JUST A FEW MORE PICS.
Well I got the car out for a few runs Friday. Met an old friend who was in town for lunch at Ford's Garage restaurant. Had to take a few more pics.
Then I got a call from the sign place that the JAKE 2.0 decal was ready. So I drove over and they put it on.looks great!
A quick reason for the JAKE 2.0.
Many of you may remember my posts about my dad a few years ago next month on dad's passing at 94 years old.
His name was Nils Jackson Eri......
Everyone that is friends or family and his mother and aunts and uncles always called him JACK. In their karate world the students called him Mr. E.
Dad was in the national guard. He was the Command Sgt Major for the state of Texas under several generals. Dad made many trips to Ft Hood and many times would have a driver.
One time when I was about 10 years old, dad came home from summer camp and told us he had the best driver at Hood this time. The drivers name was Jake. So dad would say, Jake, let's go to the tank range or Jake, takes us to HQ or Jake let's get some lunch. So on and so on.
So my brother and I started calling dad JAKE. Jake, take us to a movie, JAKE, take us to the pool, JAKE , take us to 7-11 for a slurpy. Lololol. So JAKE stuck
So for over 50 years my brother and I, our close friends, my mom, and family friends called Jack JAKE.
So this mustang build in part was done as and is a tribute to that man, "JAKE". His hobby was cars, he grew up with Ed Wilkins who loaned Carrol Shelby his MG100 to race his first race, knew Carrol through Ed, enjoyed sports car club in Dallas for decades.
Jake was the BEST dad anyone could have had. Gentle Giant as he was know by many. Caring, loving, sharing, and strict at times dad.
So here are a few pics of JAKE for JAKE.
