1923 Touring T Bucket, 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook, 1967 Jeepster Commando

Until recently,  the only experience I had working on cars was as the brake pumping tool girl for my dad. I never really had an interest in work on cars. I’m sure, it had a lot to do with the fact that  I found fetching tools for my dad boring. If only I could have that job again!!

As I sit and write this post, today would have been my father’s 62 birthday. He had always dreamed of buying a 1955 Thunderbird. Unfortunately, he let life get in the way and died before he got his dream car. With the passing of my father , my priorities changed. I realized that life is too short, no! I’m not going to let my dreams die!  However, they have changed a bit.

Okay, enough of this sappy stuff .

My dream car has always been a 1969 Camaro SS.  Some day!! Until then let’s talk about the cars I can afford now.  I got my first wild hair to restore a car, when a friend told me about her boss’ 1975 International Scout II.  I didn’t even know what it was, but I knew I was going to buy it. A friend and I worked six months restoring the Scout II. Upon completion, I realized we made it to pretty to take off roading. So, with nothing left to do on it I decided to sell it. After making a nice profit, I got the restoration bug. In the past year and a half I have bought and sold eight classic cars. My friend and I have worked on  or restored all of these cars. Currently I have a 1923 Touring T Bucket (Name Double “D” T), a 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook (Named Cranbroke ), and a 1967 Jeepster Commando (Named FARGUS after my dad).

  1. Hi Jennifer… I absolutely love the colors on the ’51 Plymouth! I have the same vehicle and am looking into original factory colors to paint. That looks like a Nile green with some sort of cream top? If you have any side pics of the vehicle, could you PLEASE email them to me? Plus, what exactly are the colors of the car? Thanks so much!
