Like Father, Like Son

Must run in the family, I guess.

In case you’re wondering. The car is a 1956 Simca Aronde. Since my father (and my mother for that matter) is French, his hot rod platform at the time would have to be a French car. This car was built in the mid 1980s and created an uproar in Europe, becoming the most iconic French hot rod of it’s time.

The car was on several automotive magazine covers, including Autoweek!

It was finally shipped over to the good ole US of A to compete with the American muscle we know of out here.

Sadly, it has sat in storage since the early 1990s rotting away, but last year my father pulled it out and decided it was time to resurrect the famous “Omlette Baveuz” .

I cannot wait to drive it! On top of that, my dad is babysitting this sweet 1932 Ford HighBoy.

Now just wait till I find a buyer for the S13 and pick up my 54 Chevy. Yum!

  1. As long as the R32 isn’t leaving your hands, I’ll be totally in favor of you selling the S13 and getting your dad’s car. It looks nice and I can’t wait to see what you’ll do to it!

  2. Thanks my Teddy. I can’t wait to cruise the Omelett with you and Billy…Then perhaps one day we can build a Bonneville car the three of us and share driving duty…

  3. That’s awesome! Gotta love automotive family tradition. 🙂

    Sorry I didn’t follow through this weekend bro- my car ended up taking a dump on Friday night and eating up a lot of the weekend. Text me if you will be free this coming weekend and maybe we can do lunch- I’ll be out your way again all weekend!
