Take a closer look at the '51 Ford!

Doug Thompson the original builderaround 1975

In and around 1961- 65 Doug Thompson hada shop in Sugar Creek, Mo. or possibly it was in Indep. Mo., I just rememberthe shop, at that time it was called Thompson & Hall, I with others wouldstop by to see what they were working on, they had a large building but neversaw many cars, Ido remember a 53-55 Ford F-100 that was under constr., I nevernew Thompson or Hall, just kids you know, I went to school with Sydney Hall,nephew of the Hal, never new his first name, he had a really nive 55 Chev. 2dr. that was painted buy his uncle. A friend in school by the name of DarrylFike worked for the pair for awhile, don't know what he did there buy the wayhe hot wrenched the hood on my 56 Chev. to shave the hood & the way he heated the rear springs to get itlow, I still remember my dads reaction, not good. Did replace rear springs,with dad looking over shoulder. Never met Doug, I don't believe, did know somefriends of his, one guy I bought a great 57 Olds. mild custo, guys name isSonny Rodgers, told me on a job site that they had used the hood of his towtruc, to setup a louver press. towed backhoe with the truck. I've seen his workon the Hirohata clone up close and it's amazing how they figured out all thepieces to build that car. Just some old memories I thought I might pass on.Just remembered the kid who I heard painted his Merc. was brother to RandySwayse, a guy I went to school with, small world. Buy the way I saw the Merc.clone at one of the Cowtown shows, have many pictures . Just goes to show younever can say who will succeed
