Greg and Gail Wilson’s “Driftwood” is this week’s Meguiar’s Ride of The Week!

This 1929 Ford Woodie resides in Louisville, KY and is the result of a life long dream to build a car to go to Detroit’s Autorama to qualify for the BASF Great 8 which it did in 2020. The name “Driftwood” came from the name of the hotel where they stayed on their honeymoon.

Hercules Motor Car Company out of Tampa, FL was tasked with the build along with Brad Starks Rod and Custom located in Paducah, KY. The plating project went to the staff at Dan’s Polishing and Chrome.
