We were super-stoked to see the 1932 Ford Roadster owned and loved by Hot Rod Magazine’s Gray Baskerville. It’s not only a righteous ride, but has crossed over 230,000 miles in the name of having a good time telling car stories to the masses. It was great to see it in the Hot Rod Magazine / MotorTrend booth at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV. It’s also on the cover of the 75th Anniversary issue of Hot Rod – check it out! @hotrodmagazine @semashow #32ford #hotrod #sema #baskerville #toocool #adeeos #legend #icon
