Douglas Cox was a teenager living on a Kentucky farm in the 1960s and not yet old enough to get a driver's license, when one day while attending the state fair in Louisville, he heard his father tell another man that he might get a Ford Model A pickup to restore.
"He and I had talked several times about building a hot rod!" Cox says. "I could not believe my ears. My dreams of a hot rod began to fade and I could not envision an ancient pickup as something neat."
