Bill has been interested in cars his whole life.  More specifically: hot rods, even more specific: fast, big block 1932, 1933, 1934 chopped Ford Coupe hot rods.
Bill's latest is a "33 Ford 3 Window model 40 coupe.  He built this to his own design concept and specifications, with the help of his good friends, Clayton and Joe Bond of Bonds Rod Shop.  The car was a 2 year build.
The car has won best of show at Amboy, Streator, Peru, Oglesby. It has won many 1st in class and special awards.  In 2011 he took it to several national events: Good Guys at Des Moines, Good Guys at Joliet, Good Guys at Indianapolis and NSRA Street Rod Nationals at Louisville. It was also a VIP invited car at the World of Wheels in Chicago. It was chosen as a top 20 car and competed for the Legend Cup award, and won the most outstanding in class award.
"Many thanks to all of you for the kind words on the car this past year."
See you in 2012....!
