Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1929 Ford Model A Custom/Hot Rod Pickup

From "Man Cave" to highway, this 1929 Ford Model A custom/hot rod pickup demands attention.

Robert Blockoff owns this awesome Ford Custom. What started as a “Man Cave” decoration ended up a hot rod.

"I recently picked this up from a really good guy in California. I had it shipped to Idaho, where I polish it way too much!"

"It started out with a gentleman in Indiana, who was at a local Ford Swap meet. As it turns out, he had just completed a man cave in his basement and saw the cowl sitting there. He thought, 'Man, that would make a really nice display piece in my man cave.'.As he was walking out, the fellow he just purchased it from said, 'Let me know when you get it on the road.' That statement stuck with him and when he got home, he decided there was a better life for the dilapidated cowl than sitting in his decor... and this is what he ended up with!"
