My name is Carl Breitenbach, I'm an auto parts salesman for
Smothers Auto Parts and Performance Accessories
http://www.smothers.com/ the largest speed shop north of San
Francisco in Santa Rosa. I've been in the parts business for over
30 years. My job entails the sales of all auto parts including all our
performance lines. I am also in charge of putting together our
annual custom car show through which I've met many
acquaintances in the show circuit. I've brought in many cars to
display in out show room, including numerous cars of Tim Kerrigan
the owner of Redline oil, including last years street rod of the year,
America's Most Beautiful Street Rod Title goes to Kerrigan's Red
I've put together a few street rods in the past but now Ive finally
decided to go for broke with a car made specifically for show.
Behind every good man is a great woman. This project would not
be possible with out her love and support!
David and I road tripped from California to Maine and back again
to pick up the car
