ingI can’t think of another shop like ours that builds hot rods and helps with raising funds for a nonprofit. Shelby’s Way benefits from our relationships in the automotive aftermarket industry because some of our fundraising events are car shows and other shows we attend bring awareness and prevention to suicide and mental health care.

Our clients needs also require the finances for us to help. I decided two years ago to take my skills in the shop building cars and working with other businesses in the industry to partner with us to build a 1932 Ford Roadster.

After completion, the car would be sold or auctioned off with all proceeds going to our 501c3 nonprofit Shelby’s Way “Bringing Awareness to Suicide Prevention”. I began by having artist “Jimmy Smith” take my ideas and draw a concept of the finish build.

With the rendering, my 32 Ford Coupe as a example of my of my abilities I was able to contact those manufacturers to help Shelby’s Speed & Kustom on the roadster build giving us even more money raised by donations of parts needed to finish.

Over the next year, I will share here on our new website pictures and text explaining the build process of the project 32 that will help Shelby’s Way maintain the care and needs of our clients. Please enjoy and take a look at the pics attached to this blog and I would like to thank all of those who are involved.
