Meet Carol Compton, an awesome grandma who knows every inch of her 1940 Ford business coupe by heart. She wins numerous hot rod shows and changed every piece of her car to her liking.

Compton’s car isn’t meant to be fast, she’s happy cruising at 70 and she mostly enjoys the attention she gets from other people while she’s driving it because it makes her proud of the car she has.

Grandmas also don’t want their kids and grandchildren to know the wild things they did back in the day that they now frown upon younger people doing.

The De Luxe Fords of 1938 featured a more sloping hood and ornamental heart-shaped grille. This look was passed on to the standard line for 1939, as the De Luxe Fords gained sharp v-shaped grilles with vertical bars.
