Paul Wood's 1949 Mercury Coupe of Richmond Hill, New York. Restyled around 1958, Woody’s Merc was built in the street in, in front of his girlfriend's house. Woody had acetylene and oxygen tanks in the trunk of the car that he would roll out whenever he was working on the car. The car was instrumental in sparking Ken's interest in custom cars in 1958
Ken's Piston Pushers club card. "We were supposed to hand these cards out to motorists if we helped them out if their car was stuck somewhere and we jump-started a dead battery or helped get them out of deep snow, or something like that. Quite ironic, because - at that time we made these up - nobody in the club had a driver's license. Hah!" Photo courtesy of Ken Bausert.

John Consiglio in a 1934 Ford coupe project. The work was started by one of the guys at the 116th Street garages in Richmond Hill. He was in the process of chopping the top, but the car was just a body shell and needed a ton of work, so the fellow decided to get rid of it. He was going to tow it to a junkyard when Sal Consiglio, John Consiglio and Ken chipped in $5 apiece and bought the thing for $15. "After that, we didn't know where we were going to store it and what we were going to do with it so, in a week or so, we wound up towing it to the junkyard." Ken believes this photo was taken in the autumn of 1961. Photo from The Ken Bausert Photo Collection.

Ken Bausert of Richmond Hill, New York City, New York was a founding member of the 1320 Crusaders car club.
