Jim grew up in Lawncrest, Philadelphia. He went to Olney High School where he bought his first car, a 1957 Chevy for $300 in 1965 with the money he made working at SS Kresges 5 & 10 after school, and that was the start.
After Jim graduated he started his trade as a Tool and Die maker. Soon after that he bought his stock 1932 Chevy and that was the start of his 40 year quest to build a Hot Rod. Driving it on and off through the 60s, 70s, 80s… Jim, finally got it to almost the way it is today in 1994. The maiden run was to the Nats in York, Pa. And what A ride that was.
After several down years, Jim found a stock stick six Ford Falcon in not to good of shape in back of a garage in Churchville Pa. And the quest started again. This time only about 10 years for this one.
Cars have always been a big part of Jim’s life and have gotten him through some very tough times.
