3-window coupe has deep black paint, with a red interior, red steelie wheels, and red trunk accents. The flathead Ford is topped with two Stromberg carbs. As with everything that GMP produces, incredible detailing abounds. Each piece is individually serialized, and the side engine covers may be displayed on or off.
