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!
