I am very
impressed with your quest and passion for your/our hobby,
if hobby is even the correct word. There is some kind of a bond with
car people that defies logic, but it is there. Your website is also
good, I like your way of showing that “Highboy” is more than a
mechanical entity,,, you project a vision, a soul and a even a being
into Highboy,,,, very interesting. I also share a bit of those
feelings with some of the projects I was fortunate enough to be able
to do. I always felt a little bit of me left with each project at
completion,,, but it was a good bit,,,, so it seems you are correct
in your understandings.
Note from Faith: Woaw, I am so very
honored by this email! I met Dan Fink at the Grand National Roadster
Show 2007 and I was so very impressed with him. He is the nicest, down
to earth, humble man I have met and he took time out of his luncheon
banquet to go check my little Hiboy out and confirmed i do have one of
his early windshields on it :)...
|You have a very
nice deuce there. I loved your website and added it
to my favorites, so I can keep up with your adventures. It looks to be
good reading. My girlfriend thought it was cool to see a woman into
hobby. She knew they were out there, but this was the first time she
had read first hand experiences. Keep up the good work!

Dang! A pretty girl with her own hot
rod! If you could cook, and I was younger, I'd be California bound
tomorrow. Aaah, what the heck. In nearly 60 years, I've learned to
cook for myself. And you probably wouldn't let me drive anyway.
Seriously, it's a breath of fresh air to see you on the forum. Don't
ever stop being a hot rod girl!

|Bravo for your
site and your car ! J'adore !
Very nice hi-boy, definitely one of
my favorite cars next to my Model-T of course. I have been car
crazy since I was a very young girl I am now 32 and just driving
the wheels off of my T that my Dad gave me this summer. He
originally got the car when I was 6 years old and just completed
it 2 yrs ago and then gave it to me. Pretty spoiled I guess
but definitely worth it. I live in Langley B.C which is the hot
rod capitol of Canada, lots of fun
cruising around in the summer time, lots of nice rides out there.
Have fun with your car that's what it was built for, very cool

|Hey, Just a note to say that I really enjoy
reading your web site about hiboy, it really seems the two of you are
meant for each other, I feel that you saved hiboy from the lost world
of 32s !!! I love my car just like you love hiboy and I talk about my
car just the way you talk about hiboy (she's my girl) ! I was at the
primers when you drove hiboy into the show and it was really cool
seeing your goggles/ leather jacket and helmet… I was really glad to
see you win as well… I hope to meet you some day and also check out
hiboy a little closer, after reading your web-site I feel like I know
him really well already !!! I’m sure you will be at the Peterson next
month right ?
I'm Glenn from Florence Ms. and just
kinda stumbled across your website.
I joined the Club Hot Rod site and was just reading threads and came
across one of your posts. You had a link to your website and since
you were a lady hotrodder I was very intrigued. I guess I was
curious to see if you were a real hotrodder or just a wanna be. Well
anyway I went to your site and read every word you posted. It was a
wonderful read. I must say I was very impressed, not only with your
passion for the hobbie, but your knowledge as well. You are very
articulate, do you have a background in journalism?
Those are some great stories about you and your hi-boy. I think
that's too cool for a lady to be that passionate about a hot rod.
Kinda unheard of really. I'm building a 29 Model A Tudor right now. My
daily driver is a 85 Corvette. The "A" is gonna be full fendered, all
steel with a 3" chop on the top. I've got a 77 Vette doner car that I
pulled the 350 and 350 turbo trans out of for it. It's got a Fat man
IFS front end and I'm not sure about the rear end yet. Might put the
Vette rear end in it or go with a triangulated 4 link and narrowed 9
"Got a ways to go yet but I can't wait to drive it.
P.S. You are drop dead gorgeous.

Juste un petit mail pour vous dire que votre
site est génial, a chaque nouvelles aventures vous me faite rêver,
(Just a quick email to say that I love your
website and your adventure always make me dream...)
je suis un ultra passionné de Hot Rod et
plus particulièrement de Ford 32 roadster,
(I am an avid hotrodder and love the 1932

Found a link to you from hotrodders.com. You have a great web site. I
enjoyed your photos and travels as well as your highboy. You seem very
energetic and looks like your having a wonderful time. Now I'm ready
to travel in my old street rod (when it gets finished.) Keep up the
great work, good luck to yoU in all your endeavors.
Hi, I'll try and keep it short. Wow! Let me repeat that........WOW!
Your talents seem endless, you have honored Him by making the most
of the gifts he and your folks have given you. You go girl!
First off, my wife and I own a pristine (3rd owners) 69 Chevelle
Malibu Sports Coupe that is bone original except for the drive
train. Its Dover White with dark blue interior and its license plate
reads: GHOSTBU......get it - kinda silly? Anyway, it runs a 350hp
350, TH350 tranny (soon replaced with a 700R for the OD and lower
first gear) & 3.55 with posi. We're members of Cruisin' North Car
Club here in Sonoma County. I've attached a small file pix........I
couldn't help myself!
Your hiboy is way sweet and appears to be done the way a hotrod
should be....Old School! Nice job on it, nice car and very hot
Next, few months back I discovered FunFinder trailers, now known as
Cikira RV. While surfing for info on small, light trailers I also
found your Houdini Home website. As a former journalist (ABC News SF
cameraman, retired 2 1/2 yrs ago) I'm drawn to good writing,
storytelling, graphics, pictures etc. Things that no longer exist in
TV which is why I bailed when I could. This will seem like paying
you a huge ego stroke, not my intention, but your webmaster skills
are outstanding............across the board!!!!
We've been toying with the idea of a small travel trailer and the 16
foot Cikira model is the one for us. The Houdini Home site with
great pictures, "like we are there" narrative was what sold us on
this company. Yeah........they should be paying you for what you've
done for them! We really enjoyed the website, all of your hints and
ideas and terrific layout. Again, awesome job!
I am simply compelled to tell you how much we've enjoyed your
various sites. I've gotta go now, I want to download your hotrod
song! Happy camping, happy cruisin', happy music.....happy happy!
Very interesting your garage sale discovery, I just wish my 32 had
been as nice as yours. My 32 came to me from Ohio, a Gibbons body, TCI
frame, 350/350 combo. It was a real piece of work. Not the way I would
build a 32 Hiboy. I started by just looking at the car to see what
needed to be changed to make me happy. Alot.
First the HUGE 4x4 wheels and tires to some period looking Cokers with
wide white, 48 Ford caps and rings, with red wheels. Then the
interior, the steering wheel to a flat track four spoke, Gennie swan
neck shifter, Dynamat to kill some of the echoing, lots of little
I finally finished, and it just was not looking right. I
traded for a 29 Ford 2dr sedan with 4 inch chop, all steel full
fendered. Currently I have the 29 and a 31 Ford roadster pickup. They
are both Henry Ford steel.
Love your site and your hiboy. Maybe I will meet you and hiboy in the
future, planning to make it for the LA roadster show in Pomona, June

Hi, My name is Mario and I said hello to you about a month or so ago
at Bob's in Burbank on a Friday night.
Your 32 looks sweet! I think it is so cool that you drive your ride
everywhere. Just wanted to say hello again and hope to see you and
your ride soon again.
Hello HiBoy Girl,
You may not remember me, but I'm Tfeverfred and I sent you a couple
emails some time ago. Well, I saw your post on the HAMB and read
about the movie you had started working on and tonight I am reading
about the progress. I have just two words. YOU RAWK! This movie is
going to be soooo cool! I may be mistaken, but I don't think there
has been a Hot Rod movie made in a looooooong time. I hope it comes
I got the engine for my T today and all is well in my universe.
Kolbrun (my girl) says you are an inspiration, as she has be bitten
by the Hot Rod bug since she started helping me.
Well, that's all. I just wanted to wish you well with your project
and let you know what you are doing is a great thing.
Just wanted to say, Wow! I've been following your progress on your
film and REALLY admire your dedication. (kinda makes me fall in love
with you a little bit! haha!) I wish I could contribute more to your
project, as I have always had a dream of being on the big screen. But
being in MN makes that a little difficult for me and my car! I just
wanted to wish you all the luck and thank you for what you are doing.
I wish I could do more than that and if you think of anything a guy up
here can do for you, don't hesitate to ask!
