Default Re: Ralph Acierno - Retrospective

Nice retrospective, Jerry Lee. One of my favorites, and I go back far enough that I remember that burgundy 3 window coupe from 1955. I believe that the five window coupe is from 1952 when they still had the fenders on them. Interesting that the spare tire bracket is still mounted on the deck lid and the door handle still on the door. Mr. Acierno built a lot of cars for others also. Have run across stories of other drivers who had a car built by him. That's a fun story Rick. There are a lot of stories like that about those guys. Seems that a lot of guys from Lakeside were in the tow truck business at one time or another. During the Sixties, a lot of those trucks were adorned with nice leaf lettering. Some good looking trucks.
