1927 Ford T roadster project. This will be built by the Jr Barons. Don’t you wish you could have been a Jr Baron when you were a kid. I do. A very special thanks to Moon Doggie for providing the project and all that he does for the Barons Car Club. MoonDoggie aka Steve Matlock. Feel free to buy him a beer , he drinks Bud Lite

Remember that tree Trenton stuffed in his Merc, well this is the former tenant of the tree. Looks like he will make a good Baron.

Hot Rodding pass it along

Hot Rodding began in America, it is as American as Mom and apple pie. It has been around longer than I have, and will last as long as we pass it on to future generations. This photo was taken by Rennie Cloninger during the Jr. Barons engine rebuild. The Jr. Barons are young boys and girls that are part of the Barons Car Club Boise Idaho. We  still have some members from the original club started in 1954, and  our youngest Jr Baron is a toddler.We have Barons of all ages, but  like a lot of hot rodders our group is heavy on older rodders. Thats why we believe it is so important for us to share our skills with the children, to help them understand automobiles, and know the joy of building your own hot rod.

If you are a gearhead share your passion for cars, share your skills, share that smile your hot rod brings you. Help the youth of America learn that there is great joy to be had outside of computer games and TV.
