Clyde has been with CAL-RODS for 5 years. He's also one of those many proud Baldwin Park High School grads. Clyde has owned his 36 for six years. A few highlights are that the car is total stock, with a white vinyl top, and a very cool rumble seat. The 36 was originally restored in 1970. He also has the original license plates which he obtained from his Grandfather.
When you see this car you kind of step back in time. It reminds you of an old black and white movie with the car just tooling down the highway.
This is a beautiful old car. Hope you get a chance to see it. This is just another example of the unique cars we have in the CAL-RODS.
