Willy’s M38-A1

Nellie isn’t General George S. Patton’s Jeep

Jeff Rogers’ interest in the Willy’s M38-A1 goes back to camping and hunting trips he and a buddy used to take.

“The thing was just fantastic,” he said.

The jeep rolled and was totaled.  Jeff moved to Colorado, returned to California and while out with his kids, he spotted a jeep on a trailer with a for sale sign.  It brought back memories of those earlier trips.  He located the owner, a California wine grape grafter who shared stories about grapes and his father who’d been in occupied Germany.

As Jeff turned to leave, the man told him to make an offer.  Jeff posed $500.  The man countered with $2500.  Jeff pointed out damage to the old jeep.  The pair agreed to $900.  Jeff rented a U-Haul trailer, loaded the jeep, and brought it home.

“I immediately started tearing it apart,” he said.  “I must have gotten ten five-gallon buckets of dirt off it,” adding that he scraped and hosed and wondered if the dirt would ever come off.  A whole lot of elbow grease and paint remover led to the discovery of the original Toledo Ohio Willy’s factory data plate.

“It’s got the original number on it,” he said.

Next up was to dismantle the jeep so that it could be reassembled.  The hinge in the back frame was cracked and had been welded several times.  He accidentally cut a piece of the frame off while trying to cut through the welds.  Once repaired, he took the frame to have it sandblasted and primed and ordered a new support from Atlanta.

Jeff enlisted the help of his kids to finish tearing down the vehicle, and then hauled buckets of parts to a guy who would put the jeep back together.  Six months later, the 1952 M38-A1 Jeep was whole and running.  Jeff’s had it for about 8 years and regularly drives it to work and here and there, including a couple of long distance trips.

The M38-A1 was named after his paternal grandmother, Nellie. He’d hoped to drive his father, a Korean War veteran, for a trip down memory lane.

“My dad went into the Marine Corps in 1952 and served during the Korean War, and this jeep is a 1952 so I was hoping to get together and give him a ride in it so he could remember.  I’m sure he drove one of them when they were brand new.”

His father passed away before the ride, so Jeff gave his uncle, also a Korean War veteran, the ride. Uncle Sonny said it looked like it just rolled off the assembly line.

Nellie’s T90 transmission, one of many A1 upgrades, is great for four-wheelers, said Jeff.  The A1, he added, shifted from a flathead engine, flat fenders, flat hood, and low horsepower to a domed hood, rounded fenders, and a whole lot more horsepower.

“It has a whopping 74 horsepower in it.”  The top speed is 60 mph but Jeff’s been advised to keep it at 45 or less.  His uncle said they beat walking.

The engine compartment is lean, clean, and mean.  Original parts were cast iron and very heavy.  Jeff’s reverence for the vehicle leads him to search for stock parts.

“It’s as close to original museum quality as possible.  There’s nothing contemporary on it.”

He even located a grill that was still in its original unopened crate.  The old grill, he said, was so badly rusted that he cut it off and now has it hanging in the garage as wall art.

Goals include taking Nellie camping and playing around the mountains.  When he does, he’ll have the top off and the wind blowing through his hair.  She’s an attention getter, though, and people often stop him, so it might take a really long to reach the mountains.

Cappuccino Cruisers

Car Club Profile – Cappuccino Cruisers – 26 Years Young

Last year, the Cappuccino Cruisers celebrated 25 years of cars, events, and giving back to the community. Plans were well underway for a full season of events and fundraisers scheduled to start in late March or early April. Then the coronavirus pandemic placed a gigantic stop sign in the middle of the road.

The club, like so many others, has had to put its plans on hold due to social distancing requirements. Ray Marchese, the group’s multi-talented president/dj/marketing/fill-any-job-that-needs-doing guy, said that the group was formed in a Folsom coffee shop and originally included about a half dozen car enthusiasts. That number has grown over the years, as have meeting locations, events, and sponsors. One thing that’s remained static, though, is their passion for all pre-1979 vehicles.

Numerous car clubs exist, some are specialized and include only Fords or Mustangs or Mopars or Manhattans. There are many clubs for the ornately painted low-rider vehicles. And there is a movement afoot to encourage clubs to open shows to all vehicle years. There is a car club (or two or three) out there for just about any interest.  American Steel in Lodi requires cars to be pre-1977, made of steel, and American made.  If fins get you excited, there’s a club for those and one for Corvettes, for Cobras, and for Buicks. There’s a club or two for trucks, hot rods, Jaguars, and British cars. And plenty of clubs welcome all makes and models.

Car clubs are also known for their fundraising events to help local organizations and for their shows which usually include trophies, raffle tickets for donated prizes, music, food, and a lot of fun and camaraderie. In addition to these events, Cappuccino Cruisers also hosts regular meetings and cruise nights.

Many of the large events, like “Family Day at the Folsom Zoo” to benefit the Folsom Zoo and another large event usually held at Fry’s Electronics in Roseville to benefit the Placer SPCA, had to be cancelled, along with the longtime Shriner’s fundraiser. Marchese said that it’s unclear whether these will be rescheduled this year.

Monthly theme nights are always popular and include “Tribute America” to honor veterans, military, police, and fire men and women. In August, Rancheros, El Caminos, and trucks are celebrated, with convertibles, sports cars, and orphans rolling in September. October is a Trunk or Treat event for children of all ages. The wagons, woodies, panels, and sedan delivery vehicles night, usually held the last Wednesday of May, was cancelled.

With all of the cancellations and rescheduling, car enthusiasts can’t be deterred. The cars need washing, cleaning, engine maintenance, upgrades, and they need to be driven. Members of this club have come out to pay respect to graduates, celebrate birthdays, and otherwise strut their stuff in many creative ways.

The club’s motto of sorts is “What can we do about things?” This question, said Marchese, led to the formation of some interesting partnerships. The club, he explained, has raised funds to assist the Folsom Police Department’s mounted and canine units, has provided Folsom Zoo passes to parents. The best part, he said, is when they see the response. One dad thanked them for making him a super dad for the weekend by giving him zoo passes.

“If we were successful once,” Marchese said, they’ll continue with the program. Last year, Home Depot had a booth that offered children the chance to plant a plant and take it home. It was quite the hit, especially with a young girl who returned to plant after receiving the tickets to see the zoo.

“If you’re the right person, it reaches in and grabs your heart,” said Marchese.

A new program at the Folsom Library was funded through a donation the club made.

“You help other people out when you can.”

About getting back on schedule and holding in person car events in 2020, he says they’re optimistic, but admits that “with what’s going on, it’s probably going to make things tougher” since car shows and get-togethers aren’t generally social distancing activities and lose quite a bit in a Zoom box.

Little by Little, Rocky’s Patience Pays Off

When the 1964 Ford Falcon Ranchero was released, Beatlemania was racing across the U.S., and Rocky Rockwell told his wife that he was going to buy one.

“We can’t all get in it,” she told him, so they settled for, as Rockwell put it, a regular car.

“I told her someday I’m going to get me one of those,” he said with an infectious smile.

Fast forward nearly half a century after the sons were grown. Rockwell stumbled upon a 1965 Ranchero in Campbell, California, not far from where he’d lived in San Jose.  Rockwell went down to take a look at the car.  The owner wanted $2200.00 for the vehicle.

“Man, that’s too much.  I gotta do all this work,” he told the seller.   He offered $1600.00 and was promptly laughed off the street.

The vehicle had been owned by a guy who hauled trees.  The car was a mess, but there was no rust, which can be a problem in many areas.  Rust begins on the surface, can weaken the metal over time, eventually penetrating the metal and forming holes. Repairing these problems can be costly, sometimes too costly, for restoration work.

A couple of months later, he received a telephone call from his sister.  The car was still for sale in Campbell.  She’d been driving by and noticed the sign.  Rockwell’s brother-in-law asked if Rockwell would mind if he bought the car because “I can fix that one easy.”

“Well, no.”

“Why don’t you just give the guy what he wants?”

Rockwell phoned his sister and asked her to offer the guy $1800.00.  She offered the seller the original amount.

“He took it,” Rockwell said, grinning , “so I got it for $1600.00.”  Patience paid off.

Rockwell let his brother-in-law do most of the restoration, cleaning the floor board with a simple steel wool pad and some elbow grease.  Only one part required replacement.

“I guess I was smart buying it,” Rockwell said.

The restoration has been a slow process of a little here and a little there, or as Rockwell says, “little by little.”  The drum brakes were changed out for disc brakes and they installed a 5 speed transmission from a Ford mustang.  The car was just about the way Rockwell wanted it.

One day, while at a car show, he noticed that his Ranchero sat higher than another one, so he switched out the axle for a fat boy axle and lowered the car down just a bit.  Then, he explained, he was really happy with the car.

The bed still needed work and his brother-in-law came to the rescue again, stopping Rockwell from buying a kit.  He offered to make the bed since he’s a cabinetmaker. The bed is wood and is certainly a centerpiece on the vehicle.

“And then he put that box in it, which is nice because I can put my chairs in it.”  The toolbox sits right behind the cab and fits perfectly, having been custom built.

Then Rockwell was really happy and felt it was the way he wanted it.

Any parts for the car were pretty easy to find, Rockwell said, except for a strip of trim he needed.  He found the trim at Falcon Enterprises.

The car is currently torch red, a Corvette color which is more orange than Ford’s torch red. Rockwell had wavered between a couple of colors until it was time to paint the engine compartment and he was forced to decide.

Rockwell is semi-retired from his lawn maintenance service company, but he works a little here and a little there in case he wants anything else for the car.

“Now I’m satisfied with it,” he said with that same infectious smile that invites you to take a seat and sit a spell.

Chuck’s Cream Puff of a Hot Rod

Chuck’s Cream Puff of a Hot Rod

Chuck Bettinger’s 1955 Ford Thunderbird used to be red.  Really red.  Torch red, the color Ford used in the 1950s, almost a fire engine red.  That color didn’t work so well for Bettinger who chose to transform the car to the stock T-bird blue it sports nowadays, and that color might be why he refers lovingly to his car as a cream puff.

Getting it from that red to the much calmer blue, which Bettinger says looks green to him, and does look green when the sun’s hitting it at that certain angle, wasn’t an easy or quick job.  He couldn’t just take it to the drive through paint shop.

The car was literally taken apart from top to frame so that it could be restored to Bettinger’s taste.  His wife thought she’d like to have the car, but she’s driven it only one time, saying it’s still a hot rod.  Perhaps it is, but it’s a hot rod sporting many conveniences not found on the original – air conditioning, rack and pinion steering, and disc brakes.

“But it still looks like a ’55 T-bird,” Bettinger gladly stated when he showed the car recently at the 22nd annual Sacramento Mustangs & Fords at the Marriott show sponsored by the Sacramento Area Mustang Club.  Show proceeds benefitted the California Automobile Museum’s new roof fund, the Automotive Student Service Education Training (ASSET) Scholarship Foundation at Cosumnes River College, and the Rancho Cordova Police Activities League program.  He towed it down in a specially designed trailer that was on the street not far from his spot near the entrance.

Originally built for comfort, not speed, this was Ford’s first two-seater in nearly two decades. It was lightweight, sported fender skirts and the removable fiberglass hard top which was standard. The soft cover had been optional.

Bettinger discovered the car in the back of a shop, not entirely in one piece.  The vehicle, he learned, originated in Kansas City and was that infamous torch red when first sold in 1954.  Bettinger’s a record keeper, a necessity in his long career as a mechanic at the Oroville Dam powerhouse, which he began in 1961 before the first concrete was poured there.  The vehicle remained in one family, passing through several members before Bettinger came into possession of it.

It’s been his for a little over a year and a half and he’s documented the entire restoration project, which is kept in a photo album he pulled from the trunk.  The project wasn’t quick because restoration projects, he explained, take a back seat to the more lucrative business of collision repair.  And it’s difficult, Bettinger explained, to find someone to do the complete body.

“The biggest thing was waiting to get the body back,” he said, explaining also that the body was walnut-shelled, meaning that it was sand blasted with crushed walnut shells.  This process can cause less stress to the vehicle, and it is often used for cleaning jet engines or even for cleaning carbon build-up in passenger cars.

The hard top is the same blue as the exterior and he painted the dashboard the same color because he likes the monochromatic color scheme, which is disturbed only when he replaces the hard top with the tan soft top from a 1956 model.  The car, this day, was topless.  A self-healing protector was added to save the body from additional wear from the removal and install of the tops.

He’s owned the car about the same amount of time as it took to restore.

The air conditioning system from Classic Auto Air was installed under the dash.  The car runs a 340 hp, 302 engine and has hydroboost.  And it’s for sale.  In fact, several folks discussed the merits of the vehicle with Bettinger while he was showing.  The sign, like Bettinger, is quiet.

The 1949 Buick Super Honeymoon Car

IMG_0300 Original Photo from 1949ish
“My dad bought that car new because he was getting married,” said Tom Barcellos who surprised his folks and the rest of the family with a restoration project taking nearly two decades and as many twists and turns as a mountain road.  “That was their honeymoon car,” he added.

Barcellos has the original pink slip and said that the car has remained in the family for nearly 70 years. When the folks purchased a 1959 Buick, the honeymoon car was given a new job as lunch wagon.

“I was five or six years old, riding in the passenger seat, holding a plate with my dad’s lunch of hamburger or small steak with waxed paper over it, a thermos with a cold drink and some coffee. There was no Tupperware at that time,” Barcellos said.

Five generations have called Barcellos Farms home and work. Barcellos lived in a remodeled home that had belonged to his grandparents not far from the barn where the honeymoon car collected dust and rust over the decades.

“It was rotting away, wasn’t worth anything except sentimental value.”

The car never left the farm until Barcellos began the restoration process. He reached out to cousins and friends for assistance.

The early years in the restoration process were wrought with setbacks, but Barcellos never gave up hope.  When one route was shut down, he’d look for an alternate.

Years passed and Barcellos explained that EBay became a major source for parts, many still boxed.  They were new, old stock.  Shortcuts in the restoration process were as much of a no-no as they would have been in farming.

“I wanted to restore the vehicle to original. The motor was overhauled in Tulare. The guy came out of retirement to do this job,” he said.

The color, a blue-purple in sunlight and almost black otherwise, is the closest match, he explained, to the original color without the lead-based pigments.

“Pictures don’t do it justice.”

Even the interior sports the same color and pattern as the original.

More recently, finding parts online has become easier.

“Parts are readily available if you have the time and ability to search,” he said, adding that “one guy knows another guy.”

That’s how he found many of the suppliers and assistants.  The glass firm was in Washington and offered to drop ship. The car was in California, two miles from where the glass was cut.  The upholstery shop was across the street.

Some things just fall into place when they need to.

His regret is that there were few pictures documenting the restoration process, but those of his mom and dad and their faces upon seeing the newly restored honeymoon Buick were, as they say, priceless.

“We had one like that,” his mom said after the unveiling in front of the clan who’d gathered in early August for the annual birthday celebrations.

“Mom, that is yours,” he said.

Barcellos said that his parents (now 86 and 92) hadn’t known about the restoration and that the car had been out of sight for so long that no one really thought about it.

There are a few more things to do – the exhaust system needs finishing and the steering column needs a bit of work, but then he’ll drive his parents in their honeymoon car once again.

Justin’s Orange Crush

Justin’s Orange Crush

Justin’s quest for the car he’d first owned as a young man took perseverance, a bit of luck and a whole lot of eBay watching. He purchased the 3rd generation 1968 Chevy II Nova nearly 9 years ago after finding it offered on eBay.

“I was afraid to buy a car off of eBay,” he said, but the car called to him.

He kept his eye on the car, housed a day’s drive from his home, and watched the bidding increase. When the bidding ended, he contacted the owner and drove down to take a look.

“I offered the guy about a thousand dollars more than what the bidding went to,” he said.

It seems like the fellow didn’t actually want to sell the car but his dad had cancer and about six months to live and the pair wanted to finish restoring a ’57 Chevy first. Justin’s timing was perfect and the car with its black and gold plate was exactly what he was looking for.

“The black plate tells me that the car has been in the state of California for 30 years. I’m looking for rust issues, stuff like that. And I got 27 registrations with it when I bought the car.”

Justin took the car home where he said that he built it once – rear end, transmission, interior and suspension.

“And then I ripped it all apart and built it again,” he said.

A labor of love for his first crush.

“There’s nothing on the car that hasn’t been touched by me except the paint,” he said.

The color is hugger orange and can also appear yellow or red depending on the light. It’s bold and not a color typically found on a family car, but there also aren’t many family cars sporting 630 hp and that have raced and won on Pinks: All Out.

“The whole car’s been mini-tubbed,” he said. “I didn’t want to lose my back seat. I have three kids. I wanted the big tires on the back but wanted to retain the stock look back there.”

He removed the inside of the car, the inner fender walls, then replaced everything and seam-sealed to keep the car’s unibody from flexing and bending under the power of the 410 cubic inch small block Chevy and that 630 hp.

“The car is more solid than before,” he said.

The car sports all original parts except the hood, which is fiberglass, in order to provide clearance for the carburetor and intake set up. He did change out the front bench seat, however, for buckets. The grills, sidelights and taillights are original. Justin is unwilling to settle for anything that doesn’t say 1968.

“I’ve been looking for the ashtray for seven years. I won’t put one in until I find the one that belongs there. I can’t cut corners.”

Mike Radman’s Bucket List Restoration

  • Mike Radman’s Bucket List Restoration

    Mike Radman spent eight years restoring his 1957 Chevy Bel Air sport coupe. When he

    purchased the vehicle in 1994 it was in really bad shape.

    “I took it off the frame and started with the frame and did the whole car,” he said. “It was a

    lengthy process.”

    Everything, from the front floors to the rear sections, needed to be rebuilt or replaced.

    Restoration included blasting away the rust and returning the car to its original colors of ivory

    over matador red, a color that resembles a reddish orange in certain light. In the rear window is

    an exact model of this very car.

    “One of my former students bought me that,” he said.

    When asked what drew him to this vehicle, especially with all the work required, he said he’d

    wanted one for a long time.

    “It’s on my bucket list I guess you could say,” he added, smiling. “I had another one, but it was a

    sedan, not as elaborate as this one. I wanted to build my own.”

    Radman’s tinkered with cars for many years for fun and out of necessity.

    “When I was growing up, we couldn’t afford to pay anybody to fix our cars, so we fixed our


    He credits a high school shop class for igniting his interest and prefers the classic cars.

    “Newer cars require computers and diagnostics and aren’t as fun to work on,” he said.

    Radman’s is not strictly a show car, although he has received more than 70 awards mostly in the

    stock category, including one at the 2015 Fast in the Fall show. He’s put 5000 miles on the

    engine since he finished the restoration 13 years ago.

    He avoids freeways, enjoys Sunday drives with his wife and has been known to transport the

    occasional lucky bride to her wedding or fortunate young woman to her quinceañera.

    Although the car is nearly 60 years old, Radman says that finding parts has not been a problem.

    Reproduction parts are readily available and the paint can also be specially mixed.

    “They reproduce this actual car now,” he said, but Radman won’t buy one. They look the same,

    but he says the original is a car the driver has to drive. Reproductions, he added, handle like new

    cars and lack personality, something Radman’s car is filled with.

  • His car, like other old model classics, has distinguishing characteristics not often found on the
    newer models.
    “People take pictures of just parts of the car because of the design,” he said. “Even my food
    There’s no visible gas door because it is concealed behind the chrome tail fin, located just above
    the rear taillight. That isn’t a CD player under the radio, it’s a tissue dispenser. And the radio is
    strictly AM, but he’s not concerned that it only broadcasts talk shows and baseball games.
    “I’d rather listen to the car purring than the radio.”

Last Call Car Show Fundraiser

Classic auto, farm equipment and football fans turned out for the annual Last Call Car Show to support the California Agriculture Museum (formerly The Heidrick Ag History Museum and Event Center) in Woodland. Featured rare beauties included a yellow and white 1956 Mercury Montclair, tan over black 1935 Ford Cabriolet and copper 1962 Volkswagen double cab. Several Camaros were spotted and there was a yellow 1949 Willys-Overland Jeepster, black 1969 Montego MX convertible, blue 1928 Chevrolet pick-up and turquoise/tan 1950 Mercury convertible with bucket seats. Car songs, including “Hot Rod Lincoln,” “Highway Patrol” and “Little Nash Rambler,” helped set the mood. The orange 1934 3-window Ford, 1966 black over red Chevrolet Corvette and red and white 1963 Galaxie 500 were viewer favorites. The pre-1973 restored, stock, modified and not-yet-restored cars were located inside the museum’s wing amidst artifacts and sets.

Carlton Cordeiro’s copper Model A

Carlton Cordeiro’s copper Model A isn’t what one would expect. It’s not black. The top’s not chopped and that color, he said, is actually a 1976 Cadillac paint color given to him.

“I try not to spend money,” he said.

His career was construction, but his passion was cars. He has tinkered with cars since before he was old enough to drive and has rebuilt many during his lifetime, including a 1933 Willys. But his passion soon turned towards a 1930 Model A he found in a San Francisco garage where he was working. The car wasn’t for sale at that time. Six months later, however, the car was offered to him for a thousand dollars more. Restoring another 1933 Willys would have been too costly, he said, and anyway he wanted the Model A, which turned out to be “a bucket of rust.”

He took that rusty body and began rebuilding the car from the chassis up.

“I did everything,” he said. “Nobody touched it.”

He built 90% of what he needed and scoured swap meets for parts he couldn’t build. Cordeiro, a mostly self-taught mechanic who enjoyed hot rod magazines, spent the next several years working on the car.

“Your personality is in your car,” he said.

His personality, then, seems a bit rebel.

The copper Model A certainly sets it apart from others that have been restored to Henry Ford’s original black.

Painting is one of the few things Cordeiro hired someone else to do for him.

“The colors don’t match,” he said. “He’s going to do it again,” he added pointing to some runs that only he or another car aficionado would notice.

He didn’t keep the original headlights, saying that he didn’t want big ugly ones, and he didn’t chop the roof as he didn’t want to sit hunched over.

The most original piece on the car, aside from the chassis, is the dented hood trim, which could have been purchased brand new.

“I kept this,” he said, “for nostalgia.”

The piece, which he likes to ask people if they know what it is, was used when refueling the car. It protected the paint on the hood since the 1930’s fuel tank had been located in the front. The tank was moved to the vehicle’s rear in 1932.

Cordeiro spent more than five years, off and on, rebuilding the car, keeping track of every nut and bolt he removed and making sure that he had no leftovers. Client work always came before his hobby.

Although the car was still a work in progress and needed some upholstery work, he decided it was time to enter the car in a show. The car debuted at the inaugural Gears and Beers event and placed third. Not bad at all for what had once been a rusty body that he’d pushed into his garage several years earlier.

The body

Burgiemen’s 2015 River City Classic

2015 River City Classic

Nestled along the Sacramento River for the Burgiemen’s 2015 River City Classic were more than 250 cars and trucks in myriad colors, shapes and sizes, including a completely outfitted 1970 Cadillac ambulance, Studebaker, Austin Healy and a 21 window VW bus. The event was enjoyed by young and old (and a gaggle of geese) meandering along walks, across grass and seeking shade. Awards were presented to car owners and supporters, including several well represented car clubs (Over the Hill Gang, Thunderbolts, Italian Hot Rod Association and Capital City Cruisers). Sacramento Challengers received the Club Participation award. Best of Show was awarded to the 1934 Ford Sedan, Peoples’ Choice went to a 1950 Ford Sedan, but the most excited recipient was perhaps Lisa Hale who received the Burgiemen’s Ladies Pick for her 1950 Studebaker. Awards for best flame, best upholstery, best graphics and best motor were also handed out. Petri Hawkins-Byrd of the Judge Judy show awarded the Judge Judy Pick to David Jackson for his 1939 Ford convertible after first giving the audience a few laughs. Funds from this show will benefit a number of charities, including Make A Wish Foundation.
