Steve Kimmel

1932 Ford 5W Coupe

Steve Kimmel is a car guy extraordinaire. Back in the early 80's Steve built what remains as one of our favorite cars of all time. Heavily influenced by American Graffiti, he created his own version of the Milner Coupe in blue. Not a clone by any means, it still had the look and stance of our favorite ride, and most importantly it was just a beautiful deuce hot rod.

Featured in Street Rodder, it attracted quite a bit of attention and Steve eventually sold it. He's currently building another '32 Ford 5W which may or may not turn out to be a Graffiti Coupe clone. But however it materializes, it's bound to be special. 'da Hui has big Aloha for Mr. Kimmel and can't wait to see the results.
