Walter Andersen of San Diego, California. Walter had a Ford Model A Tudor that he painted 1956 Dodge Royal Blue metallic. He left the original running gear in it. The front was dropped a little, and he ran it with 16" wheels featuring "big & littles" tires. It had a white Naugahyde interior and a white Vinyl top. Walter recalls that it wasn't fast, but it was fun to drive. He put juice brakes on it to make it safer. In 2013 Walter still owned the car. By then, much of the old paint had peeled off, the engine was out, and the car was kind of buried in a barn. It had not been on the road for at least 35 years.
