Santa Paula native makes it to Kruisin’ Magazine

April 01, 2009
Santa Paula native Wayne Rhodes has his hot rod featured in last month’s edition of Kruisin’ Magazine. His 1929 Model A roadster is part of an eight page spread in the magazine. Rhodes started out with a rusted out ‘29 Ford roadster body. About a year later, doing all of the work himself with parts found at swap meets, he came up with this beauty. It’s got power too, with a 350-inch Chevrolet small block V-8 and a 3-speed transmission.This isn’t his only work of art. He also recently finished a 1936 Ford coupe for his father.
