|This is my 1929 Ford Sport Coupe
that I have owned for more than 60 years. It's a rare Dual Side Mount Deluxe
Model. I did a ground up restoration of this car in 1955 when I was 16
years old. This taught me all the basics of automobile mechanics, and launched

occupant), the car looks exactly the same as it did when I completed the
restoration in 1955 and still runs like new.
