Here's where you'll see and learn about some of the uncommon collectibles I've found while out digging in the early Ford and hot rod world over the last fifty or so years. Most I've found at old car swap meets across America, but I also find some at antique stores and vintage parts dealers, as well as from our customers. It's all part of my legacy preserved for future generations to view and enjoy. I'm a nut for this kind of stuff, whether it's an original Ford item, or an after-market specimen. If you have any such items for sale, please take a picture if possible, and email me here at techinfo@bobdrake.com.
