"A friend of mine owned this car for 50 years," Chip explained. "But he had it in his for the last 38 years. I knew it was a survivor car, it had only one paint job over the original, and they had a little four-cylinder in it.

If you want to modify [a '32 Ford], go modify that one."

"It's been a pleasure to build one of the cars I've wanted since I was a little kid," Chip recalled. "One of my father's friends had a five-window coupe, and I thought it would be so cool to have one, one day; and today's that day."
