Dec. 19, 2015 marked the 5th Annual Mid Decembrrrr Run that put on in central KS. This year we made a loop from my home town of Gypsum, KS over to Strong City, Emporia and back. We left Gypsum with almost 30 people and by the time we rolled into Emporia we were close to 40! It was a day of great times with great people and that’s why I do it.

One of those bucket list shows that so many of us will never get to attend is the Mooneyes Japan show in Yokohama. My buddy John Wells of the Retro Rewind, Vintage Torque Fest and Iron Invasion has been going for years and this year was kind enough to send some photos over to me to share with all of you. I didn’t ask him until a bunch of the photos that he had taken were already spoken for so I’m super appreciative to him for carving a few out for us. I hope you enjoy them!

Tis the season. It’s that time of year where every loved one of a car guy or gal is frustrated by the question, ‘What do I get them for Christmas?’ Typically us car folks kind of get ourselves what we want, and the things that we haven’t gotten yet are usually because they can be rather pricey. So I’ve put together a list of the Top 10 Car Guy Christmas Gifts list. When I say car guy I mean car guy or gal, and I’ll be looking over my own list to get a couple special car folks something great for Christmas.

The 2015 Rocky Mountain Auto Show ran from November 27th through the 29th. If you have your car in the show it’s a good excuse to spend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Denver. Load in was on Wednesday, seeing the photos on social media had me excited for the trip. The forecasted 8″ of snow in Denver made me less than excited. We finished up Thanksgiving dinner and headed west. 7 or so hours later, a couple of them driving in near white out conditions, not being able to see any of the road surface was not fun but we got there.

We showed up a little late to the 2015 Hobo Happenings, hoping to let the sun warm up the streets of Douglass. It didn’t work. Still close to 100 cars and their owners braved the chill to hang out and enjoy each other’s company for the last outdoor show of the year in this area.

For the last few years I’ve been attending a small town show not too far outside of Wichita called the Hobo Happening. Being that it’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving in Douglass, KS it’s been either 50 degrees or 35, this year was closer to the 35 and a stiff cold wind. Still with all of that they had a great turnout this year.

Scott Mills’ 1928 Model A Sedan : The Right Recipe

 Model A sedan hot rod

“No, that’s not for sale.” We’ve all heard it before, the car sitting in the field every time you drive by and when you talk to the owner they tell you it’s not for sale. That was the story when a buddy called Scott Mills and told him of a Model A sedan and a pickup in a yard a couple of cities away.

 

 

Scott Mills’ Model A Sedan
 hot rod model A

Mills and the Model A owner became friends, to the point where the car owner would make his late model car purchases from Mills’ main job as Sales Manager at Quality Motors in Independence, KS. They would keep in touch and from time to time the owner would tease Mills asking if he was ready to purchase the Model A yet then letting him down by not selling the car.

“He wanted you to have first shot at the car,” it wasn’t the sentence that Mills wanted to hear. Unfortunately the world had lost another car guy. Mills purchased both the pickup and the sedan and promptly sat on the sedan for a few years while ideas of hot rod glory rolled around in his head. He had to have the right recipe to make this a great hot rod.

There are so many factors that come into play when building a cool ride. Stance, chop, drivetrain, paint, all of them come together to make a good car into a great car. When I first saw Scott Mills’ 28 Model A Sedan, it was the paint that drew my attention.

The paint combo caught my eye because of it’s unique layout and custom color. Mills custom mixed PPG paint for the project. Painting the body lines PPG Jet Black was the perfect offset for the custom grey/green body color. Mills applied the paint himself. In addition to the job at Quality Motors and owner of Quality Paint & Body, Mills also owns his own hot rod shop called Scott’s Rod & Custom.

Mills put a lot of effort into the sedan’s body before that custom mixed paint was sprayed. Channeling the body 4” down over the custom built Hot Shoe frame was the perfect amount. While it could have gone deeper Mills wanted to be sure to have room for a back seat for the kids. The top was chopped 4” as well before having Stitches Fine Upholstery cover the original style soft top with a modern textured vinyl. The same vinyl was used to cover the visor for a unique look that I dig. To finish the body mods a fuel filler was frenched into the driver side rear panel. Many Model A builds swap the grill for a 32 shell, a great look but this car shows that you don’t have to do that. 3” was taken out of the stock grill shell, giving it just the right height. A pair of Dietz style headlights round out the front end look.

Behind the chopped stock grill a 355 4 bolt engine takes center stage. Jack’s Engine & Machine in Erie, KS was called on to build the engine which is balanced and features 0.30 over forged pistons, MSD HEI distributor, polished Edelbrock tunnel ram intake and custom Jet Hot coated headers built by Mills. A turbo 350 trans with a B&M shift kit backs up the stout engine. In the rear a 9” Ford rear end is packed with a Curry center section, 3.50 posi gear and Strange axles.


The Hot Shoe frame features a Pete & Jakes all chrome, 4” dropped & drilled Super Bell Axle, hair pins & uni-steer cross steer rack in the front with disc brakes. The rear suspension is a triangulated 4-bar with polished coil-overs. Wheelsmith steel smoothie wheels with Firestone tires all around give the car the right look. The fronts are 5” wide with 6.70×15 wide whites and spider caps, the rears are 10” wide with 10.00×15 cheater slick wide whites and more spider caps.

Inside the stock dash was replaced with a 32 Ford dash, under that is a Flaming River chrome tilt column topped with a Con2R two tone black & white wheel. The Eddie Barrett bomber style front seats, custom made rear seat and custom door & side panels were all covered with black tuck & roll embellished with pinstriped stitching by Stitches Fine Upholstery.

All of that came together to create a killer hot rod that draws attention everywhere it goes. Scott is working on a few other projects at the hot rod shop including a 50 Merc that should be a bit more comfortable for long drives with the family. Stay tuned!
